Throwback to snowier days

The last time it snowed some more, before the spring weather set in, I went out to take some pictures with my drone and just enjoy the fresh powdery snow. It was amazing how beautiful bright and white everything looked then and how different it looks now. I still haven't given up hope for some…

Ice fishing

On saturday I went ice-fishing with a friend. We started in Bispgarden and drove to a nearby lake, where we drilled some holes into the ice... It was quite thick and we were lucky, that the drill was just a bit longer than the ice was thick! This was the lake The surroundings were amazingly…

Die erste Etappe wanderten die…
