Rather warm the last two days of the year where a Chinook blowing over Alaska Range warmed us up from -25°C  to +7°C.




Snow melted off the trees.

Now few shots of nature, not very spectacular, perhaps boring, but I love this sandy and acidic areas. They are my playgrounds. Poor in nutriments, but floristically interesting.

Yes!  This is also true here in California.  Such areas are limited in my region but very interesting.  One example is the pygmy coniferous forest found in scattered locations with specialized nutrient-poor soil along the northern California coastal areas, where trees a meter high may be 80 years old. These areas consist almost entirely of species of Pinaceae, Cupressaceae, and Ericaceae with the conifers highly dwarfed. Surrounding areas with more normal soils have a much more diverse flora that is typical of the north coastal region of temperate coniferous rainforest.

I haven't walked in these forests in 35 years as I've focused on other locations of interest, but this is definitely a vegetation type I want to return to with suitable photographic gear and plenty of time to shoot carefully.

I wish everyone  a brilliant and healthy 2016.


Still middle in the post-processing, but this was the last shot of 2015, at the end of the 12-hour TV and Radio broadcast of the Tilburg Top1000 music-event at the 31.12.2015.  24 dj's presented the program and more than 17 musicians made live a performance.

Shot after the show with ; on the left  Hetty who presented a part of the show and on the right the Tilburg Rapper Ludo.  He had a top10 position with his Rap version of the dutch Folksinger Armand''Ben ik te Min'  who passed away a few weeks ago.

I though I commented on you shot.

It invokes a great yearning in me, although readinmg the news I cetrainly do not want to got to Mexico. I feel it is too dangerous and as many states in the world currently ruled by gangsters...
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.

New Year's Eve.
Asle - what a terrific shot! I can imagine how beautiful it will look in a mural size print. I feel cold by just looking at this photo.
