Travel Tuesday: I’m back …

.. from a short trip to Norddeich. 

We arrived at a beautiful summerly day and were welcomed with a blue sky, mild wind and nice 22°C.
Unfortunately, the temperatures dropped to 1 – 8°C for the next days and we were bid a farewell with a gray sky, heavy wind and even some snow and hail between the rain.
But, I won’t complain about the weather at the day we left. I’m happy about the nice days during our stay. Although, the temperatures were cold, the weather was nice and we were outside a lot: walking around, sitting in the beach chair, photographing birds.
This image was developed with the open source raw development tool Darktable. Although it’s installed on my computer for a very long time, I used it only seldom. The user interface is kind of weird. You have to invest some time to understand it. But, it’s worth the effort, as you can see.

Take care!

Throwback Thursday: sur la plage de Cancale

Here we are in Brittany again. At the beach of the picturesque town of Cancale you can find this small square with some booths. They are selling oysters here. Right in front of the coast you can find oyster banks set up by fishermen to breed oysters and harvest them more easily. When enlarging the image you can see some of the banks in the water. The beach right next to this square ist covered over and over with oyster shells. I guess, thousands of generations of oyster shells are laying here, thrown away by the people who bought and eat them. It’s an interesting sound when walking over them.

Take care!
