Hiking around Schulenberg [HWN 124]

After counting all the Wandernadel Stamps I already have in my Wanderpass, I came up with a count of 23. And that was just one Stamp shy of me being eligible to get a golden Wandernadel. Naturally, I had to change that. And after searching for a nice little Stamp to get, I decided to… Continue reading Hiking around Schulenberg [HWN 124]

Taking Pictures just out of Clausthal.

Today, the Weather was supposed to be awful. The forecast was for Clouds and Rain all day long. But after work, it was actually not that bad. So I drove to Clausthal to do a little Project I have been wanting to do for quite a while. I had planned to go to the Parking… Continue reading Taking Pictures just out of Clausthal.

I still Print.

Photography is awesome. And usually, I review my edited Fotos on a screen, either on my laptop or on the iPad, and that is usually fine. Then I upload my favourites here and/ or on Instagram. But sometimes, it is just not enough. And when that happens, I break out my trusty old Photo Printer… Continue reading I still Print.

The longest Hike [HWN 137, 138 & 140]

I love Hiking in the Harz. Nature is beautiful here, and I can collect Wandernadel Stamps, which is awesome. Today, I went for a real long Hike. It all started in Buntenbock, where we had to find a parking space first of all. But we managed. From there, our Path took us past the Sumpfteich… Continue reading The longest Hike [HWN 137, 138 & 140]

The Dammgraben Video.

Yesterday, I spent some time at the Dammgraben near Altenau. There, I not only shot some Fotos and enjoyed the Sun, I also filmed a few short Videoclips. During the Foto shooting part, I had initially gotten my Settings completely wrong, accidentally still having my Camera set to a Shutter Speed of 1/50 from the… Continue reading The Dammgraben Video.

The Dammgraben.

The Harz is always beautiful. And today, I enjoyed a short walk at the Dammgraben just out of Altenau. And I had a great time. It was nice and warm outside, and I enjoyed the sun a lot. And although it was also a little windy, it was awesome. At the Dammgraben. The Dammgraben is… Continue reading The Dammgraben.

At the Oderteich.

Yesterday after Work, I really needed some fresh Air. And after some deliberation, I decided to go to the Oderteich in the Harz. I had a great, albeit short time there. But this Story is not about that. It is about how I almost lost every single Picture I took at the Teich. And it… Continue reading At the Oderteich.

Fotos with ‘F’.

Lately, I have started to write the word Foto with an ‘F’ in the beginning. Most English Speakers know that you usually write the word beginning with ‘Ph’, as in Photos. But I am from Germany. And in the German Language, we write Photos with an F. Osterodes Tourist Information. Regular Readers of this Blog… Continue reading Fotos with ‘F’.

Black & White.

Usually, I shoot and edit my Fotos in Colour. And usually, that is all I need. But sometimes, Black & White Fotos just look way better. Sometimes, I really love it to leave all those beautiful Colours aside and go fully Monochrome. There are Fotos that really do not work in Black & White. But… Continue reading Black & White.

That Time my Camera took a dive.

Last Year I spent a whole week rail tripping the Netherlands. It was awesome. I also spend a day in Rotterdam, and I really liked it there. But I also had one really heart breaking Moment. My Camera somehow detached from the Lens I was using, and that was connected to my Camera Strap, and… Continue reading That Time my Camera took a dive.
