Dutchmen Pipe Leaf vine wrapped around the barbed wire in the late evening bokeh as the sun went down through the trees and the light shining in .I like the way the vine wraps around the barbed wire mingling together and I enjoy the spider webs that are not seen until you look close, My sister gave me this Dutchmen pipe vine many years ago

Lights and shadows of the leaves on the barbed wire

The embankment Dutchman comes from 1869 and is equipped after the restoration with sail fence wings and a compass rose. Since the 1930s the mill with an engine was driven, therefore, the wind arrangement was completely diminished after a storm damage in 1941 and was grown only with the admission in the mill programme of the circle again. The technology does not exist up to an electrically powered stone groats way any more, the mill has a steel wing wave and a roller bearing as a collar bearing which is used otherwise seldom in the conservation of monuments and historic buildings.

The Flying Dutchman, according to folklore, is a ghost ship that can never go home, doomed to sail the oceans for ever. The Flying Dutchman is usually spotted from afar, sometimes glowing with ghostly light. It is said that if hailed by another ship, its crew will try to send messages to land or to people long dead. In ocean lore, the sight of this phantom ship is a portent of doom.

The legend of the Flying Dutchman concerns a ghost ship that can never make port, doomed to sail the oceans forever. It probably originates from 17th century nautical folklore. The oldest extant version dates to the late 18th century.

Sightings in the 19th and 20th centuries report the ship to be glowing with ghostly light. It is said that if hailed by another ship, its crew will try to send messages to land or to people long dead. In ocean lore, the sight of this phantom ship is a portent of doom.

  

The embankment Dutchman in Bierde was built in 1802. In this mill some special forms are found: On the one hand, from the earth under the cap straight wooden octagonal body; an easier construction than the otherwise waisted efforts bodies which derive the wind better and decrease the traffic jam pressure after the wings. On the other hand the mill is equipped with the new Venetian blind wings which are headed not with a pierced wing wave but by a Hecht'sche very rare in the mill circle Venetian blind control, tip to an additional change of the wing kind. Furthermore is there the standard crotch processed to the compass rose goat. The gear of the mill is not functioning yet, so that the wings turn without load.

 

Beside the windmill the steam mill is accommodated in a building. The building offered much more place and could be driven by the new energy steam. This mill has worked till 1990, in the end in the personal use.

The legend of the Lost Dutchman's Gold Mine centers around the Superstition Mountains. According to the legend, a German immigrant named Jacob Waitz discovered a mother lode in the Superstition Wilderness and revealed its location on his deathbed in Phoenix in 1891 to Julia Thomas, a boarding-house owner who had taken care of him for many years. Several mines have been claimed to be the actual mine that Waitz discovered, but none of those claims have been verified- Wikipedia

Living in the Arizona desert for twenty years now (OMG), I have never seen the light on these mountains as brilliant. After a storm passed through the rainbow that came out was placed perfectly. I was in the mountains when the storm rolled in but left only to be miles away when I first spotted it. This was as close as I could get knowing I had to stop to catch any of the bow color.

This one is from Frisian town Franeker, and you can find it in the Martena Museum....

Actually it is a scale model, craftily made of silver...

  

Dutchman Falls Swirl......Dutchman Falls is located in the Wyoming State Forest in Sullivan Co Pennsylvania. As I made my way down to the falls I was looking for different angles for appealing compositions and really didn't see anything that I really liked until I noticed the swirl of leaves in the pool below the falls. The light was low and I was able to get a long enough exposure to capture the swirl!

The kitesurfers loved the stormy weather and showed us some difficult and dangerous jumps.

It was a spectacular show.

Sometimes Jasper decides to take odd routes, like over a big rock rather than around. This is in Lost Dutchman State Park about 30 minutes from our home in Apache Junction, AZ. The landscape here always intrigues me. Rough and tumble cowboy country

After all this time I finally managed to create a decent picture of my flagship.

My great sister helped me to transform this 'good' picture into a great one :D

 

My only regret is that part of the main and foremast are not in the picture...

 

From time to time I still make some adjustments to the ship, it really is never finished.

I may try some new things for the headrails once again, mainly because I get some comments on those during events though.

 

One of these days I really have to construct a proper studio, use a 'decent' camera and take the time to really optimize the conditions for capturing this ship...

Die Feder aus dem Traum

 

In den frühen Morgenstunden sei er regelmäßig aufgestanden und am Rand der Klippen entlang gelaufen, bis die Ferien zu Ende waren.

„Es fällt mir schwer, jetzt hier im Zug zu sitzen und auf dem Weg zurück in den Alltag zu sein.“ Robert lächelte dennoch. „Aber es sind nur noch vier Jahre bis zu meiner Pensionierung. Dann werde ich mir ein Haus kaufen, unweit von dem, was ich im Sommer immer miete.“

Auf einem der letzten Spaziergänge habe er einen Wanderer getroffen, den er schon zuvor gesehen, aber noch nie gesprochen hätte. Er habe sich ihm langsam genähert, während der Mann mit Hut, dunkelgrüner Regenjacke und Regenschirm auf das Meer hinaussah. In angemessenem Abstand sei er hinter ihm stehen geblieben und die aufgehende Sonne und die Vögel gesehen.

„Ich hatte das gleiche Bild vor Augen, wie der Wanderer“, sagte Robert. „Die Möwen zogen kreischend vorbei, der Wind und das Meer rauschten monoton und plötzlich hatte ich wieder dieses Gefühl von Unendlichkeit.“

Und dann erzählte er mir einen Traum, den er kürzlich von der Klippe gehabt habe, und in diesem sei er an die Stelle des Mannes getreten und habe sich vorgestellt, eine Möwe zu sein. Genau das sei dann passiert. Er habe gespürt wie der Haut Federn entwuchsen, in Sekunden größer und größer wurden, bis er bemerkt habe, dass er ausgewachsen sei und fliegen könne.

„Ich startete ganz leicht. Ich brauchte nur die Schwingen zu öffnen und wurde vom Wind erfasst und getragen.“

Er beschrieb, wie das Gefühl von Freiheit und Seligkeit noch lange nach dem Erwachen in ihm vorherrschte und ihn mit tiefer Dankbarkeit erfüllte.

Das Gespräch mit dem Mann ein paar Tage zuvor sei wohl der Auslöser für den Traum gewesen, denn der habe ihm gesagt, dass er oft auf diesem Felsvorsprung stehe und sich vorstelle, wie Segelschiffe aus früheren Jahrhunderten vorüberschipperten, gefolgt von Möwen, die um Reste aus der Kombüse kämpften.

„Ich habe dann ein solches Schiff gesehen“, sagte Robert und schilderte, wie er die Flügel zu einem schnellen Flug hinab an den Körper zog und in wenigen Sekunden den Möwenschwarm erreichte. Er habe gesehen, wie sich die anderen auf die Reste stürzten und schaukelnd im Kielwasser schwammen.

Der Traum sei dann irgendwie gesprungen und er habe sich in seinem Bett liegend gefühlt.

„Ich wollte gar nicht aufwachen und bin einfach liegen geblieben. Als ich dann später zum letzten Mal vor meiner Abreise den Weg über die Klippen nahm, betrat ich den verwaisten Aussichtsplatz und fand diese Möwenfeder.“

Während er sprach, hatte er eine grauweiße Flügelfeder aus seiner Jackentasche gezogen und zeigte sie mir.

„Das kann doch kein Zufall sein“, sagte er. „Ich muss sie immer wieder ansehen. Es ist, als hätte ich sie aus meinem Traum mitgebracht.“

"The Flying Dutchman" - South Stack, Anglesey, Wales by Alejandro Roman Gonzalez

taken in Catskill,NY. ......... Explore42#113

Although I'm later than everyone else posting from the BBQ Mike and I had this past Saturday, I wanted to at least upload one shot from that beautiful place. This is the view I had right outside my motorhome in the morning. Not too hard to take. Of course anyone who was there will know I took a few liberties with the sky.

 

It was so nice to meet everyone and we really had a great time. Thanks to everyone for coming out and thanks to Nicki and her husband Mike for the help cleaning up the next morning:-))

 

I want to wish everyone a Happy Easter.

 

Right now, I'm heading to the shower to have my first shower in soft water since leaving home!!!! I can't stand hard water so I got a water softener for the motorhome. You can't imagine how excited I am about having soft water!!!
