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.

As the theme for this weeks Monochrome Madness is “Street Art” or “Grafitti”, I have a gem from Lissabon for you: this mural by Pixel Pancho.

You know, I love these kind of art and so you can find some on my hard disk. But, nearly all of these murals come to live by the colors, it’s hard to find something looking good in monochrome, too.

While Leanne changed her counting from the year and week scheme to a simple counter, I stay with the old numbering. So, don’t feel confused, when checking here site 🙂

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.
