Grey Heron In A Beautiful Forest Pond


I shot way too many photos during my stay in Reinfeld. I stayed there from winter over spring to the summer, and it was really fantastic to see how everything changed in the course of the seasons. The winter was ok but when the colors of the spring showed up it became even more interesting, and the start of the summer was pretty awesome there. In retrospect, I would say that Reinfeld is a very beautiful place, especially in the warmer seasons. The photo in this post was shot when summer started. I was hiking through one of the forests … Continue reading Grey Heron In A Beautiful Forest Pond

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

This Cute Forest Dweller Did Let Me Take A Photo


My uncle survived the much feared brain surgery in the hospital, the time after the surgery was a bit difficult due to several post-operative symptoms, but now there is progress every day and I hope this will continue. It was a busy time for us all, so that I didn’t want to update my blog. He is now back at home, and the doctors said it’s unlikely but he could still get some bad symptoms like epileptic seizures, and that’s why I am at his home again in Reinfeld, just to see how things go. I will be there for … Continue reading This Cute Forest Dweller Did Let Me Take A Photo

Winter Hike


Here is a photo I shot during my winter hikes in Reinfeld. I did hike so much there that I am actually not sure if there is still a path where I didn’t walk. I often use Google Maps to check out where I could go hike, but I have seen a lot around the town, I hiked in all directions. The result is that I have tons of photos, that I probably never will finish to upload, but this is not too bad. 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. Even if there is logging, I often still see animals in those forest areas. Here in the north we have mainly small forest areas, not so big like the forest areas in Thuringia or Bavaria. 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

Deer In The Forest


I shot the two above yesterday in the morning during my hike through a forest. I saw deer but the first photos didn’t turn out well as I really didn’t expect to see them. But then I was more attentive, and around 10 minutes later I saw deer again, I shot the two photos you can see in this post. I think the photos are ok, I shot them at 300mm and cropped the first one a little bit. It’s really awesome if you find deer in the morning, it’s a nice experience and makes you enjoy the hike even … Continue reading Deer In The Forest
