I was looking (again) for some Northern Lights, but wasn’t lucky with that. While waiting, I took some pictures of the Kugelbake monument with the stars above. Definitely a shot I will do another time with some better conditions. The shot was taken with the D850 and the Zeiss 18/f3.5.
Early morning hours in three locations. On my way to a breakfast appointment, I started 2h earlier and went to three locations. First stop was at the Midlum windmill. As the sky didn’t have any clouds, the location didn’t work well today. However, one panorama image has survived the bin. Next stop was at another […]
Below are the planned day trips. Some of the locations might get combined, depending on time permitted. Also, we might revisit some of the locations during the stay. Daytrip #1: Ponta de São Lourenço This will take us to the Ponta de São Lourenço, a nice peninsula at the east side of the island. The trip will […]
We’re going to Madeira this year. 2 weeks should allow us to see several locations, not only for photography. Below is my current planning. Short-Trip #1 The short trip will have 2 locations with a Funchal view from the east. The overall distance is about 8 km. There are 2 similar locations in this area, […]

The calendar contains a total of 14 images (plus cover picture) from the Cuxhaven area. All pictures are printed in DIN-A4. In addition, each calendar comes with a voucher for one or two pictures in print quality […]
I had a wonderful session yesterday evening at Obereversand. The sky looked promising and in the end not as disappointing than last time I was there for the lunar eclipse. I did several shots including HDRs and Panoramas. Two to share for the moment…
I had already my doubts when weather forecast was showing clouds coming in from the north over the northern part of Germany. Anyways, I got up at 4:15 to drive to the lighthouse in Dorum-Neufeld for some shots of the eclipse. I arrived shortly after 5:15 having another 30 minutes until the total eclipse should […]
The third object I shot during the night of Jan-2nd to Jan-3rd. Also, my first attempt to shoot unattended. After setting the parameters and the started the sequence, I went to sleep. However, during the night, some clouds came in and did hide the galaxy, so I had to sort these pictures out. My attempt […]
As mentioned in previous post, I processed the Pleiades pictures taken on Jan-2nd. I am quite happy with the result, much better than the previous shots of that object.
After several weeks with only grey sky, January 2nd was clear skies and I took the opportunity to shoot some objects. First I tried to shoot the Lowers’ Nebulae but it was too low at the sky so the house roof came into the view and I had to abort this session. Next object were […]
