I will be offline for a few days. Boomer (my dog) has to face an operation tomorrow morning. I hope everything will be fine. But I am pretty nervous. Stay safe and happy days to you. Reinhold
Found: a few miles from home. Highland cattle in the lowlands of North Germany.
Today I spent some time working on one of my images from my archive. I captured it last autumn. While I was working on it, that scene became one of my favorite images of 2019. It shows these lovely autumn birch trees and their vibrant color. I think I captured the peak of autumn in the North of Germany with this one and one which represents our local moor the best.
Happy days. Stay healthy and safe. Reinhold
From my archive: An evening walk in the moor. Happy days. Reinhold
Fortunately we have a contact ban only. So far. We can still leave our homes (supermarket, pharmacy, walking Boomer, walking alone or as a couple) but we have to avoid contact to other people. Usually pretty easy in our small, remote village. But sometimes difficult in our supermarket. But people still behave like responsible human beings (most of them). At least our local weather is playing on our side. Forecast looks pretty promising. I have positioned the grill on our terrace, checked the wine and meat stock, baked some fresh bread and will isolate ourselves as much as possible to our home and garden. Starting today (April 1) Boomer is not allowed to run free for a period of a few months. We are living in a nature resort and have to protect breeding birds.
I have ordered 2 macro rings for my Fuji. This will turn my kit zoom (18-55mm) into a type of macro lens. Reviews were promising. So I try to focus on macro photography for the next weeks and stay at home.
Hopefully we will get some plants and flowers in our garden to dig into macro photography.
Stay save my blogging friends where ever you are and try to enjoy life even under these weird conditions.
Happy days and smiles.
Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.

Would you be interested in me filming and commenting one of my walks round the lake with Boomer? Would not be perfect. I am not a film maker, vlogger. But may be it brings some fun, sun and distraction into our isolation. Let me know in the comments below. Happy days. Reinhold
After the storm.
Returned safely from Hamburg to the lake. 2 days to relax. The next storm front is expected on Sunday. Will be not as heavy as the last one but still another 2-3 days of horrible weather. I start to hate rain, wind and cold and wet clothes and shoes. Let’s hope for better weather. Happy days. Reinhold and Boomer.
Boberger Dunes. A nature resort in Hamburg. Stunning landscape, easy to access. Basically 5 min from our apartment near the city center of town. Happy days. Reinhold and Boomer.
Happy new year. I hope 2020 will be awesome for you and your family and friends. We had a windy and rainy start of the year. Bommer is already 9 month old. He has learned many new things. Tomorrow we will join a group at dog school. Pretty exited.
The images are captured with my mobile this morning.
Happy days. Reinhold and Boomer
Our lake yesterday morning. Another gorgeous sunrise. This is my last post before christmas. Me and boomer wish you all a happy and save christmas time. We will be back soon with new images of our daily walks.
Today was the first time after the arrival of Boomer that I used a camera of my regular photography gear, my Fuji X100F to capture some images during our morning walk. Definitely more fun (at least for me).
Happy days. Reinhold and Boomer.
There are also mornings like these. Boomer had an early start. It was still dark, raining and the wind was chasing clouds in the sky. But we managed to avoid most of the rain during our walk. As usual we are now sitting on our couch and Boomer is already in the land of dreams while I drink a hot cup of tea. A Sunday morning… Happy days. Reinhold and Boomer.
Another beautiful sunrise. It even started snowing. Just a little bit. Happy days to you all. Reinhold and Boomer.
