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!

Travel Tuesday: Paparazzi

 

There are photographers around for taking photographs from the private lives of famous people (i.e. politicians, music or film stars and other celebrities) with-out their permission (often out of hides) for selling them to magazine publishing houses called yellow press. Here this kind of photographers is called paparazzi (plural).

When I was on Helgoland recently with my friends, we were kind of paparazzi, too 🙂 Our celebes were the wild living animals: seals and sea-birds.

The seal in the above image isn’t in danger. The line in front of the seal marks the edge of a small air-field and helps, to keep people out of the danger zone. Because seals can’t read, the two runways have to be checked before every use of the runway.  We also kept a distance of at least 30 m from them. Because of the chosen perspective and lens, it looks much shorter.

Take care!

 

Monochrome Madness 4-40

I took this image while on Helgoland the week before last.

Despite having already so many images from here. I really love the small lighthouse standing on the beach of the small island beside Helgoland. I love, how it oversees the dunes, the beach and and see. I have many images from my trips which this lighthouse as a part of the image. Every single image is different because of different weather conditions. Here we have some drama in the clouds. Another image has a sunny beach. These changing conditions make the coastal areas so interesting for me from a photographers point of view.

This is my contribution to Monochrome Madness organized by Leanne Cole for more than four years now. Look at here site on Wednesday (Australian time), to see many more monochrome images created by many other talented photographers from all over the world.

I’d also encourage you to participate. The conditions are  published in each of her Monochrome Madness posts.

Take care!

When we were traveling in northern Norway in February 2016, I noticed this light beam breaking through the dense clouds.

Travel Tuesday: Evening mood at low tide

Being near the ocean give wonderful light. Open you eyes and see, what mother nature celebrates.

My daughter picked this image for her living room: 100×50 cm printed on canvas. Looks gorgeous.

Take care!
