I really love Landscape Photography. It is awesome to go out to Explore and get some beautiful Fotos of Nature. A lot of bonafide Landscape Photographers swear on using Tripods and several Filters. I do not do any of that. And while I own a Tripod, because I used to really dig Long Exposures, I… Continue reading Still disliking Tripods.
I had not planned to go out on a Hike today. But when my Mom called and asked me to walk around the Oderteich together, I did not hesitate to say yes. I really like the Area around the Oderteich, and Hiking is always a nice thing to do. Being out in Nature definitely is… Continue reading Back at the Oderteich. [HWN 217]
I really love Hiking in the Harz. Being surrounded by Nature and Exploring Places is the absolute best. But I have not been out Hiking in a while. My last real Hike was on German Father’s Day last May, when explored around the Achtermannshöhe near Oderbrück. But then it was to warm for Hiking and… Continue reading Two new HWN Stamps.

Today the Weather was great. It was warm enough to Explore, yet not to warm to keep me Home. And it was windy. But I do like that. So I decided to drive into Ührde and explore a little today after Work. Not to long ago, I used to Hike there from Osterode on pretty… Continue reading I am back.

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. And I really love it to Wander around amongst the Trees and capture beautiful Fotos of them. At the Prinzenteich. As a… Continue reading Photography in the Woods.
Large Spruce Forests are a typical sight here in the Harz. But a lot of them are dying due to the Buchdrucker Beetle, a form of Bark Beetle common in large Spruce Populations. A lack of Rain and the very hot Summers we had these past few years due to that Beast called Climate Change… Continue reading Spruces in the Harz.
The Harz has a long History. Some of that History is awesome, like how it came that there are so many Teiche in the Area. But not all History in the Harz is good. Being in Germany, the Third Reich and World War II also happened here in the Harz. There were Camps and forced… Continue reading Werk Tanne.
As you know, I really love it to Explore in the Harz. Today, I bridged the Time between my Exam and the Gym reopening after their Lunch Break and spent an hour or so in Hahnenklee. But this Time around, I did not visit the beautiful Norwegian-style Gustav Adolf Stabkirche. It is beautiful, but I… Continue reading A Teich in Hahnenklee.
