Sylt – Leuchtfeuer Ostellenbogen
the mysterious box
the wooden path to halo beach
We had the luck to see a full halo the other day. It was so beautiful …

Attention: strong breeze!
Taking this photo was an exciting challenge because the wind was blowing with a force of about 6 (40-50 km/h or 25-31 mph). I used a ND filter here to achieve an exposure time of a few seconds to capture the movement of the flag. When I set up the tripod I realized that it was vibrating a little bit because of the strong breeze. I wasn’t sure if the photos would get really sharp. But, it seems like it worked quite well. Thanks to Manfrotto! Great stuff!
Btw, the sand was moving very fast as well. After this shot my shoes were completely covered with sand. 🙂

A long exposure taken at the beach of …. hmm …. somewhere on the island called Sylt. Close to Westerland if I remember correctly.
