Reinfeld during Winter


Here is a photo that I shot during a Winter in Reinfeld. It’s not the entire town but some houses near the Herrenteich pond, which is frozen and full of snow in the picture. I’ve taken a similar photo when the pond was not frozen but it’s not the same view. I hope you liked the winter picture. I wasn’t too happy with it at first but when I boosted the white colors and after cropping it a little bit better, I thought it looked fantastic. What do you think about the photo?

Reinfeld and Herrenteich


I still have so many photos of the time when I’ve been in Reinfeld, that I will probably take some years until I uploaded all photos. Above you can see a photo of this place and the pond called “Herrenteich”. But the same counts for the city L├╝beck, the place where I live. I don’t think that I ever will be able to upload the whole backlog, but on the other side it’s great to have a massive library, where you can look for photos that you want to share today. It’s also great for photography breaks, because you will … Continue reading Reinfeld and Herrenteich

Hidden Gray Heron


Sometimes when I walk around the pond called Herrenteich in Reinfeld, I see Gray Herons, it’s just not easy to take photos of them. The large pond is divided by a footbridge, and it separates the pond in two areas. So, one pond side is a natural reserve and walkers can only view it from the bridge and a couple of other spots, but overall the area is well shielded by plants and trees, and this is intentional so that the animals and nature is protected there. The photo in this post is shot from one of the few spots … Continue reading Hidden Gray Heron

Weekly Photo Challenge: Landscape


The recent WordPress Photo Challenge is about landscapes. I was outside yesterday and shot the photo you can see in this post. It’s a pond called Herrenteich in Reinfeld. It’s a great place to hike, I liked the place during the winter, but now that the season is changing, I like it even more. I find a lot of birds there, there are many fields and smaller forests and beautiful trails near the pond, it’s a calming place. Since I am here, only really bad weather could hinder me to go out.

First Winter Hikes


As I mentioned, I moved temporary to take care of my uncle until he feels better, but that doesn’t mean that I have no free time, because his wife takes care too, and that means there is still enough time for myself. I know the village already, but I never checked the whole area and as someone who likes to hike, I thought it would be a good idea to do that. The place could be interesting in summer, there are lots of fields and farms, some smaller forests, and very small lakes. We have winter and everything should be … Continue reading First Winter Hikes
