Throwback Thursday: Lisbon

This time, three years ago, I was in Lisbon. Time to remember. There are still many undeveloped images on my disk. I have an enormous backlog 😦

Carnival is a huge event in our region. I guess, I mentioned this fact several times here in my blog. With a few friends, I flee these days as often as possible. Most times, we head to the warmer south.

Monochrome Madness 4-42

 

This rock needle is one of the landmarks of Helgoland. This most iconic symbol for the whole island is called “Lange Anna” (tall Anna). Most people will recognise it, even when not have been there.

The island is a huge red sandstone in the middle of the North sea. Because of the relative soft and porous material rain and salt water eat up the stone. Decades ago, people tried to save the island from the sea by building a concrete wall at this side of the island, because it is the weather side. Nearly all storms attack this side of the island.

There is a path between the concrete wall and the foot of the cliff. But, access is forbidden because of the danger. Parts of the cliff might fall down of huge waves might come over the concrete wall. A huge gate keeps people out of here. A different perspective on the Tall Anna and a better view on the concrete wall you can see in my last weeks Travel Tuesday post.
