The Crescent Moon Of April 2018

In April 2018, I could catch the waxing crescent moon on three consecutive days, due to some high pressure weather – that hasn´t happened for almost four years. Going out three times on a row at night and chosing places to photograph by appearance and not by weather is a very nice treat. Enjoy!

Conjunction Of Moon & Venus, 20./21.04.2015

Some impressions of the recent conjunction of the crescent Moon and Venus. It is always helpful to know your places/where to go to and revisit them from time to time – even better with some long-awaited/longed for – high-pressure weather. Even spotted an eagle owl and lots of bats cruising around twilight. Enjoy!

Conjunction Of Crescent Moon, Venus & Mars, 20.02.2015

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. Click on the image to go full-screen (2560 px). Enjoy!

Back On Track

An almost 3-year long crusade of disorientation has finally came to an end. Just before X-mas 2014, I moved back to the area where I grew up, just a stones throw away from my parental home. I love traveling, but I also love being at home, doing some craft work (joiner) again and carrying for my children. I don´t have to run anymore, looking for something on the outside. If things are supposed to be, they will be. The key to happiness? Be thankful for what you already have…Here are some images from my new and yet so familiar playground. I love it being back home – back on track. And yes – I´m addicted to the Moon… Enjoy!
