I took this picture while hiking around Saalburg, an old Roman fort in Taunus Region in Germany. I like how the light hits the beech tree and how it stands out from the dark background that is created by the higher trees around it.

There is not much time to take photos recently. That is unfortunate. But those are my gloves after the patio work.

I love the fresh green of beech trees in spring, especially when the leaves are hit by the sun. It only lasts a few days until it turns into a darker green.

This little guy tried to escape the rain and exposed himself to all the people going for a walk on that road.

Just some flower in our garden. Did I say that I love the bokeh of my new Canon macro lens? Also, I update to the latest Lightroom and experimented a bit with the new presets that they added in that version. I like them!

Last Sunday I went for a short walk in the neighborhood just after a short rain shower. On one of the garden walls, a whole bunch of snails tried to escape the rain. I captured only two of them, but there were probably five or 6 in total. Again and again, I’m amazed how good some of the pictures are that the iPhone produces. This one was processed with Photoshop Express on the phone.
Today, I have a second photo and that is a photo that I captured in similar ways in previous years. Fresh spring blossoms on trees. It just so nice to see nature awakening after the winter. Spring is coming.

On another note, I ordered a new lens: Canon 100mm macro F/2.8 USM. By the time this post goes live, I should have the lens. Expect first photos taken with that lens by next week Friday!
As our garden project is progressing I have very little time for photography right now. Hence I’m posting a photo I took last year in May in Sweden. I like the combination of fresh flower and vibrant colors next to the dead trunk of a tree.

Simple photo from our garden. The photo wasn’t taken today, but today morning we had frost again. Fortunately, we should get warmer temperatures over the weekend. Really looking forward to spring.

You don’t need the fancy camera to take pictures that mean something to you. This is taken in our house. I love it when the evening sun shines through the window and draws the shadow of a plant that stands right in front of the window. It’s a quiet photo, but it means home and that means a lot to me.

I decided to post one of my photos every Friday 6pm GMT+1. I hope you like what I’m sharing!
The picture was taken not too far away from my house. I saw a nice group of trees during a short hike through the local forest. I pointed the camera straight up and then merely converted to black/white in Lightroom.
