Perched

Perched

The snow melts away more around the parking spot for this snowmobile than it does under it. Hence, as the summer rolls in, the snowmobile perches higher and higher.

The power of polarization

Snowbird view

The same view as yesterday. Light hand on editing -- a bit of color boost, but not even all that much. Most of this is good exposure and a gorgeous sky.

Bright colours in South Bay

Bright colours in the South Bay

As we flew in over San Jose, the wetlands and waters in the South Bay turned out to all have bright colours. Gorgeous. Alas, the reflections in the airport window makes the picture slightly washed out.

Moffatt Air Field

Moffatt Air field

Famous inter alia for the use by Nasa for space shuttles; the famous huge hangar is clearly visible in the lower right corner of the picture.

Stockholm University

Stockholm University: Södra husen

One of the most flattering angles for this, ostensibly one of the ugliest buildings in Stockholm.

Flower and texture

Textured flower

Just about to break out in bloom, the fine hairs on the outside of all the petals gives us a delicate texture.
