Hi all, I just came back from my "standard" tour and took a couple of pictures while doing it. I thought I'd share some:
Well, since it's fall I thought I include this picture here as well. It's an abandoned industrial building that was battered by the same storm that blew over my CBR some months ago (if I ever see that storm again I'll punch him in the nose!). So why is that among fall impressions when it already happened some months ago? Well, the tiles did FALL off of it now, didn't they.
An old windmill that has just recently got it's "wings" back a couple of weeks ago (has been without any for years).
Some general cental/northern German landscapes:
The trees have started to change colours:
An isolated farm somewhere between nowhere and the end of the world:
It's easy to see why many Germans who immigrated to the US (I'm of German descent) ended up homesteading in the upper midwest... some of your photos look like they could have been taken in Minnesota and Wisconsin.

The biggest ones could throw 300-400kg (660 - 880 pounds) heavy stones up to 600m (660 yards) far....quite impressive. They were also used to throw animal carcasses and burning oil filled barrels into enemy castles to spread diseases and fire. Sometimes even living enemy soldiers or refuges were thrown back into the castle to demoralize the defenders.
The one in the picture is rather small.
