0812 - defenceless

are these art or trash, what do you think? unfortunately light wasn't as it ought to be today in the early morning, so that an ordinary landscape shot was no option. so i thought about a way to express the greyness of landscape, the defencelessness of these gracile plants and the circumstance that the already hurt, huge grasses are completely and utterly at the winter's mercy.

only a few of the blades are still standing. the rest is fractured and snapped of. beneath the burden of the heavy, relatively wet snow they are not able to resist.

in the course of the arriving winter the scenery and the rural townscape evolve into perfect advent postcard subjects.

light, soft snowflakes waft through the alleys and dip the landscape in a clear, plain white. the windows are already richly decorated and fir branches make for festive atmosphere. so cosy.

long walks in the woods ease my mood. every time i go into the forest all the unnecessary information is erased and space for new activities is created.

in my case the recovery of energy from the indefinitely complex nature is tremendous, even if the lights are almost gone already. when the shadows gain the mastery over the whites, all the parts of nature put their shapes down and become softer and smoother. what a great sight!

1611 - burning bum syndrome

since i hanged up my active football career in may, cycling has come into my focus more and more. my bum isn't accustomed to the daily rides yet, so many a time it gets me back for stressing it permanently.

nevertheless currently there is nothing better and relieving for me than riding a bike in the cold mornings or evenings and a hot shower afterwards.
