I kinda like Rain.

Most People like good Weather. I also like good Weather. But for Fotos, I actually prefer real Weather. With Clouds and Fog and Rain. Nothing is more boring than a plain blue Sky. And today, it was really rainy in the Harz. And I absolutely loved it. Heavy Rain really can look awesome in Fotos.… Continue reading I kinda like Rain.

Turns out that this time around it is time for Nature. And I absolutely love Nature! Yesterday at the Sösetalsperre. The Foods we eat, the Air we… Continue reading #fornature

Filming with my iPhone.

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.

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.

Mein Stück Harz.

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.

I have been at the Entensumpf a few Times so far. And today, I visited the Teich again. It is definitely one of my favourite of the countless Teiche in the Oberharz. Today, I visited the Teich with the Intention of shooting some Videos since I had just found my old Røde Mic again. And… Continue reading I love the Entensumpf.

Colourful Streets.

Usually, Street Photography looks best in Black and White. But sometimes, Colourful Street Fotos also look quite nice. And since I came across some Motives today, again without having planned to do any Street Photography. In fact, I was just in Town to drop off some Postcards at the Post Office. A red coat in… Continue reading Colourful Streets.

The longest Hike [HWN 137, 138 & 140]

I love Hiking in the Harz. Nature is beautiful here, and I can collect Wandernadel Stamps, which is awesome. Today, I went for a real long Hike. It all started in Buntenbock, where we had to find a parking space first of all. But we managed. From there, our Path took us past the Sumpfteich… Continue reading The longest Hike [HWN 137, 138 & 140]

Fotos with ‘F’.

Lately, I have started to write the word Foto with an ‘F’ in the beginning. Most English Speakers know that you usually write the word beginning with ‘Ph’, as in Photos. But I am from Germany. And in the German Language, we write Photos with an F. Osterodes Tourist Information. Regular Readers of this Blog… Continue reading Fotos with ‘F’.

Returning to the Kuckholzklippe [HWN 139]

Back in 2018, I hiked to the Kuckholzklippe from Buntenbock. It was actually my first ever Stamp in my Wanderpass. And even though every Stamp only counts once, I today decided to go there again. A lot has changed at the Kuckholzklippe, a lot of Trees that once blocked my View from the Viewing Tower… Continue reading Returning to the Kuckholzklippe [HWN 139]
