Golden carpet event. Near the start of yesterday's hike in one of our favorite valleys...
#SilentSunday #LandscapePhotography #NaturePhotography

View of a vast meadow in the flat valley, surrounded by forest and mountains, some wooden huts in the background. The high density of (mainly) yellow flowers and dandelion seed balls have turned the meadow into a yellow carpet. A coming thunderstorm is starting to form dramatic clouds...

Hey friends! I'm just driving home from a conference and think back about a nice summer hike we did.
At this spot it got really hot and we were just glad that we were on the way back down and not up.
Not just due to the heat but also for having this view in frond of us.

A serene mountain landscape is depicted in this image, showcasing a winding path cutting through a lush grassy area. Towering trees line the path, leading the viewer's eye towards majestic mountains in the background. The sky above is a clear blue, dotted with fluffy white clouds. The peaceful scene exudes a sense of tranquility and natural beauty, inviting viewers to imagine themselves walking along the path and soaking in the stunning surroundings.

A Red-Tailed Hawk disturbed in the act of ripping apart a pigeon on top of a window air conditioning unit. The hawk is puffed up and looking alarmed directly at the camera. Pointed roofs of Harlem brownstones with red brickwork are across the street, and a taller apartment building is on the right. The green tops of two trees are in front of the buildings.

Yesterday's evening hike... grand & far views, and looking much warmer than it was...
#LandscapePhotography #NaturePhotography #Photography

A path is leading through a wild mountain meadow with lots of flowers towards a group of spruces in the not too far distance. Yellow evening light is illuminating a section of the meadow, creating a glow and hard contrast with the shadowy area in the foreground. In the far back, the western flank of the Ammergauer Alps, incl. foot hills and region around Füssen. A layer of clouds is hovering close above the mountains, above that serene clear blue sky.
Panoramic view across mountain meadows with lots of flowers, patches of forests and fields in the foot hills of the Alps in the Allgäu region. A scattering of small villages and hamlets here and there. A layer of clouds is hovering close above the mountains in the distance, above that serene clear blue sky. In the foreground, yellow evening light is illuminating a section of the meadow, creating a bright glow and hard contrast with the shadowy areas even closer.

Hey friends, here's one more from our 1st-may-walk. I really like the perspective. Maybe I'll even print it.
But.. I'd love to see the spot in really great light, like mornings or late in the day.
But the photo is as it is and I hope you enjoy the view with me.

A picturesque scene of a tree in a field is captured in this image. The tree is surrounded by lush green grass and under a clear blue sky with fluffy white clouds. The dominant colors in the image are white and a hint of olive green. The tree stands tall and majestic, with a dense canopy of leaves. In the foreground, there is a field of grass with yellow flowers adding a pop of color to the landscape. The image conveys a sense of peace and tranquility, with nature in all its beauty on display.
