Die #ZecheCarl im #Essen​er Stadtteil #Altenessen war ein #SteinkohlenBergwerk, das - zum #Kulturzentrum umgebaut - seit knapp 40 Jahren ein abwechslungsreiches Kulturprogramm anbietet und ein überregionales Highlight der Essener #Kulturszene darstellt. Jeden ersten Freitag im Monat findet eine 80er/90er Party statt. Das Bild vom 01.12.2023 zeigt mich vor solch einer Party in dem angrenzendem Restaurant.

Das Bild zeigt eine Tür aus angerosteten Stahl, in die ein kunstvolles Muster aus mehreren  Schilfpflanzen geschnitten wurde, das durch den durchscheinenden Schnee hinter der Tür einen viel besseren Kontrast (wie ein Scherenschnitt) zeigt, als zu  jeder anderen Jahreszeit möglich.

The picture shows a door made of rusted steel, in which an artistic pattern of several reeds has been cut, which shows a much better contrast (like a silhouette) through the translucent snow behind the door than is possible at any other time of year.

Great Egret

Here is a great egret (Ardea alba) that I saw among the reeds on the bayou at the Sabine National Wildlife Refuge in Louisiana.

"Visit a pond or coastal marsh and look for an all-white bird—slightly smaller than a Great Blue Heron, with black legs and a yellow bill. It may be wading slowly or standing stock-still, peering intently at the water as it searches for fish. If you live outside of the species’ breeding range, you may still see Great Egrets in late summer as they move about widely before heading to their wintering grounds." -

#photo #photography #photographer #photographylovers #bird #birdwatching #birdphotography #birdsofmastodon #GreatEgret

This egret stands still among brown and green reeds facing to the right. The bird is completely white except for a long bright orange beak. Its long white neck forms the classic "S" shape. The tops of its black legs are partially visible. There is brown flowing water at the bottom of the frame.

"Great Egrets are tall, long-legged wading birds with long, S-curved necks and long, dagger-like bills. In flight, the long neck is tucked in and the legs extend far beyond the tip of the short tail. All feathers on Great Egrets are white. Their bills are yellowish-orange, and the legs black." -

Skimmers will skim.

Here's another photo of a black skimmer (Rynchops niger) skimming along the shallow for food. The bird looks like it doesn't have eyes, but a closer look reveals a black eye among the black feathers. It makes me think a bit about blind creatures in a sci-fi movie who hunt by sound.

I took this photograph at Gulfport, Mississippi.

"Although the Black Skimmer is active throughout the day, it is largely crepuscular (active in the dawn and dusk) and even nocturnal. Its use of touch to catch fish lets it be successful in low light or darkness." -

#photo #photography #photographer #photographylovers #bird #birdwatching #birdphotography #birdsofmastodon #BlackSkimmer

This black skimmer flies from right to left, its left side is visible. The bird's long thick black and orange beak is open with the black tip of the longer, lower mandible cutting through the water below. The bird's feathers from this angle are mostly white.  There is a black patch on the upper half of its head that leaves its black left eye almost invisible. The top of its wings and body are black and it has a short white tail.  Its short legs and webbed feet are orange, but the talons on its toes are black.

"A medium-sized tern like seabird with very long wings and an outsized bill in which the lower mandible is much longer than the upper. Starkly black above and white below, with black-and-red bill and orange-red legs. Juveniles are brownish above, with pale-edged wing covert feathers." -

Good morning, friends. 🌻🌻🌻

3 December 2023

I kind of slept it this morning. Oh, I got up and delt with the dogs, but then I kicked back in my recliner and slept until about 9:30. Ben just came in, then turned around and left again. You know, he's been with us since he was six weeks old, now he is 15 years old. Imagine that, if you will, his whole life, everything that he experienced is with us. The quality of his life depends on us, it's something that I take seriously. He brings a lot to our lives, but we are his whole world, and Charlie of course.

“Dogs have given us their absolute all. We are the center of their universe. We are the focus of their love and faith and trust. They serve us in return for scraps. It is without a doubt the best deal man has ever made.” - Roger Caras

These are some yellow flowers that I saw on a trail in Georgia. The showy rattleboxes (Crotalaria spectabilis) were growing amid dried brown grass, a fallen tree, and a stump.  The contrast of the bright yellow flowers and green leaves against the drab background caught my eye.

Friday morning was delightful at one of my favorite locations to walkabout with my camera. The low clouds obscuring the tops of the mountains. The dusting of snow clinging to the cliffs and tree branches. And an occasional visit from the morning sunlight as a break in the clouds passed by to the east.

Welp, the snow's stopped falling.

We had to run a few errands in town today, so I took my camera with me to capture the wintery scenes.

The Lake District was totally buried in snow. 5,000 homes have been left without power, cars have been dumped where they stand, and people have had to seek alternative shelter.

The image depicts a snowy park with a group of people walking through the snow. There are three people in the scene, with one person closer to the left side, another person in the middle, and the third person on the right side. They are walking under a stone archway, which is covered in snow.

In the background, there are two benches, one located near the left side of the scene and the other closer to the center. The snowy landscape and the stone archway create a serene and picturesque atmosphere.
The image features a calm river flowing through a town, surrounded by houses and trees. The river appears to be frozen, with snow covering the ground and the nearby buildings. The scene is captured in black and white, giving it a serene and timeless atmosphere. The town seems to be situated near a bridge, which adds to the picturesque setting.

The Autumn sun hangs low in the sky shining through the branches and casting shadows on a paved woodland walk. Golden brown autumn leaves cover the path edges and around the trees. There are probably more leaves on the ground than remain on the branches.
A paved path in autumn with trees and dense bushes either side. All the leaves have fallen from the trees and their branches reach into the foggy sky. The path curves off into the distance.
Light snow covers a woodland path that leads off into the distance with a set of footprints visible. The trees have lost most of their leaves and the branches have a light dusting of snow. Golden brown autumn leaves can be seen on a few remaining branches and peeking through the snow around the tree trunks.

Photography. A color photo of a fairytale castle with several towers, in the snow on a mountain peak. An ice-blue lake and impressive mountains can be seen in the background.
Neuschwanstein Castle was originally only intended as a remote residence for its builder, King Ludwig II, but was opened to the public shortly after his death in 1886, although it was never fully completed. Despite its remote location, it is visited by one and a half million tourists every year and is now the most famous castle in the world. Among other things, it served as the model for the castle in Disneyland.

Today's historic #photo of the day: Diesel #locomotive BL30 in AN Green and Gold livery at Peterborough, SA, April 11 1985.

Peterborough is 230km north of Adelaide in the mid north of South Australia. When this pic was taken, it was a triple-gauge station on the transcontinental standard gauge line, the northern terminus of a broad gauge line to Adelaide via Burra, and the southern terminus of a narrow gauge line from Eurelia that had once run to Quorn, Port Augusta and Alice Springs.

A side-on view of a boxcab diesel locomotive in dark green livery with yellow details including a yellow stripe along the roofline running the length of the unit and a full-height yellow panel a metre or two wide a little off centre.  A dark green or black stylised AN logo is in the yellow panel.  The ground in the foreground is dry and a blue sky is above.

The city of Lisbon lay before me as I looked out the window of my apartment. We had quite a view from the living room window, so one night I made this time blend photo of the city.

It was a chilly start to the morning. Frost on the ground and a thin layer of ice capped the pond.

Green grass blades all tipped with white frost are an interesting backdrop for a brown frosted leaf. The leaf has a few holes but the frost traces the shape of the veins and also give a white edge to the whole leaf.

Hunker down.

I saw these three Eurasian collared doves (Streptopelia decaocto) hunkered down near a treetop, late on Thanksgiving Day at a small town in Georgia. When I noticed them and realized that it made a pretty good composition. Liked both the color and monochrome versions of this photograph but opted for black and white.
