Hiking through a wild and romantic gorge across trails and stairs to enjoy Kneipp baths and a scenic view as well as the calming sounds of nature has once again drawn me to the countryside. Far from many holiday destinations you can also spend a wonderful time in the nearby regions of your own country.
This time I captured a little walk through the woods into deep gorges on my SIGMA 24mm F 1.4 DG HSM Art lens, combining my tour with a visit at the close Alpaca farm. As an all-rounder lens I’d also taken along the SIGMA 35mm F 1.4 DG HSM Art again.
I was particularly looking forward to the 32 characteristic Alpacas. These cuddly animals radiate an incredible inner balance. No wonder they’re said to have a therapeutic effect on humans. Even though Alpacas are shy animals, a little patience will make them curious despite their reserved character so you can stroke them every once in a while. They were especially interested in my camera which they were permanently focusing and in front of which they posed as well. At an extensive walk in the nearby forests you could lead the animals on a leash and thus get to know them better.
A wonderful experience I can only warmly recommend. There’s nothing more beautiful than enjoying nature and capturing the moment on a lens: Just let your soul fly away. Now it’s your turn! Weekend is coming.
All the best and see you soon!
