The Alster Lake.
The picture above is a long exposure. The colours are not fake, they're only slightly enhanced due to the longer exposure. That yellowish glow is no product of photoshop though. The source of this almost mystical glow is the Port of Hamburg, approximately 5 miles from where this picture was taken.
Good news from the archaeology front! I'll be working in the field from the 14th of March - 8th of April. I don't know much about the excavation. All the information that has been revealed is that there's a megalithic grave and that we'll be a small team. The site is somewhere in the State of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, which - along with more than 1,000 archaeological sites - has some of northern Germany's most beautiful landscapes. I visited M.-V. twice and of the Federal States of Germany that I've visited so far, it's my favourite. To see the pictures taken on my last trip, click on the following links: #1 / #2
One of my fellow students and friends grew up in M.-V.; she told me I'll get to see thousands of stars on cloudness nights because there's no light pollution... so I'm definitely looking forward to the weekends.
I'm so happy that I'll get to work hard soon. It's a very rewarding job - every time you find something, you get excited like a boy unwrapping his birthday presents.
Have a great weekend!
