Summertime – fruits time (photos)

One thing of summertime I love are the bushes and trees full of fruits.

It is also the time I eat a lot of fruits.Not because its healthy, but because I want to.

Saturday I went to a supermarket and came back with lots of fruits.

The colors, the smell of them – overwhelming ❀

I couldnt resist to make photos πŸ˜€

Beaches and ports – Photos

I love being on a beach!

The smell of the ocean, the sound of the waves, the crying of the seagulls, the wind in my hair – nothing calms me down more then this.

When getting on a beach it is like coming home . ❀

I hope this photos shows the happiness I feel when being there.

How a duckling found a Star – A Photo Story

Like every spring I went on  a duckling hunt with my camera. I just love these cuties ❀

But just showing the photos is a little boring.

I decided to write a little story with my photos πŸ™‚

Besides the star I added and cutting the photos I didnt change them. The animals really made this “faces” LOL . This photos longed for a story

Meet duckling Belle and her brothers

_MG_8843

One day Belle’s brothers tried to play a trick with their baby sister. They told her a star has fallen into their pool last night.

_MG_8866

A STAR? Really?” Belle asked excited and went to the pool. She wanted to see the star.

_MG_8990

Maybe the water was too dirty or it was a really small star Belle couldnt see the star and jumped in the pool.

_MG_8886Β 

Lets see how long she will look for the non-existing star” said one of her brothers and they went after Belle

_MG_8834

Two of her brothers loughed so hard they couldnt even stay anymore.

_MG_9049

Poor Belle swum the pool one – two – three times but couldnt find the star.

She even asked her neighbor.

A star? In our pool?” asked Duck Smitty.

_MG_8738

_MG_8766

She and her babies searched the pool too.

_MG_9058

When Belle lost all hope to find the star and startet to get out of the pool she saw something sparkled in the water.

_MG_9159

Belle dove to the bottom of the pool and there it was: her STAR

This little star has seen how sad Belle has been and went to earth to help her

_MG_9034-1

Belle was so proud to have found the star. She swum around the pool to show everyone her star

_MG_9010

Her brothers couldnt believe what they have seen andΒ  jumped in the pool to find a star of their own.

_MG_9201

Belle never managed to get out of the pool with one try only. But now with the star she could jump high like never before.

_MG_9202

_MG_9199

Belle’s brothers were not this lucky. They didnt even had enough energy to get right out of the pool.

_MG_8898

Β And Daddy’s dressing downΒ  finished them off.

_MG_8786

Duck Smitty’s babies were so tired after searchung the star for Belle they tried to sleep in the pool.

_MG_8759

Β But her Mom put them right there were sleepy babies has to be – out of the water and close to Mom and Dad.

_MG_9101

BelleΒ  walked around with her star for all to see and was the happiest duck on earth.

End of Belle’s story!

Stunning colors of spring – photos

Yesterday I posted forest photos.

But we went to a park too. Spring has the most amazing colors.

Those colors promise you the winter is over, temperatures are getting warmer and summer isnt this far away anymore ❀

Look at this amazing colors πŸ™‚

Two weeks ago most of this places has been earthy because of the lack of flowers or blossoms

_MG_8556

It is alway amazing to see how nature takes back what men took away from her. See this old stone wall?Β  It was full of plants and moss.

A walk through a forest – photos

Today was a day with lots and lots of calories hihi

My godchild Sonja invited us to a restaurant. ❀ ❀ ❀

We ate way to much because the food has been yummy yummy.

Sonja and I decided to make a walk to lose some of the calories πŸ˜€

We took our cameras and went to the next forest to make a few photos.

You wont believe what I’ve seen first on my way. An old rusty barrel!

How could someone throw away something like this in a forest? You cant even drive on this dirt road because its to narrow

_MG_8499

The next photos are more of what to expect to see in a forest

nothing is wasted

_MG_8537

_MG_8529

Spring is in the air ….. (photos)

Sunday is simply my perfect day.

You dont have to go to work, no alarm clock in the morning, you can be lazy or being creative. Its my decision hehe

Today has been a sunny day. Cold, windy, but the first sun beams tempted me to take my camera and go to my favorite park ❀

what is spring without its typical flowers?

Blood Moon September 27/28 2015 (photo)

Usually I would have overslept the blood moon.

Because I didn’t felt well and couldn’t sleep I read the news on the internet. I read about a blood moon and took a look out of my window.

The blood moon has been just at the beginning. I took my camera and made a few photos. I tried different iso settings. This photo is made with iso 6400. I didn’t used a tripod, but had a teleconverter to expand to 400mm. (I need a better teleconverter!!! Mine is a cheap no-name one )

Here is the photo with my first blood moon πŸ™‚ The beginning of it I put on the left side. I think with a tripod and a better teleconverter the moon had been more sharp. But hey, I went from bed to taking photos hehe
