Black And White Landscape Photo

I wanted to share this photo even if it’s just a black and white landscape photo. However, liked it how the image composition turned out when I played with the cropping tool in Lightroom. It’s not a very special image, it’s just the composition that I like with the tree on the left side. Also the image shows the very typical North German landscape. Everything is flat here, and except for small bushes, rivers, the sea and small forests, we do have many fields in Schleswig Holstein. Continue reading Black And White Landscape Photo

Elbe–Lübeck Canal

I thought it would be time to upload a landscape photo again. In this post you can see the Elbe–Lübeck Canal. It connects the Elbe and the Trave River in Lübeck. Sometimes I like to hike there because you can spot cormorants there, and with a bit of luck it’s also possible to find grey herons or sea eagles in that area. I saw them a the canal too several times, but of course when I didn’t have my camera with me. But I could take photos of these birds somewhere else already, fortunately. But one thing is sure, the … Continue reading Elbe–Lübeck Canal

Reinfeld Landscape

Here is a photo that I shot in May when I still was in Reinfeld. The photo should show how beautiful the landscape is there. The photo should also explain why I loved my hikes there. It’s very common to hear that people from Lübeck say that there is nothing to see in Reinfeld. The town is so small that there is indeed not much to see, but that is only true if you don’t get out of your comfort zone. This place is an absolute insider tip, the town is not too special but everything around it is. You … Continue reading Reinfeld Landscape

Talking With A Farmer

Today I was outside again, and I took the paths through the small forests, around the ponds, and over fields. Close to a farm (not the one in the photo) near a small forest, I watched over the fields and into the sky, because I was looking for bird of prey, and then a farmer greeted me and asked if I would look for birds. The farmer was very old and friendly, and I told him that I was looking for bird of prey, and he replied that this area is perfect if I want to find them, and he … Continue reading Talking With A Farmer

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.
