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 ūüôā 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 4-38

 

This image is from January 2011. It’s taken on Helgoland. While you’re reading this, I’m on Helgoland again. It’s mid winter here and I’m here with a few friends. Helgoland isn’t faced with snow very often.

Once, these booths were used by fishermen during the lobster season for their seasonal workers to sleep here. Nowadays, you find a bar, an information center, shops and so on.
