Above is a photo that I shot during a hike near the Wakenitz, a tributary of the Trave River. I like that area because it’s possible to find grey herons and other birds there, but I didn’t have a lot of luck in this area with my Tamron 70-300mm lens. But I still like to walk there, because it’s a beautiful area. So, on my way I found this large house with a thatched roof. Since I was not happy with the original photo, I edited it and came up with the result above. It looks a bit like it was painted, but it is somehow interesting. The original had a too bright green and I didn’t like that, but here is how it looked like before major adjustments…

That is an incredible piece of thatching. I’ve seen a lot of simple thatched roofs, but that’s very special.
I see them often too, they are very common in Northern Germany near the coast.
That is very elaborate thatching.
They are common here near the coast, but that one was very large and impressing. 🙂
We don’t have them here. It’s an old art and they would be a terrible bushfire risk.
Yes, with the Australian temperatures I can imagine this. Here they are a bit of a tradition, but once in a year you hear something about burning roofs here too. Mostly old barns with thatched roofs. So, when there is a fire, thatched roofs make it definitely worse for the firefighter crew.
