Hello,

finally we get to the coast.


here we go


the coast - water was 5° C and air 10° C - no swimming


the coast


I love the forests more - those are 500 meters inland from the coast



apple tree with a pond




yes, samples collected


snakes love it here - this was taken at 70 mm - I got pretty close to it


a crop of the above water snake - natrix natrix. While collecting samples I disturbed them often. Some disappeared into the water and some into the forsest. This one was pursued by me for 10 mins before I could not follow any more.


what secrets might we discover here?


myself with my trusted Zeiss KF2 - checking samples in the hotel room


Tomorrow its back home - and I have 20 samples from moores, swamps and ponds.

Best regards
Ecki

Nice landscapes there, Ecki, make me wanna grab my hiking boots, or my bike! You were lucky with the good weather up here, no rain like in the south.
It would be interesting to know what area is shown. Looks like MeckPom, on Zingst/Darß or Rügen perhaps?

And boy Surprised , this last picture of your hotel room clearly tells us that you are not preferring to travel with light gear. Smile Wink

Greetings,
Betty

P.S. But I think with the number (not more than 4 per day in here) and size (should be < 200 KB) of some of your pictures you've violated the posting guidelines quite a bit.

Hello Betty,

Sorry that I forgot to mention it - yes, it is Zingst and the Dars we were visiting.

Best regards
Ecki

The files are definitely oversize.

The 4 per day sent me head-scratching. Four is what I remember, but I went looking to verify just because I'm such a worry-wart, and I couldn't find it!

Apparently that limit got erased many months ago when we reworked the forum descriptions.

I just now added it back in, so now it's official again: 4 images per day in the Favorite Locations forum.

It's odd I didn't see this earlier. Must have been one of those cases where I exited my browser at the wrong time and lost some of the "new posts" flags.

But there is an upside: it's now so many days later that the issue is moot!

Thanks for speaking up about the limits, Betty.

And Ecki, thanks for the many photos of an attractive and interesting place. I hope all your equipment made it home OK!

Rik,

sorry for violating those rules. I noticed my mistake just after I posted everything. I did send Danny a message, pleading guilty and asking for advise, but it seems he hasn't read it yet.

My microscopes had a safe trip home. I have the original carrying case from Zeiss for the KF2. This protects the microscope very well and it takes only 2 minutes to set up the KF2 for operation.

regards
Ecki

Very interesting photos of a worthy trip to a place that many of us will never have a chance to see! And of course, any photos of snakes are good photos!

I hope Danny is doing all right. Anyone have any word from him recently?

Yes, Danny's fine. He just has some other things to deal with.

Look on the bright side -- we've been doing so well without him that he trusts us to keep going by ourselves! Very Happy

Ecki, this is one of those "no harm, no foul" situations. Your two threads are longer than the forum would be willing to see on a regular basis, but in the broad scheme of things they're not causing any problem that's worth taking time and trouble to fix. I'm glad you had a good trip. Post out some pictures of what you brought back. Very Happy
