Winter hasn't finished yet... (follow-up)

Beneath the top of the Feldberg, the highest mountain in the Black Forest
and also of Germany outside the Alps; with an elevation of 1,493 metres.

Recent Tuesday.

German & British teenagers wanna have fun.

In blue bin bags.

In the snow.

I hope this was my last chapter and encounter with German winter in the first half of year 2013... ;-)


  1. Ha ha, das war lustig!
    Great pics, Uwe! Boyd and girls want to have fun in the German winter!
    Wish u a great begin of Frühling!!!

  2. Vielen Dank Márcia, für deinen lieben Kommentar. Je mehr du deine Kommentare bei mir auf Deutsch scheibst, desto mehr kommt die Erinnerung bei dir zurück. "Übung macht den Meister" wie ein altes deutsches Sprichwort zu sagen pflegt...
    Hab' keine Angst vor Fehlern! Nobody is perfect. Are you nobody??? I'm not.
    Gruß, Uwe.

  3. Thanks a lot ladies for your comments. It is not often that I can spend my lunchbreak on the highest mountain of the Black Forest and take photos of boys and girls having fun in the snow, so it was a welcome change to my daily routine.

  4. Hi

    I enjoyed this post very much. When I was a kid, there was a cuckoo clock in my house. It was a small one. I would often see cuckoo clocks here and there but recently I seldom find one around us.

    And thank you so much for your fascinating crocus post!! I watched your images again and again and was totally charmed. The color purple is unbelievably beautiful. It looks like the color comes from another dimension.
    I wish I could take such fantastic photos like yours!

  5. Thank you so much, Sapphire, for your kind words. Obviously traditional cuckoo clocks seem to be out of fashion nowadays. I have the same memories like you when I was a kid: In my rememberance there were much more cuckoo clocks here and there around me, but nowadays you don't see as much as 30 to 40 years ago.

    I can't help for the fantastic colours Mother Nature creates. As an ambitious photographer I try to perceive my environment, try to notice the beauty (or ugliness, peculiarity or structures) in either big or small items, landscapes, people (I don't post very often here on my blog) or creations of (what many people call) god - and then I try to make the best out of it with my photo equipment. Passion and joy are my allies! And in combination with a profund experience they are more important than an expensive equipment.
    Passion and joy is what I can see / "read" in your photos as well. And at the end...
    ...nothing else matters. Be a bit more self-confident, Sapphire! Your whole photo blog including many, many great photos is a shining gem amidst a sea of grey pebbles. And: don't compare your work with the work of others. Having an individual handwriting, developing an individual and distinctive style is worth more than striving for perfection.

    And now go out / even go outside the envelope and take more photos.. :-)


  6. There seem to be so much fun in blue-bing-bag sliding. I enjoyed cardboard box sliding at Heijyo Palace Ruins in Nara when my children were young, and I’d like to do it with my grandchildren, too. On the snow slopes, vinyl bag is a good choice in terms of waterproof.
