Thanks for hosting Benni and a wonderful banner photo.


A sunflower field in the area around Schaffhausen. It is an area where they grow them for the sunflower oil production.

This is what happens when the field has been mowed. It is left to dry in the sun to provide hay for the animals in the winter.

This field is in our village and in summer the cows take over.

And here another sort of field: vineyards in the Mosel area of Germany. The fields at the front belongs to the parents of my daughter-in-law. They also have a couple in higher places, but everything seems to grow on a slope in that area.

Hello to all from Benni, I will be hosting this week. Thank you much for putting my picture as banner. ­čśî

As we've seen this week, the value of unpaved land is important in times of storms and heavy rains. To honor these natural sponges, my theme this week is "Meadows, Fields And Wetlands". Any unpaved area will do, there are many of them out there and they are not only beautiful, but also serve a purpose in preserving our environment.

Picture This #416: Three Shots Of One View

Thanks for hosting Anders with such a good idea and wonderful banner photo from Belita.


I don't always take the same views on my walks.


We always drive the same route to the supermarket in the next village of Langendorf and I take photos on the way. We drive through an avenue of trees, so here are a few views:

Many thanks to Anders for hosting this week. Definitely a theme we have not done before, so it'll be interesting to see what everyone comes up with!! I found this more difficult than I expected. Going through my archive I realised that although there are some places I have photographed a lot, I rarely use the same angle and/or distance twice. That being the case, here are three photos of the same subject, Carew Castle, at different times of year, but from slightly different angles and distances. 

1) At sunset in summer.

2) A very still day in late autumn.

3) In winter.

Great banner by Belita!!

Greetings and welcome from Sweden! This week I'm hosting and my idea for the theme is that pick one and the same view at three different times. Looking forward to your contributions. Best Anders.

First of all thank you so much for featuring my photo as banner this week. One of my memories of a visit to Schaffhausen and thanks for hosting Mitch. Yes, our subjects are becoming less and less, but if we take new photos, we should have something completely different.

Something completely different, a bridge crossing at our local supermarket.

This is a relatively new bridge across the River Rhine in Schaffhausen. I only got a side view as we were passing on the road.

Good day from the USA; the world seems in turmoil this week, both here and in Barcelona. Fortunately, photography is a wonderful way to take a break. Lovely banner shot of the castle by Pat. Great theme by Mitch.

I don't have many pictures of bridges so you may have seen these before.
