Now it’s undeniable—the dark winter times are coming. Since I hike and photograph, I experienced a change in mindset when looking at the weather: Through the lens every kind of weather is beautiful and has it’s charming parts. Very bright sunshine can eliminate all shadows and makes landscapes flat and boring, while raindrops on the lens can serve as an unpredictable but beautiful filter. Everything depends on the photographers point of view.
The body has to be prepared as well. As my Grandma said: There is no bad weather, just bad clothes.
Trough the forest to Biesow
In Biesow, a very small parish in the middle of the forest, we witnessed a hunting party. Peter Kruger, the owner of the Krugers Forsthaus (forester’s lodge), was very kind to show us around in his wonderful and sensibly renovated home, which serves as a location for trainings, hunting parties and similar purposes today. In summer you can even sleep outside on an attic under the starry sky. It is so beautiful, I will definitively keep this in mind for the next occasion.
