Travel Tuesday: Tetrapods

Each of these tetrapods weights about 6 tons. They are used for saving the coasts from heavy surfs and breakers. You’ve already seen them in action in one of my last images taken on Heligoland.

Take care!

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.

Take care!

Throwback Thursday: Lavender in winter

 

We have some lavender plants in our garden. Every fall the plants seem to die. All the blossoms wither and the twigs shrivel. Thus, we trim them usually. But, we start trimming not earlier but the blossoms are withered.

This year this particular plant (although we have it already for some years) wasn’t interested to stop blooming. Even in December, when we got some snow, they didn’t stop. And now, in February, they are still blooming. What a surprise!

Take care!

Travel Tuesday: water vs land

 

Here, you can see the iconic symbol of Helgoland the “Lange Anna” (tall Anna). This time you can see it from a slightly different perspective. For this image I was nearly on sea level. On the right you can see the start of the concrete wall.

Next Monday, I’ll show you the rock needle from a more common perspective.

Take care!
