Spring Time Bloom

One of the first things to catch your attention in spring time bloom is a magnolia tree.

Das erste, was einem im Frühlingserwachen ins Auge fällt, ist die Blütenpracht einer Magnolie.

Tiger's Time

This tiger in a zoo was keeping a very close look on the people outside the glass.

We at the Waterfall

Here we are - with a soaking wet camera after images taken here. The remote controlled image has a spec of water on just that spot covering me. Oh well.

Over the Edge


This is Dettifoss. No, really. Just seen from right above the edge. The water disappears to the depth.

Mists of Dettifoss

Dettifoss bathes you in mists on its edge.
Be prepared to get wet. But you are prepared for that anyways, by the time you reach Dettifoss.

Selfoss in all its glory


Selfoss just north of Dettifoss - not the city in southern Iceland - is the most impressive horse shoe fall I know of. Except maybe Godafoss.

The Canyon of Dettifoss

Below Dettifoss - that is in yesterday's post - there is a majestic canyon. In this image it is not filled with fog but with mist from the waterfall that is, at times, filling the canyon, then wafting away, then filling things up again.

Review of Old images

We have been to Iceland several times. I am just reviewing images of 2012 and came across this image of Dettifoss in the Icelandic north.

Dettifoss is Europe's biggest waterfal, crashing down 45 meters on a wide edge and dumps so much water over the edge permanently that you think you hear many airplanes take off right next to you.

The PAPERminis

Here is the link to the PAPERminis. I am publishing these images on www.ctl2013 - the blog of Come To Life 2013. Here on trans-pond I have created a page for the images to keep them neatly in one place.

What do you think about these images? What are your ideas for future scenes?

Hier ist der Link zu den PAPERminis. Ich veröffentliche diese Bilder auf www.ctl2013.de - dem Blog von Come To Life 2013. Hier auf trans-pond habe ich eine Seite für die PAPERminis eingerichtet, damit ich sie alle ordentlich an einem Ort sammeln kann.

I was out, taking spring pictures, yesterday.
And this one I wanted to bring straight to you.

The surf of Unstad

The bay of Unstad, Lofoten, is know for surfing, as I wrote earlier. This tiny little wave does not make you think that, but at the time that we were there the bay was batteling a severe storm - from the land side. You can see that from the water drafting back from the wave top. The strong storm was keeping the waves small.

Contrasts on the Land

Sun under heavy clouds, northern landscapes the way you just have to love them.

PAPERminis No. 6: The diner is open


The PAPERmini world takes you on another excursion. Unfortunately the dock is broken. Good that some of the guys get there for repairs.

Pencil on folded paper.

Die PAPERmini Welt läd Euch zu einem weiteren Ausflug ein. Leider ist der Steg kaputt. Da ist es gut, dass ein paar der Leute sich dort einfinden, um ihn zu reparieren.
