    Farbtupfer am Kornfeld
    A spectacular photo; and Mother Nature has provided the most appropriate background for this capture. I always like to read the comments from other visitors. Call me nosey, eh? I often learn something unique and/or interesting from various people around the world. I used to get quite frustrated at not being able to understand comments written in another language; but thankfully, Microsoft and others have provided a delightful translation program. I've given it quite a workout today as I viewed this very informative albumn. You've managed to cover a little bit of everything in your daily world; and what a beautiful world it is. You've also given a little insight into what makes "Manfred" such an interesting and charming individual. Each photo reveals some of the joys and things you treasure in your daily life. Thank you, dearest Manfred, for sharing your world with all of us. You brighten our daily world far more than you can ever imagine. You are, indeed, very special.
    Luv ya bunches!

      Thanks, I am only a mad cyclist who lives in the countryside and loves to move in the nature :-)
      Have a nice sunday, dear Sweet Caroline!

    Abendstimmung
    The perfect capture to what has been a most interesting and informative album. As always, dearest Manfred, you have outdone yourself with this fabulous album. It's taken me all day to peruse your album for you have so many photos in which I just enjoyed lingering and getting lost in the moment. You are truly blessed to have such breathtaking vistas on your daily route to and from your office. I can understand and appreciate how such scenery can wipe out any stress and/or unpleasantness of a daily profession. When it comes to mental therapy, you've got the best in the world. And these horses--aww, they are one of the most gorgeous creatures God ever made. Have you ever stopped to pet or spend time with any of the horses? They each seem to have their own special personality. In viewing the albums of many of the owners of horses in recent days, I've become attached to several special pets and/or performers. I never realized how loving and affectionate these creatures could be.
    Luv ya!

    Schrilles Pink am Wegesrand
    One of nature's true beauties which makes all the biking excursions even more enjoyable. When you come upon such beautiful flowers in the wild, you can't help but stop and enjoy their wonderous charm. I guess we can also thank our beautiful, fine feathered friends for helping to sprinkle the seeds of breathtaking beauty along life's pathways. Unknowingly, they've done a spectacular job as they flit among the meadows and forest on a daily basis. I've long admired the highways and byways of the Germans and Swiss people for their cleanliness. I've often commented to my friends and acquaintances that you could eat off the streets and highways in these two lovely countries. You never see the unsightly litter that seems to clutter the sides of our roads in the States, as well as Canada. In spite of there being bylaws pertaining to littering, they are seldom--if ever--enforced. This is a wonderful capture, dearest Manfred, for closing what has been a very interesting and lovely albumn.
    Luv ya

    ...und es duftet nach Heu wenn ich träume...
    I wholeheartedly agree with Lara--it's a great portrait. And I'm not talking about your recliner bike. LOL! I envy your being able to tan beautifully so quickly in the springtime. I can spend the entire summer in my yard, but I never tan. I get my usual agonizing blistering around the first of May; but I never tan. I have the typical British/Scottish fair complextion which burns so easily; but I never show any signs of any color but white. After ending up in the emergency room on two occasions with severe burns--the result of being in the sun and wind for 30 minutes--I gave up on the idea of ever getting a good tan. It wasn't worth all the agonizing pain and suffering. "Manfred's True Love" is great capture!
    Luv ya!

    Der Weizen ist reif!
    Wow! What a difference a day makes. The rolling wheat fields are beautiful; and everything is so perfectly landcaped, along with the forest-covered hillside. The close-up photo reveals the wheat pods are ready for harvesting as they are about to burst from their enclosures. It's the perfect picture grounded only by the beauty of the magnificent blue sky.
    As always, dearest Manfred, your pictures are outstanding.
    Luv ya!

    Ein Bett im Kornfeld...
    This is such a breathtaking view of the meadow and the sky. I love the soft view of the sun as it is going down. Every color of the rainbow is reflected in this photo. The sky-blue pinks of the evening sky are always intriguing. I love the poem you have shared, along with its interpretation. It's the first time I've ever heard Jurgen Drew. What a fabulous voice!

    Luv ya bunches!

    Radfahren ist Freude!
    A beautiful capture of the moment. Such a beautiful child and a smile of innosence. You have obviously intrigued the interest of this adorable child with your smile and your camera. Great job, dearest Manfred.

    Luv ya!

    Mellow Yellow
    Hello "Mellow Yellow"--I haven't heard that song in years. Thanks for the YouTube site with the song. It was great to hear it once again. This is a great photo; and you blend right in with the yellow fields. I notice you're biking in your "recliner chair" on this excursion. Judging from the scenery, it must be the beginning of spring and a beautiful day for enjoying the gorgeous countryside. I don't think I would ever tire of the grand rolling hills and the patchwork of fields of different shades of green and yellow. Whenever we're approaching an airport in Europe for landing, the fields of different grains, vegetables, etc., are always a breathtaking sight. They remind me of a giant-size puzzle. I've always admired how the farmers could plow and plant their crops with such pride and perfection. It's a great photo, dearest Manfred.
    Luv ya!

    Дед Мороз - Großväterchen Frost  :-)
    Absolutely adore it! You look like Dr. Zhivargo (sp.). You also remind me of another Fotki photographer--Stein Sjolie. I think I've seen where he has visited you several times in recent months. I was going to ask--in an earlier picture--whether or not you have windshield wipers on your glasses and/or helmet when you're riding your bike to and from home each day. Otherwise you're traveling the highways and streets partially blind. Until last year--when I had cataract surgery on both eyes--I was constantly having to clean my glasses so I could see how to remove the snow from my auto and/or my driveway. It would be so frustrating at times; and if my glasses weren't snowed over, then the perspiration was burning my eyes to the point I couldn't see anything. Thank goodness, the cataract surgery was successful; and I no longer have to wear glasses--except when reading fine print. What a joy to have to no longer wear glasses--after 45 years of constant wear.
    Luv ya!

    Auf der Weserbrücke in Rinteln
    Really lovely! With the hint of accumulated sleet covering the surface of everything and the glow of the lights from the church and surrounding buildings, it's a lovely black and white photo. I don't normally care for B&W pictures, but this one has a very special character about it. It would make a lovely Christmas card.

    Luv ya!

      It looks like a B&W picture because the darkness and the white snow dominate. But it is a color picture :-))
      I shot it from a bridge over the Weser river.

    Blick aus dem Windmühlenstumpf
    A magnificent and breathtaking photo. This view reminds me of so many of the gorgeous scenes from the movie, Dr. Zhivargo (sp.?). It's nice to be able to get a feeling of what the world looks like from the various windows of the "tower". I can understand how you could be drawn to its constantly changing and enchanting beauty. It must require a great deal of patience to wait for the seasons to change so you can capture the breathtaking beauty of the world below. The upcoming view of the patchwork quilt of colors of the fall foilage must be overwhelming from this height. I can't wait to see some of your autumn captures from these windows. Makes me wish I could see it all in person. Instead, my dearest Manfred, I shall rely on the capable lens of your camera--with you as my tour guide--to share your world of outstanding beauty with me.

    Luv ya!
    Sweet Caroline

    Blick aus dem Windmühlenstumpf
    Obviously, this lovely photo had to have been taken from one of the windows of your "tower". This is such a beautiful capture of the village below; and I love the way you managed to have it framed by the snow-covered window sill and icecyles. A magnificent capture of the moment, dearest Manfred.

    Luv ya!

    Manfred's Dorf im Schnee
    A very lovely area; and I love the way you have captured the photo using the icecyles as a frame. Great work.

    Luv ya!

    Sommerabend
    A delightful capture, dearest Manfred, of this lone wild flower. The glowing gold color is lovely against the backdrop of varigated tans of the wheat.

    Luv ya!

    Mohnblumen
    A delightful photo of the wild-growing flowers on the side of the road. It's lovely how the tall wheat and white flowers have blended in with the lovely red poppies. One wouldn't need to do anything if they chose to take a hand full of these dainty flowers to put in a vase. They have already been arranged beautifully--with the filler. Too bad you had to repair your bike; but you surely picked a lovely spot to do so. A very lovely photo and poem.

    Luv ya!
    Sweet Caroline
