The mountain with the big antenna on the top is called “Hornisgrinde”. With 1,164 m it’s the highest mountain of the Northern Black Forest. A few weeks ago I climbed the Hornisgrinde by bike with a good friend. I wrote a post about this tour in my personal blog (in German).
This is the Pfinztal from Berghausen to Grötzingen. That’s where we live. ❤️
These hills are the most northern tip of the Black Forest. Click the image for a large view.
The lake “Mummelsee” is one of the most important attractions in the Northern Black Forest. It is located 1.036 m ASL and 17 m deep. You can find some more info on Wikipedia.
I hope all your plans and dreams for 2011 come true. I think it’s going to be a fantastic year.

The end of 2009 is near and it’s time for some words. Continue reading “Goodbye 2009”
Yesterday I re-visited one of the most beautiful places in the Southern Black Forest, called Schauinsland. This is a beech tree that got its shape from the steadily blowing wind.
The weather was really uncomfortable (fog, wind, heavy snowfall, -5°C) but perfect for shots like this one. I’m really happy with how it came out. I didn’t convert the photo to b&w but due to the fog there were no colors. So it’s a “natural” b&w. 🙂
