Right in the centre of Hanover the Eilenriede, one of the most important municipal forests in Europe, covers an area of roughly 650 hectares. In the course of almost 2 years, the Hanover-born Jens Franke has documented this fascinating habitat on an almost daily basis. The result of his efforts: a calendar presenting 12 motives selected out of more than 5,000 photographs. These pictures show the wonderful changes in nature over the seasons and are a homage to nature and its characteristic traits as well as to the city of Hanover. The project is not a commercial one. All profits that surmount the costs of the production will be donated to rebuild a rehabilitation centre for ill or injured animals in the Waldstation Eilenriede.[gallery]
