One has to literally take a very close look to be able to see the beauty and the delicacy of these little fellows. Or use a macro lens.

Crossroads

Crossroads in Dresden Germany - 31.11.2011

Dresden, Germany, October 2011

Finally decided to make an archive of my many thousands of pictures on my computer. So, you can imagine the Weasel busy scattering in old files, whiskers covered in virtual dust, from time to time dragging out, with a mine of victory on the face, some “treasures”, prepping them up in Photoshop an posting them.

This out of focus and against the light picture caught my eye and got me thinking that can make something out of it, cause it’s so atmospheric, blurry and yet still has a lot to tell.

Magic Light

Filtered light throught the trees in the forest in Tharandt, Saxony, Germany

Tharandt, Germany, January 2017

One of the best lights for taking pictures is in frozen cold, but sunny winter days. In such days, with clear blue skies, yet loads of snow laying on the ground, the real beauty of winter, in all its splendor is revealed. All the usual shades of brownish and grey reveal that they are actually composed of myriad of other tones, from yellow to violet, only waiting for the gentle sun rays to put them in a better light.
