Taken on a short hike around Ziegenrück. Lake Hohenwarte with former “Conrod” powerplant, which became useless after the damn has been built. (finally it is being renovated)
An awesome “playground” when I was a kid. Now it is owned and access isn’t allowed. (not sure if it was when I was a kid, but in the reunification aftermath, nobody cared)
Always worth a visit. Still an awesome place.
Another taken on a rainy day. Foggy Saale river in Ziegenrück
Upper Saale river with a moody layer of fog on a grey and rainy day.
Upper Saale valley as original as it was before the well known cascade of dams were built. Beautiful nature together with Water mills give an idea how the whole area must have been looked in the past.
Ziemestalbrücke. A stunning piece of engineering, built in 1895. Hasn’t seen any train since 20 years.
Late summer bike ride along upper Saale river. A throwback to my childhood.
Best part about kayaking: floating through a silent and smooth lake. I couldn’t imagine a better way to become one with nature. I like it.
“Der See ist doch gemalt
so wie im Märchen steht der Wald
und der Himmel muss ein Fotofilter sein”
This song came to my mind when hitting the smooth and quiet lake in the early morning for a kayak trip in the golden sunlight.
FYI: this is not a selfiestick. Taken with a DSLR, mounted on a monopod. Just to clear things up.
The song: Prag – Bis einer geht
