fifty2:three – CGN airport

Not all weeks are shiny, beautiful and eventful. This week was good, a lot of work to do. There was also a storm rolling over Germany this week. But anyway, the Mountain Bike season needs to be prepared. I see the view in the picture more often these days. It is the end of the runway of Cologne/Bonn airport, you can see the tower in the background. It is part of my training route. Quite interesting if you hear the turbines powering and smell the burned fuel. The day I took the photo was a two hour ride, 2mm rain, 2.8 degree Celsius. Not nice.

fifty2:two – Nutria on the run

Yeah, I’m a bit surprised that I have managed a second 52 photo project picture. The workload increased significantly this week, but I took a lot of pictures.

This week, I was on a walk with my wife and we visited a lake, where a nutria is living. This animal looks like a mix of the Biever and a rat, but very cute. Its origin was in South America, so it is not common here in Germany. The other animals in the lake somehow dislike it. In this case, it is chased by a swan. But it is just a beef between animals, nothing serious.

As many people have, I have picked some New Years resolutions. As I’m interested in photography but didn’t have shot much in the past two years, I want to do more. I want to do some projects and one of them is a 52-week project. If you’re not familiar with it, it means that I shoot and publish a picture every week for a year. This is just to stick with photography, get some creative mojo and practice the craft. So don’t expect awesome fine-art photos every week.

This is my first photo. The whole week here was mostly overcast, rainy and some winter storms (without snow). One day in the evening on a walk, the sun came out to say goodbye for the day.
