This morning´s walkies was absolutely magic! I walked through an amazing atmosphere with heavy morning mist, which lifted after some time with the sun finally breaking through, lightening up everything like a beacon, enhancing colours and details – it really was breathtaking. I am no professional photographer – at moments like this I wish I were, to capture nature´s beauty more adequately. But still – the joy of such days, especially when you can hardly believe what you see and are at awe with each step you take, that joy sure lasts.
here again some new pictures from my recent walkies which were just wonderful – I enjoy the autumnal colors of nature, the crisp fresh air and the wildlife sightings along the way. Accompanied with one of the three adorable Alaskans, I cannot wish for better saturday mornings. 2 hours of steady and quick walking – obviously with some photo stops (and some cuddles) – and the weekend can start.
Today, I was lucky to walk with a gorgeous, friendly and…ahem…lively purebred Alaskan Malamute.
Our local shelter presently has 3 of these remarkable dogs from a dog breeder who had to resolve his business. It was a joy to spend the morning with Hardy outdoors, and he sure is very very charming. It´s the first time I encountered an Alaskan Malamute that close and I really am absolutely enchanted.
Maybe next Saturday I bring my running shoes and do him a bit more justice by speeding the “walkies” up a bit…gee!…haw!… 😉
happy new year to you! I hope you stepped into 2017 with a fresh mind and healthy attitude. New beginnings, new chances coming up to make life more interesting, more creative and more inspiring 😉
My creative endeavours lately included lovely walkies where I took some new pics for my ongoing series “snaps transformed”. Have a look and tell me what you think. I stayed true to my priorities here: take a quick snap of what you fancy without too much thought, pick those photos you like most and just zoom them through some fun transformations. For me, it´s always a real good tool to get back into a more serious and regular creative routine. So here they come.
I´ve been out and about again, enjoying outdoors. Here are some of the snaps I transformed.
The first part is from a nice town in north-western Germany, Oldenburg, with a really well-preserved castle and a lovely shopping area, it has a slightly nostalgic “country-side-townish” atmosphere with cute little oldfashioned cafés and nice arts´n-crafts-shops. An enjoyable place.
I took these out in the country, during my various “wonderous walkies”.
