Post Hello from Cologne

Hi everybody,

I've joined the forum in order to learn more about birding and wildlife observation/wildlife photography. Currently I'm looking for a new set of binoculars, but more regarding that in an upcoming threat - the low-budget piece I own is in dire need of a fitting replacement

I very much enjoy being outdoors and (naturally, I think) observing animals and landscapes, including photgraphy. Especially the mountains (European Alps in my case) are a place a regularly return to...it seems I am a bit of an alpine addict
Can't wait for the hiking season to begin, in a couple of weeks. Once the snow melts above 2800m.

Greetings and so long,
RedP

Thanks for the replies! And as you know, we Germans are pretty decent with threats

I have a website with some of my favourite photographs, from alpine tours. Will post them here sooner or later, surely.
