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!

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

In this image you can see the sun and the moon covering most of the sun. I took this image last year during the partial eclipse. Unfortunately, the sky was covered the whole day. But, over a few minutes right at the maximum the clouds became thinner and gave me the opportunity to take this shot.

Take care have a great weekend!

WPC: Inspiration

The guys over at The Daily Post asked for our source of inspiration for this weeks photo challenge. That’s easy: Mother nature with all their natural beings, people as well as animals and of course all the different landscapes. In my blog you can find lots of photos documenting this. Thus, I picked one as an example.

Take care and handle our planet with care. We only have this one!!
