"One day," you said to me, "I saw the sunset forty-four times!"

And a little later you added:

"You know--one loves the sunset, when one is so sad . . ."

"Were you so sad, then?" I asked, "on the day of the forty-four sunsets?"

But the little prince made no reply.

Although I am a winter person, I really enjoy spring and its fresh greens. And there are not many smells lovelier than the smell of a forest awakening to a new spring.

The quality of the photo isn't that good, but the view is wonderful, so I decided to share.

First real Christmas tree since I lived at home. Close-up adapter and pop-up flash.

2011-09-17 Upper Austria, district Rohrbach/OÖ - Zimmermoos (720 msm Quadrant 7448/2).

The uprooted tree as well as most trees in the background is Picea abies (in a habitat where, naturally, a mixed forest of spruce, fir and beech should dominate, so not quite as natural a habitat as it looks).

The moss species present here however are both typical and native for this habitat. Most prominent one here is Polytrichum formosum as well as some other (unidentified) Polytrichum species, then one Plagiochila asplenioides (?!), a few Hylocomium splendens mixed in (none prominent in the foreground), and in the background (in bokeh) there's also some Sphagnum species present.

Natural decorations and lights for the festive season.


The tree had a name-plate. :)

It seemed weak. May be too warm here. :(

Jeg gikk en tur på stien og søkte skogens ro

From our beautiful hike on the highest mountain on the island I'm from last weekend, when we visited my family.


I also finally heard the cuckoo for the first time this year that weekend - everywhere and all the time ツ ..and that's why I found this first verse of a well known children's song appropriate ツ


I have more lovely images from the forest here:

Snowy winter landscape. Riisitunturi, Posio, Finland. 14.3.2016.

A view down a shallow ravine on a mountain slope on the eastern limits of Zheleznogorsk, former Krasnoyarsk-26, in Eastern Siberia.


The town is still a restricted area surrounded by three rows of barbed wire 300 000 volt electric fence. It hosts two major Cold War objects with very plain, discrete names: Горно-химический комбинат (Mining and Chemical Combine), a factory hidden under 200 meters of solid rock with three plutonium-making reactors (two of which are reportedly shut down), and the Reshetnev ISS Information Satellite Systems, currently engaged in making satellites for the GLONASS program (among other things).
