So much to do/days in Sundsvall

The last few days I spent either in Sundsvall or at home unboxing. I feel like I want to get so many things done at once, that there is no time for anything else. Not everything went according to plan now and some things turned out more complicated than I thought. I am currently only…

Late autumn hikes

Recently I went hiking a few times in Ratingen. I found this great website with hiking routes in the area, so it was easy finding a good place to start. On most of the hikes it was raining and cloudy, so I didn't take as many pictures as I usually do. The ones I took…

Velbert and surroundings

Another hike I undertook with a friend led me to the area around Velbert. It was only a short hike, so I didn't take many pictures, but I just had to try out my new tele lens. Many pictures turned out blurry, because I have yet to learn how to handle the tele lens and…

Autumn hike in Hinsbeck

Last weekend I was hiking with a friend and we visited the beautiful area around Nettetal and Hinsbeck. We started the tour at around 9:00h in the morning and the weather was just perfect for a hike. The sun was shining and we had around 20°C, with a fresh breeze of wind bringing cool air.…

Fairytale Forest

On one of my last days in Sweden, I did something that I had been meaning to do for a long time: A photoshooting in the woods. So I went hiking, bit I took with me everything I would need to take the kind of pictures I had in my mind. I didn't drive far,…

The Swedish countryside

During my days in Sweden I visited the Swedish countryside around Näsåker. It was a long drive on mainly well kept roads, but partly also on gravel roads. I find them rather hard to drive on, because you can't see damage in the road as well as on asphalt roads and I always feel like…

Some much needed rain

So then came a day of rain. Finally. After weeks of drought and heat, finally some rain came. And with all the forest fires going on in Sweden it was very much needed. I was so happy when I looked outside the window in the morning and noticed all the clouds, that were hanging so…

Explorations

For a few days, I drove around quite a bit to explore the area around where I was staying in Sweden and see the different landscapes this place had to offer. I followed some small streets and found little creeks and lakes in the middle of the forest. The sun was shining so bright, that…

Skuleskogen Nationalpark II

I'm writing this now after a long and exciting day. We went hiking in the Skuleskogen Nationalpark again and took the south entry this time. We went to see Slåttdalsskreva and took the hiking trail over Slåttdalsberget to get there. It was super hard to  go all the way up, especially since the way soon led out…

Into the forest

Yesterday evening I drove around a bit to explore the area around Örnsköldsvik. I found this remote road, leading deep into the forest. I stoped the car and got out to explore a bit of the forest nearby. It was beautiful in the evening light of the (seemingly) soon setting sun. After spending some time…
