Training of the local Fire Department

Yesterday in the evening we watched the local young firemen during their training at the Rhine.
Each of the small towns in the Rheingau have their own fire department - all volunteers going through a tight training before they are accepted to the team.

P.S. Also check out Markus' webblog - he's about to become a professional firemen and posts photos of his training.

They have a really good display going on! My! Is that a rainbow?
Well the Germans have always been known for your strict discipline :)

Farbelhaft! I think that means something good in German. I like the composition, the vast openness of the back ground and off-centered fire truck.

I see a rainbow - Marieta of South Africa also just had a rainbow! I thought about being a fireman once but than I guess I still do contemplate it.

And good-looking brothers they are too! (Sorry, obligatory Dirty Old Lady comment); I suspect I'm old enough to be their mum. ;-)

fotoaddict - yes, I was lucky to capture that rainbow.

jasp - no, they didn't let me try but I also didn't ask. But that's alright. :)

gudl - it took him a whil but no he has ;).

deji77 - yep, it's a small rainbow. Thanks for the discipline comment ;).

comatose - thanks for commenting. And yes, Fabelhaft means something really good in German, so thanks for the compliment! :)

nicholas - do you have volunteer firemen in Honolulu as well? If you don't want to do it fulltime...

markus - hey, gudrun was already wondering if you missed it. Glad you like it. I'll check the Rheingau Echo to see if there's any news coverage on them as well (probably not as much as for you guys though ;) ). I'll add your link to the post if you don't mind.

lagatta - Looks like you have a thing for uniforms. ;) Just teasing you... :)
