Conjunction of the Crescent Moon, Venus (left) and Mars (top left), 20.02.2015. The sky cleared up just in time to witness this celestial spectacle, after almost ten days of fog due to the typical wintry inversion weather. The image shows the church of St.Andreas of my hometown Pürkwang, Lower Bavaria, Germany, which was built 1462 with its 46 m high bell-tower. The scene is taken of seven vertical images at nautical twilight , stitched using Hugin, stars done with Gimp and doing some adjustments with Lightroom.

Again, today is a day which marks a milestone in my life. After being self employed for more than 16 years as a cabinet-maker/joiner, I finally have sold my house, the workshop and the studio. Today we will start our ´U-Haul`, which means my family and I are moving into a city called Landshut. Rated among the top worth living cities in Germany, it´s a pretty good spot to start a new part of my life with. I´m not sure where this road will lead me to; but I deeply know that it is the right road/track/decision – ask me in about 5 years from now on again;)! It´s a grey, overcast, snowy day today, but some of my Dawn&Dusk images will hopefully bring back the colors into life . All images are taken around my “old” home turf. Enjoy!
