Day Sprees

Greetings and welcome to Hohenfels Volks, THE place for our place!

Today we’re taking a short look at short trips. It’s more about ideas for small shooting sessions.

One of the first things to pop into mind are palaces and their gardens. Often, during spring and summer the gardens are alive with flowers and color. Catching one with some nice clouds can make for a whole day affair, just shooting and enjoying the beauty around you. Another great time for palaces and such is during autumn, when the large amounts of trees create a majestic tapestry of golden and red tones woven to bedazzle. A couple good ones to visit are at Bayreuth and Wurzburg.

Another great place for small shooting excursions is any train station. Larger cities and towns often have old buildings, as well as the more modern types. The old abandoned ones make for some nice ambience, and the newer ones can be seen to bristle with life and the vigorous flow of human traffic. Munich and Regensburg have some great places to shoot, both the life and hustle and the seeming decay and abandonment.

Public parks and monuments make for special cases, as at most you can combine a great time shooting with a family picnic. This allows for some spontaneous portraiture fun, and still allows for some breathtaking photos. Some nice ones are at Walhalla and Kelheim.

Take a drive, pull over at some of the smaller stops, and break out your camera. You’ll be surprised by some of the things that will jump out at your lens. With autumn upon our Hohenfels areas, it’s definitely a great time for the little pullovers.

Well, that’s about it for today!

Here’s hoping you enjoy the rest of your week and capture the shots you’ve been wanting. Get out and make it happen, then show us, share what you felt through your images on our Hohenfels Volks Faceboook page.
