Baltic Sea Swans


Here is a snapshot that I shot sometime ago when I hiked somewhere between Timmendorfer Strand and Travem√ľnde. I saw two swans playing in the Baltic Sea water. It’s both amazing, when they land or when they take off. I always though they are pretty playful, in Reinfeld for example I was standing on a bridge and some swans flew over my head as if they wanted to show their flying skills. This together with the white plumage makes them look majestic. There are more photos of swans on my blog if you like to see some other images. Continue reading Baltic Sea Swans

Common Blackbird


Not much to say about the photo above, apart from the fact that it is a Common Blackbird. We have them everywhere flying around in our districts. Currently I do more sports than hiking, and when I just roam around in our city districts, I shoot more common photos, like common birds, cats and stuff like that.

But maybe I shouldn’t complain, because I … Continue reading Common Blackbird

Beautiful Duck


I do already have quite a lot of duck photos, but I always like to take new ones because they are both, beautiful and a nice subject to practice and experiment with photography.

I wasn’t really at eye level, I was standing on a bridge but with my Tamron 70-300mm lens, I can give the impression that I am at eye level … Continue reading Beautiful Duck

I Don’t Know This Bird


Two hours before Germany would play against Mexico, I didn’t know what to do with my time. I decided to go outside, walking around with my camera. I shot a couple of bird photos, but one photo was difficult because there were branches in front of the bird. I shot the photo anyway, and I had difficulties to tell what type of bird it would be. I thought I could see it better at home on my PC screen, but I was wrong. Yes, I can see the image now in large, but I am still not sure what type … Continue reading I Don’t Know This Bird
