Footbridge in Bad Oldesloe


Here is a photo I took in Bad Oldesloe. While the colors of the original looked great, I didn’t like the heavy lens flare. I went through a couple of black and white settings until I found a vintage one that did hide most of the lens flare very well. On top of that, it transformed the photo in a very positive way. The reason why I shot the photo was that I liked the arch of the bridge from my point of view. Together with the housing in the background and the stairs, it just made me want to … Continue reading Footbridge in Bad Oldesloe

Brenner Moor


I shot the picture above in Bad Oldesloe, a town between L├╝beck and Hamburg. I took the photo in an area called “Brenner Moor”. By the way, “Moor” means “swamp” in English.

Trip to Bad Oldesloe, Local Newspaper, Nature and Good Weather


Some weeks ago I thought spring weather would start, but then we had again several days in a row with really bad weather. Today was different, I woke up early in the morning with no tasks, I looked out of the window and I saw already a blue heaven and sunshine at 9am. I didn’t think a lot, I just started to pack my camera bag. Spontaneously, I got the idea to do a trip to Bad Oldesloe. I’ve never seen a lot of this town, I’ve been there, but only one time, it was the time when I was … Continue reading Trip to Bad Oldesloe, Local Newspaper, Nature and Good Weather
