I search for the realness, the real feeling of a subject, all the texture around it…I always want to see the third dimension of something…I want to come alive with the object ~Andrew Wyeth
Prague is a beautiful city, spending a couple of days was not a big issue. We were not lucky enough to have sunny days but at least it was not snowing or raining 😁. That’s fair enough. We were saved from the first snow which they in the last week. Walking on cobblestone roads in snow wouldn’t be easy.
Six Word Saturday
Approximately 5,400 people die each year from lung cancer in the Czech Republic. Lung cancer epidemiology and prevention is one of the top-priority health problems in the Czech Republic. The incidence is one of the highest in the world especially for males; in females it is continuously increasing. Primary prevention is available but difficult to implement, particularly non-smoking.

Thank you for visiting my blog and appreciating my scheduled post early this week. I shall reply to comments and visit your blogs soon. Enjoy weekend.
See you in a couple of days. Take care and be kind.
This was the only moment when we enjoyed sunshine in week’s time. Moreover the only image we took during our 90 min. walk. I do not see sunrise and sunset from my home. The sun is always behind those mountains.
What Causes the Sun to Not Rise In the Winter?
Both the occurrence of the Midnight Sun and the Polar Night are a direct result of the position of the Earth and its relationship with the Sun. As most people already know, the Earth is not positioned perfectly perpendicular. If it was, then every location on the entire planet would receive exactly 12 hours of sunlight and 12 hours of darkness every single day. However, as we already know, this is not the case.
The reason for this is that the Earth has a slight tilt to it. In fact, it is estimated that the Earth’s tilt is approximately 23.5 degrees on its axis. This fairly significant tilt of the earth means that one end of it is always pointing towards the sun while the opposite end is pointing away from it.
However, since the Earth is also constantly rotating on its axis and making a complete revolution every 24 hours, it means that the majority of the planet is still receiving a fairly equal amount of sunlight for the majority of the year. But as you get further away from the equator, this ratio of sunlight to darkness begins to become more and more unequal.

I’ve begun to realize that you can listen to silence and learn from it. It has a quality and a dimension all its own. ~ Chaim Potok
These images were taken on the same day with respective settings “1/4000 sek. f/5,6 300 mm” and “1/60 sek. f/5,6 300 mm”
The settings were “1/40 sek. f/5,6 300 mm” and then “1/1000 sek. f/5,6 300 mm”
Settings were 1/1250 sek. f/5,6 300 mm & 1/640 sek. f/5,6 300 mm
I have learned all kinds of things from my many mistakes. The one thing I never learn is to stop making them.~ Joe Abercrombie
A photograph is a story and as an author it’s up to us how much we want to reveal. The light helps us to create the scene.
I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, It’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, And that enables you to laugh at life’s realities.~ Dr. Seuss
Whatever you want, at any moment, someone else is getting it. Whatever you have, someone else is longing for.~ Laura Lippman
In current circumstances I am longing for sunny days. The declining day length and falling temperatures causing “raining leaves”. I wished to capture remains of the autumn but could hardly manage. Anyways, I was happy to be in nature for almost two hours.
Hope you are enjoying Sunday!
