In between…

I’ll just drop in quickly to wish you all a wonderful, sunny weekend! To me, it really is a weekend because after it I’ll have an actual week. Thank heavens! 😉

Through the Looking Glass

My friend has a glass sphere and she brought it with her. So I took the opportunity to try it out. The glass sphere is something of a toy for photographers, but the results are surprising…

Dragonfly NOT in Amber

Well, it was imprisoned in amber, if amber is anything like my picture vault, where many pictures are awaiting their release. But this one’s time has come. It’s rather rare that I do b/w fotos, but I read that photographers trying to develop their skills should take a certain amount of time and use it…

Dandelions

Earlier this year I set myself a goal: to get good pictures of Dandelions. I have once printed business cards with a wonderful macro of Dandelions with drops of dew or rain. Wonderful colours, just beautiful. I haven’t quite come up to that standard (yet!) but I did get a few nice shots. Here’s the…

Spooky

I didn’t see it myself until I had the picture on screen. And when I realized what I saw I thought it was kind of spooky. Imagine having something the size of your, let’s say, finger screwed in between your eyes. I hate ticks. In fact, I have renamed them. In my house they’re only…

I Heart

One of the pics I took in the early summer. I recently looked through all the files, all the pictures I took during this year and didn’t publish yet. There are still some I’m looking forward to sharing with you. A long winter lies ahead and maybe they’ll bring some colour into those grey days….

Extreme

Recently I was told that my photographs were ‚extreme‘. I was a little taken aback at that statement. Are they? It might be a matter of perspective. The talk happened in a local photographic shop. When I look around what they do is portrait and landscape. Although, in my view, the landscape photography is rather…

Purple Freesia

One of the first spring flowers I bought at the market. Love them! Eine der ersten Blumen, die ich diesen Frühling auf dem Markt gekauft habe. Ist sie nicht schön?

MakroMontag – Bye bye Winter!

It’s been a wonderful winter, at least between Christmas and the end of February! But that’s quite a lot, come to think of it! So this is my little Tribute to the Winter Season 2014 / 1025 Es war ein wirklich schöner Winter, zumindest zwischen Weihnachten und Mitte/Ende Februar! Aber das ist ja auch wirklich…

Guilty

Sorry, couldn’t resist 😉 Entschuldigung, ich konnte nicht widerstehen 😉

For the colour-starved

Such as me! I really love winter. I do, no questions asked. But I really do love all the seasons. I am so happy to live some place with four seasons. So naturally I love spring too. And this winter was so wonderful, that I am now happy to welcome spring. Now that colour starts…

Calling Daisy!

They were not the first this season. We did have wintry times, however in between those periods it was very warm and wet so some flowers and buds have been there all along. I just wasn’t in the spring-mood, still in winter-mood, so I overlooked them. But now, here they are 😉 Diese Gänseblümchen waren…

Good Excuses

This Challenge is a wonderful excuse to smuggle in some more Hydrangeas! Mea culpa 😉 Diese Challenge ist doch eine super Entschuldigung, noch ein paar Hortensien reinzuschmuggeln 😉

Rule of Thirds / Drittel-Regel

I LOVE IT! Seriously, the Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge ‚Rule of Thirds‘ is just perfect for me this week. The text describes just the kind of photography I love most and ever since I started this blog, I tried to achieve such pictures as obey the Rule of Thirds. I hardly ever photograph without…

Salbei-Gamander / Wood Sage

This is one of the little plants you hardly see. If you have seen them once, however, you will see them everywhere. And they are really interesting and always pretty. They are what I call ‚light catchers‘ because they have these beautifully structured petals that glow as soon as the sun hits them. So they…

Hydrangea – again and again

Okay, I definitely love them. You get it. Did you see that Hydrangea 3 is still your N° 1? So I’m guessing you don’t get too sick of them. One again, here she is. I’m in love with this picture myself! Sorry, but that’s the truth 😀 Okay, es ist amtlich: ich liebe Hortensien! Ihr…
