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

Hike Through The Fog


I like the paths you can find in Reinfeld, but as mentioned, walking there is even more interesting when it’s misty, because it’s mysterious. Some people might dislike the wet air and would stay at home when it’s misty, but I do really love to go out, and then you can enjoy it all alone. I did maybe see three people there in one hour, one jogger, and two womans with their dogs, some people just like it, others not. We do sometimes have fog in the morning, but it doesn’t happen too often that there is fog all day … Continue reading Hike Through The Fog

Misty Path


Misty weather makes things look interesting and mysterious, I really like misty weather. We had it misty today, and that all day long. I grabbed my camera in the afternoon one hour before it gets dark, because I thought I could take some mysterious photos along one of the paths near a big pond. I shot several photos, but I really like the one you can see in this post. When my aunt saw the photo, she said “I wouldn’t have walked there in the mist, because it looks creepy”, and I laughed and replied “Well, I am glad you … Continue reading Misty 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

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. I know happy zones outside as well, I do for example enjoy to hike, and … Continue reading Happy Places

Wandering In October


It’s October but it was still sunny this week, today the weather was fine too and I used the Sunday to get out of the apartment. Today I didn’t have a goal, I just marched through the city and through some parks outside of the city. I shot some usual subjects like bird photos near the river, some architecture photos in the city and so on. On my way, I found a botanic garden that I didn’t know, it was actually hidden near a path at the riverside, of course I had to take a look. The garden is public … Continue reading Wandering In October
