I’ve been living here for almost five months now, an sometimes I really feel I’ve entered a fairytale when I go for my morning walk!
This unbreakable light
“I let it be, this unbreakable light
So that I become one, uncomplicated and whole.”
Spring on the beech
Even in the beech forest, the first signs of spring are there.
The early bird…
… catches the best light on a foggy morning!
I generally prefer tele lenses to wide angle lenses. I just like the feeling of being able to bring what I see closer. Because tele lenses are often heavy, I have gotten used to bringing my 85mm lens with me when I go hiking. It has some tele-quality and is not too heavy. And when I see a landscape that I want to capture, I just take a few vertical shots and stitch them together in a panorama. Which is exactly how this landscape came to be!
A beautiful morning with a bit of mist above the fens. As a photographer, you do need to get up early! 30 minutes later, all of the mist was gone.
When other trees are already donning their spring greens, the beech tree is still holding on to last year’s leaves. I want to tell him – and, perhaps, myself as well – “Let go of the past. Open yourself for new opportunities.” I hope that soon the beech tree will embrace the fresh green colors of spring as well!

This week we are on holiday from our own home, discovering the beauty of nature around us. Here, I can just picture the fairies bathing!
