Beautiful Path


The weather is very good at the moment and it’s getting hotter. I’ve been a bit active outside. I was running every second day, and other days I just went outside to walk a little bit. One day I had my camera with me and I had my 40mm macro lens attached because I wanted to look for bugs, frogs, and other small creatures. But guess what happened? A grey heron did land on a tree directly in front of me. Not worth it to take a photo with a 40mm lens, but damn, I was mad that I didn’t … Continue reading Beautiful Path

Forest Path


Some of you might know, I love taking photos of beautiful paths I discovered during hikes, and I already uploaded quite a few photos of paths. So, at the top is a new one. At least a freshly uploaded photo because I actually shot the photo back then in 2016. The photo was taken when I walked through a forest in Reinfeld. It was a calm place surrounded by beautiful nature. I already uploaded a similar photo here. Continue reading Forest Path

Beautiful Path


Some of you know that I like to take photos of paths. The subject is not special, because you just take the photo on the way you go, but what I like is that there are tons of different possibilities how paths can look like. I don’t take these photos randomly, I take them when I think “I find it beautiful where I stand right now”. These photos also remind me of special hikes that I did. In fact when I look at the picture in this post, it reminds me of the sound of birds, the smell of meadows … Continue reading Beautiful Path

Thatched Roof


Above is a photo that I shot during a hike near the Wakenitz, a tributary of the Trave River. I like that area because it’s possible to find grey herons and other birds there, but I didn’t have a lot of luck in this area with my Tamron 70-300mm lens. But I still like to walk there, because it’s a beautiful area. So, on my way I found this large house with a thatched roof. Since I was not happy with the original photo, I edited it and came up with the result above. It looks a bit like it … Continue reading Thatched Roof

Forest Path


I like to take photos of the paths I am hiking. Above you can see a photo that I shot during a hike through one of the small forests in Reinfeld. It was a beautiful May day. The place was interesting during winter but during springtime it was amazing. It was interesting to see the transition. I discovered all the interesting paths during winter but to see the transition to green was an awesome experience. During winter it was sometimes creepy to be alone in the forest, because it looked desolate and you heard the noises of the boars and … Continue reading Forest Path

Finally, Hiking Weather


We had some very mixed days again, some already warm but also stormy days. Today in the morning, I watched out of the window and thought the weather would be perfect for a hike. It was warm but I felt a fresh breeze when I opened the window. This really seemed to be perfect, because if it’s too hot, it’s not good either. I like it if there is a breeze when I go hiking, because then it’s not a torture and you don’t sweat too much. So, I packed my camera and the 70-300m lens into the bag and … Continue reading Finally, Hiking Weather
