Update:

The answer is: it’s a kind of fan. The fan has a diameter of about 1,50m, that approximately 5 ft. It’s part of a huge turbine. Several layers of these turbine wheels are stacked one after another. In the image you can see the blades four of these wheels. In the foreground you can see another three of these wheels, but these are surrounds by a riveted metal bands.

I illuminated it with my speedlight, that was covered with a blue gel. The flash comes from the lower right side. Thus, each blade throws its shadow on the next blade, while the lights falls of to the background.

Thanks for taking part in the riddle and trying to guess the answer!

WPC: Half-Light

This week’s topic for the weekly photo challenge by “The Daily Post” is “Half-Light”610_1532-ec_w

Today’s post should be inspired by a poem, very or a song lyric.

My post and image are inspired by the poem “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening” by Robert Frost. The simpleness¬†of the scene Robert Frost¬†describes in his poem, impresses me. I came in touch with the poem during the movie “Telephone” with Charles Bronson, many years ago. Recently, I googled for it again and it still impresses me.

“Miles to go before I sleep” is the anchor for my image. Although, it’s ‘to drive’ nowadays and a car instead of a horse pulled wagon or sleigh.

Take care have a great weekend!

Ben told us, not to stick with the word literally. So, I picked this image taken two weeks ago in northern Norway, when the Aurora Borealis danced above me! What an experience!!!

This is one of my absolute favorites from that trip.

Take care have a great weekend!

Although, this image is nearly one year old, but the weather conditions are nearly the same. It’s taken right in front of our kitchen window.

After a quite warm (around 7-10¬įC) and snow-less winter, we now have temperatures below 0¬įC and a little bit of snow every other day.

Snowdrops and crocuses are already blooming, and even many daffodils are out.

Take care have a great weekend!

Albert Einstein once said, time is relative. And it depends on the situation, you’re in. When kissing a nice girl for five¬†minutes feels like lasting only a second, but sitting a second on a hot fire feels like being for hours in that place.

Take care have a great weekend!

The pillars, in the image above, are carrying a whole mountain. We’re in a coal mine, far below the surface of your planet. It’s a view in a machine, that scraps the coal from the wall and moves it in my direction for bringing it up. (The mine is already closed and now, it’s a museum)

Take care have a great weekend!

The daily post – spring

600_8753-e_wSpring is a wonderful season Рespecially for a photographer. All the flowers pop out of the ground, trees are blooming, the air is getting warmer, everything is colorful. In my last posts, I already showed many flowers. So I want to show something different today as my contribution to this weeks photo challenge at The Daily Post.600_8778-e_w

I took these¬†photos about two weeks ago. The ground is green and many small flowers are blooming. The trees already have leaves, but the aren’t too thick to hinder the sunlight to reach the ground. A few week later, the area will look very different.

Take care!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Focus

600_9071-e_wThis week’s photo challenge is about Focus.

Photographers are asked to focus on certain parts of their subject and leave the remaining parts in blur. In case they are unable to do it by using their camera, they are also allowed to realize their idea by using software.¬†I personally don’t like the idea of using software, to manipulate a photograph.

Here is my contribution:

The more a child grows, the more his or her parents become needless. They step back and finally they vanish away. The stronger a kid becomes, the weaker the parents have to become.

God bless, for all the kids.

Take care!

Daily Prompt: Moved to Tears

dsc_7665-e_wToday, the Daily Prompt ask photographers to show beauty. But, what is beauty? Is there a general definition, what is beautiful and what is ugly? Doesn’t this depend on the eye of the viewer?

My first intention was, to show a photo of a fledgling of an moorhen. These young birds are really ugly with their bald spots and ugly color combinations in skin, feather and pecker, but what would their mother describe them? Would she also say, their kids were ugly?

On the other hand: think of the fairy tale of the ugly duckling, told by Hans Christian Andersen. An duckling slipping in the wrong nest. Thus, being gray instead of yellow and bigger then his siblings. But, later in time, when he began to be an adult, the ugly duckling turned to be a pride swan.

Daily Prompt: Green-Eyed Monster

dsc_3029-ec_wShowing ‘green’, as “The Daily Post” asked for is quite easy for a nature photographer. Everywhere you can find green plants or even green animals.

Happy Saturday. Maybe you have some spare  time this weekend, to have a look at my other posts, too. Have fun.
