This is the first of todays uplifting images - the Rhine with the hills of the Black Forest behind. The left bank is Germany, the right bank is France.



This is the second - it is always uplifting when my boys aren't killing each other and generally stressing me out!

Well, I think that we had just had a tickling session, and this was the "run after your brother and push him over" session, which they always find funny. Up to a point.

I didn't have any filters with me, so I had to take the photo with my sunglasses acting as the filter. It was too bright otherwise!

We have a digital SLR (single lens reflex) camera, and I put the glasses in front of the lens. Fortunately they were big enough to cover the whole of the front of the lens, and reduce the glare all over the picture.

Great photos, Dentstudent. So relaxing your photos of the Rhine as well. thanks
Rosalind Franklin was my first cousin and one my life's main regrets is that I never met this brilliant and beautiful lady.
She discovered the Single DNA Helix in 1953, then it was taken by Wilkins without her knowledge or agreeement.

It's my pleasure! Taking the sun's reflection one this weekend was not really a chore - although the air was chilly, it was fantastic to get some sun.

I mentioned to Blakestyger elsewhere that we get Black Kites and Hoopoes along the Rhine - I forgot to mention that we also have Beeeaters too - I think that we're on the northern-most extent of its natural distribution.....

Is this the only word with 3 consecutive e's?

I think that you're right Karen - It should be Bee Eater. But hey, hey?

No, but I do live in a very agricultural part of Germany - vineyards to the east, corn, tobacco, strawberries and asparagus elsewhere.
