Photos you've taken

Lets see some photos that you’ve taken.
I’ve got quite a few of them from my mountain biking, though it’s “just” nature shots.

Unfortunately for me, no mountain biking until this weather and snow clears out a bit.
It’s too slippery and cold currently:

Here’s a random tide up snowman:

You’re not going anywhere, ice boy.

Expand my profile for an example, I’ve even used it as the header photo for a website I made a few years ago. (Offline now as the person I made it for retired.)
I’ll boot the tower later and upload a few :wink:

Not really, I took it from my old Lumix FZ30 + an amazing peace of optic Tele converter Nikon EC-17ED. Pity the FZ30 is only 8Mo Pixel in size, then less when you zoom 2X !

The big leaf in front of the frog is Indian lotus, Nelumbo nucifera, which has an almost magical water-repelling surface that cannot get wet. This is due to billions of tiny, invisible hairs, that act like nanotubes and create a hydrophobic effect.

This is not a frog, obviously, but it’s from the same place. This is a sacred Egyptian blue lily pad, Nymphaea caerulea.

When you look at the sacred Egyptian blue water lily from the side, it looks just like it was depicted on ancient Egyptian illustrations. The ancients used it to make perfume, it has a very nice smell.

For example, this is the stela of Amenemhat and Hemet. Hemet is holding a water lily flower. It’s an often depicted motif on ancient Egyptian art. (I did not take this photo)

Nice! Most of my pics, like the one I referred to earlier, were shot with a Galaxy S4 :joy:
Not bad in daylight, horrible at night, of course. And yeah…forget about close-ups of the Moon :joy:
