Gertelbach Waterfalls

Just before the end of the year I decided to do a short day trip to the northern Black Forest. I started really early in the morning to beat the other tourists and have the waterfalls to myself. Since I arrived around 7:30 AM I had to start my hiking tour in the dark. Since the weather wasn’t good I had to wait quite a time before it got bright enough to take pictures. Without any other tourist around I was able to spend a lot of time finding the right composition. Only on my way back to the car I met a couple of other hikers climbing the Gertelback Waterfalls.

Reflecting Houses, Tuebingen

Tuebingen is a beautiful old University town near Stuttgart in south Germany. The center of the city mainly consists of these colorful old buildings. I was taking this photograph during winter last year and I needed quite a few tries in order to get this beautiful smooth reflection. Ducks were constantly swimming past and destroyed the amazing reflection of the buildings and lights in the water.
