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.

Hiking to the Achtermannshöhe.

Today was a Holiday here in Germany. And I went Hiking to the Achtermannshöhe in the Harz. The Parking Lot was packed with Cars, but luckily, the Trail was quite empty. I started my Journey in Oderbrück. That is just a little south of Torfhaus. From there, the Path took me through the Forest right… Continue reading Hiking to the Achtermannshöhe.

Just take Fotos.

Sometimes it is a lot of fun to just go outside and take Fotos of random things. I really like to do that every now and then. Taking Fotos of your everyday surroundings is also a good way to hone your Skills as a Photographer. That way, you learn to see the world with different… Continue reading Just take Fotos.

Changing how I edit.

I usually edit my Fotos in Lightroom, and I will continue continue doing that. But after a long time with no real Changes to my Style I recently grew more and more dissatisfied with my Fotos. That is why I played around for quite a while today editing one Foto over and over, even going… Continue reading Changing how I edit.

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.

Hiking around Schulenberg [HWN 124]

After counting all the Wandernadel Stamps I already have in my Wanderpass, I came up with a count of 23. And that was just one Stamp shy of me being eligible to get a golden Wandernadel. Naturally, I had to change that. And after searching for a nice little Stamp to get, I decided to… Continue reading Hiking around Schulenberg [HWN 124]

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]

The Dammgraben Video.

Yesterday, I spent some time at the Dammgraben near Altenau. There, I not only shot some Fotos and enjoyed the Sun, I also filmed a few short Videoclips. During the Foto shooting part, I had initially gotten my Settings completely wrong, accidentally still having my Camera set to a Shutter Speed of 1/50 from the… Continue reading The Dammgraben Video.

2020: So far.

2020 is still quite young, but since everything is changing right now, I assembled a short list of my favourite Fotos of this Year so far. And it has definitely not been easy to decide. The Light was awesome on this one. Just at the End of January, I captured this Foto in Osterode just… Continue reading 2020: So far.

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]
