The sky over Worpswede

The sky over Worpswede
is a very special one. This discovered some painters over a hundred years ago and decided to live and work there from then on. The Weyerberg abuts there in the midst of moorland and meadows and always ensures a dramatic cloudscape. This photo was selected as the title for the Weingarten-Kalender 2017. The theme is “Magic Worpsweder Landscapes”.

A few years ago I had my studio directly at the harbor basin. In the evening I took a walk along the winter promenade with my neighbor, a painter. Just as we passed, an angler pulled a huge pike-perch out of the water, already the third of the evening. I used to like to go fishing myself and so I congratulated him on his successful catch. He was a Russian resettler and spoke no German. But my neighbor conversed with him with his hands and feet; until I could get my camera and scan it with his prey.
