11-Jun-2000 -- Our second point that we've visited is located
close to Freiburg, in the south of Germany. The environment of the point has
a hilly character and after a look on the map you could see that there is no legal
access with the craft. So you can walk, not a very long direct distance, but,
because of the steepness you would have to use a very much longer way and
so we've decided to do it "half-legal," because there is a permission
for abutters or their visitors. And we are visitors aren’t we?
Due to the curves we approached and withdrawed permanently to the point,
always watching the information of the distance, delivered by the GPS-receiver
which has been held by my girlfriend on the back seat of our motorbike. The point
itself is located at the edge of a small forest, but inside and the meadow in front of it
is private property protected with an electrical fence so we’ve decide to shoot a
picture in a distance of 170 meters and this will give you a better impression than a
picture done inside of the forest, where you can regard one tree behind another one.
To determine the correct direction, I've used the compass, where I've adjusted
the angle, delivered by GPS, and then I took a picture in this direction. Thereby I had
to pay attention that there has been a sufficant distance between the compass and
the the influence of the electical field of the GPS-receiver.
Up to the next!
