My favourite places in Germany.

I live in Germany. And while I love travelling abroad, and going to do so next week, there are also many awesome and beautiful places here. And for me, it is even kinda affordable to get around in Germany. (It is for pretty much everyone.) But everyone, including me, has their favourites. These are mine.… Continue reading My favourite places in Germany.

How to shoot Panoramas.

Shooting panoramas, whether horizontally or vertically, is a great way to show the immense beauty of the world around us or at least to give an overview of a scene. While I lately prefer to shoot more intricate details of landscapes, panoramic shot are not to be underestimated. The easiest way to shoot a panorama… Continue reading How to shoot Panoramas.

GVRacer 8 Rollout.

I'm a Formula Student guy. My team is called Green Voltage Racing e.V. and we're based in Clausthal. Today was the rollout of our GVRacer 8. I'm not going to say much about what our car can or can't do, I do not know a lot about those things, I'm a media team guy. All… Continue reading GVRacer 8 Rollout.

Yet another Teich.

As I've said before, there are many lakes around Clausthal. Today, I made my way to the Hasenbacher Teich to have my dinner and take some pictures. Situated between Clausthal and Buntenbock, the Hasenbacher Teich is, during the summer time, the place to go swim if you are from Osterode and you want to swim… Continue reading Yet another Teich.

At the Sösetalsperre.

After having exams this morning, and after a quick stint at my Formula Student Team as well as a quick session at the gim, I had to soak in some sun at the Sösetalsperre. It was just to windy to do that in Clausthal. So I figured to do some more landscape photography with my… Continue reading At the Sösetalsperre.

Shooting landscapes with a telephoto lens.

Usually, I use wide angle lenses for my landscape photography. To challenge my creativity, I used my telephoto lens exclusively today. And I actually enjoyed it. I own 4 lenses, 2 of them I usually use for landscape photography, those would be my 18-55mm kit lens and my 22mm pancake lens. Today though, the only… Continue reading Shooting landscapes with a telephoto lens.

Golden Hour.

I love landscape photography. It's my passion. Usually, I take most of my pictures in the afternoon, because the light is nicer then. But the best, most beautiful light comes during Golden Hour. I love Golden Hour. For any of you not knowing what I'm talking about: Golden Hour is the the last hour before… Continue reading Golden Hour.

Police Open House.

Yesterday, the police hosted an open house in Osterode. And because I was interested in it, and also because I had nothing else todo, I went. I initially thought that I wouldn't have long when I arrived at the local station, because the internet told me that the event would end at 3pm. It ended… Continue reading Police Open House.

Bark beetles.

Here in the Harz, especially in the National Park, we have quite some bark beetle troubles. There are just so many dead trees, because of the spruce monoculture left behind by the once sprawling mining industry in the area. Back in the day, the miners needed loads of wood for their mining operations. They escpecially… Continue reading Bark beetles.

Scale in landscapes.

I love landscape photography. Our planet is just so beautiful. But sometimes, I like to iclude things into my landscape shots for scale or subject. A good landscape doesn't need anything else but it's natural beauty. But sometimes, that isn't enough. Soemtimes, there just isn't enough bezass in the shot. In such cases, I use… Continue reading Scale in landscapes.
