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

First Long Hike This Year


Yesterday was a sunny day, and it was expected that the weather would be good today too. Well, today it was not very sunny and still cold, but the weather was good enough to convince me to go for a long hike. I packed my camera into the bag and visited my grandma, and after “Kaffee und Kuchen” I started my hike. I didn’t have something special in my mind, I just wanted to get out of the city and randomly decided which direction to go. I left the city on the north-west side because that is where I would … Continue reading First Long Hike This Year

Forest Path


If you’re regular reader of my blog, you might have noticed that I like to take pictures of paths. I am not exactly sure why, but I do like some ways so much that I just take the picture. I think it’s also about the landscape on the left and on the right, or the weather conditions that can make a scene look interesting. The photo in this post was taken last December during a hike through a small forest in Reinfeld. Continue reading Forest Path

Riesebusch Nature


Today I took my camera and decided to hike in Bad Schwartau, a town 5 km north or northwest of Lübeck. There is a forest called Riesebusch and I wanted to hike there to take some new photos. Today I didn’t take a look at the weather report and it became quite windy and cloudy when I arrived. It was not the perfect weather to go hiking and to take photos. I had luck and it didn’t rain too early, but I was caught by the rain 10 minutes before I arrived at home and had to change clothes. I … Continue reading Riesebusch Nature

The Hiking Dream


Today I hiked with a friend together along one of our local rivers. I didn’t have my camera with me this time, and that was really bad because we spotted some grey herons on our way on the other side of the river, and it would have been close enough for my 300mm lens, but that just on a sidenote. I want to talk about something else in this post, we talked about the nature in and around our city and that we certainly have some cool places here in Lübeck, but we both dreamed a bit and asked ourselves … Continue reading The Hiking Dream
