Rumbling Skies

Completely surrounded by the force of nature
I can only stand and look in awe
As the lightning is followed by loud rumbling
A car alarm goes off in the distance
Triggered by the impact of the blasts
Glad I’m standing safe inside
Cause no matter how amazing the spectacle
Lightning can strike with all of its might

Crane bird

Long ago i had the wish to see
The majesty of this bird so free
Famous for its courtship dance
So when I actually had a glance
I couldn’t believe my very eyes
Almost too big was the surprise
As the sight becomes a regularity
I realize that it’s a actually a rarity
Endangered in our low countryside
Yet the cranes don’t choose to hide
Today again the two stand fine
Oh so very close to the railway line
Do other people care to take a look
Standing there, straight from a fairytale book
Probably best if you remain a hidden treasure
Hidden in plain sight, such a funny pleasure

Mega Mix klein

Found out about Nik software a few weeks ago on a website and have given it a try. Today i found out about silver line efex pro.. and i love it πŸ™‚ What a perfect way to play with photographs. At least, that’s what i think. This is an image taken from my window. This large thing used for cement is standing across the street. Found the name pretty awesome, so i took an image during sunset. But i felt this image could use a little extra, so i did give it a tiny bit of post-editing πŸ˜‰

The new central station of station was finished last year i believe, could be 2 years ago. Before that it was a construction site for many years. The end result is great!
I’ve edited the sky, since it was a bit light and white – not fitting with the foreground.

Omaru Station klein

A 3 photograph panorama with a lot of editing needed for the air. Back in 2008 i wasnt taking into account extra cutting space for a panorama, so i must consider myself lucky with this result lol. Had to cut away a lot of the nice hedges you can still see in the front, but the rest of this beautiful old railway station in Omaru New Zealand still shows some of its splendor! Should go back to redo this one πŸ˜‰
