Photo Impressions, Scenaries and Side Stages


Going through the year

Spring Bloomers

- Posted in Seasons by

Wild crocuses are pretty common in our area. They pop up all of a sudden in March and form beautiful flowery carpets all over the place.
This photo was taken as an entry for our internal monthly competion among the members of the Fotoclub Fürstenwalde.

Ice-fishing on Lake Scharmuetzel

- Posted in Seasons by

Lake Scharmützel (next to Bad Saarow east of Berlin) is the second biggest lake of the federal state of Brandenburg. It is approx. 10 Km long, 1,5 Km wide and is up to 29 Meters deep. From time to time, the lake does freeze over in winter and is used for all kinds of leisure activities, from skating to ice-fishing to warming yourself at the Gluehwein stands on the lake. Mind you, a frozen Scharmützel lake is a rare event, especially as the winters tend to get warmer every year. Not surprisingly, this photo was taken in 2006.

End of Season

- Posted in Seasons by

This photo was taken in Rome, Villa Borghese gardens, end of November 2015, on a cold and rainy day. A strange contrast between the rather bleak day and the colours of the merry-go-round. Not surprisingly, not a lot of people around, never mind kids; makes you wonder what the owner is waiting for.

Pintsch Harbour (Pintschhafen)

- Posted in Seasons by

Today, the Pintsch harbour in Fürstenwalde is but a small remainder (and reminder) of the former Pintsch industrial estate with more than 12.000 employees. This photo was taken December 2012. Since then, winters with snow have become pretty scarce. The full-sized image (approx. 12 MB) can be downloaded here.
