Lighthouses and endless expanses

The Westerheven lighthouse can only be reached on foot or by bike. It is about 1 km from the outer dike towards the lake and has become a popular photo motif thanks to its two symmetrical houses.

This post mainly shows it from the outer dike. It made sense to use different focal lengths (Nikkor 24-70 mm / f / 2.8 and Nikkor 70-200mm f / 2.8) and to create a small series of comparisons for the image size depending on the focal length

Sunset on the Curonian Spit

The wide deserted beaches on the Baltic Sea side of the Curonian Spit turn copper-red at sunset in April and create a slightly melancholic mood.

The Curonian Spit is a 98 km long peninsula on the north coast of the Samland. It begins in Lesnoi and ends at the Memeler Tief. Since 1945 the northern 52 km have belonged to Lithuania and the southern 46 km to the Russian Kaliningrad Oblast.

Kitesurfing in Barra

Portugal's north has impressive beaches near Aveiro. The flat wide sandy coast of Barra is ideal for kitesurfing and in good weather conditions you can see the surfers fly over the waves. The city has an impressive lighthouse. In the nearby town of Costa Nova, it is then more contemplative - the colorful houses of the side streets and the equally colorful but striped houses of the promenade have always been a magnet for tourists.
