Dieter Damschen - Full Moon

Dieter Damschen - Full Moon

Cranes are my main subject of photography. During their migration-period from september to november I mostly spend my time in northern Germany, on taking pictures at the resting places. With a little luck, there are two to three chances, in this period of time, to get them in front of full moon. This picture shows the cranes on their flight to their sleeping place in Linum, a small town close to Berlin, on the evening of 14th of october 2008. The next morning, there was a counting and the result was a number of more than 86.000 cranes, staying in this area.

Location: Germany
