Sicht, Stimmung, Licht, Dunkelheit - von den Arbeiten Josef Sudek inspiriert und sie fortsetzend.

We don't know why that is. But that's the way it is with a tree too. When it dies and sheds its leaves or needles, it becomes a statue. And it suggests something to you....Don't try and photograph things only as they…

Optional Comment Code: I saw it in
This group is for pictures of animals in their natural environment.
No buildings or people.
No black and white.
No dead, dying or stuffed animals.
The animals must be in their natural surroundings. The only exception to the rule is if an animal is perched on something, such as a bird feeder.
Keep it clean - this is a family group
This is a group dedicated to sunrises and sunsets around the world.
