Colors of fall and almost frozen fingers – photos

For weeks I wanted to take photos of fall, but somehow I didn’t get there. No time, no camera, it’s raining and so on. Everybody knows that when you make plans and always something comes in between.

Yesterday I didn’t have to work and because I had an appointment to play outside and then had to go through a park, I took photos with my mobile phone instead of my camera.

Because I like to walk – on average more than 5 miles a day after work – I didn’t realize at the beginning how cold it got outside after hours.

Only when my mobile phone was shaking while taking photos because my hands were  so cold did I go home.
I could save my almost frozen finger with a big cup of tea with lemon hihi

Here a few photos with the wonderful colors from the park.

If I look at the photos like this, I don’t even need my camera for landscape shots anymore. My new mobile phone takes great photos.

2019 – At my Happy Place. Photos

Like every year I was of course at my beach again this year.
And as always I took photos.
My holiday has been over for some time now. But I didn’t get to choose the photos (almost 1000) for my blog. At the moment I’m lying at home with a cold and it’s so boring that I used the time to sort my photos.

This photo was taken right on the first day. We didn’t even unpack the suitcases but went directly to the beach. ❤ ❤ ❤
Luckily the pockets of my shorts were empty, because the shorts were sprayed wet almost up to my butt 😀

Sunshine, waves, sand and the very special smell of the sea. What more could you ask for?

At the Beach 2019-03

If you are interested in maritime decoration like me, you have probably already seen pictures of handicrafts or furniture made of driftwood on the Internet.
Somehow I never paid attention to driftwood during the last years or it had already been taken away by collectors. I read that they are looking for driftwood on the beach very early in the morning.
Anyway, this year it was right in front of my feet.

A little further away, I saw those two logs. I was wondering which way they had gone. Are they coming from far away or just a few miles from the beach?

At the Beach 2019-07

I’ve noticed the little sticks before, when I was on vacation. I always thought they put sticks in the sand to protect the sea grass and the sand during storms. I once pulled on one, and no, they weren’t put in. I think they are roots of a plant.
Don’t ask which one. I don’t know anything about plants hehe

See that stone in the middle? These stones from the sea do not only look beautiful, they also feel totally good. They are wonderfully smooth and come in great colours.

The next photo looks like I arranged it. No, I didn’t. I found it just like that on the beach and found the combination perfect 🙂

At the Beach 2019-10

There is no sandy beach without tens of tracks. Footprints, or those of seagulls walking on the beach, or traces of the huge number of dogs walking there.
The dog that made this footprint was huge!!! I once put my shoe next to it to show what giant paws it had hihi So you can see the ratio, I have UK size 6.5 😀

At the Beach 2019-06

No, it wasn’t that dog. That day it was soooo hot outside. The dog was sitting in a bus stop and I had to photograph him. He was a bit shy if you came too close. So I stood in the heat instead of in the shadow at the bus stop. After all I don’t have any fur that makes you feel the temperature even more.

At the Beach 2019-04

Our last night of vacation. Shortly after sunset. See how calm the sea is? Quite the opposite to the photos during the day. The sound of the waves was very soft. Really relaxing. We passed people who recorded the sound. It looked very professional. Maybe they make a relaxing CD out of the recordings.

The colors in the photo are the same as in reality. Simply beautiful ❤

Beautiful Springtime – Photos

Finally it’s time again. You can throw your winter coat and thick sweater behind you and enjoy the sun and nature.

Of course don’t forget the camera and photograph the colours of spring.

All the photos above were taken in the park. The next one I found on my way home at a shop in a flower pot. I just liked the colors and had to photograph it 🙂

I hope my photos bring you some spring mood into the house ❤ ❤ ❤

 

I love fabric panel – today spring

In my last post, I showed a T-shirt with a dinosaur panel.

I have loved fabric panels since I discovered them a year and a half ago.

The panels for the door or also for the wall are made so fast and so simple. Meanwhile I make them in less than an hour hihi.

There you can see how many I made and gave away.

Most of the ones I sewed were with winter or christmas motives.

This is the second one I made for a colleague. Unfortunately, I forgot to photograph the first panel. She chose the panel and I sewed it.

I think this one with the cherry blossoms is beautiful, but it would not suit my interior.

Spring Panel 01

Spring Panel 02

The panel is not crooked as in the photo. I only used 2 hangers to hang it up, but there are 3 sewn hangers on the panel. So it fits and looks even 🙂

For all who also want to sew a panel, definitely take Vylene for inside. Then the panel is much more beautiful and not so thin.

 

Hoarfrost photos

Today I was at my best friend’s and my godchild’s to give them my Christmas presents. And of course to also get presents hihi
They live a few miles from me.
When I arrived at their place I saw that there was hoar frost everywhere on the trees and plants.

Unfortunately I didn’t have my camera with me but only my mobile phone to take photos. When I was back home I had hoped that I had hoarfrost too, so I could take better photos, but there was nothing there. Too bad.

There you can see what a few miles for a difference make. The air at the house of my friend is more humid because of the stream nearby, her house is a little more open with more wind. My house is in the middle of the city.

On the photos you can see what cold, humid air and wind create for works of art. It looks like every plant suddenly got needles.

Even cobwebs suddenly look like works of art

I would go there again to take real photos, but I saw in the garden after a few hours that the hoarfrost has changed, that the beautiful shape got lost.

Colors of fall, simply beautiful – Photos

Is summer really over?
If yes, then the weather doesn’t know that hehe
Last weekend it was so warm that I went out only with shirt and shorts to take photos.

I wanted to make the first fall photos in the sun, because there all colors shine and fall shows itself from its most beautiful side.

I took the first photo at a small tower. It was covered over and over with red leaves.

Fall 2018-7

Not only have I enjoyed the sunny day, also bees were still on the way

Fall 2018-1

Whether these are fall flowers, I don’t know. But the colors were simply fantastic.

Fall 2018-6

Fall 2018-3

But also some trees have their colourful leaves visible from afar

Fall 2018-2

I wonder why the leaves do not turn from green directly to brown …
Is it nature’s help to tell the animals that, for example, bears have to put on winter fat, or birds have to fly to warmer regions?
Or is it just for people like me so we can take great photos? Hihi

I love the sea (photos + film)

 

 

 

I love the sea.

No matter how the weather is, whether hot or cold, windy or rainy  I love to be at the sea.

Never before have I had the few days of vacation as needed as this summer.
In my last post I wrote that I had a construction site IN my apartment for 10 weeks.

Every year we went cycling by the sea, to a different place almost every day.

But not this time!

We took hours of walks by the sea, slept late, made no plans for the next day.
For a week we simply rested, enjoyed the sea, calmed our nerves.

Of course I took photos again. I think I have a million photos of the sea now, but still I take new photos every year hihi

I took this photo the first day. It was very cloudy and windy, perfect for kiting

Beach 2018 - 01

Here my favourite motive at the sea, waves that break

We passed the bike to walk up the stairs to the beach.
No, that wasn’t our usual way to the beach. We went that way for the photos. As you can see on the photos, the weather was perfect

Beach 2018 - 05

Here you can walk up the steps in the middle of the dunes.
The brown is not withered but a special form of the plant Ericaceae. This plant can be found all over the dunes because it can grow on sandy soil and thus prevents the sand from being blown away.

And now the best look of all when you’ve gone up all the steps. Down the stairs to the beach.
When I was standing on top, I made a little video with my mobile 🙂 The noise in the video is the wind and the sea

I hope you like the view too ❤ ❤ ❤
