This morning I went back to Cappel-Neufeld. During the evening shots this week I had seen several Common Redshanks near the jetty. I wanted to have a closer look at that.

Very close to my home, wild meadow flowers bloom in different colors on the roadside, so I tried it with my macro lens.
Actually a good cloud forecast was given for the evening (52% high clouds), in the course of the afternoon this shifted towards 82%, so rather bad conditions for some nice sunset pictures. I decided to give it a go anyway. Instead of the nature reserve close to Cuxhaven I went to Cappel-Neufeld beach. The Zeiss […]
In this article I give some hints about the visited places and how the pictures were taken. Parque Infantil “Pico dos Barcelos” The Parque Infantil Pico dos Barcelos is a children’s playground with a small park and a restaurant. There is a parking lot directly in front of the entrance (but only about 20 parking spaces). […]
The total distance I recorded with my Garmin (without flight) is shown here: On Madeira, 2053 kilometres were covered over the 2 weeks. During this time I used 2 cameras with overlapping lenses. The Nikon D800 was mainly used in Funchal in the market hall and at the volcano visit. Otherwise the Nikon D850 was […]

The way was quite exhausting, especially the last 500 meters. After 2500 meters you reach the above shown house, approx. 500 meters before the summit (where it gets quite […]
The so-called “Valley of the Nuns” Curral das Freiras was also on our list. However, it was not quite the expected highlight. Especially at the Miradouro do Curral das Freiras there are many tourists, who are driven up by busses during a day trip.
At first we didn’t really have this place on our list. Here the visitor also has the rough lava coast, as in Porto Moniz. Would be interesting how this place is when winds are higher.. In the picture above the view goes towards Sao Vicente. Through the cut between east and west part of the […]
We were several times in Porto Moniz, also on the round tour, in one go completely around the island. Right behind Porto Moniz there is Achadas da Cruz. The easiest way to reach the village is via a cable car (thanks, no, I’d rather not :-)).
Here is another sequence of 4 pictures. All were taken within 50 seconds. There you can see how fast the clouds move through the area.
