Springtime in the Lahn River Valley

Recently I participated the "A Nature Photograph per Day" challenge on my Facebook page, which basically meant to post 7 nature photos on 7 consecutive days. Somewhere along the line – I think it was on day 3 – I decided to keep my photos "local". There might be more spectacular landscapes out there but the Lahn River Valley is what surrounds me daily. And I have always been in love with the river! I thought it would be nice to share my photos here too:

The Lahn River near my studio on one of the first hot spring days of 2016.

That's Hain Forest which is just a few minutes up the hill from my studio.
Queen Ann's Lace. I love them, so we tried to grow them in our garden, but no way – it is a wildflower …

The local lake, one of our fave summertime hideaways.

In spring and autumn we often get these fog banks along the river. They make our evening hikes a bit more magical.

A little meadow with a view on the lake.

Wildflowers on the riverbank, casually arranged by nature.
 I hope you enjoyed this little river jaunt!
