Fintlandsmoor… and a lot of wet snow

I left home 1 hour before sunrise. It was still raining and most of the snow turned into wet, heavy snow. I wasn’t sure if I could make an image out of this. But I decided to go on and drove 5 minutes to my planned location. My journey ended in front of a fallen tree. No access by car. I had to walk for 1 mile through the moor to the moor lakes. It is a challenge in dry conditions. But I know this area and it was a save walk. I was hoping to get at least one decent image.

At the moor lake the weather actually decided to get worse. I spent another hour and tried to get my image of the day. In the end I took 4 images, packed my stuff and left to get a decent breakfast and a nice, hot cup of tea. On my short way home I decided that everyday out in nature is a good day. Happy days.

Winter’s Moor

Winter has arrived. First snow in the Dänikhorster Moor. It is usually a very quiet place. The snow has further reduced the sounds of animals and birds. I only heard the barking of a fox in the distance. Hopefully the snow will stay until tomorrow morning. I am planning to visit the Fintlandsmoor and the moor lakes to capture some snowy wetlands early in the morning. Fingers crossed! Happy days. Reinhold

Dreaming… I saw me walking through the moor, the wetlands of the North… moving on into a world without fear, hate, politics, war, anger… I must be dreaming. Afraid to wake up. My dream will be continued tomorrow. See you there!

… this image of a brave little tree has been taken in the moor (Fintlandsmoor) only a few miles away from where I live. I must return to the moor in the next days, when the weather is changing from horrible to acceptable. As you know, I don’t mind cold, snow, storm… but I hate gray and wet weather conditions. From April 1 until the end of June I can’t go there. It is a nature resort with restricted access during this period. Lots of ground breeding birds. So I desperately wait for different weather. 4 weeks left. Fingers crossed. 🙂
