Hi there! Hope you have a great sunday! Today I decided to post this picture to give you the imagination about the Lusatian Lakeland in Germany Iam talking about to you all the time. It is not the best one but you can see the contrast between old and new at it´s best.
Yesterday I posted a picture from the once conveyor bridge all known here as F60 („The lying Eiffeltower of the Lausitz“) in Lichterfeld, Germany. This conveyor bridge won the brown coal in the past. There are some of them here in the area. But this is like a memorial now.
On this picture you can see another active strip mining and in the background the flooded strip minings and now beautiful lakes. In german it means (Abraum)Förderbrücke - conveyor bridge (F60 ist the production-model) and the working area is Braunkohlerevier.
Had a great flight with my friend Norbert in a Catana a glider (or sailplane) and it was fantastic to see this amazing landscape and the different colours of the water from the air. For all new followers here my standard explanation (🙈😂) about this special landscape here in Germany, near Berlin:
The Lusatian Lake District here in Brandenburg in Germany: The scarred landscape (scarred from lignite mining in the past and now rehabilitation of the area and structural transformation in a lakeland) is becoming a navigable lake network. The abandoned lignite mines will be flooded step by step with water to artificial lakes with around 30 lakes. 7.000 hectares is being formed through the linking-up of 10 lakes by means of navigable channels. The Senftenberger See is one lake of them and with 1300 ha the biggest one of artificial created lake in Germany.
