100

Andre, Black And White Photography, Photography

According to the files in the monochromia folder on my disk, this is my 100th post here on Monochromia. It’s amazing how quickly the time has passed. I’m still glad to be a part of this great community of talented photographers and lovers of monochrome images.

So, I looked for a very special image to celebrate this anniversary.

More of my images can be seen at my own blog.

In the forest after the rain started

Here in Germany we have a saying “Steter Tropfen holen den Stein” (~ constant dripping wears away the stone), but also “der Tropfen, der das Fass zum überlaufen bringt” (~ the drop that makes the barrel overflowing).

Same is, when rain falls on the forest ground. First, the rain will be soaked. The longer the rain lasts, the more water won’t be soaked. Instead, it searches a way to escape. So, the water comes back to skylight at a tiny, but growing, spring.
