Not anymore

These old fuel stations are strewn along the country side roads. This one has been closed for a while.

Sleepy Valley

We came by Sleepy Valley Road somewhere in the country side of Vermont. And this is the farm right next to it.

Vermont Mill

Right next to the Vermont Country Store :)

A neat old water mill, set up as a museum piece as far as I know.

New England

Red barns... as in Skandinavia. But different. You find a lot of them in New England and they really add to the look of the rural landscape.

Park Hill

We came by Park Hill Meeting House. I did not only take an image of the house itself but also of the information sign. Instead of writing the information in my own words, I show you the sign.

Glowing Ideas


My lightpainting games, lately, with a plastic skull and a flashlight.

Trollfjord

The boat ride into and out of trollfjord is a local classic that you should not miss out on if you stay on Lofoten.

Bird Cliffs

The bird cliffs of Helgoland are tightly packed with birds: Guillemots, seagulls and gannets.

Chick Walk

On a ridge of rock on Helgoland's bird cliffs a seagull mother is feeding her 3 chicks. I love how they blend in. I bet of all those people standing up on the cliff only very few noticed the chicks.

Gannet Romance


These gannets were almost cuddeling on the cliff side. I caught them in this perfect pose during their movements and love the shot.

For once

For once I am showing an image of myself. I thought I needed to do that for a change.


Thanks to Sam for taking the image and to Feli for letting me use the flower.

Warm Days

Now that fall is coming, I have a summery image for you:

Houses on Madeira are southern, colorful and often seem to have been extended a few times, by the looks of them.

Within the Tunnel

When hiking along the Levadas on Madeira we did take several trips that involved passing through the tunnels, partially for quite a long stretch. They can be narrow or wider, none of them is really big, partially you hit your head and arms all the time, others are more comfortable to walk.

All of them - as far as I know - are not lit up and the daylight fades after a few meters in. Good headlamps and flash lights are essential.

The Tow-Truck


We found the tow truck from Cars, recreated and sitting right there next to the road. We just had to stop and grab a picture!  Keene, NH, August 2014.

Hello up There


He was eyeing me for a while. Then he kept on munching the sunflower seeds.

Lonely Trailer

This trailer has been sitting in the woods for quite a while. This is what it looks like in its partial decay.

Munchkin on the Flower

This flower-feeding chipmunk was really patient with the photographer, as you can tell. The seed were just too good.
New Hampshire, August 2014.

The Chipmunk's Throne

The chipmunks were felling absolutely happy ontop of the sunflowers. I think next to the abundance of food there they loved the overview.

Downtown Boston

We went on a stroll in downtown Boston in the best possible weather when we spent time around town in August.

Duck Tours

The Boston Duck Tours are legendary. Amphibious vehicle take you around the thick traffic of Boston then onto the Charles River in one smooth ride. The drivers are all real characters and make the ride an entertaining event plus all the sight seeing that you get to do. It is real fun and I can truely recommend it!

In The Eye Of The Shark

The feeling of a shark looking at you - even through thick glass - is somewhat strange. This one was looking pretty innocent, though.

New England Aquarium, Boston, August 2014.

Hair-Do

This guy - seen at the New England Aquarium, Boston - had about the weirdest look I ever expected.

Humming Bird's Flight

The little humming birds were just so cute how they hovered around the flowers, buzzed up and down and were poking their beaks into flowers - but also into the corn flowers in the field behind them.

Fuel is Out

I love these old fuel pumps. I find them all over the place and mostly they look pretty broken and out of use. These ones here in Vermont were just the same.

Hanging off the Flower


This was something I was watching a lot with the chipmunks. They crawled over the edge of the sunflower, took some seeds and then hung off them for a while, munching or watching their surroundings.
