Dieter Damschen - Cranes At Night

Dieter Damschen - Cranes At Night

In October 2008 I had a permit to work in Linum, at Germanys largest sleeping place for cranes. I guess that about 40.000 of them rested at the place where my blind stood. To work at such a location means that you have to hide in the afternoon, before the cranes arrive, stay there the hole night and leave not until the last crane has left on the next morning. So I spent a lot of nights close to a huge number of cranes. On the 14th of October there was full moon and I spent the night in the blind. With only the light of the moon behind thick clouds I did a lot of pictures showing the cranes in their bedroom.
