Local nature photography in Hamburg

Since three years I’m living in the city of Hamburg. Hamburg features many well-known tourist-attractions. Famous sights include the Elbphilharmonie, the Speicherstadt, the city hall, the port, and many many more. Hamburg has a lot of green areas and parks as well (like Planten un Blomen). Still, it is not exactly famous for its nature. However, in the outskirts of the city you can find small nature refuges, like forests and marshes. During the day those are frequented by many walkers, bikers and joggers – especially so during Corona lockdown. If you go there early enough you’ll be almost by yourself.

The images in this post were taken in one of those areas – the size of which is no more than one square kilometer – before and at sunrise. The nice thing about local photography is that you can return to a place easily. So there might be more images of this place (and possibly other local locations) in the future.
