    Thanks all I also like the last the most :) On the first one I tried multiple variations on how to place the fall and finally saw that exactly in the middle works the best here :) Putting the fall lower and showing more trees almost killed the waterfall effect and putting the fall to...

    Ok a few shots of an autumn waterfall. The first one is an experiment to try with a tele lens: A wider angle shot of the whole fall and one with a macro lens of an angle which I liked comments welcome :)

    Snow, Snow, Everywhere!

    hehe :) Well I'm only 80km from Finland and I can tell you that you have daylight for ca 5h at the moment. But don't expect any snow :) Am quite north and well we had a small amount of snow today. IT SNOWED FOR 5 MINUTES. It's full into december and we usually have around 1m of snow by now, but...

    nope, they were 70 years ago used for mining. But are now abandoned and under protection as they are habited by bats during the winter. I have a few shots of them as well :) Will post later.

    Was in caves recently. The pictures were taken in absolute darkness with just the flashlight as a light source. Exposure times were ca 25-30 seconds. The water hasn't been disturbed for a long time so it's perfectly flat (no air moving either). #1 - deep in the rock #2 - closer to border...
