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!

Today I visited the mallard ducks in Langenautal again. And also this time I was welcomed friendly. Like the day before, the ducks were tough on me. Sometimes they trampled on my shoes. I had a hard to keep them on the distance to frame them in the picture.
After my tour in the Ötztal valley, I went on to the Franconian Forest in the district of Kronach in Upper Franconia.
Today’s tour led me through the Langenau Valley, where an extensive network of hunter’s trails runs through the forest.
At one of the small lakes, I came across a group of mallards, which had settled down there.
After I had positioned my camera with my telephoto lens, suddenly 2 of the ducks moved towards me.
They showed no shyness at all as if I was their parents. Very unusual, as the place is not or only slightly frequented by people.
So I had the good fortune to photograph the ducks at close range. Sometimes I had to increase the distance to the ducks again and again because I could not capture them entirely in the viewfinder with my telephoto lens (Nikkor 200-500mm F5.6 VR).
I was practically pressed by the ducks, a dream of every nature photographer.
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.
