Das fotografisch reizvolle ist einmal mehr die kühle und raue Stimmung an der Nordsee, die alles einnimmt und verschluckt. Die Fotos sind an zwei unterschiedlichen Tagen entstanden. Die erste Serie Anfang Januar 2020, das Bild mit den etwas desillusionierten Surfern im späten Herbst 2019 jeweils bei Temperaturen im spürbar einstelligen Bereich.
[ #meermittwoch ]
🇫🇷 La mer est belle même aux antipodes, ici en Australie dans l'État de Victoria au sud-est de l'Australie.
🇬🇧 So far away, in distance and in time (that was twenty-three years ago for me)... in Australia, State of Victoria, for #MeerMittwoch
Sometimes we are like boats on the vast sea, navigating by sight, feeling alone, adrift, aimless.
Yet the sun will rise and set, its light guiding us, and the immense sea, so silent, is pregnant and teeming with life.
We are alive, we are life.
Wieder Mal ein #Meermittwoch an dem ich denke ich wäre besser in Dänemark geblieben
Twr Bach - Island of the Blessed, Anglesey
One of two lighthouses on the island a photo of the other one is on my profile as a pinned post.
I want to head back and get more pictures of this. I'm sure there are quite a few more compositions/angles that I missed on my rather hurried visit. It was late evening and I had a 7 mile round walk because of our van didn't fit under the height restriction. 🙄 Not a hardship as it's a wonderful location
For #MeerMittwoch just off the coast of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico a few weeks ago. As we were heading out from land this boat passed us on the way in, noticeable because of the pelicans and frigate birds following it in, thanks to the offerings of fish from one of the men aboard. You can see a pelican sitting on the boat's aft too.
Here is a sea view for #MeerMittwoch. This is St Ives, which lies in Cornwall, on the coast of the Celtic Sea. Originally a fishing port, the town is now mostly known as a tourist destination. However, over the years, it has also been home to a large number of artists, drawn to it by the special quality of the light - which I hope comes out a little in this shot.
Totally blew by my first anniversary on Mastodon and thought I'd update my pinned intro. Still retired techy, but oh how my favorite hashtags have evolved! Thanks to everyone who contributes.
Wangerooge Westturm Lighthouse in Purple Fog, 1988
I couldn't see most of the East-Frisian island of Wangerooge, when I had to visit it in November 1988...
The Westturm (west tower) lighthouse, part of a youth hostel, was built in 1932, it's historic predecessors destroyed by the sea.

This is Buckler's Hard, in Hampshire. It's hard to believe it now, but this was once the setting for a key shipyard for the Royal Navy.
Set on the banks of the Beaulieu River, with easy access to The Solent and the open sea, and a plentiful supply of wood from the nearby New Forest, it was an ideal location for the construction of large sailing ships. Three of the ships which took part in the Battle of Trafalgar were built here.
Wieder weckt ein Archivbild meines Lieblingsstrands in Dänemark meine Urlaubssehnsucht, den Steinstapel haben wir vor Jahren am Strand gesehen...
This is St Michael's Mount, in Mount's Bay, Cornwall. It's a famous tidal island that you can walk to at low tide, but once upon a time it was just a prominent rock in the middle of a forest. Its name in Cornish is 'Karrek Loos yn Koos', which translates as 'the grey rock in a wood'. Sometimes, after big storms, the remains of trees are still washed up on the Mount's Bay beaches.
Day 18 of #PhotOctober2023 - invisible Breton sky - this is a shot of the Bretagne, taken from 1000km away, so you can (not) see it right in the middle of the image, 5° below the horizon. But there is a glimpse of the Breton sky somewhere between the clouds and the sensor noise.
