Explored Summer

Click on photo to view it in different sizes on my Flickr account

One of my photos was in "Flickr Explore"!

Every day, flickr, the biggest photo website in the world chooses 500 photos they consider as the "most awesome". They call it "Flickr Explore".
I don't know about the algorithm the images are choosen with but based on the fact that there are more than 2 billion photos in Flickr I'm kind of proud that one of my contributions were chosen beside the really really stunning photos there.
The strange thing is that I took the photo already last summer at a small lake in Thuringia. I was strolling around with a young guy and I gave him my small camera. We played the photo-assignment game and one of our topics was simply "Summer".
This photo was my "Summer" photo.

By the way: Last week my blog had its 30.000 visitor since January 2006.
Thank you for constantly visiting my site.


  1. wow! cool your pic was selected in flickr and congrats for the 30k visitors in the blog!!;)

  2. Wenn man sich das Bild genauer ansieht, wird die Lebendigkeit, das Leben und der Moment nicht mehr unterschätzt.
    Vielleicht ist das Bild deswegen so gut, _weil_ es so "beiläufig" - ohne _grosse_ Absicht, ohne viel Nachzudenken gemacht wurde.

  3. Gratulation zu beiden Ereignissen!
