Summer Floods & Rain

Summer Floods & Rain

During the summer floods at June 26th at the lighthouse Westerhever Sand we had a lot of rain. It was exciting to experience the flooding of the salt meadows around the lighthouse, but a drama for the birds because many of the them were still breeding in the salt meadows. I had taken all the images in black and white images to capture the dramatic atmosphere of the situation.

Here, where I could still be almost dry at the time of capturing the image, it was 30 minutes later almost 40 cm under water. How beautiful the structure of the bricks of the way is visible and how the storm is captured with the moving grass! read more and write a comment …

It was my personal highlight of bird photography during the workshop weekend with Martin Stock. We just had a short break at the backside of the Eider Barrage, when we found this pair of Redshanks together with their fledgling searching for feed in the shallow bank of the river Eider. I could get 4–5m to the birds to capture this fantastic series of them. read more and write a comment …

At the beginning of the workshop with Martin Stock we went into the salt meadows to get into contact with the environment around the lighthouse Westerhever Sand. Just after we left the main path to the lighthouse the nature showed us a rather rare guest in the salt meadows near Westerhever: a young bird of the spoonbills (easy to recognize).
