Just muscles


Just muscles - A charolet bull that I drove by for weeks, lately. I know the owner, too. So, one day, I stopped to take his photo. He was not interested in getting up or posing. So this is the oly pose I got him in.

Almost time for harvest

This Image is also taken out of Season. It is from last fall, close before the harvest.

Landscape with an industrial touch

In the far you see a powe plant blowing up steam from the cooling towers.
The landscape in the front would not make you expect this power plant. But the steam Clouds almost every day make it very noticable.

The opposite view


Look at yesterday's image. Now walk a few steps and then turn around. This is what you will be seeing now.
Mont St. Michel.

The view down the path



The views on Mont St. Michel are overly historic, seen through European eyes. I had the feeling, when talking to other tourists there, that Americans and Asians had an entirely different feel about it.

St. Michel

This is the spine all the way ontop of Mont St. Michel's hightest part of the abbey.

An odd combination

This combination of carved stone and the some-what old-looking tap with the bottom attachment did not look quite right with me.

The Mountain Gate


This is the gate to Mont St. Michel. We lived in the hotel that you see just behind the wall. The place with the Windows you can see. The view was fabulous.

By the lake shore


The lake was quite but for the birds. I know that there are pretty much endless amounts of carp in there, but they did not make themselves known. This place is the swimming location in the summer. But on this coldish winterday it was quiet and empty.

The partie takes a break

This party location gazebo is not in use on this winter day. The party takes a break.

Leading Line



This is a side arm of the breakwater in Friedrichskoog Spitze, Northern Germany.

flowing tides

Here you can see the ocean Tide come in and flow downhill. The breakwater and water management system have created this ridge that is just below the surface.

gridded sea



The fences are meant to keep the sand in place and make them build up. As you can see it is working. The whimbrel is using this beautiful habitat.

Village road


This is one of the drive through villages that you pass when driving through Schleswig Holstein.

I just love the leaning gable of this house on the right.

Twilight

The same tree as yesterday, photographed and processed with slightly different settings. This one is a more hopeful image, less doomed. Maybe less of a nightmare reminder.

Twisted

This tree was just marvelous. The twistedness of it reminds me of "nightmare before christmas".

Twiggy


The branches against the winter sky made the image look gloomy but also hopeful in my eyes.

Tangled




What a tangled mess of branches. I love how they stretch out over the lake here. Look close. You might be able to make out shapes, creatures and faces in between.

Duck Pond


On this murky day, the ducks were faint in the distance. Still I could capture them pretty sharply.
