Evening mood in the moor

At the time of the crane migration, up to 20,000 cranes had already been counted as overnight stays in the Tister Moor in Lower Saxony, Germany. One evening before sunset I drove to the moor, but I wasn’t alone by far. The parking lot was nearly overcrowded and I only got a free parking place at the outermost end. A hiking trail leads over 1.5 km to two observation towers on the moor landscape. I had climbed the higher tower and had found at first only in the second row a place to the view. Later the tower should have been filled up into the sixth row with crane observers.

But I could make this picture when only 4 persons were still on the tower and I had free view in direction west. I love these light moods, when the purple sky color is reflected on the ground, as here on the flooded moorland. I had something comparable in Hamburg once, when I had photographed the Dockland after a rain shower.
