Cutting a Hike short.

A while ago, I started to collect Wandernadel Stempel. But I have not gotten any in a while, mostly because I have most of the Stempelstellen nearby in my Wanderpass. This Winter, I have started to collect something new though, to have an incentive to learn more about the Harz: Oberharzer Teiche. And I have… Continue reading Cutting a Hike short.

The invisible Teich.

I have been at the Hasenbacher Teich quite a few Times so far. I actually like it quite a bit there. And since I wanted to go somewhere today after Work, I just drove there. As soon as I hit the Weather-Line between Osterode and Clausthal, the Fog began to roll in. Usually, I like… Continue reading The invisible Teich.

Three Teiche in one Go.

I find the Oberharzer Wasserregal extremely fascinating. And Teiche are a huge Part of that sprawling Water Management System. Last Sunday, I was able to Hike around Zellerfeld and the Wasserläufer Teich with my Family. Since there are two more Teiche in that same Area though, I decided to return for a short After-Work-Walk today.… Continue reading Three Teiche in one Go.

The Oberharzer Wasserregal.

Lately, I absolutely enjoy it to Discover Teiche around Clausthal in the Oberharz. There are a lot of them, and most are actually very beautiful. Especially with all the Snow. But most, if not all of those Teiche are actually Manmade. And they were all built for a Reason. The Ziegenberger Teich. | ca. 1645… Continue reading The Oberharzer Wasserregal.

Beni the Stormtrooper.

A while ago, I found an old Stormtrooper Keychain in my old Legos. Ever since then, that Thing lives in or on my Backpack. Sometimes, it is also a lot of fun to take some Fotos with the Stormtrooper. And because everyone/ everything needs a Name, I started to call the Figure Beni the Stormtrooper,… Continue reading Beni the Stormtrooper.

Snow, a beautiful Danger.

I really love the Snowy Landscapes here in the Harz, and in Fact all around the World. Snow is beautiful, and sometimes there is precious little of it. But Snow, pretty much like anything else, also has other Sides to it. Those range from a nuisance to plain out Dangerous. A beautiful Landscape. Snow definitely… Continue reading Snow, a beautiful Danger.

Leading Paths.

Composition is an important Part of of Photography. And there are so many Tools that can be used to achieve a beautiful Foto. Leading Lines are one such Tool. They are used to guide your Eyes through the Scene captured. In the Woods, Paths are the perfect leading Lines. They usually stand out, and you… Continue reading Leading Paths.

The Prinzenteich & Me.

There was a Time when I did not like the Prinzenteich. It was overrun and overrated. But back in 2019, something changed. I returned to the Prinzenteich and I liked it. Since then, I have returned many Times. Something always draws me back to the Prinzenteich. At the Prinzenteich. Today, the Area was completely covered… Continue reading The Prinzenteich & Me.

Winter Photography.

I absolutely love Winter, and Snow is a huge Part of the Season. And is the Cold, which I also find enjoyable at Times. I also really enjoy Winter Photography. It is a lot of Fun to Capture all the White and make it look good. A Teich near Festenburg. Snowy Landscapes just have something… Continue reading Winter Photography.

Yet another Teich.

There are many, some might say countless, Teiche in the Harz. That is especially true around Clausthal and Buntenbock, and so it should be no surprise that I visited yet another Teich I had never been to before today. After work, I stopped a the Entensumpf near Clausthal. But instead of going there, I crossed… Continue reading Yet another Teich.
