The German island Langeoog is our holidayplace for many years. The island is part of the islandchain "Ostfriesische Inseln" in the Northsea. At the seaside there is a wonderful white beach which is formed by the storm-tides and looks different every year. At the south of the islands, between the islands and the country, the water is called tideland which is used every year from thousands of birds to brood. We were here at this island in every season. But in this summer, it was the first time with my KAP-equipment. I had to do one of my first experience with KAP. For this four pages "KAP-pictures at the German island Langeoog, summer 1999" I used 5 rolls with 36 pictures of film.
The pictures are sorted topical:
Part # 1: At the beach
Part # 2: Land winning at the German North sea
Part # 3: Stream outflow at the "Flinthörn"
Part # 4: Others

After dinner we went for a walk to the beach. At this evening it was good weather for KAPing. When the sun was standing low, me and my daughter Britta liftet the kite up in the air to take some pic´s from the beach-chairs. Because of the deep sun, the shadows were very long. The first two pictures are from an alitude of 15 meters, the right one from 30 m.
To take pictures from the surge, Jürgen and I had to go into
the water, because the wind was blowing exactly lengthways of the

In mostly every year the Langeoog island is beset by storm tides and many sand is rinsed by the sea. At the main-beach with the beach chairs, the sand was filled up with big pipelines and bulldozers. In another part of the beach, many years ago, people used to reduce the seapower with big fabric-tubes, filled with sand. This fabric-tubes couldn´t have been seen for some years, because they were under the sand. In the winter 1998 / 1999 the sand was rinsed by a big storm tide, so now you can see the fabric-tubes. They look a litte like strandet whales.

I like to be available for questions, suggestions or experience exchange.
I would be very pleased about an entry in my visitor's book.
