Nature Walk in Germany

Tonight I was looking for an idea for a post. My first idea was missing a few needed pictures that I thought I had taken, but alas they weren’t in my camera.

Other ideas struck out as well and finally I decided to look at what pictures I took one year ago today.

German Countryside, Jena, Germany, Long walk, pondOne year ago today I took A Long Walk in the German Countryside near Jena, Germany. I decided to share some more pictures from the walk.

Here is a pond that I passed along the way. I really like the reflections in the pond and it seemed so peaceful.

Stream, Rock Walls, Germany, Jena, CountrysideThe pond was fed by a small stream and luckily the path that I was following also followed the stream. In some places the stream was lined with stone walls. They were very picturesque, especially with the moss growing on the stones.

Bee Hives, Germany, Thuringia, Woods, Nature ReserveIn one clearing along the path I saw some colorful boxes. You may know that these are bee hives. I am not sure if I have ever seen a group of hives as colorful as these. They are usually just white. However, I just looked at my post Flowing with Honey and there is a picture there that shows some hives of different colors. Just not quite so colorful as these.

Nature Preserve, Germany, Thuringia, Jena, Germany, CountrysideI really liked the owl on this sign. I saw this sign in several different places. My Universal Translator is coming up with Nature Preserve Area if I use the camera. If I type in Naturschutzgebiet it comes back as Nature Reserve. You must remember that German has some long compound words and they will not fit on the signs without hyphens 🙂

In any case both mean roughly the same thing.

Lederhosen, Suspenders, Walk in the countrysideI really like this picture. Also out for a walk was an older man with lederhosen and suspenders. Unfortunately the picture is a bit dark, but it brings back memories.

I hope you enjoyed the pictures from my Nature Walk.

Now for some sleep before an early morning conference call with colleagues in Germany.
