Evelin J.20,186Liebe Foto Freunde Wer Freude an Alpenblumen und Sonnenuntergang hat, ist der Event genau das richtige!! Treffpunkt 14.30 Uhr auf dem Parkplatz beim Restaurant Rössli in Steinegg.  Wir fahren anschliessend gemeinsam Richtung Bachers und gehen von dort aus zu Fuss weiter.  Die Wanderung ist sehr leicht und dauert 1 Stunde, mit Fotografieren natürlich mehr. Auf der Fänerenspitz machen wir es uns mit einem Lagerfeuer gemütlich, Picknicken, Bräteln (grillieren) und haben eine tolle Aussicht über den Alpstein und das Appenzellerland und als krönender Abschluss fotografieren wir den wunderschönen Sonnenuntergang :) Bitte Taschenlampe mitnehmen, für den Rückweg. Wir müssen ein Stück durch den Wald gehen, bevor wir auf die Bergstrasse kommen. Proviant müssen alle selber mitbringen.  Würde mich freuen wenn ihr am Event teil habt! Wer möchte ist am Sonntag recht herzlich zum Alpstein Fotowalk eingeladen. Siehe im anderen Event nach. Das Treffen findet nur bei gutem Wetter statt! Ich freue mich auf dich und grüsse dich herzlich EvelinAlpenblumen Fotowalk mit Sonnenuntergang2013-05-18 14:30:009

Swiss Photography Club G+967*18 August 2012 (1 day)* This photowalk leads us to the Big Aletsch Glacier. The glacier is located in the Bernese Alps, we will access it from the village Fiesch, Valais. We meet at 8 am, going up to Fiescheralp by cablecar. It will take us 2 to 3 hours to get to the glacier by an easy or medium hike (no uphill). At Märjelensee, a small restaurant is waiting for us. After lunch, we will take a tour on the surface of the glacier in a small group. We return to the village Fiesch in the evening by cablecar. *Location* Fiesch is located in the upper Valais, in 27km / 30 minutes distance from Visp. Fiesch is easily accessible by train and car. *Meeting point / meeting time* We meet at 8.00 am at the valley station of the cablecar directly in Fiesch. http://goo.gl/maps/Ms4Ip We buy tickets and take the 8.30 am cablecar up to Fiescheralp or Eggishorn. Ticket price Fiescheralp retour is CHF 26.20 (13.10 with half-tax) Ticket price Eggishorn / Fiescheralp retour is CHF 38.40 (19.20 with half-tax) *Access hike* We have two options: For perfect weather, we can take the cablecar up to Eggishorn top station for a magnificient overview over the Big Aletsch Glacier. We have to walk down a medium-steep trail down to Märjelensee (approx. 500 meter altitude difference, 1.5 - 2 hrs). In cloudy weather conditions, we hike directly from Fiescheralp to Märjelensee (2 - 3 hrs). There is almost no change in altitude, and we use a 800m long tunnel. *Märjelensee* At Märjelensee we will have lunch in the "Gletscherstube". After this, we walk down to the Big Aletsch Glacier, passing several lakes. *The glacier walk* A limited group of 10 people will be guided on the surface of the glacier. If time permits, we will walk to the middle moraine stream of this wonderful glacier. Outstanding photos are guaranteed! *Please note that there are some reservations already.* *Return hike* We have to leave the Märjelensee area latest at 4 pm in order to catch the last afternoon cablecar at 6 or 6.30 pm. Anyone who likes to stay longer or have dinner in a restaurant at Fiescheralp can take the last cablecar down at 9.45 pm (no cablecars between 6.30 pm and 9.45 pm). *Gear for the hike* What should you wear? Well, you definitely should bring hiking boots (simple running shoes are not sufficient). If you have a pair of hiking poles, bring them. Make sure you have some light gloves, a cap and a jacket available as the evening can get cold. A spare shirt is comfortable as well. That's it. *Gear for the glacier surface walk* If you are confirmed participant of the glacier surface walk, you need some durable gloves and long pants as the glacier surface is really sharp edged. Also bring band-aid and a small bandage for first aid. *Important: As we walk on a rope, you need a harness*. You can rent a harness at every mountain sports shop. In case you have no possibility to rent one, please contact me (@108665887827650124203). No crampons needed. *Photo gear* This walk is about landsAletsch Glacier Walk2012-08-18 08:00:0012

Looking back

Before disappearing into the undergrowth, this leopard glanced back once more. It had been lying next to a termite mound when we appeared around the corner and unwittingly disturbed it (Mana Pools, Zimbabwe).

On the look-out

Together with 2 siblings, this cheetah was on its way to mark territory and to look out for potential prey. I was lucky to be able to observe them as they walked alongside the road for quite some time before disappearing into the bushes.

An African long tailed or magpie shrike

The Magpie Shrike often performs co-operative breeding, with the breeding pair and some helpers, usually young birds from the previous brood.
The male drives away the rivals, but the boundaries of the territory are established with calls and songs. The Magpie Shrike feeds on arthropods, ants, termites, grasshoppers, mantises, millipedes and large grubs. It also takes lizards, mice and fruit and berries. Fresh and rotting meat is also eaten.

Watering a self-made boat in Zanzibar

I always marvel at the clever craftsmanship of African children. They don't have many toys, so they make the most ingenious ones themselves. I was watching this boy as he tried out his self-made sailing boat in the shallow waters of low tide. Even though the photo was shot with a cheap point-and-shoot at the time, it remains one of my favorite captures. For

Watering a self-made boat in Zanzibar

I always marvel at the clever craftsmanship of African children. They don't have many toys, so they make the most ingenious ones themselves. I was watching this boy as he tried out his self-made sailing boat in the shallow waters of low tide. Even though the photo was shot with a cheap point-and-shoot at the time, it remains one of my favorite captures. For

African wild/painted dogs at play in Kruger

On my last 10-day visit to Kruger, I was lucky to see and observe three different packs of wild dogs. The dogs depicted below were members of a particularly active group, which went off into the thickets to hunt but returned again to pose for me soon thereafter :)

Fishing companions

On an early morning outing I observed these two fishing companions - a saddle-billed stork and a hammerhead - at the rapidly receding water of a waterhole. The saddle-billed stork was more successful but every so often a fish would escape his searching bill and then the hammerhead would pounce on it.

On the way to Sossusvlei

Two springbuck on their way to Sossusvlei, Namibia. It never ceases to amaze me, how these animals manage to survive in such barren and hostile surroundings. To me they are encouragement to continue under circumstances when life starts to appear rather "barren and hostile". Wishing you a good Sunday!

A young rhino on the run

In this case, the rhino was running away from another bigger rhino, which was bullying it. Both were kicking up much dust and picking up an amazing speed. Unfortunately the rhinos have not yet realized that their biggest enemies come in human form. Over 1200 rhinos were poached in South Africa alone last year, another rise of 20%. When and where will it all end?

A hyena at sunrise

scanning the horizon for the sight of some potential prey. Although hyenas are usually regarded to be scavengers, they are quite successful hunters in their own right, catching their prey with their teeth rather than the claws. Hyenas are primarily nocturnal animals, but sometimes venture from their lairs in the early-morning hours.

The Namaqua chameleon

has adapted in an amazing way to cope with desert conditions. It excretes salt from nasal glands to conserve water and digs holes to aid the thermoregulation. Change color helps to control temperature, becoming black in the cooler morning absorbs heat more efficiently than a lighter grey color to reflect light during the heat of the day. I found this one in the middle of the Namib desert.

Patterns in the dunes

The wind and animals leave patterns on the sand of the huge dunes lining the coast of Namibia.
I used to work in Walvis-Bay many years ago, traveling there from Swakopmund on a daily basis. It was fascinating to witness the artistic looking patterns of and on the dunes, only there for a short time before the elements and animals again created a new piece of art.

Sossusvlei (Namibia) is an area characterized by the highest sand dunes in the world. The dunes have colors of vivid pink-to-orange, a result of a high percentage of iron in the sand. The oldest dunes are those of a more intense reddish color.

It's world rhino day today
enticing me to post an image of a black rhino that I took in Namibia recently. Black rhinos are smaller, have pointed snouts and are more aggressive than white rhinos. They are also browsers and you can see this one feeding on a thorn bush (and not grass as the white rhinos do). If you examine a black rhino's droppings, it is interesting to see that twigs are chewed off at an angle of 45°.

An African painted dog
crossing the Olifants River (KNP, South Africa). These Cape hunting dogs are unique to Africa and are endangered as they face shrinking room to roam and are quite susceptible to diseases spread by domestic animals. They have only four toes per foot, unlike other dogs and live in packs that are usually dominated by a monogamous breeding pair.

The African penguin  

is also widely known as the "jackass" penguin for its donkey-like bray.  Like all penguins it is flightless, with a streamlined body, and wings stiffened and flattened into flippers for a marine habitat. It has distinctive pink patches of skin above the eyes, which help them to cope with changing temperatures. When the temperature gets hotter, the body of the African penguin sends more blood to these glands to be cooled by the air surrounding it. This then causes the gland to turn a darker shade of pink. 
The African penguin is a pursuit diver and feeds primarily on fish and squid. Once extremely numerous, the African penguin is declining due to a combination of threats and is classified as endangered. It is a charismatic species (Wikipedia).

An impala-oxpecker coalition?

Oxpecker/mammal interactions are the subject of some debate. They were originally thought to be an example of mutualism, but recent evidence suggests that oxpeckers may be parasites instead. Oxpeckers do eat ticks, but often the ticks have already fed on the ungulate host and no statistically significant link has been shown between oxpecker presence and reduced ectoparasite load. Oxpeckers have been observed to open new wounds and enhance existing ones in order to drink the blood of their perches (Wikipedia)
