The weather is getting wetter, the leaves are changing their colours. It is Autumn again. And Autumn is my favourite Season. On the days it does not rain, that is. Trees just look so beautiful when their Leaves are more than just green. I love green Leaves, but sometimes, Colours are just awesome. And yes,… Continue reading I still love Autumn.
Most Lenses can change their Aperture, or their F-Stop. Most Lenses go to about f/22 or even higher. I do not usually use F-Stop over f/16. Here are my reasons. OFF course you should always keep your Camera, and especially its’ Sensor clean. But sometimes, small Dust Particles still get into the System. At smaller… Continue reading About small Apertures.
A while ago, I wrote about Primal Photography, or Photography using Prime Lenses. I own two of those, my 22mm f/2.0 and my old trustworthy 50mm f/1.8. Those are my absolute favourite Lenses. When I got my first DSLR in 2015, I quickly figured out that I wanted to own one special Prime Lens. Back… Continue reading I really love my Prime Lenses.
Since I have not done a #TSBTP, I thought I would do one today. This time is about Schloss Drachenburg on the Drachenfels in Königswinter near Cologne. Last year, in May 2018, I was on the Drachenfels with University en route to a Field-trip in Cologne. We stopped by Königswinter to view the restoration efforts… Continue reading The Castle near Cologne.
I love my LowePro ProTactic Photo Backpack, but sometimes it is a little bit big and cumbersome to carry around. Because of that, I got a new, secondary Backpack for my 25th Birthday last month. It was no easy choice to decide for which Backpack I would ask my Mom for as a gift, but… Continue reading My new Backpack.
A while ago I asked my Instagram followers to tell me their favourite place in the Harz. I got some recommendations. The Bremketal near Osterode was one of those places. So I went hiking with my Mom there today. The Bremketal is a beautiful valley, stretching near the Prinzenteich down to Osterode. It is a… Continue reading Hiking in the Bremketal.
Today I had an early morning exam at University. I think it went well. But in the afternoon, I had some time to spare. So I made my way to Walkenried to visit the local Klostermarkt. The Klostermarkt is held annually in the former Cistercian Abbey in Walkenried that was founded in 1127 and closed… Continue reading Klostermarkt in Walkenried.
I really like Clausthal. Not just because I go to University there, but because it is a beautiful place. During yesterday’s Montgolfiade, I had the chance to take a trip up in a Balloon Cage on a Crane. And I took it. I knew that I wanted to take that Crane ride before I even… Continue reading Clausthal from above.
Today, and also yesterday, the first ever Montgolfiade* was held in Clausthal. That is a Hot Air Balloon Festival. And it was a busy one. When the brothers Montgolfiere invented the Hot Air Ballon a few hundred years ago, they would have never thought that multiple festivals would be named in their honour. But that… Continue reading The Montgolfiade.
Today, I had a lot on my agenda. But I also had plenty of time to explore place one on my list: the Prinzenteich. I chose the Prinzenteich as number one not only because it is the closest to my home, but also because it is on my way to University. I just have to… Continue reading The Prinzenteich.
