We awoke to temps in the 30s this morning, frost making its first appearance and announcing that the splendid fall we've been enjoying will soon come to an end.

 

I am loathe to let go of my favorite season and so I'll continue to brighten the shortening days with vivid colors on my palette and extend the season a bit longer.

 

From Hal Borland's "Sundial of the Seasons" (1964) "Frost Walks the Valleys:"

 

"First frost has walked through the valleys under the half moon. You could hear it whispering through the fallen leaves as it hurried down the hillsides in the evening, feel its crisp breath as it passed you on a country road. And at dawn you could see its path, glistening on the goldenrod stems and powdering the purple asters. Midmorning, and the tender gardens in the lowlands had limp and blackened rows of tomato vines to mark its path.....

 

First frost is like a newcomer in a strange country, following the beaten paths of the valleys .....

 

Meanwhile, there will be mornings when the valleys are lakes of mist, with the frost there beneath them. There will be noons when the valley air is almost touched with June. There will be evenings when the long light on the hillsides is full of magic. And there will be nights when the wood smoke wreathes the starlight in the hollows.

 

But once first frost has passed this way, the pattern is set ..... and after that the frost will walk boldly over the land."

 

Catch the color while we can! Happy Weekend!

I can't believe it actually snowed today!! I thought we were heading into spring and it snows! The weather has gone crazy. My thoughts are with those affected by the earthquake in Japan and the tsunami's and those impacted by it - its seems unbelievable. You always think you are badly off, until you see the suffering that can fall upon others - there is always someone worse off......

Fall, leaves, fall; die, flowers, away;

Lengthen night and shorten day!

Every leaf speaks bliss to me,

Fluttering from the autumn tree...

~Emily Brontë

Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared. - Gautama Buddha

This wildflower, or weed, depending on your point of view, is abundant along roadsides in Ohio during the late summer. This was shot on a chilly and windy October morning, using off-camera flash at 1/32 power to shorten the effective shutter speed.

To shorten winter, borrow some money due in spring .

Thanks for the visit ...... have a great weekend :-)

  

These are more pollard willows whose trunk has been shortened as a young tree at a height of approximately 1 to 3 meters and whose branches are cut regularly.

Since branches of willows were often used as piles for the construction of fences, new plants emerged from these piles due to the enormous regenerative capacity of the willows. For this reason, pollard willows often occur (e.g. in the Lower Rhine area) in a row.

 

Today, there is now economic use of willows, as industrial substitute products have been established. This is why pollard willows are no longer cultivated nowadays.

Camden Town, shortened to Camden, is in north west London, England. Packed with restaurants and bars, Camden is a must see destination if you want to experience urban London.

Chamonix-Mont-Blanc (usually shortened to Chamonix) is a resort area near the junction of France, Switzerland and Italy. At the base of Mont Blanc, the highest summit in the Alps, it's renowned for its skiing. Year-round, cable cars take visitors up to several nearby peaks with panoramic views, including Aiguille du Midi above town, and Pointe Helbronner, across vast glacier fields on the Italian border.

I appreciate your feedback and comments! If you wish to contact me for any reason feel free to send me a Flickr mail or message me on any other social media and I'll reply as soon as I can.

Increased the ISO and shortened the shutter time so that the clouds and water could be captured without a lot of movement ... I think this time of day was very pretty without doing the long exposure, so made the adjustments for this capture.

 

Also zoomed in to 105mm to pick up details on those homes across the river ... as those folks there settle into night ;)

An ill transport train, shortened KrTrspZg, was a hospital train of the armed forces. Such trains were planned at times of the cold war in the back corps area to the evacuation of supplied patients by the main association places and military hospitals to the reserve military hospitals in the back fighting zone (also the Netherlands and Belgium). The ill transport trains of the ill transport companies (rail) resulted for the original draught of hospital train belonging to armed forces which was not realised for cost reasons as originally planned.

 

The carriage of treatment build from 1965 to 1967 by Wegmann & Co. in Kassel with the factory number 8786.

 

First he ran with the company number 910 001 P as a D4ümz-65, later with the number 51 80 09‑53001‑6 P than Dmz903. He has a closed, gasproof carriage box and is equipped with an air-conditioning. Two doctor's offices disposed of a complete operating theatre.

 

Beside the speech room with chemist's shop the lab and rooms lie for doctors and nursing staff. He differs from the economic carriage above all by six evenly distributed portholes on a carriage side.

Urban exploration (often shortened as urbex, UE, bexing, urbexing and sometimes known as roof-and-tunnel hacking) is the exploration of man-made structures, usually abandoned ruins or not usually seen components of the man-made environment. Photography and historical interest/documentation are heavily featured in the hobby and, although it may sometimes involve trespassing onto private property, this is not always the case. Urbex (or urban exploration may also be referred to as draining (an alternate form of urbexing where drains are explored), urban spelunking, urban rock climbing, urban caving, roof-topping, or building hacking.

Length contraction is the phenomenon of a decrease in length of an object as measured by an observer who is traveling at any non-zero velocity relative to the object. For standard objects, this effect is negligible at everyday speeds. As the magnitude of the velocity approaches the speed of light, the effect becomes dominant.

“Mid snow and hail they shorten sail;

The bark blows 'neath the blast;

And as the billows rise and break,

She's borne to leeward fast. The straining ship drives through the seas,

Close lying to the wind;

The spray, on all where it doth fall,

Becomes an icy wind.”-- "Wreck of the Seguntum"

By James Kennard Jr. (1849)

I wasnt sure how best to make this the caliber the guy on deviantart had it, so i kind of went in the middle.

_______________________________

The KX212 is a sleek, comfortable carbine designed for close quarters combat and personal security detail. Engineers at Kong used high quality polymer for the receiver and stock, this keeps the KX212 light and very durable.

The receiver is rigged with a recoil dampener behind the bolt-this paired with the foregrip and added weight of the suppressor provides for extreme controlability, even in the full automatic fire mode.

A left side hinged folding and telescoping stock with a rubberized no slip canted cheek rest provides maximum comfort for the user.

The weapon can be chambered in .300 Blackout or 7.3X40mm [105 grain] (shown here) ammunition-available in either Supersonic or Subsonic. Subsonic ammunition paired with a 45 round free fall polymer magazine and QD suppressor makes the KX212 both silent and deadly.

This robust carbine also features a Kalashnikov style bolt, charging handle, and gas piston system.

An exposed CCW threaded barrel bolt allows for the user to remove the barrel for maintenance or to exchange for different lengths without disassembling the receiver.

The bolt release lever is located just forward of the user's trigger finger allowing for quick magazine changes and easy operation.

Topped off with a custom QD stubby grip, EoTech XPS3 Holographic, and finished in Kong two tone Honey/Charcoal.

Shortened FAMAS chambered in 6.8mm.

Comes with a 40 round polymer magazine, specialized grips with an integrated flashlight, RIS, and a suppressor.

"What is this?! An... an - an upload?!"

 

Yes, yes, I know what you're thinking! I'm back! I've been editing through my Florence photos (managed to shorten my favourites list to just 1,000, yes!)

I had the most amazing two weeks - it really was fantastic. And as ever, I couldn't possibly have asked for better company. We watched sunset over the Arno, climbed to the top of every tower in the city, saw almost every museum and church, sat in on a service at San Miniato al Monte then watched the night fall and the city illuminate, spent a night watching an open-air performance of Romeo and Juliet in an atmospheric private gardens in the cover of darkness, walked miles and miles, cycled the city walls of Lucca, explored to Fiesole, and took an impromptu trip to Pisa (to see the surprisingly small leaning tower!).

We saw David (who was surprisingly large, and breathtakingly perfect!), the Uffizi, palaces, chapels, and so much beauty and ornateness that I almost can't comprehend it was real. And that doesn't even begin to describe the trip!

 

I have kept up to date with my 99 days project. If you'd like to take a look, check it out here.

 

I also had to begin a new blogspot page as I'd filled my other two up entirely. This time I'll make it my mission not to upload the photos directly to the page as it can't handle it, but use URLs from other hosting sites instead. See it here! I'll upload my Florence photos (or a small selection of them) when I'm done in photoshop!

 

Best wishes and have a great summer. I hope to fall back in love with being behind the camera, but also being in front of it, as I used to adore self portrait therapy but have simply felt disinterested towards it for a long time now (thank you, kind A-levels!). If anyone has any rediscovering inspiration tips, you know what the comment box is for! And I'm sorry if you don't like being tagged, I simply picked a few flickr friends or those I admire as a way of apologising for absence and saying hello, I suppose :)

99 days of summer

Fall, leaves, fal, die, flowers, away,

Lengthen night and shorten day,

Every leaf speaks bliss to me

Fluttering from the autumn tree.

I shall smile when wreaths of snow

Blossom where the rose should grow.

I shall sing when night’s decay

Ushers in a drearier day (Emily Brontë)

Ada Ciganlija, colloquially shortened to Ada, is a river island that has artificially been turned into a peninsula, located in the Sava River's course through central Belgrade, the capital of Serbia. The name can also refer to the adjoining artificial Sava Lake and its beach. To take advantage of its central location, over the past few decades, it was turned into an immensely popular recreational zone, most notable for its beaches and sports facilities, which, during summer seasons, can have over 100,000 visitors daily and up to 300,000 visitors over the weekend. Due to this popularity, Ada Ciganlija has been commonly nicknamed "More Beograda" ("Belgrade's Sea"), which was officially accepted as an advertising slogan in 2008, stylised as More BeogrADA.

 

Formerly an island, Ada Ciganlija is now an elongated peninsula, stretching for 6 km from west to east and 700 m from north to south at its widest, and covering an area of 2.7 km2. The entire Ada Ciganlija ecological complex, which stretches into the municipality of Novi Beograd, covers an area of 8 km2, including the islands of Ada Ciganlija and Ada Međica, waterways between the two Adas and Sava Lake, and some of Makiš itself. Sava Lake, formerly a branch of the Sava, was turned into a lake with two dams, while the remaining section on the northeast was turned into Čukarica Bay. There is another small lake on Ada Ciganlija itself, known as Ada Safari.

Saint Valentine's Day (commonly shortened to Valentine's Day) is an annual holiday held on February 14 celebrating love and affection between intimate companions. The holiday is named after one or more early Christian martyrs named Valentine and was established by Pope Gelasius I in 496 AD. It is traditionally a day on which lovers express their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering confectionery, and sending greeting cards (known as "valentines"). The holiday first became associated with romantic love in the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in the High Middle Ages, when the tradition of courtly love flourished.

Modern Valentine's Day symbols include the heart-shaped outline, doves, and the figure of the winged Cupid. Since the 19th century, handwritten valentines have largely given way to mass-produced greeting cards.

... somewhere in Newcastle upon Tyne ...

 

Newcastle upon Tyne (often shortened to Newcastle) is a city and metropolitan borough of Tyne and Wear, in North East England. Situated on the north bank of the River Tyne, the city developed in the area that was the location of the Roman settlement called Pons Aelius, though it owes its name to the castle built in 1080, by Robert II, Duke of Normandy, the eldest son of William the Conqueror.

All Saints' Day (in the Roman Catholic Church officially the Solemnity of All Saints and also called All Hallows or Hallowmas[3]), often shortened to All Saints, is a solemnity celebrated on 1 November by parts of Western Christianity, and on the first Sunday after Pentecost in Eastern Christianity, in honour of all the saints, known and unknown.

 

In Western Christian theology, the day commemorates all those who have attained the beatific vision in Heaven. It is a national holiday in many historically Catholic countries. In the Roman Catholic Church and many Anglican churches, the next day, All Souls' Day, specifically commemorates the departed faithful who have not yet been purified and reached heaven. Christians celebrate All Saints' Day and All Souls' Day in the fundamental belief that there is a prayerful spiritual bond between those in the state of grace who have burned and are either being purified in purgatory or are in heaven (the 'Church Suffering' and the 'church triumphant', respectively), and the 'church militant' who are the living. Other Christian traditions define, remember and respond to the saints in different ways; for example, in the Methodist Church, "saints who have helped extend and enliven God's kingdom" are remembered—that is—the entire Church universal and those significant to a particular local congregation.[2]
