Today there was sad news. Fitting for the Maritime Week 2022 in Bremerhaven, the substructure of the pier of the Geestemole Nord beacon has sunk. Although known for years, it has actually interested no one. If and when the listed tower will be rebuilt, nobody knows at the moment. Of course, no one is […]
At the end of this year’s Perseids sessions two more images from August 13th. The first one, this time in format 4:5 (portrait mode), was taken with the Fuji X-T3. It shows a Perseid between the Pleiades and the planet Mars. And here is also a picture with the startrails to the X-T3 session. […]

Yesterday, Saturday, we took a tour of the two water mills in Cuxland. Via Hainmühlen it went over Beverstedt-Osterndorf… …to Beverstedt-Deelbrügge.
…I saw that there were NLCs to see after all. We were at first about 22:30 o’clock on the way and had looked for NLCs, but that did not look after it. Back again, I saw later from the window then nevertheless still the glow of NLCs over the North Sea. So once again I […]
