Marcelo De Castro Engineer/Nature and Travel Photographer



While seeing the world while traveling for his job, Marcelo De Castro began his creative relationship with photography. Since 2010, his love for nature and the outdoors has directed his focus to landscape photography.

The Neuschwanstein Castle has always been my favorite castle and my hope is to see it in the future. Hours have been spent placing the pieces of the 1,000 piece puzzle to create the complete image. This winter photo by Marcelo is one that truly captures the mystery and beauty of this amazing castle.

For the sake of photography, Marcelo now visits places he normally would not go, at times he normally would not be traveling, and braves weather which previously would have kept him inside. Photography has broadened the scope of his travel in the hope of discovering new places to find the perfect scene.
