Nothing exciting, just a walk in the park, but Munich's English Garden is a very big park with wonderful old trees. I read a bit of Peter Wohlleben's book "The Secret Life of Trees: What they feel, how they communicate - discovering a hidden world." Although I didn't feel completely comfortable with his attributing sensibilities, emotions, and memory to trees, I have nevertheless started seeing human features and poses in these venerable specimens. I attribute it to my fantasy.
A sunny day sandwiched in between cold and wet ones - it didn't take long to decide to get in the car and go somewhere, anywhere. The Eibsee, a small lake at the foot of Germany's highest mountain, the Zugspitz, was our choice. The 100 km drive didn't take long and we looked forward to a 8-km walk around the lake. The sun had been shining long enough to melt the surface of the snow and ice on the path. It was water on ice and felt threateningly slippery. Especially with a quality camera in my hand. We settled for a smaller portion of the path that was dry.
We got a few shots of the mountains with a bright blue sky, then as it clouded over I started looking at the ground more than the sky and became fascinated by the trees and their roots which seemed to be clutching the rocks and boulders as if hanging on for dear life. I have lots of pictures in my gallery "Roots and Rocks".
And here are a few more shots from our day:
... is a space for every day shots, day outings or longer trips, and those photos that are simply documenting the what and the where. I hope I will have some hikes and bike rides to write about - and maybe some longer bike tours again? There will also be car trips and trips by plane, for sure. Stay tuned!
