Human eyesight has evolved in a 'green' world and most of the spectral sensitivity is concentrated in the corresponding narrow range of greens. No wonder our digital cameras are set up to record 50% of their pixels in the green (if a Bayer matrix device is used. which includes the vast majority of models these days).

I have all the greens ever required in plain view already from my favourite audio listening position. Only fitting to snap a frame now and then.

In semi-arid and desert climates, green can be relatively rare.

aspects of green in the inner city
You are out there. You and your camera. You can shoot or not shoot as you please. Discover the world, Your world. Show it to us. Or we might never see it.

Love the shot with the old buildings and old trees, Martin!

This is wonderful. Zen like.

We need more green to survive. 10 billion humans need ten times the Photosynthesis just to breezze and eat
that 1 Billion people in 1800.

Because we burn photosynthesized fossiles we even need more. Yet today less Photosynthesis is conducted currently.

Plant ! Plant ! Plant!!!

I suggest a robot army planting planting planting. Supported by a steering committy of Biologists testing soil
designing Ecosystems that manage themselves over time.

The ecosystem seem to respond to the milder, wetter climate and the excess of CO2 at my latitudes. Any open area which is'nt clearcut or grazed, disappear in a stunning tempo. So does the glaciers also, here represented by the Engabre at Svartisen in late june this summer. The lowest situated glacier in Europe. Hope its green enough..

Børge: Yes, there is hope in the deep wisdom built into the self regulating ecosystem of our planet. And we DO know so little about its workings.

This is a wonderful shot. I wish I was there. The landscape is so tall and wide. In Germany everything seems to be so small and tight.

Børge, I really like the colours (many) tones and scene.  I really want to get back to Ladakh and Kashmir but the situation in Kashmir is pretty iffy  >:( .  May have a job in October but we shall see.  Not photography, lousy pay but great perks   ;)
This was shot from a moving vehicle with D700, 70-200 2.8 G vr II, not much green and no place to pull over  :(

Not to imply that we should do nothing and put all our money in the compensating effect of the ecosystems. We should do all we can to cut emissions and find a way to store CO2.
Tom, I sure would would visit your part of the world sometime. The open space combined with the rugged peaks and dry vegetation gives a me a feeling that the people that inhabit these parts, might be the tuff and resillient.
