White Flower


Here is another photo taken with my new Nikon 40mm Micro lens. It’s some time ago since I shot my last flower photos, because most of my lenses don’t do it well. Minimum focus distance was not really a big thing with my old point-and-shoot camera nor with my smartphone, that’s why I shot many photos of flowers back then. But my DSLR lenses didn’t do the job well, until now. So, I think once in a while there will be flower photos again on my blog. Continue reading White Flower

Forest Plants


Above is a photo that I shot during my time in Reinfeld. I liked the small forest areas a lot, especially in May when all plants started to grow. When I hiked through the forest areas on small paths, I did enjoy to look at the growing plants on the sides. I am not sure how the plant in the picture above is called, but I saw this everywhere on my way through the forest. Continue reading Forest Plants

Signs of Spring


As I was hiking two days ago as mentioned on my blog, I also looked for interesting photo subjects on my way. The first signs of spring were visible, I did for example see the first Snowdrops (Galanthus) growing and I had to take photos. The photo in this post was actually shot with my Tamron 70-300 mm lens. I had the tele lens with me because I wanted to photograph deer,  but I can also use this lens to take photos of things like flowers. The lens is actually not too bad for flower photography, because the long focal … Continue reading Signs of Spring

Flower Pots In A Parking Structure


You don’t find a lot of colours in this cold season, but when you do, it’s a picture worth. One of the local malls has a quite huge parking structure, and that’s where I found the flowers that you can see in my photo. I used my 50mm lens to take the photo, because that’s the lens I had attached but this allowed me to highlight the foreground. I saw several big flower pots and the flower looks like lavender to me, but I am not that great in botanic and I wouldn’t wonder if I am wrong. I know … Continue reading Flower Pots In A Parking Structure

Forest Flowers


Here is a photo that I shot last year when I hiked through one of the small forests in Reinfeld. I liked it there when spring started, it was so relaxing to walk through the small forest areas and seeing all the things grow. I did also like the winter there, but the spring was definitely more interesting. However, I took tons of photos in both seasons. I think I will hike there again this year, it’s just sad that I can’t do this every day now that I am back in the city since quite some time, because the … Continue reading Forest Flowers
