So then. July 2020 is the month of “seasons” for LAPC.
Spring is a resurgence of colour and revitalization of spirit, with more light of day and the reappearance of flowering trees and plants. In languages with which I’m most familiar, the word “spring” appears as:
- Chinese: 春季
- French: le printemps
- German: der Frühling
- Spanish: la primavera
This image is from the road between Radebeul and Radeberg, north of Dresden and among rotating wind turbines in the German federal state of Saxony. Small towns and massive fields of grass or grain tile the landscape.
The following image is a classic view of my adopted town of Heidelberg, Germany, from the Philosopher’s Walk facing south over the Old Bridge, the Neckar river, and onto Königstuhl hill with the castle ruins at centre. I lived here for two years for science work.
Back “home“, ten months later.
From the castle ruins, the following is a reverse view of Heidelberg facing northwest towards the Old Town, the Old Bridge, and Philosopher’s Walk on Heiligenberg hill (at right). It’s early spring and many deciduous trees remain bare, but not for long. And one more thing, I miss roaming this town’s narrow cobblestone streets.
The following image is of Werdenfelser Land in morning light from the regional train between Garmisch-Partenkirchen and Mittenwald. At centre is the Karwendelbahn cable car from the town of Mittenwald up to the Karwendel mountains. There are many easy hiking trails in the area, doubling as cross-country ski-trails in winter.
I made all photos above with a Canon EOS6D mark1 over consecutive (northern) springs from 2014 to 2018 inclusive. Alle Fotoaufnahmen sind mit Wasserzeichen versehen worden.
