Boloria euphrosyne on Dactylorhiza maculata

Not far from my home, I found this beauty. There were some orchids growing in a glade and there, in the sun, it was spreading its wings. It looked like it was resting for a while enjoying the warmth of the sun.

I think the butterfly is a Boloria euphrosyne and the orchid a Dactylorhiza maculata.

Those shoes!

I saw this really cool guy once. I have other photos of him too, where you can see more of him than his feet. But seeing only his feet is enough to know that he is a cool guy.

Morning light panorama

The rest of the family were still sleeping while I sneaked out with my camera. The sunrises on Langkawi were quite nice, so I wanted to capture as much as possible of that wonderful morning light.
(An hour or so later, I had company with the rest of the family on the breakfast restaurant on the roof of the house on the right.)

Sunset on the lake

We were out on a boat trip with our friends. Time flew by and suddenly it was already evening. We didn’t mind though. Not when we could enjoy this wonderful sunset.

Sunbathing in the glade

I was out for a short walk in the forest. I wasn’t planning on walking in any rough terrain, so I didn’t wear my hiking boots, just my sandals. Then I saw this little fellow a few meters off the path. Naturally, I had to step out into the vegetation to get a closer look at this beautiful reptile. In retrospect, it might not have been the smart thing to do. But it didn’t bite me, so I guess it’s all right.

Through the clouds

We were out on a little family outing this quite cloudy spring day. Beyond the fields we could see the sunshine coming through the clouds just above the church. A coincidence? Who knows..?

Frosty rosehips

I can’t exactly remember where this is, but I think it’s somewhere close to my home. I kinda like quite pale colors in this kind of picture. I find that it captures the feeling of that cold day pretty good.

Morning Traffic

I was out in the cold on an early Saturday morning. With one camera on the tripod, I was capturing the sunrise over the river. With another camera in my hand, I was capturing the morning traffic. Totally different results and feeling in the photos and I’m not sure which one I like the most.

Not quite full

It’s not quite full, but I still find it quite nice. If I remember correctly, this is taken on Koh Lipe, Thailand, during our backpacking trip.

Blue morning

It was the beginning of a long work day. I arrived a bit early and took a stroll down to the lake. The day turned out to be quite hectic and intense, but what a morning it was. It helped me through the day.
