The Lubitel in Hiller Torfmoor

1

With the help of my Lubitel, I have discovered the sprawling nature of the Hiller Torfmoor (peat bog).

Typically lomographing is done mostly in cities. Here you can do well, such as with the LC-A , easily and spontaneously shooting the most interesting and most bizarre of moments, without using the viewfinder. With the Lubitel in the Hiller Torfmoor you shoot slower, more focused, because of the technical nature of TLR cameras, a completely different angle, another perspective.

A popular destination in the the district of Minden-Lübbecke is the great peat bogs in Hille. It is the largest and most valuable peat bog in North Rhine-Westphalia. The bog is an important habitat for endangered animals and plants.

A walk through the bog is convincing through of its many impressions and moods.

Subjects for Lomographs are plentiful there. Moorschnucken (White Polled Heath) and its companions, storks and other animals, a mud-covered man bathing in the moor, but also beautiful panoramas loaded with various different lighting conditions to photograph.

There are many ways through the moor. Depending on the time and your desire, you can choose from 2 hikes after 2km, a moor-experience-trail of 2.5km, and the large circular route with its length of 7.5km.

My conclusion: Those looking for a break from the hustle and stress of the city and looking for some nature, be excited by Hiller moor! A visit to Torfmoor has its charms in every season. Lomo and nature is always a beautiful combination.

    Lomography Redscale XR 50-200 120: Perfect for Endless Multiple Exposures!

    About two years ago or so, I purchased the Lomography Redscale XR 50-200. I saved just one roll of this film and waited for the right moment to shoot with it. In April this year, I just wasn't able to take it anymore! I loaded this film into my Lubitel 166+, which I realized I hadn't used for maybe about six months. One idea came to mind: taking crazy multiple exposures!

    Fresh from the LomoLab: My Summer at a Campsite

    I prefer being outdoors whenever I go on a vacation at the seaside. For this reason, I always choose to stay at a campsite instead of a hotel. This year, I stayed at a beautiful one in the south of Italy. Here is a series of photos which I received a few days ago from the excellent LomoLab service, taken with my Sprocket Rocket. Have a look after the jump!

    The World, According to Herr Willie: The Amazon

    It was the Amazon which I had longed for my whole life. And when it was finally a set deal that I will travel to Brazil with two of my best friends for the Copa do Mundo (World Cup), we really had to start our adventure in the Amazon. I had known about this magical place deep in the rainforest. There was a lodge run by local people of indigenous background, with wooden houses that float on the water and a limited number of visitors. It was eco-tourism as how it should be. To preserve and to celebrate one of the most impressive locations I have seen so far.

    12 Months, 12 Projects: February - Nighttime Traffic

    My list of resolutions for 2015 consists of 12 projects, one for every month. In February, I wanted to take one of those long exposure night shots of traffic. You know the type: nighttime cityscape, with bright red and white stripes where traffic passes. I love those shots, but I had never gotten around taking one.
