Not night anymore, not day yet

Not night anymore, not day yet

I know! I posted a similar image not too long ago. But this one here - with the moon in it – I find much better! (Nice to see progress, huh!?). I shot it this morning, in this in-between kind of light. Not night anymore, but also not daylight yet. I find this almost the best time of the day! Do you agree?

the fog is alive!

The fog is alive!

Did you know that fog is a living organ?

This morning I was sitting in thick fog, not able to see the next door neighbour (which is of course not a bad thing), but it was cold and dark and wet. But then, from one second to the next, the fog decided to climb down 20 meter and the result of that you can see in the picture!

So it turned out that the fog decided to play games with me all day. Up a little [me in the fog] – down a little [me in the sun] – up a little [me in the fog], down a little…
Guess that is a fun way to spend a Sunday! ;-)

Good morning!

 

Good Morning

Rather nice what one gets to see if one gets up early enough! ;-)

Old Jungfrau

Well, today it seems to be completly foggy – now view what-so-ever.
So I decided to post an image of the Junfgrau I took a few days ago.

How do you Photobloggers out there generally think about posting an image which

New snow in the mountains!

New snow in the mountains!

Now look at this!

We got a new load of white fluffy virgin snow on the mountain tops last night!

It looks great, even though if this means that the summer 2013 has probably gone…

Did you have a good summer on the whole? Tell me about it!

A piece of chalet

A piece of chalet

Well, this is simply a piece of a weathered mountain chalet. Actually, the building is more of a hay barn rather than a chalet really. As you can tell, I love simple structurs and clear lines.

But then, I think, this image is only simple on its surface. If you dive in, you can see a whole load of patterns and lines.

Looking at these old huts, I often try to visualize the people who have built them, a few hundred years ago. Oh how different was the world back then! Through these old woods we get a glimps of these long forgotten times.

I imagine it was very v.e.r.y quiet in the world back then.

Nice!

Simply for my mum

“This one here is simply for my mum!
I have nothing to add today.”

“Do you?”

Farming with a view

 

Farming with a view

I drove up the mountain with my car. Had to quickly stop and get out to take this picture.
I guess farming is hard work. But perhaps it is just a bit easier having such a view! And the farmers get all this fresh air while working!

[Check one of my older posts here, I do firmly believe that all we need while working is AIR! Lots of it!]

I was rather impressed by his “office”!

Size matters!

Eiger, Mönch, Jungfrau

Mind you, the title referres to the people in the image, who do make look these mountains even more gigantic.

I read the other day one should always try to include people into a landscape image, in order to make the image more interesting.

“I do not agree.”

But in this case, I think, well, yes, there is that!

Again, if you can’t spot the people, click on the image to enlarge it.

“Size matters!”

Find the ibex!

Find the ibex

Did you find the ibex in the image?

(You might want to click on it to enlarge him…!)

It was one of these days… I went hiking, knowing it is going to be a very steep hike, so I only took my lightest lens (40 mm F2.8 panecake*) with me. Up up up all day long. Almost at the top of the mountain I encountered this fellow here!

“Hurray – an ibex!”

“But noooo, damn, I was looking all summer long to spot one – and now this, I only carry a 40 mm lens with me!”

So I took his portrait anyway. Does he not look like a tiny little mini ibex on this image? But trust me. In real, he was an impressive dude!

Do you know this problem, almost always bringing the wrong lens along with you?

Let’s talk about it!

Heidi

* this lens is – apart from not ideal for capturing ibexs – a wonderful toy to play around with!
