Still Standing

Instead of feeding a stream of pics from the last cloud/rock session, now would be a good time to throw some variety up on the wall.

I’ll reach back a few years or more for the next few posts.  Long time watchers will recognize a few, but hopefully there’s a surprise or two.

The images will be a few of my favorites, likely focused on landscape shots, as that’s the direction my photography has gone since moving here to Oregon early last year.


A neat little shed in the middle of a grass field.  The shed has seen better days, not weathering the elements as well as the Alpspitze, the highest point in Germany, in the background.

Traveling through Bavaria, wooden sheds dot the countryside.  Truly ubiquitous, they are spaced in seemingly impossible closeness.  A small field of approximately one acre (4,000m²) may have 6-8 of these sheds scattered about.

I am sure they serve a purpose, but in the past few years, I have never seen a farmer actually use one.

But they make for interesting focal points.

For those keeping track, that is the Zugspitze, the highest point in Germany, in the background.


Lots and lots of schnee (snow), whether you are here in Europe, on the east coast of the US or facing the greatest avalanche danger ever recorded in Colorado.

Lots of schnee.

But until it’s damaging, it’s absolutely beautiful.  I love it.  Even when I’m having to spend two hours shoveling.

This past Tuesday, looking down at the village of Colmberg, Germany from the overlook at the Colmberg Castle.

Here at home, this same storm dumped 5″ of snow, which promptly melted off.  And made room for the new 5″+ that fell on Christmas Eve.

The same snow that will make tomorrow’s bicycle commute to work very entertaining.
