I thought it was a funny place for a knight to stand: Under the striped cannopy.

View from the top

Inside the monestary on Mont St. Michel. The view down this rail in the front it actually historic. A tilted elevator was running up here to transport goods to the monestary.

The Illumination

Mont St. Michel in the night time illumination and with the high tide almost all the way in.

I used the good weather lately to take some shots in our area.

We lately visited the Neanderthal Museum. This guy is set up inside. He is a Neanderthaler in a suit. Amazing how that looks.

Temple Image

There is another photo of the temple in Hamm. This is the back side of it.

I entered the image into the row at HiddenShots - our new photogame. Have you seen it, yet?

Road Side Chappel

This chappel on the side of the road, we came by a few times already. I took the time on Thursday to take an image of it.

The Pewit

This pewit was all alone in one field. At the moment the fields around our town are full of these funny birds. I love how their wings look overly wide while in flight.

Nothing to see here?

I found this blockage across the entry to a field. Nothing to see here? Well. Strangely it has started to sprout green and looks alive.

The temple is painted

I don't know if you remember my image of the Hindu Temple in Hamm

now I went back (again) after the painting that was going on for a while was finished. This is how it looks now. I originally thought the temple towers were supposed to be white. Now I like them much better painted.

The weather was much better this time, but kind of simmilar, wasn't it?

Cow Field

We hiked by this really pretty field with gorgeous cows and a really pretty tree.

Friday, May 15, 2015


We went for an excursion on the side of the Lippe. Beautifuly quiet views.

The Gull and the Fish

We saw this gull taking off out of the North Sea (well, I barely missed it taking off) and flying away with the fish it just caught.

Kites all over the sky

Seeing so many kites in the sky is just very thrilling. We did fly our kite later, but not here.

Weather to dream of

First of May, holiday... and off to the beach.

St. Peter Ording, North Sea, Germany.

Tuesday, May 12, 2015


This funny sign I found on the beach in St. Peter: Strandkorbgrenze. The edge to which the sitting baskets are allowed to be placed.

Northern Fisherboat

I have spent a few days in northern Germany. This image was taken on the beach of St. Peter Ording.

Sunday, May 10, 2015


We came to Cancale, north shore of Brittany after we left Mont St. Michel. The oysteres were pretty much the first thing we got to see. 

Here are some images from an oyster shop at the waterfront. Look at those prices.

Evening Mood

This is a moment to remember. This photo was taken up on the wall of Mont St. Michel at sunset. I was trying to get more than one raying highlight from the sun. With the tidal flats below us, this was working out when I found the propper place.

Le Mont St. Michel

Here is the mountain in its full glory. Without the cars and busses that used to block the entry. The new bridge is finished and the landscape will now change.

Wednesday, May 6, 2015


This is the gate - including a draw bridge - on Mont St. Michel. Our hotel - La Mère Poulard - is just to the left in this picture.

light peeking through

I found this door to a very slim building. The evening sun was behind the building and was shining through the door.
Maybe you like this image as well.

Evening Sun on the Mountain

The Mont St. Michel at sunset - this over shooting of sunlight into the lens was not that easy to adjust and to find the right spot and moment. I do love lense flare, but not if it falls onto unfitting parts of the image. But gladly I got my shot.

The mountain's shadow

An interesting observation on Mont St. Michel: With the sun at a relatively low angle the mountain casts a shadow onto the tidal flats that is really distinguishable and looks very much like the mountain itself from a distance. The absolutely flat surrounding of the mountain makes this show up really well.

The birdies

The gulls and ravens are dominating the view of the mountain. These two guys are hanging out ontop of some roof decorations as the night falls.
