I found six M's - AlphabetHunt

in Feel Good2 months ago

At first I wanted to title the post "My M&M's" but that might have been a copyright violation 😉
The M is a very nice letter and the six words came quite quickly to my mind. To find suitable photos was a bit harder, but my archives are still full of photos which I have never shown.

Successful #AlphabetHunt
Hive AlphabetHunt - Letter M

Last week we have been hunting the letter L in the #AlphabetHunt Challenge hosted by great Barbara @barbara-orenya in the Feel Good Community: illustrate 6 words (or concepts) starting with the letter of the week.

This week we hunt the next letter in the Alphabet, which is the Letter "M". Have a look at the actual post from @barbara-orenya for this weeks hunt to learn about the simple and easy to follow rules: #AlphabetHunt letter M - and who are the winners of the lucky draw for the #L week.

Mountains

The sunrise on the Mangart mountain at the Slovenian-Italian border would have been amazing, if not thick clouds had blocked my view a view minutes after I took photos like this one where you can see the sunrise colors and the setting moon - no, that's no hot pixel on my camera sensor 😉

I have photographed this rocky mountain from the Predil Pass in Italy on my way back home from Slovenia, but I have no idea what it's name is ;)
I just liked the snowy rocky mountain and the dark clouds above.

Millstone

The weekend before last weekend I have been for the first time in months to Slovenia again. On my walk around the Šunikov vodni gaj / Šunik Water Grove I saw the ruins of an old Water mill. There have only been a few mossy overgrown walls and stones left, but also these two millstones, of which I hat to take a few photos.

Mlinarica

On my hunt for the M I have found a few snapshots which I took at the Mlinarica river in Slovenia. This small river runs through a narrow and almost inaccessible gorge and flows into the Soča river. There's also a nice waterfall of which I have already posted photos a few times.

Minimalism

I don't know if this photo can be called a minimalistic image, because if you zoom in you can actually see a lot ;)
It is a snapshot I took from the Castle Bled down to the lake Bled, where we had a good coffee and a delicious Cremeschnitte (cream cake - link below).

Moon

In April we had a Super Full Moon and I was able to take a few photos of it with my long Telephoto Zoom lens Sigma 150-600mm.

Macrophotography

In May I have been on an early morning walk at the reservoir. There have been many of these Equisetum plants along the path, and I don't know why I picked this one to take a photo, but when I saw the Macro photo at home I was quite happy that I did:

Additionally to the morning dew drops all over the plant there was a tiny little insect almost on top of the Equisetum which looks like a mini moth, but I couldn't find out its name. Because a second insect was further down the plant, it looked like they had a race climbing up.

So, if I counted correctly, it was my "M" hunt post for this week's #AlphabetHunt. I hope you enjoyed it a little bit and now I am curious about your hunting success 😊

The M is the 13th letter in the English Alphabet, what means we are half way through, but I think the hardest letters are yet to come 😉

Spectacular photography work all in one post i enjoyed looking at every and each one of them photos and my favorite is the Macrophotography flower just looks so detailed great job @johannpiber 👍

The macro is also my favorite and in the past months I have learned to love taking macros because it's another world in our world and many images include a nice little surprise 😁

Thank you very much that you like the photos and for your nice comment, @kohsamui99 😀


Cheers and !BEER

I would love to get into macro photography one day i will get all the right equipment then i will be able to see the world in a different perspective.

Have a great day @johannpiber 😊

You don't need much, extension tubes to a standard lens would make it at first, and only if you like it you could buy a dedicated macro lens. There are quite some YouTube videos about how to start macro photography.

I wanted to say "have a great day too", but I think I'd better say have a good night or good morning 😁


Cheers and !BEER

Thanks for the advice actually i have seen you can even buy macro lens attachments for your smartphones and they work pretty good i will have to look into that a bit more and they are cheaper to start practicing with.

Well it's a goodnight form me and a good day for you i think 😊

That's true, I didn't think of these lenses for smartphones, but I think I have even seen macros on the Hive which they said were taken by phone.
Good luck with that 😀

Well, it's good evening here - 6:30 pm - have a good night and a great weekend 🌞


Cheers and !BEER

Yeah same i know a couple of people on hive that are using this method and the macro photos are turning out quite good the technology in these smartphones has really gone to another level will look into more.

Have a great weekend @johannpiber 😊

Yes, nowadays smartphones take great pictures anyway and with these additional lenses make them even better.

Fabulous M photos! I love the water shots and the mountains are so beautiful! Your millstone photo is wonderful. I had one of millstone that I almost used, but I'm glad I didn't. Yours are better.
Your moon photos are amazing. And you minimalist photo is great. I love that type of photography. Nicely done!

Thank you very much @melinda010100, your kind words make my Sunday a sunny day, although it is cloudy 😁
I think the millstones have been the first photos which I have taken with the intention to use them for the #AlphabetHunt 😉

Thank you, Melinda, have a wonderful Sunday 🌞

It is a sunny Sunday and HOT! I went out early and filled the bird feeders and watered the few plants I have out there this summer, but then was happy to come back in to the air-conditioning!

Oh yes, here it is also hot today, but we don't have an air contitioner. Always when we have hot days we think of buying one, but when we make a decision the weather changes 🤣


Cheers and !BEER

I tend to have a narrow temperature range where my body doesn't just melt and cease functioning, so air is salvation for me! This has been a hot summer by normal Wisconsin standards. Often I have gone entire summers and only used the air conditioning once or twice, but it seems to have run pretty continuously through the entire month of July. It will be interesting to see what August brings.

I think this lockdown situation has caused some changes in weather too - not much traffic on the roads and on the sky have certainly done something. Our weather here is mixed or better said changeable and I don't think it is different from the past years, maybe even a bit colder. But the Summer isn't over yet ☀️


Cheers and !BEER

Who knows what is in store for all of us! I do wonder what kind of world my grandkids will live in.
!BEER

I don't think our grandkids will have a much different world, but the later ones will, if our generation and the ones which follow us don't start to take care of Mother Nature.
But I also believe that most of the youth know that they have to do something, while we didn't learn anything about global warming or the ozone hole when we were young.

Have a wonderful day Melinda ☀️


Thanks a lot for the !BEER 😁

These stones must be quite old, because there's not much left of the Mill. The Millstones are in a good shape though 😉

Oh wow!!! Those are picturisque view of the mountains, I can only dream of seeing. Snow-capped mountain, when will you be a reality?

Oh dear! Long exposure photography! That is a superb shot!!! I have always admired this type of photography.

The minimalistic view is also captivating. I can feel a deep sense of serenity just looking at it.

Your photography of the moon is jaw-dropping! Wow!

And yes, you are right, the hardest letters are yet to come. I cannot imagine letter "X." Hahaha! 😂

Thank you so much for your kind compliments, @gingbabida 😆

You like our mountains and I would love to be where you are to see this volcano 😉

I love to take long exposure shots of flowing water or waterfalls. Thanks a lot that you like the photos.

WOW! Amazing photos for the "M" letter!

The sunrise with little Moon over plenty of fog is magnificent!

The mountain view is wonderful. I also like the "snowy rocky mountain", too.

The millstone is amazing and the greenery in the forest looks relaxing.

The river & waterfall is gorgeous.

The Super Full Moon is magnificent.

The Macro photo is attractive.

Well done! ;)
