Really nice how you isolated the two love birds. I like the big door behind them and the lions watching them kind of protecting them - maybe. A very good choice for the TOM and cool find from your archives.


Buin (2019-02-17):

Jean-Marc, this is winter as it should be - and a way to work as well ;-)
All photos show "frost" in an attractive way and I would like to have a walk there in the dry cold. The large view is a feast for the eyes - and even for soul. What a splendour! The "lake" of cold air in background adds a mysterious mood to the scenery. Here one once again can see that getting up early is an advantage ... ;-)
Greetings from sunny Westphalia at +15°C during the day - but still with frost in the nights!

Buin (2019-02-17):

Yes Gunnar, this really looks like spring - especially because of the wonderful light and of course because of the catkins. Here they still are totally closed. The swung road in the main photo is an attractive feature in the picture as the red ship's bow is.
However, it's still February and winter surely isn't that far away.
Greetings from sunny Siegen - with still very frosty nights!

Hi Frank,

In summer 2007 was the first time we visited this beautiful area and all damages Kirill had caused in January were very indeed very extensive and visible. These pictures show another aspect of the situation nearly a year later, the ice provide another dimension, very beautiful.

Best regards
Gunnar

Always much appreciated :)

BabaCam (2019-02-15):

A little extra tour before work :-) I sometimes do the same staying longer in the tram or train and walk back finding new side roads. Always a pleasure especially with the spring-like weather. The LV is wonderful with its foggy parts - a must-open. Quite some activity in the sky in some of the images. Landing in the Jura Swiss side, you have to be very careful about the Moulhouse Airport not flying into their airspace. It is all very tight. Luckily there is the GPS system that helps.

Have a lovely weekend, the weather looks promising yet a challenge on the ski pists with many many folks.

Buin (2019-02-14):

Hallo John!
I know about the difficulties of taking photos like this one. You managed to render the magnificence of this artwork in a wonderful way. The exposure of window and statue is perfect. Your "tripod" obviously was a pew or something like this ... ;-)
Greetings!
Frank

Current discussion:

mortijo (2019/02/14 21:30:17): Indeed, I used the pew to stabilise the camera. PP was used for the statue.

Bonjour Claude!
What an inventive contribution to our theme of February! This one goes straight to my TOM choices. You have an eye for scenes like this one ...
Greetings from an a bit springlike Westphalia!
Frank


Buin (2019-02-14):

John, this is an interesting reportage photo - from a point of view I never have had. A good combination of picture and note - and a special thank you for the stunning satellite view!
The backlight causes a great effect here.
Greetings from Westphalia!
Frank

Current discussion:

mortijo (2019/02/14 21:27:47): Frank, thank you for commenting. It is quite exciting to pass this stair case with a boat. The oval form of the locks is problematic for mooring.

John

Buin (2019-02-14):

Hallo Korkut!
What a wonderful contribution to our theme of February! These two really seem to be oblivious of all around them - and the b/w version underlines this in a special way.
Greetings from an a bit springlike Germany!
Frank


Buin (2019-02-14):

Hallo Barbara!
These are much more than photos ...
You caught a fascinating atmosphere in both pictures and the viewer literally can feel the particularity, the sacredness, of this place. In both pictures the wonderful light for me is THE photographic feature. Really wonderful!
Greetings from an a bit springlike Westphalia - with still frosty nights!
Frank


Buin (2019-02-14):

Hallo John!
This looks like a work of modern art. Nature's inventiveness really is endless and everything has its special meaning, its purpose. The technical quality of the picture is fantastic and it's a real please to admire this flower. Chapeau !
Greetings from an a bit springlike Westphalia - with still frosty nights!

Hi Korkut

Old students during winter time, but they don't care and sit on the steps of the stairs to kiss, they are alone in the world.

a beautiful sample of roses. curiously in portuguese the word rose is the same for pink color.
I guess there are two or more variations of this plant, some have these polen grains in evidence and others not.

I am commenting again belated as I have had many other tasks to do lately. This is a beautiful and well made photo. An excellent contribution to the theme.

looks the building isn't so old as the guide said.
I liked the ruined aspect and the cubic shapes of the buildings shown from a corner. nice details telling histories.

take care

I never used these machines, I guess I never saw them in brazil and even rarely abroad.
marvelous image, like a collage with the main frame in the girl posing inside the machine and the other people watching her around. perfect.

Hallo Frank,
This is an interesting and idyllic scene. The light is beautiful and the composition is pleasant. I do not remember ever seen so many cheep together. Normally they have been much smaller flocks of farms.

Greetings from Espoo, where we today will have the last small snowfalls. After today thawing.

cats are independent creatures, charm and independence are their tools while dogs use loyalty as the key for human hearts. haha.
the dog looks something afraid to go ahead in that thing but ... once I read that each dog thinks its owners are napoleon. I guess cats think its owners are an automatic feeder or a producer of caresses. haha.
marvelous flagrant with an intense sense of daily life and movement.

take care

in fact three lines crossing the same point is rare and the touch of red light created a nice visual. excellent flagrant.

the shapes of the ice are very beautiful and interesting here, we have a sense of movement in the image. a nice view of this small details of nature.
here we crossed the worst weeks of a summer in the history, thermometers were ever rounding around 35 celsius every day, during weeks. fortunately winds from south pole brought rain and refreshment and temperatures to normal.

take care

ellelloo (2019-02-13):

Hi Pat,
What a wonderful photo for the ToM. It is said that are attached to their owner and family, cats are attached to the house if anything. Well, as far as I know, cats are not fond of water.

lovely the curve surrounded by the fences with the big nude tree ahead in evidence. nice job.

ellelloo (2019-02-13):

Hi Barbara,
Two fine shots accompanied by a good informative note. B&W works well in the main photo, where you have also managed the light perfectly. I also like a lot the warm colours and atmosphere of the CI.
Lasse


BabaCam (2019-02-12):

Lovely - again. Both are very good, maybe a slight preference for the CI with more space as far as the horizon but on the other hand the main is more intimate. Ahh they're both wonderful. Meanwhile the weather is "heating" up over here. It feels completely like spring and more to come. Yet I am sure that the winter is not over for a long time. Getting ready for your holidays?


BabaCam (2019-02-12):

Uhh this looks like some BIG adventure. It actually would scare me pretty much I think wondering if the water stops where it should stop all squeezed in the channel. But I am sure folks who have done it know what to do. Definitely great fun to travel on the Midi channel - I am sure. I just biked beside it - so far. I like these photo scans, they contain this certain aura "we love to think about".


BabaCam (2019-02-12):

It is such a fun theme, the more you dig the wider or even wilder (hehe) it gets. What ever "wild love" means, if it is the love for the wilderness (stay warm, buy our cloth) or something else (LOL), it definitely fits the TOM.


CLODO (2019-02-12):

Hi Barbara

Almost no movement on PF these days, the site is dying.
I like the B&W but also the warm colors of the CI

Current discussion:

BabaCam (2019/02/12 10:05:21): It is really so bad at the moment. If folks do not stand up and write comments, also to all the users and not just to some, show images regularly, share their thoughts, answer to comments, share a thought without waiting for a comment etc. etc. etc. ... well here we go, this is PF these days. It reminds of me of the club life that is slowly dying out, not only in the photo world. Let's be honest, also Flickr or TE, you always see the same folks ... and nothing really new comes along - this is my impression from the outside, maybe it is not true either, can't say for sure as I am not involved (just visiting some folks here and there out of interest). Yet fact is that they're much bigger so it does not come over this way as we have it now these days on PF.

I do a bit of 500px but so far very lazily, too lazy to really build my fan club although it slowly starts to kick in. It is really well made but at the same time the photos look a bit the same all pretty glossy type so this is why I still find places like PF more interesting. I like the story telling aspect which gets lost on 500px - in my eyes, from my lazy stand point.

Shame, also for all the work some of us have done in the past and up until now. We'll see. I am still in the boat.

Really impressive, it looks like a bore. The boats must be well secured in front of this wave.

BabaCam (2019-02-10):

What an exotic path, okay not for you but palm trees are something that brings me to a holiday mood automatically - haha. We do have palm trees in Switzerland but on the other side of the Alps in the Ticino area in the South. They can endure some frost. For us in the North this smells like vacation. A good compo with the straight line decorated with the trees to the right.

borrazopolitan (2019/02/10 13:44:10): barbara

I remember these palms of ticino, the town itself had a mood of rio de janeiro with those rounded mountains and lake.

BabaCam (2019-02-10):

The camera should always be ready also @ work :-) How many times have I missed awesome skies and storms while working - angry at myself that I had left the cam at home. Oh well oh good. Definitely a wonderful sunset with all the different layers of orange to almost violet. Bot images work excellent. You must be famous at work "the man with the camera" - haha. Have a great Sunday, we're in for a storm they say.


ellelloo (2019-02-10):

Hello JMarc,
Lovely winter photos, all of them. The slight fog adds a lot to the atmosphere, which I like a lot. Especially the large version is my favourite with the hoar-frost trees.
All that winter beauty is gone here. It is raining and the snow depth has already reduced 18 cm in 3 days.
