The Unholy Trinity.

When it comes to Lenses, a lot of Photographers speak of the Holy Trinity of Lenses. What that means is, that there are only three Lenses that you need to be able to do any kind of Photography. Usually, those Lenses are a 16-35mm, a 24-70mm and a 70-200mm. But those only really do the… Continue reading The Unholy Trinity.

The crazy Journeys.

I absolutely love it to Travel. Usually, I take the easiest/ cheapest route to get to places. But sometimes, I chose the slightly crazier route. Or something goes terribly wrong. And than a standard old Journey turns into a crazy one. One example of a Journey gone wrong would be when I returned Home from… Continue reading The crazy Journeys.

Fog, Mist & Haze.

Landscape Photography is so awesome. I usually prefer good Visibility for my Photography, but sometimes, it is quite Foggy here in the Harz. I used to not shoot when it was Foggy. But lately, I came to like that quite a bit. Fog just makes the Picture that little bit more mystical. And I really… Continue reading Fog, Mist & Haze.

I am a Mountain Man.

While I absolutely love to travel everywhere. But I would always prefer the Mountains to the Beach. I just absolutely love those beautiful, rugged Landscapes. While the Harz is technically a Mountainous Area, most of the Mountains here a covered with loads of Trees. A Mountain Road in the Harz. And while I absolutely love… Continue reading I am a Mountain Man.

I love Fachwerkhäuser.

Here in Osterode, Fachwerkhäuser, or Half-Timbered Houses, are quite a common sight, especially in the towns Centre. In fact, I currently live in a Fachwerkhaus. Fachwerkhäuser are actually quite a beautiful sight. Sometimes, their wooden frames are decorated quite intricate. Some are even slightly colourful. Fachwerkhäuser in the Waagestraße. I absolutely love Fachwerkhäuser. Every single… Continue reading I love Fachwerkhäuser.

Holding Stuff in in front of my Camera.

I really love Landscape Photography. For me, a truly stunning Landscape speaks for itself. But sometimes, I really love it to hold Stuff in front of my Camera just for fun. In Autumn, Leafs are great example of Stuff that does very well in front of a Camera. Especially if you love those beautiful Autumn… Continue reading Holding Stuff in in front of my Camera.

Back at the WeltWald.

A few weeks ago, I visited the WeltWald Harz in Bad Grund. I had a great time there back then. So I did not hesitate when my Mom asked me if I wanted to come with her and and my Stepfather and joined them for a proper hike through the WeltWald. The Weather was supposed… Continue reading Back at the WeltWald.

Exploring Home.

I was born and grew up, for the most part, in the 90ties. And as a 90ties kid in a small German town, Osterode, I spent most of my waking hours in and around the Forest. We did not own a PlayStation or anything like that, but that was okay. In fact, I would not… Continue reading Exploring Home.

The Pfauenteiche.

The Pfauenteiche are three of the many Teiche around Clausthal. But they are much more than just that. Before and during World War 2, a TNT Factory was operating on one side of the Teiche, and the Area is still dangerously polluted and thus under permanent lock-down. The ‘Werk Tanne’, that is the Name of… Continue reading The Pfauenteiche.

Hiking around a Quarry.

Quite a while ago, I asked my Instagram Followers to tell me their favourite places in the Harz so that I could go and Explore a few of them. Today, I made my way to Wolfshagen im Harz to go and hike around the abandoned Diabase Quarry there. I started my journey to Wolfshagen at… Continue reading Hiking around a Quarry.
