A Water Point for Livestock
Thanks to the cattle coming here to drink I could get close to the water. The shore of this pond would have been otherwise completely covered with vegetation. Another superb mixture of water and trees.

A Wild River
Somehow that is how we like our rivers to be, with large round pebbles and clear water running around them in countless streams. I am not sure this one fully qualifies as "wild" but I certainly appreciate the absence of human traces.

Rough Surfaces
They may be rough but so they are also more pleasing to the eye

The Aare Gorge
The place I visited this afternoon has probably caused a significant number of schoolboys and schoolgirls to want to become geologists. The last time I have been here was with kids and no cameras, just like most adult parents I saw today.

In the Forest
When running in the forest by a sunny weather, I luckily always find many occasions to take a break. These are from a few hours ago. All three pictures have in common that their beauty is the result of foresters.

The stump of a tree standing out in a clearing where the sun can reach the forest floor and generate much growth. Another stump disposed as a bench. A last stump used by some small animals as a kitchen table.

There is not a single flower in this series and I hope to demonstrate here that nature's beauty does not always depend on them.

That day the small flying elves sadly didn't show up
A pristine natural place that neither humans nor our cattles have troubled in a long while. From last summer above Habkern. Probably a tad underexposed but I liked the resulting shades.

Solomon's Seals
Over the years the solomon seals have become my little stars of the forest, with large leaves catching the light I can always spot them from a distance. Unlike many other plants, they are often solitary so they will stand out even in the shade of comparatively huge trees. They feel so light, as if flying all the time.

More of a favorite photographic topic of mine, trees and their many shapes. All these pictures were shot in the Bonstetten Park in Thun.
