Another Teich near Festenburg

My Name is Robin, and I really love Teiche. That is how I would announce myself if it would ever try to work for the Harz. I do not do that, but the Thing about Teiche is for certain. And so, since I had some free Time available today, I drove up to Festenburg to… Continue reading Another Teich near Festenburg

A new Dam

The Sösetalsperre here in Osterode was the first modern Talsperre in the Harz, being finished all the Way back in 1931. It, like most Talsperren here in the Harz, also has a Vorsperre to absorb uniquely high Waters, and a Stilling Basin to regulate outflow from from the Talsperre. The Söse below the Talsperre. After… Continue reading A new Dam

Almost getting that Stempel

A while ago, I went to the Sösetalsperre to get a Sonderstempel there. Back then, I was thwarted by some Forestry Operations. So I decided to try again this Afternoon. There Weather was nicely Mediocre. It was a little Windy, there was some minor Snowfall, and it was a little Cold. But I kinda liked… Continue reading Almost getting that Stempel

This Winter

I usually like the Wintertime. The Harz is always really beautiful when all the Trees are powdered over and the Teiche are frozen. The last few Years, we did not have much of that though. And this Winter started out bad as well. The first real Snow we had here came around a few Days… Continue reading This Winter

In the Woods

Yesterday, I was visited the beautiful Fortuner Teich just of the L38 between Clausthal and Altenau. The Teich alone was great, but I also got to walk amongst the Trees. And the Thing is: I absolutely love it to be surrounded by Nature, especially by Trees. Being able to just be there and enjoy all… Continue reading In the Woods

A new Teich

Pretty much since January, I am completely obsessed with finding Teiche in the Oberharz. There are just so many of them, and every single one is beautiful and has its very own History. As a part of the Oberharzer Wasserregal, most of the Teiche that are still here today date between the 16th and 18th… Continue reading A new Teich

Limiting Choices

Yesterday, I visited the Oderteich for the first Time in quite a While. I did something else differently as well though: After just using one Prime Lens for the last few Months, I switched back to my Zooms. That Prime Lens is really awesome, and I will definitely continue using it. Just not exclusively. After… Continue reading Limiting Choices

Visiting the Oderteich

The Oderteich definitely is one of my absolute favourite Places in the Harz. Due to Overcrowding, I do not visit it that often though. Also, there are many other beautiful Places here that I also really like. But after not visiting in a while, I just had to visit the Oderteich today. There was no… Continue reading Visiting the Oderteich

Not getting a Stempel

Ever since I got that Sonderstempel for the Harzer Wandernadel here in Osterode yesterday, my Interest in collecting those flared up once again. And so, after finding out the Location of yet another Sonderstempel at the Sösetalsperre, I was on my Way to grab that after work today. Things did not turn out as planned.… Continue reading Not getting a Stempel

A Teich in Zellerfeld

The Oberharzer Wasserregal is truly Fascinating. I absolute love to Explore around it. There is just so much to see. The most prominent Feature of the Oberharzer Wasserregal are the Teiche though. They are also the easiest to spot. That being said, I have never been to the Carler Teich in Zellerfeld before, nor did… Continue reading A Teich in Zellerfeld
