posts about nature.
this long weekend i was staying at my parent’s place. here are some impressions, both from my parent’s garden, as well as from a bike tour to olfen.
almost three weeks ago, while being in oldenburg, i visited the schlossgarten. a second time; the last time being around six months before. this time, several flowers started to flourish, turning the park into a colorful place, even though the part of the garden featuring the flowers i photographed last years was still deserted. enjoy some impressions.
today i went for a short walk to the irchelpark next to the campus where i’m working on. here are some impressions:
another panoramic view on the lake:
a panorama of most of the scenes in the previous pictures:
well, i took these photos already in september, but i didn’t had time to upload them until now. so, here you’ll find some photos of the schlossgarten in oldenburg.
on thursday, we made an excursion to the open air museum ballenberg, which shows old buildings from all over switzerland, from centuries ago, together with animals, lifestyle and lots of traditions, including making of cheese and chocolate. this resulted in a lot of pictures, some of which can be seen here.
anyway. it was a really great one-day vacation. thanks a lot!
on the way to sundance canyon.
to reach the sundance canyon, one has to walk a bit through beautiful nature.
the first picture still belongs to the way to the canyon. the canyon itself is going upwards, a small river is floating downwards. it’s pretty steep, as you can see. when one reaches the top, one gets a pretty neat view.
on the way back.
the way back featured several other great views.
finally, we reached the banff hot springs, which are not in use anymore to ensure the living of the banff springs snail. this is a kind of snail which basically only lives at exactly this place.
the banff springs hotel.
the bow falls.
another thing one can see from there are the bow falls, a pretty low (just a few meters) waterfall.
well, last but not least, a really big thanks to all involved in making this trip possible!
sometimes, complaining helps: this morning, it was finally snowing here. after nearly half a year of waiting, i finally got my snow. here are some impressions. the first one is the same place as usual:
some less and more snowy impressions:
this is how the world is supposed to look today:
well, some (usual) tree pictures:
