Zoo Bremerhaven (Part 1; Teaser)

The Zoo in Bremerhaven is the (to my knoledge) the smallest zoo in germany (maybe in europe). It is situated next to the estuary of the river weser and the north sea and it focuses on animals that live in or near the sea and/or northern latitudes. Its definitely worth a visit if you are in or near bremerhaven. More pictures will follow! ­čÖé

Neowise C/2020 F3

As said in my last post: Here are two pictures of the Comet, taken in Bremen.

You can see both tails of the comet, the dust-tail and the blue gas-tail.

It gets even more amazing, as the apparent magnitude of the Comet at that time was about 3.5mag to 4.0mag and it was nearly invisible with the naked eye. Even with my 140mm Newton it was barely visible. Modern Cameras (and stackingsoftware) are just amazing!

The photos were taken by Lorenz (https://www.instagram.com/breuerlorenz/?hl=en) and Marius, friends of mine with whom i went stargazing (and took photos) in Oberneuland, Bremen. Thanks for allowing me to publish them!

As a bonus, he took a nice picture of the Milkyway, shown below:

You can see the pleiades on the right hand side of the tree, as well as the beginning of dawn (even if he took the photo around 3am (GMT+2) .

Up on the right hand side you can even see the andromeda galaxy (if you know where to look)!

DIE NR1 IM NORDEN

I took this photo last year while swimming at a Lake in Bremen.

It translates to “No 1 in the north” and when you look closely, you can see the “Werder Bremen” logo. Fitting for this season, i think…

Beauty of Spring

I took this picture while walking on a daytrip with my girlfriend this spring. There is not much to say about it – i thought (or rather she thought) it would be a nice motive. In my opinion she was right.

The unknown path

Many of my friends know that one of my hobbies is analogue photography.

I took the following picture last summer at the North sea.

I called it “The unknown path” for (not complete) obvious reasons.

At first I wanted to call it “Into the unknown” but that would have suggested a moving object. As one can see, both ships arent moving, but the path they’ll take is unknown (and be it just “up” with the tide).

As this is my first picture-post some explaination in general:

I normally take pictures with my analogue equipment and i dont use (software) filters.

The only “filter” i commonly use is the repair-tool for correcting artifacts from scanning the negatives. I use that tool very conservatively and if in doubt i will leave an error in the picture before deleting details of the picture by accident. However – I am too tired right now to explain more; i will post more pictures in the coming days or so – have fun.

P.S.: I plan to create a “Gallery-Site” in WordPress; probably with those pictures all in one place. But thats for my future self as well.
