From 7th to 13th November we did a trip to Spain’s Extremadura. Mainly it was about bird photography. Partly from hides, but also on excursions. In retrospect one can say that the season is not suitable for it. Rather the spring or the early autumn should be considered here. Nevertheless, some species were to be […]
I created a black/white version of a picture for the contribution about the week of lights from Obereversand.
Short tour in the Duhner Heide and some pictures from there. The pictures were taken with the Nikon D500 and the AF-S 500 PF.
On Saturday evening the artist duo KystLys illuminated the Midlum windmill. Yesterday evening it was the lighthouse Obereversand in Dorum-Neufeld at the end of the 1st Wurster Light Week.

Last week, the artist duo KystLys turned various objects into works of light art during the 1st Wurster Light Week. Yesterday the Midlum Mill was the selected object. It would have been nice if the installation had been activated until the morning hours, but unfortunately the two artists already started to dismantle the spotlights at 10 pm. […]
Actually, the whole week was/is predicted to be overcast with occasional rain. That this is not always correct was shown again early this morning.
During a visit in the area where I was born I had the opportunity to take a few pictures of the windmills taht are maintained and mostly well restored there. The weather on last Thursday was quite pleasing. Most of the windmills there are so called “Galerieholländer” or “Wallholländer”. Most of the time the 24mm […]
After the Bode galaxies shots I programmed the software and took 175 pictures of the Iris Nebula. This ran until about 4:30 am. The recording data and astrometry evaluation.
Not a cloud in the sky. Very promising to try the Nikon D5200 on the telescope. The test candidate was M81/M82. I had already photographed them twice in the past, but with the D800. Following the recording data and the astrometry evaluation.
