Weekly Photo Challenge: Signs

“For this challenge, share an image of a sign: it can be a sign near your home — a comforting sight after a long journey — a sign that doubles as art, or other types of signs that hold meaning for you.”

Red and yellow speckles in the trees and falling leaves – signs that summer is over now and autumn rules our life for the next three months. I took this picture today when I went for a walk with my boyfriend through the park Humboldthain near our apartment. Hope you enjoy this entry.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Textures

“This week, share a texture found in an unexpected place. It could be made of natural materials, as in these images, or with man-made objects.”

What a great theme for a photo challenge because it can be interpreted in so many ways and we are surrounded by different textures everywhere. I immediately thought about a couple of pictures which I took while I travelled through New Zealand last year. I was so fascinated by the nature and its beauty. So here is a small collection of different textures like tree bark, solidified lava and sulphuric sediments. Hope you enjoy this entry.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Summer Lovin

Summer Lovin’
Show us something you love. It could be your favorite novel, the light of the moon on your deck at night, the beach on a hot day, or that special you-know-who. Get creative!

My boyfriend and I spent the weekend in Spreewald a beautiful biosphere reserve just an hour away from Berlin. It was time to relax a little bit and to leave the stress of work and the city behind us. So we enjoyed the sunny weather and explored the Spreewald by bike and with a canoe. Here are some Pictures I took over the weekend and which mean ‘Summer Lovin’ for me.

Weekly Photo Challenge: On Top (II)

I found it very funny that many blogger have posted pictures of pelicans this week. Don’t worry .. I don’t have another pic with a pelican but with different bird sitting on top of a fence. I don’t know what kind of bird it is. I took this picture in the Abel Tasman National Park where we (me and my boyfriend) did a day trip on the Abel Tasman Coastal Track which is as to say the most popular of the 9 Great Walks in New Zealand.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Beginning

I took this picture in Punakaiki/New Zealand early in the morning when I just got up. Punakaiki is best known for ist Pancake Rocks and blowholes. Where the Name does come from? Because These coastal rocks look ike enormous stacks of pancakes. They were formed 30 million years ago from fragments of skeletons and Shells. Over the millenia they have been sculpted by mildly acidic rain, wind and sea water. It’s a great viewing spot over the west coast of the southland and if you’re lucky (just like me that morning) you can even see the top of the mountains of the Southern Alps. I was completely alone this morning .. just me and the sound of the waves. A great ‘beginning’ of a new day.
