Tating — Peninsula Eiderstedt

Tating — Peninsula Eiderstedt

The St. Magnus church is widely visible slightly elevated above the small town of Tating in the middle of the peninsula Eiderstedt. Coming from the west, you drive straight on to the church tower. I have always admired the beautiful slender shaft of the church tower.
The predecessor of today’s church dates back to 1103. It is said to contain parts from the 12th and 13th centuries and has always been extended until the 17th century, most recently with the church tower.

Luckily I have many clouds on that day that create the necessary background for the dark painted church tower and bring a dramatic effect into the picture.

On a Saturday morning Astrid and myself went from Hamburg to the Wadden Sea near the island of Pellworm. We where invited by Wilfried Dunckel, who has organized a very special event. With a small motor wessel we where allowed to set foot on one of the great sands west of the North Frisian Islands.

Equipped with large tele‐lenses, we went out into the Wadden Sea to the Norderoogsand. Soon a large seal colony appeared on the dry sands.

The Olympic Swimming Pool of 1972. The daring architecture fascinates me again and again. The oblique standing post, on which the whole roof construction is suspended. In this infrared photograph, he stands out from the trees, the hall is a little hidden in the white foliage. In front of it lies the Great Olympian Lake, on which pedal boats make their way.
