    Bridge into the light

    We left Heceta Head lighthouse with an undecided feeling. The day before the lighthouse had been in a gorgeous light. A talk about the building and its history was not enlightening. The sunrise at Cape Creek came all of a sudden through fog from many directions. The bridge took a bath in this crepuscular light.

    Civilisation’s arrow

    My train was late. So I had enough time to take this image of a skyscraper at Mannheim Main Station. Since long I was starring at this triangular building with a real thin shape. On the digital image small corrections for the overhead wires had to be done. Turning the image to the right it became a civilisation’s arrow. An illusion ? Short after my shot the lights were turned off.

    Schwetzingen

    A walk through the castle gardens of Schwetzingen is always a highlight. On a warm and sunny autumn day everything is beautiful. Warmth and colors seem to be caressing you.

    The ancient ruler in the 18th century built a mosque to demonstrate his tolerance. Today inside was a cool light in contrast to the autumn colors outside.
