About Cord

Gerne fahre ich auf befestigten Wegen entlang von Flüssen, durch Marschland und am Meer entlang. Gerne überall dort, wo nicht der nervige Straßenverkehr verläuft. Mein absolutes Highlight zum Radfahren ist derzeit die Holländische Insel Texel. Die Gelassenheit der Niederländer, die vielen Wege und Straßen und ein fast perfektes ausgeschildertes Radwegenetz macht, neben der beeindruckenden Landschaft, Lust auf Radfahren.In der Fotografie verwende ich eine Spiegelreflex Kamera. Meine Interessen liegen hauptsächlich in der Reise- und Landschaftsfotografie. Radfahren und Fotografieren ergänzen sich meiner Meinung nach sehr gut. Langzeitbelichtungen und die Hypervocale Distanz haben für mich in der Fotografie immer wieder einen ganz besonderen Reiz. Ein Stativ und ein Fernauslöser gehören immer in die Radtaschen bzw. den Rucksack.Du möchtest meinem Profil folgen ?

      As luck would have it, I found an additional camera (Nikon D500) with only 1400 exposures at a fantastic price on Ebay classifieds. Pick-up in the city of Hamburg, not far from the Hafencity. Wow. That's great. You can only strike. So we went to Hamburg without further ado. Camera picked up and test shots in the Hafencity. What more do you want ?With an air temperature of 3 degrees and stormy winds, we went to the "Elphi" for a short rain-free time window. Here the camera was tried out and found to be very good. The sharpness is just great, the focus is noticeably faster and the feel of the camera is really great.
      I'm looking forward to the long exposures and other shots in better weather conditions.
      After a short thunderstorm, we went back to Lüneburg with heavy snowfall. What a day !

      After the weather forecast for this Sunday had finally predicted a sky with few clouds again, it was clear to me that I wanted to photograph the blue hour in the early morning hours.
      I've wanted to photograph the Lauenburg Bridge and the Elbe water for a long time.
      Therefore, it went to Hohnstorf by car at 5:45 a.m. In cozy minus temperatures, I took up the bridge in total darkness. Throwed a look over to Lauenburg and also took the Lauenburg view. Unfortunately, I didn't quite hit the target here. Then it went straight to the caller in Lauenburg. Here I took photos during the blue hour.When the sun came up I was really frozen. With cold fingers I packed up the photo equipment and went back to the car. At 8:00 am we went back to Lüneburg at minus 1 degrees.It was a very special photo walk. The beautiful cold air, mostly only the animal world (cormorants, ducks and seagulls) on the Elbe could be heard, plus this light and the general calm in the morning. What a great start to the day.

      Today's hike went again today as a photo walk along the ship lift in Scharnebeck. I was looking for beautiful motifs in the blue hour and for aperture stars. The blue hour is more or less canceled due to the heavy cloud cover and the dazzling stars cannot be seen properly due to the dark lighting. Since all pictures were taken with long exposure, this tour was fun again.Usually I wanted to end 2020 with a bike tour, but the weather didn't really play along. So it stayed with the photo walks.I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your many "Likes" and your nice comments in 2020. I wish you a happy new, hopefully better, year 2021. Stay healthy, ride more bikes, take more hikes and even more beautiful photos.Greetings from Lüneburg

      Today I did a short photo walk for the “blue hour” through Lüneburg.The idea was that I wanted to photograph the Lüneburg Christmas lights during corona times in lockdown without a large audience. I had had the idea for a long time. Unfortunately, most of the Christmas lights had already been switched off. The colorful illumation of the Lüneburg town hall was missing and the blue lighting of the shower bridge on the Stint was also switched off. The stint itself was only dimly lit. A little disappointed, I stopped my photo walk early. I should have just started on Christmas Day. One never stops learning.Nevertheless, this short photo walk was also fun.

      After weeks of dreary November and December weather, today was a sunny day again. Wow how nice. In my opinion, it was too wet for cycling. In order to take advantage of the nice weather, we went on a short hike to the Fehlingsbleck nature reserve on the Elbe Lateral Canal near Lüneburg. Since I took my photo equipment with me, it turned into a little photo walk.Swans, wild geese, herons, ducks and other feathered animals were plentiful. I also saw my nutrias from summer again. But this time with two very small Nutrias. That was cute.With an air temperature of 8 degrees and little wind, this photo walk was a lot of fun. After two hours we went home again.

      With a pleasant 13 degrees air temperature, felt more like 16 degrees, and hardly any head wind, today's tour went towards Lüdersburg. From Lüdersburg past the golf course towards Echem. This road leads through a beautiful landscape. Since the car traffic is not particularly high here, this section of the route is a lot of fun. From Echem further behind the Elbe side canal back to Lüneburg. In this great weather, despite Corona, there was a lot going on at the ship lift. Despite the small mileage, this tour was very nice due to the great weather. It was also nice that my wife was there again.Komoot recorded this tour correctly, but unfortunately not transferred it to the server. Suddenly, this tour could no longer be found in the app. That is why I had to re-record this tour through a tour planning and import it accordingly. Something else is beautiful.
      Honestly. The KomootApp has been getting worse and worse recently due to the constant updates and alleged improvements. The connections to the server keep breaking off. All data has to be reloaded again and again. What's the matter with Komoot? If the app gets even worse, Komoot will soon stop making sense. ... and that would be a real shame.

      Today's round went through the Elbmarsch towards Hohnstorf with a pleasant 10 degrees air temperature and a moderate headwind. From there along the Elbe with a view of Lauenburg, continue towards Hittbergen. Continue via Lüdersburg, back via Scharnebeck to Lüneburg.It was a great autumn round through the marshland, which was a lot of fun. These tours are also very interesting in terms of photography. Great motifs can be found again and again. Unfortunately, I didn't have my large telephoto lens with me. So I couldn't take in everything that would have been an interesting subject.After the sun disappeared behind the clouds, it became noticeably fresh. You can tell it's already November.

      Today's lap ran through the marshland towards the Elbe. It then went back to Lüneburg via Artlenburg on the Elbe Lateral Canal. At 18 degrees in autumn with lots of sun and a slight headwind, it was once again a little pleasure round. This is how cycling is fun.

      With a pleasant 17 degrees air temperature and little headwind, today's lap went with my wife towards the Elbe. Along the Elbe Lateral Canal to Hohnstorf and back to Lüneburg. On the way there was a heavy rain shower every now and then. Fortunately there were enough trees under which we could shelter. That way we stayed as good as dry. Despite the rain showers, the tour was a lot of fun.

      Today's lap was again with a pleasant 20 degrees air temperature and a little headwind towards the Elbe. In Artlenburg, at the entrance to the Elbe Lateral Canal, a good pinch of Elbe air was sniffed before we went back to Lüneburg. Short but very nice tour.For the photography I only had a fixed focal length of 35mm with me this time. Without zoom and other frills. The zoom in this case was the feet. It was fun again.
