This panorama includes many different signs of time: a hot-air balloon ascending into the sky draws light-tracks in the air; there is archaic fire as it could have been seen 10,000 years ago, and high-tech laser and LED-light from the modern era. And also the drummers try to keep their timing here.

For thousands of years midsummer night rituals have been celebrated, marking the change of time.

This is a place of such a ritual. In recent decades more and more people have attended this event in Teutoburger Wald, Germany. But this was the last one - from next year it will be forbidden to celebrate midsummer here. The forest management will not permit this anymore.

So this will perhaps be the end of time *g*

Caption in [alternate language]

Das Panorama umfasst viele verschiedene Zeichen der Zeit: ein Heißluftballon in den Himmel aufsteigend zieht Licht-Spuren in der Luft, es ist archaisch Brand, wie sie hätte gesehen vor 10.000 Jahren, und High-Tech-Laser-und LED-Licht der modernen Zeit. Und auch die Trommler versuchen, hier ihre Zeit.

Für Tausende von Jahren Midsummer Night Rituale wurden gefeiert, was die Veränderung der Zeit.

Dies ist ein Ort, der wie ein Ritual. In den letzten Jahrzehnten mehr und mehr Menschen haben an dieser Veranstaltung im Teutoburger Wald, Deutschland. Aber das war die letzte - ab dem nächsten Jahr wird es verboten, hier feiern Mittsommer. Die Bewirtschaftung der Wälder werden nicht zulassen, diese mehr.

So wird vielleicht das Ende der Zeit * g *
