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. Very nice effect, but also difficult to shoot due to the heavy red component. The side effects were aggravating, partly by the artists. I cannot understand […]

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.
…, I hope, at least. During my walk around the Kugelbake during the stormfront Ignatz I noticed a small dirt nest in the beach oat. Not very “Fridays for Future” like.
Finally once again a strong wind in Cuxhaven. Not quite as strong as last time, but at least something. In addition good weather and high tide at the right time. What else do you need? The good weather then also called many Cuxhavener and tourists to see the spectacle at close range. It was nearly […]
I had a little observer in the morning while taking some photos in Cappel-Neufeld. They are nice to look at, but you would rather not have them in your house or car…
In the morning the weather and light was just as good. I could test the Nikkor 500f/5.6 a bit more extensively at the Kugelbake. On the way back, a more rarely seen species sat on one of the fences. I am almost sure that this is a tree pipit. So far I am more than […]
