Winter Hike


Here is a photo I shot during my winter hikes in Reinfeld. I did hike so much there that I am actually not sure if there is still a path where I didn’t walk. I often use Google Maps to check out where I could go hike, but I have seen a lot around the town, I hiked in all directions. The result is that I have tons of photos, that I probably never will finish to upload, but this is not too bad. Sometimes the weather is so bad that you don’t go out to shoot new ones, if … Continue reading Winter Hike

Harbor Area In Lübeck


Fun fact, I have 5200 images that I didn’t upload yet, because taking photos is much easier than preparing or uploading them. At times I should upload older ones. Above you can see a photo I shot in Lübeck near the harbor area. You can see the Trave River in the photo. This is one of the photos where I wondered how it would turn out, I shot the photo after I got my D7100. I believe I was drawn to the colours in the heaven and the reflections in the water. The photo was shot in the morning, during … Continue reading Harbor Area In Lübeck

Eurasian Treecreeper Again


One day ago I uploaded a photo of an Eurasian treecreeper. I edited another photo today, and thought I upload one of these birds again. Without taking a look at the metadata of the image, I assume that I shot the photo the same day. I shot several photos of them in February, because I know where they hang around. I will upload more photos of Eurasian treecreepers in the future, once I have edited them a bit. Meanwhile you might be interested to take a look at my other bird photos, I am happy that my collection is growing. Continue reading Eurasian Treecreeper Again

Forestry In Northern Germany


Sometimes when I go hiking here in Reinfeld, I see the result of the local forestry logging. Sometimes I find those big paths of the heavy equipment, and the logs on the side. Even if there is logging, I often still see animals in those forest areas. Here in the north we have mainly small forest areas, not so big like the forest areas in Thuringia or Bavaria. But it’s still interesting to hike through smaller forests, and it can take you time too depending on the size, but usually it takes no more than 30 minutes or 1 hour … Continue reading Forestry In Northern Germany

Running Up A Tree


It seems I shot a photo of an Eurasian treecreeper, that’s at least what I found out during my research and when I compared the results with my photo. I saw this kind of bird quite often since I am in Reinfeld. I usually see them near the pond at the trees, and it almost looks like they run up trees. If my research is right, then it would fit, because the German name for the Eurasian treecreeper is “Waldbaumläufer”, which means something like “Forest Tree Runner”, literally translated. As said, they really run up trees, and I wouldn’t even … Continue reading Running Up A Tree

Pretty Foggy


I noticed that I don’t have a lot of fog pictures on my blog. But I still have some in my folders, photos that I should upload over time to fill this category a little bit too. I shot the photo some time ago, at the time when I shot this and this photo. I like foggy days, and it’s a perfect time to go out, because it appears so calm and beautiful. Fog is very interesting, but it can be challenging in photography due to the bad lighting conditions. Continue reading Pretty Foggy
