A walk around the Grubensee in Brandenburg

January 6th, 2014

You don’t often find places where there are absolutely no people in Germany.

We had the luck to visit the “Grubensee” (Link to OSM) on a very nice day in January when nobody else did.

Here are some impressions for you.

Landing stages that are slowly decomposing seem to be one of the main features of the lake.

Foggy day at Lake Constance

November 30th, 2012

Friedrichshafen on Lake Constance was covered in thick fog all day long.

But that doesn’t stop a photographer from exploring the possibilities.

Coldness has arrived

February 6th, 2012

Winter had been very warm (5-15°C) this year until some days ago. Now daytime temperatures are rarely exceeding -10°C and at night the thermometer hits -20°C or less. I never saw so much ice on the Saale.
