Enough of politics, diseases and all that stuff. This is a photography blog. 😉
Do you remember my picture of Devil’s Table from August 2020?
I promised to show you the back side of it, so here we go (later as planned, I admit).
Which side do you like more?

January 6th was the birthday of one of my favourite philosophers: Alan Watts. Alas, I missed the opportunity to post something in his honour, so just a small quote today that came into my mind:

“The more we struggle for life (as pleasure), the more we are actually killing what we love.” 
– Alan Watts

And before I wish you all a nice week, here is an alternative shot to this beautiful rock:

I went a bit nearer for this and waited till the sun was lower.
Have a nice one!

Symbiosis

One plus one equals one

Or 1+1=1.
This reminds me of one episode of the tv series “Life” from 2007 (not the newer series with the same name):

“What we learned as children, that one plus one equals two, we know to be false. One plus one equals one. We even have a word for when you, plus another, equals one. That word is love.”

No, I don’t say these trees love each other, I just thought that was a nice symbolism here.

On the technical side:
The somewhat extreme perspective is due to an ultra wide angle lens I used – the focal length is 13mm!
While a fisheye lens would have resulted in curved trees and other strange effects, with an ultra wide angle lens straight lines stay straight, but you still get a dramatic perspective.

Monolith

Actually I wanted to write a witty allusion to 2001 (the movie), but that would have been too uninspired, I guess. But there, I made it kind of…
This thing is about 8 meters high and weighs 55 tons.
Took several decent shots during sunset, I liked this one most. Maybe I’ll share some alternative versions on my flickr stream in the next days.
(And as always – click to enlarge this one!)

Have a great week everyone!

Devil’s Table 2020

Devil's Table 2020

I love the rock formations in our forest.
This mushroom rock here is with its height of around 14 meters (46 ft.) one of the most famous in our region – the so-called Devil’s Table.

I went out during sunset to get some nice warm colors.
In the next few weeks I am going to post the other side of this nature’s marvel on this blog and in the meantime some alternative shots that I took with my Fisheye lense on flickr, so you should also check out my pictures there, if you are interested.

Highly recommended to view in higher resolution (click on picture).

Water Tower

It’s been a while…
I wish I could say it has been a creative break, but the reason was simply life. 😉
Today I have a black and white HDR picture for you. It looks gloomy, but that’s what weather and life have been like recently. However, no use in complaining as it is simply the impermanence of life as we all know it.
Anyways, things will go uphill again (and down and up and so on). 😉
Or as the sage once inscribed on that ring: “This too shall pass.”
The important thing is to have some fun on the way.
