Walkies with some views – snaps transformed encore

Hi there – long time no see, I know.

Took quite a few walks recently, and enjoyed taking some pics & playing around a bit with the colors and structures. I was especially enchanted by the sunlight shimmering through the leaves, creating a subtle luminous and dreamy atmosphere which I found incredibly calming.

There is a new mixed media painting in the works, which I might post as work-in-progress update in the near future…we´ll see how it goes.

Hope you all enjoy the glorious spring weather.

Magic morning mist walkies

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.

Some fallen trees

These days, a lot of fallen trees caught my attention. Even though sad that the recent storm killed so many of them, they have not lost their beauty which I enjoyed capturing by camera.

These pics mostly were taken during my recent evening walkies with one of my favorite four-pawed buddies, Rudi (yes, he is a dog event though he looks like and feels like a big fluffy teddy bear).

Autumnal wolf-walkies: nice views and crisp weather

So,

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.

Dramatic skies

Hi,

just a quick something to enter the weekend – a pic I took on one of my recent walkies.

The weather is rather unruly presently with an autumnal atmosphere one day, followed by highsummer temperatures the next… ah well.

I started a new mixed media piece where I plan to use exotically coloured fabric and metal, probably again some paperscraps / natural fibres,  as well as using some new colour printing techniques ..so far it´s fun. Will post some w-i-p soon.

If you are interested – I put up a website where most of my artwork is stuffed in in an organized way (except photography, I´ll keep that out of there, at least for now). I will continue with this blog, though, more or less in the same fashion.

So this is it: artworks-by-cris.com

musher-walkies

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!… 😉

 

Lovely walkies last Saturday – took some snaps…

Hiya,

hope you enjoy summer – we do ;-). Did not “transform” these photos but will add to the ongoing series some of these days.

Am still working on my scotsman clay figurine and on a painting, will show some work-in-progress-pics soon.
