Lights at the fair

As a little child, I was fascinated by funfairs. Even today the typical fun fair atmosphere – the scents of innumerable food stalls, the colours and the sounds of the rides – thrills me.
Just like in this picture of the spring fun fair in Krefeld, all rides are illuminated. Long-term exposure makes the colourful pattern visible.

Clifden Castle

One of the most original landscapes on the Irish isle can be found in Connemara. This region is situated in the far western part of den Country. Vast moorlands on one side and impressive mountains on the other side – the impressive nature of Connemara seems to be rugged and wild.
