my life in words and pictures

this is me, trying to put down my thoughts about everything and anything in the most sincere way possible, trying to find order in the chaos that is my life, trying to throw some mediocre-to-good pictures in along the way and trying to do it all in such a charming way that maybe someone actually finds pleasure in reading it all.

in these winter months, when my usual routes through the woods and over the golf course are wet and muddy, i run on top of this hill which oversees the e n t i r e lake of constance and the mountains around it, austria and switzerland.

and, obviously, magnificent sunsets *** :)

the other day, i was up there, and i swear as the view came over the ridge i slowed down and stood there mesmerized - looking over the lake at one of the most beautiful sunsets i've ever seen! the sky over the mountain peaks across the water was bathed in a blood deep red and as the sun was setting it looked like the horizon was on fire.

there were these people, two or three, standing up there as well. one was walking his dog and taking pictures with his camera phone, mumbling 'amazing' as he passed me. another was taking picture after picture with this huge camera on a tripod. i was thinking about running home and getting the camera myself, but it was too late, the sun was setting so quickly.

next day's local newspaper showed a picture of the sunset taken from, well, right where the man with the tripod was standing :) the caption und the large picture read something like:

'... as if the sky was on fire over the lake of constance ...'

this was a few days later.

and while we're at it, the mountains on the other side of the lake in the background of the pictures - that's switzerland. in the third picture, the mountains on the left side of the tree are austria, on the right, that's switzerland again.

i'll take you there one day.
