The Isle of Fehmarn – Time to say Goodby to the Baltic Sea

Day 139 of my 365 Photo Challenge.

Now it is time to say goodbye to Fehmarn.

My two weeks are now over, and tomorrow I start my journey home to Bavaria.

For the last time, I visited the lighthouse Flügge at the southern beach of Fehmarn.

I was lucky, just as I was about to take the picture, a flock of wild geese passed the lighthouse. This gave the composition that specific something.

You have to be lucky!

The Isle of Fehmarn – Impression from the Northern Coast

Day 137 of my 365 Photo Challenge.

This time, another Sea view of the Isle of Fehmarn.

For this image, I visited the northern coast of Fehmarn. Long and empty beaches were inviting for endless walks.

There, you can feel the flair of the Baltic coastal landscapes, particularly intensively.

I especially liked the in the wind moving grass of the beach, which contributed to the idyllic atmosphere.

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.

Lighthouse Fluegge – Isle of Fehmarn

Day 133 of my 365 Photo Challenge.

The image features the Lighthouse „Fluegge“, located in the southwest of the island Fehmarn.
I photographed the Lighthouse during a sudden incoming rain shower, from a position approx 1,5km away from it.

The Lighthouse was opened in 1872.
After 44 years it was replaced in 1975 by a new tower. The tower was clad with red and white fibre cement panels due to damage to the outer masonry.

It has an octagonal shape and was built with yellow bricks. Its height is 37,5 meters, and it is equipped with a red lantern.

In the years 2009 to 2011, it was completely renovated. Since 2003 the Lighthouse has been a protected monument.
