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

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!
