Good Fotos in bad Weather.

Today, the Weather was quite awful. It was kind of cold, and it rained all the time. And even though that Rain was much needed , it also limited my photographic Options. My Camera is not Weather Proof in any way, and I also do not want to use my Phone for just about anything… Continue reading Good Fotos in bad Weather.

More Video.

Today, I went to the Gym for the second time since it reopened. It was so awesome! I had missed it a lot. However, being able to go back to the Gym will not mean that I am going to be outdoors less. It really does not. So after today’s Session at the Gym, I… Continue reading More Video.

Filming with my iPhone.

Yesterday, I took a few Fotos with my new iPhone 11 to compare them to my Camera in a fun little competition. Today, I decided to go out and shoot a short Video with it. To shoot the Video, I used two Apps, FilMic Pro and FilMic DoubleTake. I filmed in Log and also with… Continue reading Filming with my iPhone.

Phone vs Camera.

Smartphone Cameras nowadays are the best they have ever been. And since I just got a new one, I decided to pitch it against my trusty Canon M5 in a fun little shootout. And I can definitely say that Image Quality is definitely getting there. Dynamic Range really is not even close, but the Phone… Continue reading Phone vs Camera.

Back in Düna.

Today, I was in Düna just to the south of Osterode to try and find some beautiful red Poppies to shoot. Spoiler Alert: I did not get lucky. The Field that was a full of Wheat last Year was just a big old yard of Grass today, and there were absolutely no Poppies to be… Continue reading Back in Düna.

I really love the Harz. But due to the immense Heat and the lack of Rain in the past few Years, a lot of the local Fir Trees were unable to defend themselves against the common Bark Beetle. And because of that, there are a lot of dead Trees in the Harz. And while the… Continue reading Mein Stück Harz.

I love the Entensumpf.

HWN: Silver to Gold.

Recently, I advanced from the Silver Wandernadel to the Golden one. It took me quite a bit longer than getting from Bronze to Silver, but in the end I managed. This is my Journey. I got my first Stamp towards the Golden Wandernadel during a University Field Trip. I was an awesome Experience discovering the… Continue reading HWN: Silver to Gold.

Wandernadel Level 3

Last week, I got my 24th Wandernadel Stamp. Coincidentally that is also the number of Stamps required to get the Golden Wandernadel. Back then, the Tourist Information had already closed though, and I was unable to purchase the corresponding Pin. Today, that was different. I managed to get there before 3pm and got what I… Continue reading Wandernadel Level 3

Pocket Knives.

Almost a week ago I ordered myself a new Pocket Knife. I have not had one since I lost my Victorinox in some Canadian Lake back in 2014. My new Knife arrived yesterday. And I really like it. It is ergonomic, easy to use and almost too sharp. The frame lock might be a little… Continue reading Pocket Knives.
