Ansbach/Scheerweiher 5.7.2019

Vocational training in Ansbach (Bavaria). Bicycle ride on the evening before.

Fränkische Rezat, a small river through Ansbach.

After having explored the route to the hospital, where the training takes place, I have a closer look to the flat pond called  Scheerweiher near Schalkhausen, whioch I only passed by before.

I ride a bit along the route around the pond. Nice flowers here: Lady´s bedstraw (Galium verum)

Rampion bellflower (Campanula rapunculus)

A huge oak.

View over the Scheerweiher, with the dam. There I decide to wait for the sunset ...

The sun is deep already, but it will take some more time.

I had a ride along the dam and to the upper (western) end of the Scheerweiher. Along the field lots of Meadowsweet (Filipendula ulmaria).

Carthusian Pink (Dianthus carthusianorum)

Meadow Cranesbill (Geranium pratense)

View from the dam to the Scheerweiher.

I take my seat on the wooden balustrade and wait for the sunset, which comes rather late on July 5th.

The sun slowly going down.

Fish ...

 ... jumping up from the water ... 

Last sunrays

Rather late, long after 9 p.m., I return to the hotel, which is situated only about 1 km from the Scheerweiher.
