My camera seems to have become an extension of my amateur photographer eyes! All photos prior to 2007 are scanned and were taken with a Fuji camera.

Wissower Klinken, Isle of Rügen, Germany, 2001

Old scanned photo.
Special post for Vogon Poet today! These iconic white chalk cliffs, called the Wissower Klinken, painted by the genius Caspar David Friedrich are no more. They fell into the Baltic sea in 2005. See more photos here.

As seen by the master C. David Friedrich

What a surprise! Thank you very much, I really appreciate this image. It is sad that the cliffs are no more, you caught them just in time.
