Hello to all,

Put crepe bows round the white necks of the public doves,
Let the traffic policemen wear black cotton gloves.
He was my North, my South, my East and West,
My working week and my Sunday rest,
My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song;
I thought that love would last forever: I was wrong.
The stars are not wanted now; put out every one,
Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun,
Pour away the ocean and sweep up the woods;
For nothing now can ever come to any good.
I started to collect some images that have a special meaning to me, some are just utterly beautiful, some are exceptional, however i would like to share these with the occasional viewer of this page, enjoy!.... (see also 1000 Meisterwerke)

The Iceberg pictured above has been frozen in place by sea ice in North Star Bay, Greenland. The sun never fully sets at this time of year in the Arctic, so sunlight appears on the left side of the image. Lights from Thule are visible on the right side. Look for the Milky Way (top left) and a few very faint meteors visible in the early morning sky.

Cydonia MensaThe Face on Mars was one of the most striking and remarkable images taken on 25 juli 1976 during the Viking missions to the red planet. Unmistakeably resembling a human face, the image caused many to hypothesize that it was the work of an extraterrestrial civilization. Later images revealed that it was a mundane feature rendered face-like by the angle of the sun
