The dark, round rocks laying on the beach are framed by scraggy red rocks. These opposites give complement each other.

Take care have a great weekend!

WPC: rare

This week’s topic for the weekly photo challenge by “The Daily Post” is “rare”.

This tiny thing shaped like a cut-off fingernail is the biggest thing in the solar system: the sun itself.

I picked an image taken during a (partial) solar eclipse. I wrote a bit more about this event and the circumstances in a past post. You can also find some further images in that other post. Have a look!

Solar eclipses take part every few years, but they are visible only in a small area and this area changes from occurrence to occurrence. So, it’s a very rare event in every man’s live. And, many people will never seen one.

Take care have a great weekend!

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°C) and snow-less winter, we now have temperatures below 0°C 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!
