Some sunset pictures from Glameyer-Stack which is a place, near Otterndorf, at the river Elbe. From there my hometown is nicely visible at the horizon. The sunset was quite nice having good colours. However, due to the ships moving on the river, it was not really possible to do any good time exposure.

Haven’t been out for some bird shooting for a while. I took the opportunity on Sunday morning to get out to 2 places to see what is around. In Dorum near to the Obereversand lighthouse I found lots of European Starlings. The juvenile starlings are close to the shoreline preparing for their first migration in […]
Another evening in Cuxhaven’s heatherfields. I hate midges. So many of them flying around there… Although the sunset itself showed fantastic coloured sky, the blooming of the heather is nearly gone in the area, so not such a good location anymore. Below a panorama shot of 5 pictures taken in portrait mode using the D800 […]
Tried some morning shots at the Alte Liebe area in Cuxhaven. Unfortunately a small band of clouds prevented the skyfire.
Two attempts to grab some pictures of the prospering heather in the refuge near the shoreline. The morning didn’t went that well as the expected light was not showing up. The evening hours did much better with the light.
The last one from the alternate position did not turn out as good as I was hoping. The skies weren’t that much populated with clouds as hoped for. Therefore, another try at this place. This time it turned out much better. I did several long exposures using the D800 and the Zeiss 21mm with a […]
I was hoping for some nice colours with clouds in the morning. However, this did not happen. Sunrise has already moved further forward in south direction, so there won’t be much time left to shoot from this position in 2017.
Rare finding here in Cuxhaven – a field with sunflowers. Looks like not intentionally have been seeded for this and still a bit sparse but somewhat nice. Shortly I’ve taken the pictures, it started to rain. Shot with the D800 and the Sigma 24-105mm using a tripod.
Another sunset at Cuxhaven’s monument at the river Elbe and the Northern Sea. This time from a different location I never were before. Unfortunately the sky didn’t have much clouds above the monument. I used the PC-E 24 Tilt/Shift lens on the D800. However, still need to learn appropriate tilt usage.
