Lots of detail and colour from that 'phone shot, Bruno :)

A mixture of familiar and less familiar species. The foreground grass might be Holcus lanatus?

Testing whether our recent connection issues are solved, by uploading images ... Not too bad response as far as uploading goes, evidently.

Commuters alighting at Oslo Central Station. IR with Nikon Z5 and the Nikkor 28mm f/2.8 SE Z, Hoya R72 filter. With the jet black filter in front of the lens most people assume there is a lens cap on, and the impression is strengthened by using the camera in silent mode. AF works fine in IR, by the way.

Most people have dark attire and thus tend to appear quite bright in IR (optical brighteners, presumably)

Thanks Birna, a taste of the spring meadow in the garden.  I trust you on Holcus lanatus.

A first impression, actually. Which might be in error, but the appearance certainly is close to that species.

The red flower is Silene dioica Red Champion. The blue belongs to Boraginaceae, but there are multiple candidates for it.

Nice to see your (last) images of the Mirage.  Australia licence built Mirage IIIEs for the RAAF, with their last 50 being sold on to Pakistan when they were withdrawn here.

As well as being lovely images of some amazing (maybe vintage?) technology, I loved that we could clearly see the pilot in some of these Daniel.

I've had similar experiences in the hillside of Wales, where the airforce train their pilots by flying along twisty valleys, so you can often be standing higher up than the plane.
Were you in a similar location,  or was this near the airfield?

There's lots going on here John.

0 emissions.
 The "feria" is over here. People used a lot of this little ones for transportation to and fro the fair. They are for sharing.
