And It Was All Blue

Blue Sky
Memories from a long and neverending summer. Even it is actually autumn time, it would be a shame not to share those special moments and memories. All capturing on the baltic sea on a hot and pleasure late summer day. Water, Sun and a blue sky are perfect for a walk. Enjoy.

Returning

Beach
After a summer break, which was too long, I know. I say hello again after a timeout. Sometimes we all have to set our preferences new. And this is still to say I am back on my blog. My blog journey continues. Thanks a lot for your patience.

Go With The Flow

Go With The Flow
I can go
With the flow (ohohoho)
(I can go) Don’t say it doesn’t matter
with the flow
(Queens Of The Stone Age-Go With The Flow)

Life is better on the sea is a new photo series where I tried to capture the extra in the ordinary, always looking for light, water and special moments. Even in changeable times I use as much I can the chance to go out and in the best sense to follow the words by Mark Twain and to dream, explore and to discover. Perfect with the song line „Go With The Flow“. The series will continued.

Favorite Place

Down By The River
This week photo challenge calls for a favorite place, a viewpoint and finally a place that brings you joy. Living in a harbor city the answer is simple: the river elbe. It is Hamburg’s main waterway, the Elbe river connects the city to the North Sea. The best you can also enjoy the 23 kilometres of the Elbewanderweg path which leads from Wedel past the nature reserve Wittenberger Heide to Blankenese. I depicted the nature reserve Wittenberger Heide with his beautiful beach and nature.

Diese Woche heißt es in der Weekly Photo Challenge, zeig deinen Lieblingsort, einen Platz der einem Freude macht um abzuschalten und zu relaxen. Wenn man in einer Hafenstadt lebt ist die nächstliegendste Antwort: an der Elbe. Die Elbe ist der Hauptwasserweg und verbindet die Stadt bis hin zur Nordsee. Das schöne dabei ist u.a. der 23 Kilometer lange Ebwanderweg ab Wedel über das Naturreservat Wittenbergen bis zu Blankenese. Hier einige Bilder vom Naturreservat Wittenbergen mit seinem schönen Strand, der Natur und noch schöneren Aussichten.

Silent Night

Christmas 2014
Zeit für Stille und Besinnlichkeit. Wir brauchen in diesen Stunden besonders Ruhe und Besinnlichkeit zum Nachdenken und Innehalten. Dafür mache ich gern den Platz frei für den mittlerweile vierten „Stille Nacht“ Musik-Mix.

Mit Musik die manchmal melancholisch ist, mutig, ruhig und mit emotionaler Kraft. Musik für alle die die besondere Stimmung der Stille genießen und wieder durchatmen möchten. Musik wie gemacht für den Abend oder für die Nacht oder die frühen Morgenstunden und auch gern nach Weihnachten. Und mit Liedern die mich in diesem Jahr mit begleitet haben. Mit Musik von Archive, Tori Amos, John Cale, Portishead, Massive Attack und vielen anderen. Erinnern möchte ich auch an einige Künstler die nicht mehr leben: David Bowie, Leonard Cohen, Leon Russell, Sharon Jones, Mose Allison, Prince.

Take a moment of calm and peace. We need in these hours especially more silence in a noisy world. Follow the link (YouTube-Link) and you can listen to a special „Silent Night“ Music-Mix I created for the fourth time.

Mainly songs sometimes melancholic, nevertheless brave, quiet but with emotional power. For all who wants to enjoy the special mood of the silence. A mix perfect for the evening or night or for the wee small hours. And the music mix works well still after christmas.

Beside known Artist like Archive, Tori Amos, John Cale, Portishead, Massive Attack and many other more I still remember on artists who passed away in 2016: David Bowie, Leonard Cohen, Leon Russell, Sharon Jones, Mose Allison, Prince.

I wish you all a merry Christmas. Eat, drink and be merry if you can. After this year we deserve this.

In The Garden

Lily Black and White
To see and explore the beauty in the ordinary on normal places is one of my favourite in photography. Here is to share two findings captured in the garden in black and white.

How admirable!
to see lightning and not think
life is fleeting.
(Haiku by the 17th century Japanese master Matsuo Bashō)

Das Sehen und Entdecken vom Schönen im Alltag an normalen Plätzen ist eines meiner Lieblingsthemen in der Fotografie. Hier sind es zwei Gartenfundstücke, festgehalten in Schwarz/Weiß.

Twisted

Twisted Branches at sunset
Spring. Colours. Beautiful Light. An evening scene. The sun is setting behind the silhouette of twisted tree branches at sunset. The sky is not the limit, it is the view. Sometimes I really like the chaos…in photography. Taken a couple of days ago.

Frühling. Farben und wunderbares Licht. Eine Abendszene, wo die Sonne hinter der Silhouette von verdreht wirkenden Baumästen untergeht. Der Fantasie sind keine Grenzen gesetzt, unserem Blick, Sicht schon. Manchmal mag ich das Chaos…in der Fotografie. Aufgenommen wurde das Foto vor einigen Tagen.
