End of the year on MTB

December 30st 2016: My last ride on MTB in the Harz for 2016. With my friend Frank I went to the Brocken. It was not that kind of hard MTB tour even not a training. Almost no sweat and I wasn't even not exhausted.

It was pure fun in the nature, enjoying the beauty of the scene with lots of sunshine in cold weather. It could hardly be a better end of the year than this day.

More pics to be seen: go here

Christmas action

On December 22nd we got a call for a large construction fire Downtown of Goslar. As a captain on duty I responded to the call. This fire brought us lots of work until December 23rd in the evening. This was not the Christmas preparation with lots of rest and relaxing as I wished to have. There is a small video of the fire@Facebook showing my arrival at the scene and the extension of the fire while our Chief organized the first actions.

The Autostadt: Wolfsburgs famous place for automobile fans, art and culture connoisseurs, gourmets and people who love architecture and design. During Holiday season, a nice Christmas Market can be found in the Autostadt. More interesting the smokestacks of the Volkswagen power plant are illuminated according to the actuel advent Sunday.

This picture was taken 10 years ago one day after 3rd advent. The atmosphere is steill the same - even 10 years after I shot this nice photo. Just go and see the Autostadt during Christmas season! You will love it

2nd Advent in the Harz Mountains

When I was young, we had lots of snow around Christmas. It seems, that we get less snow in the Harz mountains these days. If this is an indication for a climate change? Yes for sure. If this climate change is sustainable? I don't now. What I know is that cold winter days with sunshine but without snow have their own attraction.

This picture was taken during sunset on a sunny winter sunday nearby Oderteich. The oldes man made lake in Europe.
