Landscapes in Germany

While I often roam northern Europe and other countries I’m also visiting places in Germany, my home country. In particular, I’m planning to do more photography near home – currently the city of Hamburg. So you can expect this gallery to be extended in the future :-).

Near Hamburg

The city of Hamburg has become my home few years ago. Hamburg is not exactly famous for its nature (but for lots of other sights). However, in the outskirts of the city you can find nature refuges, like forests and marshes. I’m planning to explore more of those in the future.

Palatinate

The German region Palatinate is rich in forests, hills, castle ruins and interesting rock formations. In my opinion, autumn is the best time of year to visit the area.

Saxon Switzerland – Kirnitzsch Valley

In Saxony there’s a region called Saxon Switzerland, part of which is a national park. The area is especially known for its spectacular rock formations. However, there are also other interesting features – such as the valley/gorge of the river Kirnitzsch.

When I visited the area in late winter, there was no good light for the rock formations but the conditions were really well-suited for photographing the scenes above. I’ll probably return for the rock formations in the future.
