Egrets

On my way back from Hannover to Berlin I always stop at Ilkerbruch. This time I had very low sun shining directly in my face (and lense…) so I had edgelight and a very hard contrast which worked quite well for this Great Egret (Ardea alba).  

Good Evening

A very cold evening at the former Tempelhofer Airfield. Swarms of hooded crow came together to feed, sleep and enjoying the very last shafts of sunlight. Roughly 250 birds come together to fill the trees around.

Gulls

Seagulls on the Tegeler Lake in Berlin Tempelhof. The first pictures with my new lense, but I had really bad lightning so I needed high ISO and the overall situation is rather boring.                      

Geminiden

Spontaneous decision for the win! Decided with friends on Sunday late evening to drive to the “Skypark” near Gülpe. One of Germanys darkest places to watch the geminides. I really have little experience with star photography, but apart from that it was really a great experience.

Kestrel

Kestrel tercel on the former airfield Berlin Tempelhof. We had rather bad weather and Light, but I like the shot. This guy was really trusting for a wild bird of prey. And as a bonus “his wife” ;)
