On the day of the apocalypse I want to dance on clouds and watch Earth burst into flames.

Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.
- Rabindranath Tagore

Just stopping by to check whether Google+ has improved...
Have a colorful weekend!

The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

-- Robert Frost

Have a great weekend everyone!

There are still no cherry blossoms or anything like that over here, so this little spring awakening scene from the nearby forest will have to do. Enjoy your weekend!

Oh, you could jump into the water, +nomad dimitri - the picture has been taken during sunset in summer. I just enhanced the blue tones in post-processing. :-)

So, I really wanted to take one of those notorious rice cake shots for #ChrystaRaeDay tomorrow, but, well.. what can I say.. When I was finished setting up my camera and everything, there were no rice cakes left. So, I'm really sorry, +Chrysta Rae, I really tried! But you don't expect me to fight for food with the tazmanian devil, do you?! (Hey, at least I used some textures!) :-D

Remember that super-expensive, super-boring photo that got auctioned off last year for $4.3 million? ("Rhein II" by Andreas Gursky - see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rhein_II)

Well, today's your lucky day. I'm offering one of mine for a G+anniversary special super bonus promotional offer. You can buy the picture below for just $2.22 million! Yes, what a bargain, right? 

I call it "Trees XLII", and you know what? It even comes with free shipping! And the icing on the cake: If your check arrives by Monday, I'm even going to remove that ugly watermark. Leaves you speechless, eh?

What are you waiting for?! 

(Do I have to wave my "sarcasm" sign for anybody?)

Drat! I am a couple of dollars short for your asking price. Now what do I do? Hehe.

I find it rather hilarious that people with a 0.0006 success rate for their Google+ posts want to charge attendees of the Google+ conference some 350 bucks in order to educate them how to be successful on Google+.
Let me save you some money: kiss Google's ass and you'll be successful on Google+. There, I just saved you 350 bucks. :-P

Alright, here's one just for fun. This was my entry for "Lace" in the March Photography Scavenger Hunt. I had too much wine, and the nerd in me took over... Happy Easter!

Thanks, +Allison Wright. Indeed, I wouldn't normally take pictures of lace. By the way, for those who are not familiar with the hunt, you can see the full lace album here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/photos/113977984500465768287/albums/5729018726422973297

Starry, starry night.
Paint your palette blue and grey,
Look out on a springtime's day,
With eyes that know the darkness in my soul.
Shadows on the hills,
Sketch the trees and the daffodils,
Catch the breeze and the nightly chills,
In colors on the not so snowy land.

(Sorry for the lyrics changes, Don McLean...)
I just wanted to test how much could be done in Photoshop, and as it turns out, the answer is: a lot. This image was actually shot yesterday in the afternoon (that's the sun right there) but I wanted to modify a few aspects, and then one thing led to another and.. well... now the image is as dark as it is outside.. :-)
Sleep tight, everyone!

I appears that I must give up my hopes for more snow this winter. Sigh
Whenever I tell people that I want more snow and cold and all that, I get weird reactions. But how can you not like the sight and smell of freshly fallen snow?
I guess you can call me Smilla...

Here we get long summers of temperatures rising above 50 Celsius which makes us long for winters and how I wish they would stay longer - though we dont get any snow here...

Since many rice cakes will be devoured today in honor of +Chrysta Rae and #ChrystaRaeDay, I feel it is my duty to issue a general warning about the side-effects of these little thingies that, for some reason, are classified as food.

DO NOT IGNORE the early signs of os sarmenis (medical term for rice mouth); very typical: dry mouth with yucky taste. IMMEDIATELY initiate prophylactic measures. The safest procedure is to disinfect your mouth with an appropriate amount of alcohol (antiseptic).

Remember: safety first, even on this special day! Cheers!

P.S.: Am I the only one who actually enjoys eating the rice cakes? :-o

This is great!
Heed the warning, people
Heed the warning

(Actually I do like the snack size rice cakes, certain flavors anyway)
