Clausthal from above.

I really like Clausthal. Not just because I go to University there, but because it is a beautiful place. During yesterday’s Montgolfiade, I had the chance to take a trip up in a Balloon Cage on a Crane. And I took it. I knew that I wanted to take that Crane ride before I even… Continue reading Clausthal from above.

The Montgolfiade.

Today, and also yesterday, the first ever Montgolfiade* was held in Clausthal. That is a Hot Air Balloon Festival. And it was a busy one. When the brothers Montgolfiere invented the Hot Air Ballon a few hundred years ago, they would have never thought that multiple festivals would be named in their honour. But that… Continue reading The Montgolfiade.

The Prinzenteich.

Today, I had a lot on my agenda. But I also had plenty of time to explore place one on my list: the Prinzenteich. I chose the Prinzenteich as number one not only because it is the closest to my home, but also because it is on my way to University. I just have to… Continue reading The Prinzenteich.

A day of Classic Cars.

Classic Cars are beautiful. And today we had a Classic Car Convention here in Osterode. Up until today, I had totally forgotten that OTTO was in town again. Originally, I had planned to explore some place in the Harz, but that will have to wait until next weekend. Classic Cars in Osterode. Classic Cars are… Continue reading A day of Classic Cars.

Flugtag in Hattorf.

Today, I have been to Hattorf because the local Aviation Club hosts its annual Flugtag (Aviation Day.) this weekend. And I absolutely love General Aviation. The weather today was way better than it was supposed to be. It only rained for a bit, and then stopped. So I made my way over to Hattorf to… Continue reading Flugtag in Hattorf.

Feierabend is awesome!

Here in Osterode, from May to September, we celebrate Feierabend every first Thursday of the Month. We have some Street Food, fresh Beer and Live Music. It is always quite nice there. It is actually quite crowded, thanks to the good Food and awesome Beer. Some delicious Craft Beer. Usually, I do not have much… Continue reading Feierabend is awesome!

Visiting the WeltWald.

Today, after going grocery shopping with my grandma, I decided to go to the WeltWald Harz in Bad Grundto take some Pictures and explore for a bit. I even got a Stamp towards my Harzer Wandernadel. I arrived at the WeltWald, an Arboretum in Bad Grund, quite late, around 4pm. Originally I only wanted to… Continue reading Visiting the WeltWald.

Exploring Hahnenklee.

Today, I was out and about exploring Hahnenklee with some friends who have never been there. We started with the Stabkirche and ended up on Mount Bocksberg using the cable car. When we first arrived at the Gustav Adolf Stabkirche in Hahnenklee this afternoon, it was way to crowded to get any interesting shots. We… Continue reading Exploring Hahnenklee.

Why I love to Travel.

Travelling, wether domestically or abroad, is always awesome. And my trip to Czechia last week reminded be to always be open to the unknown. It reminded me that you do not need a fancy Airbnb or some Hostel to explore. All you need is time, curiosity and some money. Captured last week in Czechia. I… Continue reading Why I love to Travel.

Why I do not use Manual Focus.

A lot of really good Landscape Photogrpahers, like Thomas Heaton for example, swear on using Manual Focus for Accuracy and Sharpness. I only use Manual Focus when I really have to, what is not usually the case. And that is not because I have no clue when it comes to focussing manually, I am actually… Continue reading Why I do not use Manual Focus.
