What camera I use.

What what do I use, you may ask, and why? My camera started malfunctioning after I dropped it in a lake in 2014. (It was a Sony DSC-HX20v) Even though it still worked (in fact it still does), I wanted to have something new, something better. But obviously, there are several models and manufacturers to… Continue reading What camera I use.

Some more telephoto shots.

Here are some shots fired with my new telephoto lens. It's a Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS STM. My camera is a Canon 100D/ REbel SL1'  

Got a new lens.

And since… Continue reading Clausthal: The city of lakes.

My fathers girlfriend asked me to take photos of her horse in the water.  (On the way to the location) (On location) We had quite some fun in the river. But the water was really cold.  Shooting with animals can always be a challenge, because they all… Continue reading Working with horses. 

Went hiking yesterday. 

I decided that, since I had nothing better to do, that it could be fun to go for a little hike. I did 7.89 km (4.9 miles) in one and a half hours.  And it was amazing. Even though it was quite warm (there even was an official heat warning issued for my hometown), but… Continue reading Went hiking yesterday.
