g+ood night, dear Googlinis. this one is from our chilling cold cemetery photowalk with +Andy Bitterer +Peter Jakobs and +Holger Steinmann last sunday...Photo: Hamburg's No.1 address for insanly stupid energy waste

Best thing about this picture is that you won't see my car standing in the parking prohibition ^^

btw this is a 3 by 2 panorama with a 85mm glass (cropped by 1.5) as I was too lazy to switch to a wideangle lens... ^^

Cemetery Ohlsdorf in Hamburg, Germany, is large, very large... If you walk for 2,5 hours I'll see just a tenth of it... great fun to discover all its secrets. Let's start... ^^

Shooten in Moorwerder on my odysee to find a great spot to capture this evenings sunset... failed. The deeper the sun was, the more desperated I become, the faster I drove... -.- this was the best I could get.

The tide was low, so I took my tripod and camera out after my long footwalk back to the car after catching some easter fire. Tired and exhausted I couldn't resist to catch the great moonlight over the river Elbe as a last act of photography this night.

From the yesterdays photowalk along river Elbe where I have captured some easter fires. They are a pagan custom to banish the ghosts of winter... Many people come together and party.

As I had the opportunity to catch yesterdays easter fires at river Elbe, I took the chance to capture this old ship wreck... The easter fires at the water side were a good light source, but I had some trouble with focussing ^^

The pagan custom of easter fires is a great tradition in Germany. To banish the ghosts of winter we make big fireplaces and party all night! This was taken during my yesterdays photowalk along the river Elbe, near Hamburg.

That old lady with the flower shop in Winterhude, Hamburg, has a sweet habit. Close to closing time she drops some leaves of flowers not sold over the pedwalk in front of her shop. This always look very lovely...
