There are many Forests here in the Harz, and a lot of them are Spruce Monocultures or other Needled Trees. And just like in every other heavily wooded Area, there is always the Risk of Forest Fires. And while the Fires here are lower in Number and smaller in Size than those, for example, in… Continue reading Avoid Forest Fires.
Photography is kind of my thing. I really love it to be Creative and Explore new Things at the same Time while being out in Nature. Forests are a huge Part of Nature.

This Morning, I had a Chemistry Exam. And I am really not that good with Chemistry. But I think I managed. After that Exam, I had to unwind for a little while, so I headed towards Festenburg, just out of Zellerfeld. I have been to Festenburg before, but back then I was Hiking with my… Continue reading Festenburg.
Last Sunday, I had a great Time exploring around Drei-Annen-Hohne and then taking the Brockenbahn to Schierke and back for only 5€. It was great. I took a load of Fotos, as I usually do when I go somewhere. But I did not only capture some Stills. I also shot a considerable amount of Video.… Continue reading The Brockenbahn Video.
