The story behind the image

Westerheversand Lighthouse is one of the genuine icons of the region. Situated on flat soil it is well visible even from far away. Its surroundings are very popular with migratory birds as they can do a safe stopover before they continue to their final destination in the Nordics.

When we were in St.-Peter-Ording early in Spring 2007, it was very cold. It did not feel like spring at all. Despite the cold temperatures we visited the lighthouse and were greeted by a clear blue sky which was perfect for a nice photo series.
