Foreground and Background


I think the image at the top was an experimental shot. I could imagine that I liked the dark forest background and that I wanted to find out how the depth of field looks like if I focus on the plants. There is a small meadow in front of the forest. Nothing more to add, it’s not a special photo but I somehow like how the foreground is separated from the background. Continue reading Foreground and Background

A Chat With Another Photographer During The Hike


Here is yet again a hiking path photo. I shot the photo today and I met another photographer on this path and we had a long talk about photography. He had a big dog, and I also saw that he had DSLR camera on the shoulder and I asked him if he has seen roe deer in the direction he came from, and he replied “No, not yet, but today I just went into the forest to take portraits of my dog”, and that’s how our conversation started. Often when I meet other photographers, it can happen that we get … Continue reading A Chat With Another Photographer During The Hike

Sometimes the weather is so bad that you don’t go out to shoot new ones, if … Continue reading Winter Hike

Forestry In Northern Germany


Sometimes when I go hiking here in Reinfeld, I see the result of the local forestry logging. Sometimes I find those big paths of the heavy equipment, and the logs on the side.

But it’s still interesting to hike through smaller forests, and it can take you time too depending on the size, but usually it takes no more than 30 minutes or 1 hour … Continue reading Forestry In Northern Germany
