Beautiful Plant In The Forest


I saw the plant above in a small forest during my hike through the Schellbruch. I am not sure what kind of wild plant it is, I just thought it is a very beautiful plant. Apart from the plant, I do also like the depth of field and bokeh in the photo, I really like the result. Although it’s not working in every situation with my Nikon 18-105mm kit lens, I am happy that I learned how to get this kind of effect in some situations. If there is enough distance between the main subject and the stuff in the … Continue reading Beautiful Plant In The Forest

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

I walked near the Trave River today to see if I find anything interesting, to see if I can take more photos. I took quite a lot of photos but I am not happy with all of them. Talking about flowers now, I noticed that my kit lens really doesn’t do a great job for flower close-up shots, it’s simply not a macro lens. If I zoom in too much, it’ll be very hard and often even impossible to get the flower in focus. But you can get some neat results if you are not too close, it’s just not … Continue reading Beautiful Nature
