This week’s DP photo challenge theme is Tiny.
We were driving from Annecy, France towards Switzerland.
Shortly after we crossed the border, we reached a cable stayed pedestrian cable stayed footbridge of very old construction.
From the middle of the footbridge, we looked down the valley with a running stream; it was lush, with a lot of tiny leaves during the Spring time.
The light shone on the leaves; giving a fresh and very green look.
This week’s photo challenge is H2O.
Photographing fountains is my favorite too.
The first one is a picture taken in the peace memorial park in Hiroshima.
I have adopted a slow shutter speed and a shallow depth of field.
The second photo was taken in Geneva, Switzerland.
I must admit my main focus was on the trees and the shadows although the fountain is an indispensable part of the photo.
This week’s photo challenge is Edge.
Here are a few shots taken at the edge of the lake Geneve near Morges.
The flowers at the edges of the lake were also lovely.
Surely, there are people like me, relaxing near to the water edge.
These are wonderful views to be enjoyed.
We stayed somewhere on the hills overlooking lake Geneva, Switzerland.
To stay healthy, we did a walk about after an early breakfast.
Along the trail, there were some fox holes. Unfortunately, I have no luck of seeing any foxes.
The sun has come up and shone through the leaves. As usual, I took a photo of the light through the leaves.
I like trees in a open plain and was glad to take this photo.
Another good morning I woke up to, just fantastic!
The vineyard overlooking the Lake of Geneve, Switzerland, a very harmonious environment, is an UNESCO site.
The Lavaux Vineyard Terraces, stretching for about 30 km along the south-facing northern shores of Lake Geneva from the Chateau de Chillon to the eastern outskirts of Lausanne in the Vaud region, cover the lower slopes of the mountainside between the villages and the lake. Although there is some evidence that vines were grown in the area in Roman times, the present vine terraces can be traced back to the 11th century, when Benedictine and Cistercian monasteries controlled the area. It is an outstanding example of a centuries-long interaction between people and their environment, developed to optimize local resources so as to produce a highly valued wine that has always been important to the economy.
Our Spring is still cold ( by our standards).
Here are a couple of photos taken some years ago.
It looks as if there are two seasons there in the picture; Winter on the hills and Spring in the valley below.
Maybe the snow there never melts, even in Summer.
Spring and Autumn are the seasons I like best.
Summer is the month I feel most mobile and energetic.
Winter is the season for my hibernation!
How delightful it is to walk around the garden by the lake.
Flowers and green leaves everywhere, one complementing the other.
Clouds are my favorite subject of photography.
Here is a picture taken at Geneva, overlooking the lake with some extraordinary clouds at a relatively low altitude.
I have turned it into a black and white to make it look more moody.
