Blurred lights at the Central Railway Station, Stuttgart, Germany, 1986 When I was standing on the central station's plat­form, waiting for my train to to arrive, it was late in the evening and much too dark for a photo.  I then de­cided to deliberately blur the photo by moving the camera du­ring the time ex­posure. Flourescent tubes behind a pane of synthetic material (metal-reinforced), Stockholm, Sweden, 1998 On a sub­urban station in Stock­holm's north (Hässelby Strand), I saw this un­usual, iridescent light. It was cre­ated by floures­cent tubes that shone through a pane of a synthetic material (re­inforced with wires).  When I visited the place again in 2003, the panes had been replaced with ordinary glass. Fog whisps drifting over illuminated top of the pass, Island of Madeira, 2005 From the hotel, approx. 100 m below the pass, I could watch fog whisps drifting over the top of the pass and then dis­solve.  They appeared because clouds on the is­land's north side were pushed to the south side by the wind. The lamps illumi­nate the top of the pass (left) as well as a near­by levada (water canal, right). Some stars are faint­ly visible.
