Happy Places


The recent WordPress Photo Challenge comes with the theme “Happy Place”. I do not think that there is just one single place where I feel relaxed or happy, I know several happy places. My home acts as a safe haven where I can relax, where I can get creative, where I can mute problems, where I can feel happy most of the time. The same counts for the homes of family members, or the homes of close friends. But there is more than just that.

14 Miles Hike Again, Enjoying The Schellbruch


Today I decided on impulse to walk to the Schellbruch again, it’s quite a long hike with 14 miles, but it’s worthwhile as there are many interesting things on the route through Lübeck.

The photo above is a new one I shot today, the weather report said it would be a cloudy day, but not rainy. It was a completely different colour setting … Continue reading 14 Miles Hike Again, Enjoying The Schellbruch

14 Miles Hike For Photography, Discovering The Schellbruch

There are over 200 different bird species counted and it’s said that 90 have already bred. It explains why it’s worthy of protection. The Schellbruch is a protected … Continue reading 14 Miles Hike For Photography, Discovering The Schellbruch
