I have finished my nightshift on Saturday morning at 7:30 am and instead of going home I rode on my motorbike to the lake Forstsee, because I wanted to see how fit I still am after doing nothing in months.
My backpack weighed about 10 kilos (22 pounds), which is about two thirds or half the weight I usually would carry on longer hikes, but soon I realized that I need to do a lot of training to be fit enough for real hikes in the mountains. Conclusion after 2 hours: I am not fit enough anymore 😅

At first I wanted to make a Monochrome post, but then I thought that if I only post every two weeks at the moment, I should at least add some more color to the post about two monochrome dead trees.
So I have added some a little bit more colorful images which I have photographed during the same hike on the Dobratsch Mountain in the beginning of January 2019.

This was my first time photographing at the Lake Faak / Faaker See and I have never been on this hill before, where they have a High Ropes Park in the forest on top of the hill (

Misty Lake Faak and a little bit of Alpenglow

Who would have thought that shortly after I have taken these photos the whole world would change?
