    Sorry about the size of the pictures.
    I will reduce them but only next weekend
    (a weak from now):
    tomorrow morning I leave for another trip, for
    one week. (I returned from Germany last Monday,
    but now have to leave for another short trip:
    to Chile). The pictures are not made by me.
    They are made by my "cabin mate" Ecke who is
    the leftmost on
    and I am very impressed with his photographer abilities
    (and with his equipment). For example, in
    you can see SEPARATE DROPS of water in the brocken wave,
    that is more than you can see with your naked eye:-)
    You can also read the degrees on my sextant arc if you
    have a good computer screen:-)
    That's why I posted the pictures as they are.
    But I will certainly reduce them for fast downloads.
