Baltic Coast – Castle Gluecksburg during a rainy day

Day 141 of my 365 Photo Challenge.

Unfortunately, due to a heavy workload, I couldn’t continue posting for my 365 Photo Challenge. Now with the new lockdown in place, I have the time to catch up with the reposting!.
Right after my return from the Isle of Fehmarn, I had to repack my suitcase and headed up north again. This time, I went to the Baltic Coast in the vicinity of Flensburg. One of my first motifs was the Castle Gluecksburg, which has an adjacent lake next to it.
So, I had the chance to frame the castle with its reflection. The incoming rain provided a dark and dominant sky.

I hope you enjoy the image as I do!

The Isle of Fehmarn – Krummsteert-Sulsdorf Wiek

Day 135 of my 365 Photo Challenge.

Today was my second last day on the island of Fehmarn, and I paid another visit to the Krummsteert-Sulsdorf Wiek.

This time I photographed the base of the waterfowl reserve, which is located at the beginning of the protected area.

I was most fascinated by the play of clouds and the movements of the high reed, which swayed back and forth in the strong wind.

Lighthouse Marienleuchte, Isle of Fehmarn

Day 134 of my 365 Photo Challenge.

Today’s photo features the lighthouse Marienleuchte.
The lighthouse serves as a cross and orientation light for navigation in the Fehmarn Belt.

It is located about 1.3 kilometres southeast of the ferry station Puttgarden in the northeast of the island of Fehmarn.

The red-and-white striped reinforced concrete tower took over the functions of the neighbouring clinker brick building from 1831/32 in 1964.

Isle of Fehmarn – Coastal Salt Marshes

Day 132 of my 365 Photo Challenge.

I spent another day on the island of Fehmarn.

This time I visited the nature reserve Westmarkelsdorfer Huk, which is located in the north-east of Fehmarn.

Here you will find the ideal conditions for nature and landscape photography.

Especially the salt marshes found my attention,
These dry out almost entirely at low tide and cover the surface with a particular pattern.

Rana esculenta – Oh, look who’s watching

Day 129 of my 365 Photo Challenge

Another excursion to the local nature reserves on the island of Fehmarn

Today I discovered a pond full of frogs, which use the excellent weather conditions for extensive sunbathing.

In the beginning, it was not so easy to spot the little comrades on the water surface between all the plants. After I spotted the first one, it was a piece of cake!

It’s great to see how animals fit perfectly into their environment!

Alcedo atthis – Just a little Rest

Day 127 of my 365 Photo Challenge. After almost 3 weeks without internet access, I can now continue publishing my photos for my 365 Photo Challenge. Today’s picture shows a kingfisher, which I was able to photograph in the nature reserve „Wallnau“ on the island of Fehmarn. The little comrade used one of the water level poles for an extended rest. Obviously one of his daily routine on his forays through his territory. Hope you like the little one!
