Silhouette

I love these warm summer evenings in the field. No sounds disturbing the atmosphere, even the shutter click seems to be a bit annoying ;). Wish you a nice Whitsun weekend.

Across the canola field

The yellow stuff is blossoming. The ratio wheat to canola is about 1:10. Seems to be a profitable thing.

Little Chapel

Today I came across this little chapel. Outlined by a hedge and framed by oak trees, it’s a wonderful place to take a rest and think about stuff like the following quote.

For where God built a church, there the Devil would also build a chapel.
– Martin Luther

A path in the woods

One of these moments in the woods to think of why the environment has to be preserved.

Big Sky in Spring

Springtime. Though this years spring needs some time and warm temperatures and blue skys are still a bit rare at present, nevertheless nature’s awake and the fresh colors are back again. I love this season with all this fresh green of the new leafs and the growing gras.

That you may enjoy the work of God.

I wish you Wisdom to choose priorities…
For those things that really matter in life.

All good things that come to you.

I wish you Happiness and Joy…
And Blessings for the New Year.

I wish you the best of everything…
That you so well deserve.

HAPPY NEW YEAR FRIEND!

Full Moon

Stay tonight
We’ll watch the full moon rising
Hold on tight
The sky is breaking

A walk in the park

Down the autumn alley

Running like a horse between the trees
The ground beneath my feet
Gives me something to hold on to

Morning Beauty

Autumn dawns have a very special appeal. It needs some luck to catch the small time window where the light is not too strong and washed out by the usual haze but just bright enough to enlighten the scene in a warm manner which, in my region, can only be seen during fall.

Sadness flies on the wings of the morning and out of the heart of darkness comes the light.  ~Jean Giraudoux

Autumn Tree

In the fields again. Still very nice, nearly spring-like temperatures in this November. This time last year we’ve already had snow. If it would be up to me, this could last the whole winter ;).

A woodland in full color is awesome as a forest fire, in magnitude at least, but a single tree is like a dancing tongue of flame to warm the heart.  ~Hal Borland

In the woods

Another shot from the local autumnal forest. I think I could stand this forever. The flavor, the warm autumn light on my face, the silence, the rustle of the leafs when I walk. Ok, I don’t want to be to mawkish…  ;)

Everyone must take time to sit and watch the leaves turn.  ~Elizabeth Lawrence

In the evening

This year we are so lucky with the indian summer. Weather is great and as soon as the daily fog lifts, it’s nearly perfect. Today it was 18 degrees. That’s warmer than on some of this years midsummer days. OK, most of the daylight-time I have to spend in my office, but nevertheless, I hope this weather will last a few days longer. Makes me feel very positive and I may save it for the darker days, yet to come.

How beautifully leaves grow old.  How full of light and color are their last days.  ~John Burroughs

Fall

Autumn Forest

Fall in our local forest
There is a harmony in autumn, and a luster in its sky, which through the summer is not heard or seen, as if it could not be, as if it had not been! ~Percy Bysshe Shelley

Lizard on Driftwood

Another shot of my “sea monster”. In this one, at least I can imagine a lizard on top of the wood. No editing, the trees shape is exactly as I found it.

Most of us, I suppose, are a little nervous of the sea.  No matter what its smiles may be, we doubt its friendship.  ~H.M. Tomlinson

Fire And Haze

Technically I’m amazed what exposure ranges a DSLR nowadays can handle. Emotionally I won’t let go the leafs, what certainly happens soon – but luckily, and even more certain, they’ll come back next year.

Autumn, again

Finally, burning leafs are here again.
