The Ghost Gorge

At some point everybody experiences a time, when even the favorite hobby brings no joy. For me this happened in January and February 2018. Reason for my lack of interest to go outside and take pictures was - besides the bad weather - also the fact that I was moving to a different town. But after I was settled in my new home Regensburg, it was again time to pack my hiking boots and camera and explore my new front yard: The alps. My best friend Lucas and I went to the Leutascher Ghost Gorge in Garmisch-Partenkirchen at the border of Austria. Luckily, the weather was bad and we had the whole gorge for ourselves. Also, the view on the mountain range was just perfect. But see for yourself…

Bad Weather, Best Weather!

In summer, when the good weather lures everybody outside to see the sights of the surroundings, you can almost forget about taking good photos. Instead, you find everything from photobombs to crowded parking lots. One more reason to see bad weather as good weather, especially as a photographer. During our trip through the Leutascher Ghost Gorge we didn’t meet a soul. We took our sweet time enjoying the view and the gorge without any jostling. In summer you can hardly expect that, especially because the gorge is highly accessible. A well signposted trail (which can be classified as rather easy) leads all around. In our case we had to sacrifice hiking the rail leading to the waterfalls due to the season. It was closed because of the danger of falling icicles.

This overshadowed our mood a bit, but luckily there is Google. Nearby are the Kuhflucht Waterfalls, which are among the biggest in Germany. Since we had some time left and the waterfalls were on our way back to Regensburg, we stopped there for a short excursion. And we weren’t disappointed! The weather was still quite winterly, freezing most of the waterfalls. Tough luck? No! When else do have the opportunity to touch a waterfall … After a short hike uphill, we could already marvel at the first waterfalls.

Let’s see what the coming months will bring regarding photography. Right now, I haven’t overcome the low point completely, but maybe this changes with spring, longer days and maybe with a new lens 😉
