Orion Nebula And Orion’s Belt


Above you can see a test shot. I randomly shot a photo of the night sky. I don’t like the photo as much as the other one that I uploaded, but it’s still interesting to research about the stars in the image. Someone gave me the tip to upload my night sky photos to Astrometry if I want to know what is in the picture. The site is basically analyzing the image and will show you different tags of the stars, star constellations, planets and so on. Together with the program Stellarium, this is really useful. I am afraid, astrophotography … Continue reading Orion Nebula And Orion’s Belt

Beautiful Big Wheel


Here is another shot that I tried out yesterday. I saw the big wheel in one of the Christmas market areas and thought this would make a great photo.

Fun fact, the ‘Märchenwald’ exists as long as I can think, that means my … Continue reading King Thrushbeard

Farms And Fields


I still didn’t finish to upload all the photos that I shot during my time in Reinfeld, and I guess I will never finish it. But as mentioned often, I don’t want to forget these photos, they remind me of that time and I liked the place a lot. Also there are times where I don’t want to get out with my camera, it’s that time right now because I am in a lazy mood. This mood can however be used to upload previous photos. In this post you can see a photo that shows the typical landscape in Reinfeld. … Continue reading Farms And Fields
