Last Week, I explored around Werk Tanne in Clausthal as Part of my new #HistoryWorthTelling Series. Today, I ‘explored’ around yet another industrial remnant in the Harz, Dachs IV near Osterode. Dachs IV was an attempt to move Fuel Production underground during the latter Days of World War II, after Germany had become vulnerable to… Continue reading Dachs IV
Sometimes, I am a real Night Owl. I love it to capture Fotos and shoot Videos at Night. I have no Idea why that is so, but it is. I have made several Mistakes in the Past when it comes to creating Media in the Dark before. Such as using the wrong Shutter Speed or… Continue reading Filming in the Dark.
Yesterday, I took a few Fotos with my new iPhone 11 to compare them to my Camera in a fun little competition. Today, I decided to go out and shoot a short Video with it. 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.
Smartphone Cameras nowadays are the best they have ever been. And since I just got a new one, I decided to pitch it against my trusty Canon M5 in a fun little shootout. And I can definitely say that Image Quality is definitely getting there. Dynamic Range really is not even close, but the Phone… Continue reading Phone vs Camera.
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.
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.
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]
I really like Sunsets. They look awesome, and I love to take Pictures of them. Even though they do look way better in real life. There are just some things in life that Cameras just are not that good at. Today, the Sky was slightly on Fire. But sometimes, Sunsets can be really extreme. That… Continue reading When the Sky is on FIRE.
Just east of Osterode, sitting in a Harz Valley, sits the Sösetalsperre. I never really thought much of it, as it was always there. Today, after taking a Chemistry Exam, I decided to find out a little more about the local Talsperre. The Dam of the Sösetalsperre is largely made of Earth and Gravel. It… Continue reading The oldest Talsperre in the Harz
Today, my Brain required a break from Learning for University. So I headed out despite the Weather. It was grey all day long. A while ago, I was informed that there is a Wandernadel Sonderstempel at the Heimatmuseum in Osterode. I had been to that Museum before, and one visit is definitely enough, but that… Continue reading A Sonderstempel in Osterode.
