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

11 Miles Hike


We had a lot of rain over the last weeks, not the perfect weather to go out and to take photos, but the last two days were good. Yesterday, I checked the weather report online, because the previous day was already good, and it seemed it would be the perfect day for a hike. I was right, and I am glad I used the chance, because the weather will get worse again as it seems. I started my hike in the morning so that I could see the sunrise in the forest, and I heard the early birds chirping around … Continue reading 11 Miles Hike

Winter Landscape Hike


As I mentioned in some of my earlier posts, there are different smaller forests and fields outside of Reinfeld. We have fallow deer and roe deer in the forests outside of the town, and there are wild boars in the shrubbery near the pond but they are shy at day time and only come out at night. I really don’t want to meet wild boars when I am hiking, because they can be dangerous, especially after they did breed. When you spot a female wild boar with offspring, it can end badly, because they might try to aggressively protect the … Continue reading Winter Landscape Hike

Forest Path


Going through a forest is something very relaxing. Hearing nothing else than the branches and the wood in the wind, hearing the crows and many other birds and animals, that is absolutely enjoyable. I shot the photo above early in the morning when I was wandering around a pond. The trail led me through a forest on the other side of the pond.  If you take the trails where I am right now, you get a mixed view of fields, waters and forests. I am surprised how many birds there are, especially many little ones, but I had no luck … Continue reading Forest Path

Path To The Nature


Here in Reinfeld where I am now for a while, it does only take me a 10 minutes walk to see the nature. I spotted some interesting places, including interesting paths. There is a pond with a lot of birds, but I didn’t have a chance to take photos of the birds as they were too far away for my lens. Yesterday I saw a woman with a quite big lens, I assume she did use a 300mm or 400mm lens and took pictures of cormorants, but they were too far away for my 105mm lens, and it’s sad to … Continue reading Path To The Nature

Now It Looks More Like Autumn


Actually I wanted to share the two photos of this post a week ago, but I couldn’t do that because a family member came to the hospital and my attention was there. Talking about the photos, we had a very long summer, it took some time to see falling leaves, but you can now say it starts to look like autumn. I shot the photos over a week ago when I was hiking.
