Seems like summer needed to come to an end before I’d finally come around to do an entry with my summer holiday pictures. We went to Norderney, a small German island in the North Sea, close to the border of The Netherlands. The landscape is stunningly beautiful, so I couldn’t resist shooting a bit of landscape and shooting it in colour. Had the negatives scanned by the lab, not really happy with the quality, but after the pictures have been sitting on my hard disk for weeks now, I decided to put them up without tinkering around too much. So no need to tell me the scanning quality sucks – I know!
Mudflats at low tide. It’s lovely to walk bare feet in the soft, squishy mud.
Grass covering the sand dunes.
Those wicker beach chairs are really great, especially when you need to sit out a sudden thunderstorm at the beach. Plus they look lovely!
In total we walked over 46km in those 5 days, and most of the time we didn’t realise we already were walking for hours. It’s really, really relaxing to walk along the beach and enjoy the nature, the sea, the noise of the waves, the smell of the sea, look for sea shells, take pictures…
Once you’ve walked past the swimming beaches you are more or less alone.
The neighbouring island (Baltrum) already coming up in the distance, as we walked to the easternmost part of Norderney.
The weather that day was changing constantly, so we had the most amazing light.
Ship-wreck at the eastern shore.
Amazing change of scenery on the inside of the island.
Possibly thousands of different hues of green.
Our last evening. Thunderstorm approaching. Lots of people were flying their kites on the beach.
On the ferry back. Neighbouring island Juist in the distance.
The ferries need to stick exactly to their routes, especially during low tide, as the danger of running onto a sandbank is very high. Buoys mark the right way.
