Westerhever Lighthouse

Andre, Black And White Photography, Photography

This is a quite iconic lighthouse at the German north-sea coast in the state of Schleswig-Holstein. It’s used in quite a lot of commercials. When used in commercials, there is usually not so much landscape in the frame.

Nowadays, the two houses beside the lighthouse are used for nature preservation purposes. Huge portions of the Wadden Sea are part of the National Park German Wadden Sea, founded in 1985. That National Park covers the costs of the North Sea of the German states Lower Saxony, Hamburg (since 2011), and Schleswig-Holstein and continues in Denmark (since 2014).

This is one of the images, where it’s hard to decide if the image is monochrome or in color. No sky, no green plants, early no light, dark trunks, an oystercatcher is also mainly black and white. Only the legs, the bill and the eyes of an oystercatcher are of intense red color.
