Exploring the Oberharzer Wasserregal

Lately, I am quite obsessed with finding Teiche in the Oberharz. That is always a lot of Fun, and I can usually learn something about the Harz in the process as well. Those Teiche are a Part of the Oberharzer Wasserregal, but there is so much more to Discover. Gräben connect most Teiche, and some… Continue reading Exploring the Oberharzer Wasserregal

Another Teich near Festenburg

My Name is Robin, and I really love Teiche. That is how I would announce myself if it would ever try to work for the Harz. I do not do that, but the Thing about Teiche is for certain. And so, since I had some free Time available today, I drove up to Festenburg to… Continue reading Another Teich near Festenburg

A new Dam

The Sösetalsperre here in Osterode was the first modern Talsperre in the Harz, being finished all the Way back in 1931. It, like most Talsperren here in the Harz, also has a Vorsperre to absorb uniquely high Waters, and a Stilling Basin to regulate outflow from from the Talsperre. The Söse below the Talsperre. After… Continue reading A new Dam

Almost getting that Stempel

A while ago, I went to the Sösetalsperre to get a Sonderstempel there. Back then, I was thwarted by some Forestry Operations. So I decided to try again this Afternoon. There Weather was nicely Mediocre. It was a little Windy, there was some minor Snowfall, and it was a little Cold. But I kinda liked… Continue reading Almost getting that Stempel

The Colour Red

Sometimes in my Landscape Photography, I just can not go without that certain Splash of Colour. It is always nice to have an extra Point of Reference in my Fotos. They can also provide a Sense of Scale or make a Scene much more relatable. Usually, I do not get what Colour I am going… Continue reading The Colour Red

In the Woods

Yesterday, I was visited the beautiful Fortuner Teich just of the L38 between Clausthal and Altenau. The Teich alone was great, but I also got to walk amongst the Trees. And the Thing is: I absolutely love it to be surrounded by Nature, especially by Trees. Being able to just be there and enjoy all… Continue reading In the Woods

Not getting a Stempel

Ever since I got that Sonderstempel for the Harzer Wandernadel here in Osterode yesterday, my Interest in collecting those flared up once again. And so, after finding out the Location of yet another Sonderstempel at the Sösetalsperre, I was on my Way to grab that after work today. Things did not turn out as planned.… Continue reading Not getting a Stempel

The Hexenstieg

Starting in Osterode, the Harzer Hexenstieg is just under 100 kilometres long in its entirety. While it is a ‘short’ Trail in the grand Scheme of Things, it is the longest official Path in the Harz. One Time, I actually walked the first Stage of the Hexenstieg in Reverse from Buntenbock to Osterode with my… Continue reading The Hexenstieg

Scale and Things

Nature is Big. Trees can be really Tall. It can be hard to see that in Fotos sometimes though. Imagining the Size of something is not easy without having some Sense of Scale. The easiest Way to get that Sense into Fotos is to include something most would know the approximate Size of. Like Cars,… Continue reading Scale and Things

Nature & I

For pretty much all of my Life, I had a deep running Obsession with Nature. I lived right at the Forest for a good Amount of my Childhood, and there where few Days that were not spent Adventuring Outdoors, at least until I got into Highschool. And even though that Love had slightly faded through… Continue reading Nature & I
