The other Side of the Dam

Some Places have an Aura about them that always tends o draw us back there, no Matter how many Times we have already been. For me, the Oderteich in the middle of the Harz is such a Place. I have walked around it, and I have visited both Sides of the Dam. My Plan for… Continue reading The other Side of the Dam

Gräben & Teiche

It is no secret that I am absolutely obsessed with Finding Teiche here in the Oberharz. They are beautiful and they also carry a lot of History within them. I really love it to learn more and more about the Oberharzer Wasserregal. Along the Way, I then also stumbled across more and more of the… Continue reading Gräben & Teiche

Another Graben, another Klippe

I have always liked it to walk alongside all the Gräben here in the Harz. There a many of them, and pretty much every single one has a Path right next it. Once, those Paths were all built for Maintenance, but I digress. After having explored along the Dammgraben a lot these past few Days,… Continue reading Another Graben, another Klippe

The Smell of the Woods

These past few Days, it has been getting really Warm here in the Harz. I actually like that quite a bit. While that obviously means that I have got sweatier Hikes ahead of me, it also means that the Forest smells again. The Warmth tends to draw out all those essential Oils from the Trees,… Continue reading The Smell of the Woods

Back at the Dammgraben

Last Saturday, I visited the Eisenquelle at the Dammgraben and was a little underwhelmed by it. The Graben itself was beautiful, but the Quelle was very tiny and disappointing. Today then I decided to visit the Dammgraben again. That Thing is just about 15 kilometres long after all, so there are bound to be many… Continue reading Back at the Dammgraben

Automatic Photography

I love Photography a lot, and over the Time, I think I actually learned one Thing or another. I still rarely ever touch Manual Mode. Having to set up everything myself when it comes to how I Expose my Fotos is just a that I am not very good at. Off Course I also do… Continue reading Automatic Photography

To the Eisenquelle

Originally, I had only planned to walk along the Dammgraben near Altenau a little today. While that did actually happen, I also found yet another Place that I had never heard of before: The Eisenquelle. But before that, I just walked along the Dammgraben and waited for a Motorcycle to show up on the Road.… Continue reading To the Eisenquelle

Doing Things Properly

Sometimes, I really enjoy it to just watch some Landscape Photography Themed YouTube Channels. I normally just enjoy all those pretty Places that I can not get to right now, and even those I never heard of before. Most of those Channels have a few Things in Common: They all use Tripods an Filters. Usually,… Continue reading Doing Things Properly

Using Vintage Glass

A few Years ago, I inherited my Grandpas old Pentax ME with some Lenses around a few Corners. I also had an Adapter to put those on my modern day Camera since I got that Device. The only Thing I never really did was to actually use some Vintage PK Glass on my Canon M5,… Continue reading Using Vintage Glass

Finding new Places

For pretty much all of my Life, the Harz was pretty much right in my Backyard. I just found out something that I have also known all the Time though: It really does not mean much to live here when it comes to Exploring. I still find new Places, some I never even heard of,… Continue reading Finding new Places
