The beautiful weather of the past few days naturally attracted motorcyclists to the road. These brightly cleaned specimens drove us at the Tankumsee before the lens. Since the owners also had nothing against it, Anke and I immediately took the opportunity and shot a few photos.

Dogwood in the Spring

For years I am driving to Yosemite in Spring to see the blossoms of the dogwoods. They are such beautiful flowers, no matter whether they are the white or red variety.

This year, however, she surprised me with this Beauty.
