Two technicians (and me) standing on a 120 meter high (393 ft) wind turbine in the Rhön mountain area, some 140 kms (87 mls) northeast of Frankfurt, May 15.

A coal train arrives at the Westhafen power plant before daybreak in Frankfurt, Feb. 17. The combined heat and power plant (CHP) is fired with coal imported from the U.S and from Russia. Germany’s shift to renewable power sources has brought the share of green electricity up to about 25% – but the rest of the energy mix has become even more heavily concentrated on coal, which now accounts for some 45% of power generation.
Lit by the full moon, a stork stands in its nest in front of wind turbines near Schoeneck, just north of Frankfurt, shortly after midnight April 16.
Lights are still on in many offices at Frankfurt’s financial district, Jan.29. I have no idea if people are still working this late, pretend to be working or if they just forgot to switch off the lights.
