Night sky over Brandenburg

January 5th, 2016

Over new year we spent some days in Fürstenwerder north of Berlin. The population density is low and from midnight on most of the street lights get shut off so light pollution is much less than near big cities.

So one freezing cold and stormy night (-10°C/14°F) I took the camera and a flashlight and went out.

A walk around the Grubensee in Brandenburg

January 6th, 2014

You don’t often find places where there are absolutely no people in Germany.

We had the luck to visit the “Grubensee” (Link to OSM) on a very nice day in January when nobody else did.

Here are some impressions for you.

Landing stages that are slowly decomposing seem to be one of the main features of the lake.

A young bird in the stream

October 23rd, 2012

I found these pictures when browsing through some old stuff.

This was a really lucky encounter with a young bird who seemed to have had no fear of humans yet.

Berlin

August 18th, 2011

 

Bundestag Station. The probably most useless and least frequented line 55 stops here.

 

And that’s why nobody uses it. No direct connection to the rest of the undergrund system.

 

“When I grow up I’m going to be a bus!”

 

Not Berlin but close: Tropical Islands

 

Yes, that’s a crane down there. And not a toy one, a real crane!
