Moon mission: planting a Christmas Tree

decembrie 6, 2013

Last night the weather channels issued warning calls for a major storm hitting Northern Europe. Strong winds were announced in Scotland (UK), Sweden, Denmark and particularly Holland. Nelson Mandela died. Maybe, this storm should take his name. The Belgium coast was to experience strong winds too. Last night children expected St. Nicholas… A flight took off south in stormy weather.

8pm. My work colleague, an enthusiast photographer, called to ask if I want to go to the sea to take pictures of the storm. I usually refuse nocturne escapades but on this day I had a good reason to turn an enormously regular evening into a storm chasing mission on the shores of Knokke – Zeebrugge, Belgium.

The pictures we took last night on the windy beaches remind me of images fed on the news of man on a moon mission. Our was „planting” an electric Christmas Tree.
