fifty2:six – Winter Moment
It was getting cold this week. On yet another walk in the park, the seabirds were standing on the frozen sea. The photo is not my favorite style of photography. I like to do landscapes with impressive color. But since it’s typical German winter, I have to take what comes. But I like this photo, it is a very good composition in my mind. I’m pleased this week.
fifty2:four – Floodwater
The Rhine is spreading over the banks these days. Caused by heavy rains and melting snow, the level is at a 8 meter mark (avg. 3,51m, max. >10m). This also pushes the groundwater level. In the near areas, some grasslands are flooded with water, like this.
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.
