Lightning!

October 2nd, 2016

Almost exactly 10 years ago I got my first DSLR camera and one of the very first images I took was lightning during a massive thunderstorm.

After that I never had the chance again – until a few days ago. The rain was not too bad and the sight was ideal.

I suspect the many little black spots result from the combination of rain with the extremely bright flash. If there was a dust issue it would not be so evenly distributed and it only occurred in this one picture.

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.

Millstätter See

October 2nd, 2010

On the way home from my stay in Hungary I spent one night at the Millstätter See (Lake Millstadt) in Austria.

Taken from my car. Luckily the road was completely deserted so I could stop at the best spot.

(Almost) full moon

Yes, I know there are millions of pictures of the moon all over the net but I can’t resist to add one of mine 🙂
