Today, I spent a visit to the Veil Falls in the Ammer Valley. The Ammer Valley offers great opportunities for almost all photographers. Let be Landscape photographers, wildlife photographers or Nature Photographers. Within 40 meters I was able to capture photos of birds, mushrooms or waterfalls.
Here I provide for you a small selection of the captured images. I will post further images as soon as I have processed them all back at home. Until then, I hope you enjoy the images!

After a rainy night, the weather cleared up in the morning, and nothing more stood in the way of my tour to the Schwarzseekogel (2931 meters). But it must be noted that the weather forecast predicted rain again already at 14:00.
The ascent was via the Giggijoch (2200 meters), the Rotkogel hut (2660 meters) along the Schwarzsee to the summit of the Schwarzkogel.
Unfortunately, I could not reach the summit because of the heavy rain.
Nevertheless, I managed to take pictures of the opposite mountain range during the ascent, which were partly covered by the rain clouds.
A spectacle of a particular kind!
The photo shows Windacher Daunkogel (3330 meters), which was hiding in the clouds, as well as the Wilden Leck (3359 meters) in the left part of the picture. In the right part of the photograph, the Stubaier Wildspitze (3341 meters) rose.
I have to say that today I find it especially difficult to carry the heavy camera equipment in addition to the high mountain equipment.
Today I roamed the woods around the Ködeltalsperre on my photo tour.
The drinking water reservoir Mauthaus – also called Ködeltalsperre – is a dam in Bavaria, which was built between 1968 and 1972 near Nordhalben for the supply of drinking water. As a secondary purpose, it serves flood protection, low water elevation and the generation of electricity from hydropower.
The dam offers a vast range of photo motives of the most different kinds.
It also shows its charm in all seasons.
The picture shows the starter, which is located about 4.5 km before the main dam.
I can only recommend everyone to include this place on one of their next holiday destinations.
Here the link to the website of Nordhalben, which is an ideal starting point for tours around the dam.
Now 100 days have passed since I started my Foto Challenge.
!00 days full of joy and daily growing enthusiasm. In the beginning, I was a little bit sceptical if I would find enough photo motives for every day. But as so often, I had to be taught a better lesson.
For today’s photo, I visited our local lake to take a picture in the field of bird photography. As motifs, I chose a coot and its chick, who swam along the shore of the lake searching for food.
As it was still very early, there were only a few people around the lake and the wild animals could pursue their morning activities undisturbed.
Unfortunately, this is only ever of short duration until the area fills up with noisy recreational activists,
Due to the Corona crisis and the associated travel restrictions, this year is particularly bad.
Nevertheless, I wish you a lot of fun while looking at the photo!
After the weather improved incredibly today, I use the opportunity for a trip to the foothills of the Alps to take pictures of one or the other waterfall.
I visited today’s waterfall near Pähl already 4 weeks ago, but due to the dryness and low water level of the river, it was hardly visible. All the wilder and more furious, he presented himself to me today.
Besides, I was fortunate once again. For there was no other person in the ravine but me. So I had a lot of time to find the right angle and take long time exposures.
I arrived relatively early at the waterfall, around 06:00, this saved me the use of a neutral density grey filter. I also omitted the use of a polarization filter to better represent the flow velocity of the mountain stream.
For my part, I think that I did a pretty good job with the shot, and I was able to add another magnificent waterfall to my portfolio.
