Weekly Photo Challenge: Narrow


I find the recent WordPress Photo Challenge with the subject “Narrow” pretty interesting. I do especially like narrow paths when I hike, although not all of them are narrow, but sometimes they are. Weeks ago I found a very narrow path somewhere outside of the city, and I found it so beautiful that I had to take a photo. I think the photo fits very well to the challenge.

A Chat With Another Photographer During The Hike


Here is yet again a hiking path photo. I shot the photo today and I met another photographer on this path and we had a long talk about photography. He had a big dog, and I also saw that he had DSLR camera on the shoulder and I asked him if he has seen roe deer in the direction he came from, and he replied “No, not yet, but today I just went into the forest to take portraits of my dog”, and that’s how our conversation started. Often when I meet other photographers, it can happen that we get … Continue reading A Chat With Another Photographer During The Hike

Hike Into The May


As I’ve been mainly in the city Lübeck the last two weeks, it was cool to see how things have grown in the nature of Reinfeld now that I am back for some weeks. Today was the first May, and I thought a hike into the May would be a nice idea. Look at the beautiful bushes in the photo, and all the blossom. I heard a loud hum from the bush, a collective noise caused by all the hard-working bees. Apart from that, May smells good, but since it gets warmer, I shouldn’t forget something to drink on my … Continue reading Hike Into The May

A Black Dog Photo


Here is a photo of a dog I met yesterday during my hike.  First I thought the dog would be lonely, but the dog owners were just 30 meters away and followed up. The dog seemed to know the path, and enjoyed to show the owners the way. Also it was funny to see how the dog did carry the stick on his path. You can get some interesting photos with a 300mm lens, because you have enough distance to take photos in all kind of situations without interfering too much. I still like to take photos with my other … Continue reading A Black Dog Photo

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

Forestry In Northern Germany


Sometimes when I go hiking here in Reinfeld, I see the result of the local forestry logging. Sometimes I find those big paths of the heavy equipment, and the logs on the side. Even if there is logging, I often still see animals in those forest areas. Here in the north we have mainly small forest areas, not so big like the forest areas in Thuringia or Bavaria. But it’s still interesting to hike through smaller forests, and it can take you time too depending on the size, but usually it takes no more than 30 minutes or 1 hour … Continue reading Forestry In Northern Germany
