This is an image just a few miles from where I grew up.
I was lucky to spend my childhood on the edge of the Peak District. This gorge is an internationally important ancient woodland & it may also be a candidate temperate #rainforest.
The limestone gorge is covered in woodland full of moss & lichens. Liverworts have been recorded in studies there. More recently, it’s been hit by ash dieback*, affecting a large proportion of the trees there.
I love it when train doors align at the end of a tunnel. The red tiles at Green Park station make this the ideal location to capture this moment.
It wasn't luck though, instead I froze the moving train with a fast shutter. It took ages to get it centred.
This final image resembles an abstract art painting by Piet Mondrian.
One of the nicest things about #Shetland winters is when the mirrie dancers appear. Mirr means blur in Shetland #dialect. Tonight as I watched the #AuroraBorealis , it really did appear like dancing figures, the speed of their movement obscuring their edges as they merged with the darkness #nature #Scotland #aurora
My 12 year old son is currently in critical condition in the hospital he needs a liver transplant ASAP. I’d appreciate a RT to help him find a donor in Ohio (AB+) Thank You 🙏🏽
The German word "warum" means "why".
The German word "wieso" means "why".
The German word "weshalb" means "why".
The German word "weswegen" means "why".
And now you're all wondering: "But ... why?"
Well, ... darum.*
Enjoy our language!
(*"Darum" means "just because" and is the shortest answer to every warum-question you can think of - and don't really want to answer. Actually, the same goes for "deshalb" and "deswegen" - but there's no "dieso".)
