Baltic Autumn

Just arrived back home from a nice week at the coast. It was big fun as always: very good food, long walks on empty beaches and all aspects of weather conditions. From horizontal rain, storm at 8 beaufort to blue skies and vice versa, all in just 20 minutes ;-).

Beach scenes of Zingst Peninsula

There was a time I’d dip my feet
And it would roll off my skin
Now every time I get close to the edge
I’m scared of falling in

Cause I don’t want to be stranded again
On my own
When the tide comes in
And pulls me below the surface

Arcane

So you may enjoy each day in comfort.

I wish you the Love of friends and family…
And Peace within your heart.

I wish you the Beauty of nature…
That you may enjoy the work of God.

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

I wish you Generousity so you may share…
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!

Tranquility

On the shore at dawn.

“The more tranquil a man becomes, the greater is his success, his influence, his power for good. Calmness of mind is one of the beautiful jewels of wisdom.”
– James Allen

Cold Shore

Regardless of the temperatures, one of my favorite places in every season of the year. It’s difficult to frame the scene and trying to including the mood and atmosphere which has a great impact on me every time I visit this place. So I know that it won’t necessarily touch someone who has never been there. But  that’s the “problem” with most of my photos. ;)

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

Wish you a nice weekend!

Why do we love the sea?  It is because it has some potent power to make us think things we like to think.  ~Robert Henri

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.

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

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

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.

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

Autumn, again

Finally, burning leafs are here again.

Beachgrass

Some beach grass impressions.

“I have always loved the beach. The smell of the salty water, the wind in my face, the gentle roar of the waves all combine to create a sense of peace and calm.” – Unknown

Murmuring Stones

I like the slurping, murmuring sound that stones are making in the surge, with every wave a tiny step more on their way to grains of sand.

Lands End

Lands End on the western shore of Fehmarn. Unpeopled and with good weather conditions, this is a great, elemental place. Every time I visit this shore, it has changed. Trees are displanted by the elements of nature, or they’ve moved several feet away from their previous positions, but still rooted.

What I’m missing…

We just came back from a week on the coast and I’m already missing it, again. Strange hmm? Maybe it’s because I’m Aquarius, or, more likely, it’s because of the amount of tranquility- and serenity-effects these landscapes and the sea have on me. And the tasty food, and the landmarks, and some unforgettable moments, and…and…and…  Unfortunately, these effects didn’t last very long as soon as I’m back and caught in the daily treadmill. However, I remember a quote from Steve Jobs, saying

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”

Word! Period!

Embedded

Hydroforming on the beach. I like how the sand embeds the stones, shells and other stuff. And in addition, with every shore, the patterns and orders are changing.
