I’m back home in Nuremberg, after an eventless, smooth flight across the Northern Atlantic. The 9h 30 min flight from PDX to AMS (I was able to rebook to the direct flight instead going via Seattle) was long enough to watch two movies (“12 Strong” and “The Post”), enjoy a wood plank grilled salmon dinner and get in some sleep before landing in Amsterdam. There I had only 60 minutes connection time, so I was back home in time for a late family breakfast. My long travel back at least helped my to unwind after a hard work week in Portland.
The photo above, taken with my iPhone somewhere from high above the North Sea, was actually the only one I got out of this business trip. The OM-D didn’t even leave her bag all week (is a camera a she??). The scenery with the wind park and the passing boat visually attracted me. The soft color gradient from dark to light blue, the lines of the offshore wind mills, the 90 degree angled line of the passing ship (the pic would have made a great entry to this week’s WPC challenge). So I took my phone and clicked.
It made me feel good.
It was my visual push-up of the day.
Have an awesome and creative weekend!
Thanks, your feedback is much appreciated! Marcus
The colors and composition are very soothing. I can see why this was a great pick me up. I’m glad you were able to rebook a direct flight. I’m a week and a half out from my flights. If I can capture a fraction of the great photos in-flight you capture, I’ll be happy. 🙂
Thanks, Amy, much appreciated! Wish you a window seat and some great opportunities for aerial photos! Marcus

Thanks, Sue, highly appreciated! Marcus
Marcus, I am glad that you are back home and finally would have a nice rest.
I love this photo very much, it’s pure minimalism and so beautiful!!! Whatever you use and where you are your photographs always come out amazing.
Wish you a nice and peaceful weekend.
Thank you so much for your kind words, Kaya. They always make me smile :-)!
I would love to see them assemble those big sea windmills, they fascinate me, we have lots off the sea on the north Norfolk coast. Glad you had a smooth trip back, enjoy your time with your family 🙂 Lynne
Thanks, Lynne 🙂
Yes a camera is most definitely a she, a real lady in my opinion. Sometimes even a diva 😉
Enjoy your weekend back home!
