Facebook est un lieu d' échange

Pourtant , il n' y a pas que des Anges

Des personnes sont très intéressantes

D' autres rassurantes

 

Le reflet de notre société

Des gens angoissés

Beaucoup de souffrance

En recherche d' espérance

 

Moi je n' ai que mes mots

Pour effacer des maux

De la couleur

Qui réchauffe les cœurs

 

Prenez bien soin de vous

Bisous

Heiß, heißer, am heißesten ... meine Güte, war das eine heiße Sommernacht ... nur wenn man den kleinen Finger bewegte, brach man schon in Schweiß aus. Stundenlang haben wir am Main gestanden und gewartet, dass die Stadt im Dunkel der Nacht versinkt ... Vor uns tanzten die Schiffe auf dem Main, machten Pirouetten, dann ein kleines Motorboot, ... was hätte ich dafür gegeben, mir den Fahrtwind um die Ohren wehen zu lassen. Später ein paar Surfer, die wie die Gondolieri über den Fluss schipperten. Lang schauen, beobachten ... mal in der Zeit zu sein und nicht zu hetzen ... diese Stunden bleiben unvergessen und sind wie ein innerer Urlaub, wenns außen mal nicht geht.

Dieses Foto entstand gegen 5.40 Uhr am Grand Canyon. Eigentlich hatten wir es uns so vorgestellt, dass wir allein am Mather Point stehen würden, um mit großem Genuss zu beobachten, wie sich die Sonne diesen großartigen Canyon von der Nacht zurück erobert.

Aber es sollte ganz anders kommen. Während wir gutdeutsch gemäß den Geschwindigkeitsvorschriften zum Nationalpark tuckerten, wurden wir links und rechts überhastet, angeblinkt und mit unwirschen Blicken traktiert. Zwischen zwei Reisebussen eingeklemmt, machten wir uns am Eingang des Nationalparks keine Illusionen mehr. Der stille Sonnenaufgang würde ein Massenspektakel werden.

Was tut Mensch, wenn er an einem großartigen Ort auf den ersten Sonnenstrahl wartet? Klar: Sabbeln. Reden. Quasseln. Lachen. Wiehern. Und das um 5.30. Quasseln in allen Sprachen der Welt. Unaufhörlich. Ohne Unterlass. Kein Moment ruhiger Erwartung. Mir als Morgenmuffel eh ein Graus, Stimmen am frühen Morgen zu hören, entfachte das aufdringliche Lachgemurmel wahre Killerinstinkte in mir. Von der Aussichtsplattform rückten wir schnell ab und verzogen uns immer mehr zum Rand. Adios, du schöner Ausblick.

Und da: Mit einer atemberaubenden Gemächlichkeit schiebt sich die Sonne mit einer überirdischen Aura über den Horizont.

Huch! Hinter mir brandet Applaus auf und gleichzeitig ein Blitzlichtgewitter. Während die einen die Sonne für ihre tägliche Arbeit beklatschen, versuchen Hundertscharen von Handys und Kompakten dem größten aller Canyons Licht einzuschenken.

Ich muss lachen. Und langsam pellt sich aus all dem Gemurmel ein einziges, gut vernehmbares Wörtchen: Coffee, Coffee, Coffee, ... und Schlag um Schlag fällt die Meute fällt auseinander. Schiebt sich zurück zu ihren Bussen. Nur fünf Minuten später ist das Feld geräumt ... und fast unbemerkt durch flutet die Sonne eine Schicht nach der anderen und entfaltet ihr größtes Spektakel.

Ich bin so froh, keinen Kaffee mehr trinken zu müssen. Tee tut's auch

Most of the stops along the Icefields Parkway are views of mountain lakes, the fabulous Canadian Rockies and glaciers. This is particularly true of the portion of the parkway in Banff National Park. As you travel north on this amazing 140-mile road and enter Jasper National Park, waterfalls become more prevalent. There are several small ones along the way, but the first sizable one is this one, Sunwapta Falls. The falls actually consists of two falls, one downstream away from the first one that is closer to the parkway. The falls gets its name from the Assiniboine Native Americans meaning "turbulent water". The Athabasca River is sourced by the Columbia Glacier and is at its most spectacular in the spring with the snow melt. The river passes over the falls on its way to the town of Jasper to the north.

 

The Facebook saga continues.

Ich wohne nun mal so zirka 60 Kilometer von den Alpen entfernt. Der Wendelstein ist das Massiv, das hier die Blicke auf sich zieht. Wir lieben ihn so wie im Chiemgau die Kampenwand geliebt wird. Manchmal fahre ich abends mit dem Auto ein paar Kilometer Richtung Süden, vielleicht 10 Kilometer. Von dort bieten sich immer wieder so schöne Ausblicke wie hier in Jakobbaiern. Die Alpen sind so erhaben und berühren mich im Herzen und im Gemüt. Wenn ich Glück habe, kommt meine Tochter mit. Gemeinsam genießen wir solche Momente, wo man nur ein paar Vögel zwitschern hört, dann und wann ein vorüberfahrendes Auto und das Muhen einer Kuh. Dann kommt das Köpfchen meiner mittlerweile erwachsenen Tochter ganz nah und manchmal flüstert sie mir ins Ohr: "Das brauche ich zum leben."

Just about caught up with this year's photo trips and selecting photos to edit. I have spent the most time this year in Grand Teton National Park, and so this week's posts will focus on this beautiful place.

 

You might question my title for today's photo. Schwabacher's Landing is one of the iconic places to shoot in the park. I have visited this location numerous times in the park and have been totally shut out. On four of my visits, the mountains were socked in. On two other visits, the National Park Service, in its infinite wisdom, closed down the access road and I was unable to get there. So on this past visit with my buddy Jeff Clow, all I wanted was to get a decent shot of the Tetons from this spot. Jeff delivered big time (okay, Mother Nature also played a big part) and I was able to snag this shot on a beautiful morning. Normally, I might have wished for some nice cumulous clouds, but beggars can't be choosers. This location is often referred to as Schwabacher's Landing, but, in actuality, it is Lower Schwabacher's Landing, More on the lesser known Upper Schwabacher's Landing later this week.

Imagine that you decide to move west to Wyoming. You pack up all of your belongings into covered wagons that are more than likely powered by oxen. You brave the sweltering heat of summer and try to stay warm on those frigid nights on the plains. Along the way you see the beauty of the American landscape, but with that beauty comes a ruggedness that many will not overcome. Finally you reach your destination with the magnificent Grand Tetons of the Rockies as your backdrop. You think about relaxing, but no, housing has to be built and food and water needs to be found. Somehow, you survive and raise a family in this location.

 

These are my fictional thoughts of what might have happened as I compose photos of the John Moulton Homestead. I wonder if I would have survived such a trip without a supermarket to buy food from, a car to get around, a computer to find out what is going on, electricity to power all of my modern conveniences, etc (the list goes on and on). Probably not, but standing in front of these remaining houses and barns with the majestic mountains in the background, I think I might have tried. Just think of waking up every morning and seeing what Mother Nature would have in store for me. I guess for me, shooting photos in this wonderful place is a trip through time that leaves me wondering what really happened.

The Red Hills are located just east of Grand Teton National Park and are rarely visited by tourists. The main attraction of this area are the hills, which have a beautiful red color that I believe are caused by mineral deposits. It is an area that I have photographed a number of times. You might ask where they are in this photo, and my answer is that they are not, but rather to my back. On my visits here before I have tried and failed to get a shot looking west toward the Tetons, because, prior to this visit, the haze has always negatively impacted the scene. This time, the haze was almost non-existent, and I was able to get a decent shot. I composed this using both the split rail fence of Red Hills Ranch and the dirt road as leading lines to the top of the Tetons.

Every landscape photographer that I talk to about Monument Valley remembers the first time that they visited and took photos. I know I remember mine. As you approach from the north, you begin to see the unique rock formations in the distance. It is pretty cool looking, as the land is relatively flat and you see these things sticking in the air. Your first thought is to wonder if it is real or a mirage. The closer you get, you realize that these are huge formations. Then you hit Mile Marker 13 where I took this photo. The road dips down and then rises to the valley. It is quite the awesome experience to appreciate what Mother Nature has created.

 

This spot has been shot a million times and, after my visit, a million and one (or fifty). Most photos show a wider field of vision and are shot from the middle of the road. I chose on this one to zoom a bit and take it from the side of the road. Regardless of the composition, it is quite the view.

In about a month from today, I will be headed back to the majestic Canadian Rockies. No matter how many times I visit there, I always want to go back. June is a special time of the year for visiting and photographing. There is usually lots of snow left on the mountain peaks and there may also be a thin layer of ice on the lakes. The wildlife seems more plentiful during the month and there are sometimes babies to be seen. Lastly, the summer crowds are yet to make their way to this popular vacation destination.

 

Whenever I have an approaching trip, I start reviewing my photos from previous trips to see what I may have missed. I also spend some time looking at other photographers works to see what I may have missed or maybe a different way to look at a scene. In any case, I am starting to get quite excited about my trip to Banff, as it is my number one destination of all of the places I have been.

 

This photo of Herbert Lake is from my last trip there. All you have to do to get this shot is to wake up very early, hope that the weather cooperates, drive the fabulous Icefields Parkway to the lake, park on the shoulder of the road, get out of the car, and compose and take the shot.

While driving to Acadia after our Maine Photo Tour, my buddy Jeff Clow did what he does best to find the off-the-beaten-track spots. He said to me, "Why don't you turn down this unpaved road and find out if there is anything there worth shooting?" Usually when he says that, the payoff is terrific. This was the case as we drove a little ways down the road. The colors of the foliage were on full display very quickly. We had luckily timed our tour with the peak of the Maine foliage season. It was late this year and both we and our tour participants were rewarded for it.

 

I have lived in New England for over 20 years but had never seen the ground change colors from green to red. Trees and bushes yes, ground no. We found out later that this was a huge blueberry field and blueberry plants change color with the season (who knew?). In any case, the colors just popped for us even though the ground and trees were in the shade due to the cloud cover. Maybe I should have titled this post "Blueberry Fields Forever?"

Last week, I posted an image of the Chapel of the Transfiguration from the outside, showing the front of the chapel with the Tetons in the background. I also stated that there was a great shot of the mountains from inside the chapel. What I neglected to say was that there is a third shot. This one has eluded me over the years but I was finally able to capture it on my last trip. As you can see in this photo, it is a reflection of the mountains from the back window of the chapel. The window sits right above the altar, and you can see the crucifix and some flowers that are inside the chapel. When I took this photo, there were also faces of people in the window but fortunately, they weren't visible when I edited it.

I'm The Bratz Fan Foto Friday for this week!

Thank you so much!

I have discovered a penchant of mine several years ago for old forts. I never went out of my way to visit these relics of past wars, but would visit them as part of being a tourist. It wasn't until I visited Key West a few years ago that they became a favorite photographic subject. At that time, in my quest to visit all of the US National parks, we took a boat ride to Dry Tortugas National Park. There, I photographed Fort Jefferson and was mesmerized by the brickwork and cascading walkways that seemed to go on forever. So, now when I visit a new area, I check out to see if there are any old forts in the area.

 

When I visited Savannah, we made a side trip to Cockspur Island to check out Fort Pulaski National Monument. Fork Pulaski was built in 1847 along the Savannah River to protect the port city of Savannah. It had a minor historical role in the Civil War, first being occupied by the Confederate Army, and later used by the Union Army to shut down the port of Savannah and also as a POW camp.

 

Upon gaining entrance to the fort, I headed to the lower section to find the cascading walkway that I loved. Sure enough, the walkway had the requisite brickwork that I loved to shoot. A bonus was a cannon at the far end of the walkway. If you look closely on the floor, you can see the tracks where the soldiers could move the cannons into position to fire.

Another post on how certain land formations got their name. The Navajo Indians thought that rainbows were the guardians of the universe and they held this rock formation to be sacred because of it. Prior to the creation of Lake Powell, Rainbow Bridge was one of the most remote destinations to visit. Even now, there are two ways to reach it - a two-hour boat ride from Page or a 14-mile hike through Navajo land (a permit is required).

 

The bridge itself is made of sandstone and is thought to be the world's highest natural bridge. It was formed over thousands of years when the area was alternately a sea and desert. This produced layers of sandstone with different levels of hardness and compressed them so tightly as to withstand time.
