Living on the edge
Trees know how to walk the fine line between the heights of life and the abyss. Well, walking in a manner of speaking.
Path of most resistance
We walk on paths everywhere we go and if there isn't a path, we make one.
Summer, sun & clouds
Light is boring without some shadows, so clouds go nicely along with a sunny day.
The view from a local positive extremum of the elevation function towards the other local extrema is nice.
Behind gate three
The Monty Hall Problem get's a lot more complicated with more than 30 gates.
Broken window hypothesis
No, I think the train has long since left for this neighborhood.
The royal houses
Or maybe it was boroughs. Something that has a flag.
Or is it just "Ms. God"?
The mayor, who convinced his town to build this town hall, was a genius of manipulation.
I think the celestial bodies should make a tick and a tock, every orbit round their host.
All I see is duplicated functionality, but you can't argue with the sound ouput.
Maybe there were some drugs involved in the making of this building.
Ascent to heaven
I mean, 768 steps is pretty close to heaven.
Ascent to heaven II
More steps. A lot of 'em.
Summer Green II
A lake in summer, behind the actual green. Hah, get it?
A quarry somewhere in Osnabrück. Trust me, you do NOT want to meet the spiders that left those cobwebs.
Evening at the trains
Actually that's morning and I was just about awake enough to take this shot before seeking the next source of caffeine.
A lake in winter. Taken in Karlsruhe
With a sufficiently high density of bicycles, they lose ownership and become public property. At least in practice, albeit not in law.
This "lake" is actually called that. You don't get it? Oh come on, pick up a particle physics text book or two.
The summer sky above the rooftops contrasts nicely with the image of the sun setting the world on fire.
I wonder how they managed to stop round objects from rolling around the house.
Keeping the tree from bulging the ground around it, is true gardenry skill.
At the reef
An artifical reef-like environment in some zoo somewhere.
Tower of Biblio
This is the correct way to deal with shovel novels.
Look at me
Standing out is not hard when all your neighbors are genetically designed to be mushed into oil.
Broadcast dishes for this radio must conform to a maximum allowed size, as they tend to zap innocent pedestrians.
You wouldn't expect it, but ducks have a school of philosophy centered around the meaning of ponds.
How nobody built a treehouse there yet, is beyond me.
Preindustrial cargo ships
I wonder how many of those we'd need today to transport the same cargo as a container freighter.
By the river
Jumping from the branches into the water is not advisable, as this river is a whopping 30cm deep.
After a hard day, not everyone can be bothered to cook proper grass. Sometimes hay must do.
A lake in summer. Taken in Ulm
Preaching to the choir
The fancier your soapbox is, the more important your words are.
Seeking shelter in human food might not be the best survival strategy, though.
Your friendly neigborhood spider
On second thought, AAAAAaaaaaahh get it off me!
...is lazy. What? It's the Internet, after all.
Dividing man and sky or something metaphorical like that.
The Arena II
Much like the first, but bigger and better. Never saw any blood either.
Minecraft has the opportunity to turn everyone into the proud owner of a slaughterhouse. A slaughterhouse for unholy abominations that are precious for their bones, that can be used as fuel. Video game logic.
This is was greeted me at my doorstep on a new SP map one day.
Black Forest II
The foresty part of Black Forest. This would eventually cover the entire area around the main complex and be the main forest. Not shown: The Ghost Forest, a 100% birch forest placed on a frozen lake.
The business district of the Black Forest project. As the name suggest, it was completely underground and no tree in sight. I did not put Bender there, but I thought the vandalism was benign enough to keep it.
After quitting the ragequit, my second big project one that one now unknown server. It was even more ambitious than the Undergarden und naturally never completed before the server reset. Again.
The Undergarden, my first big project on some now unknown server. Naturally, the map was reset a day after I finished it and nobody but me ever saw the bloody thing. Ragequit.
The HUB's plaza. It doubled as roof for the underground parliament hall.
A monument dedicated to you. Yes, you know who you are.
It connected the HUB and the City In The Sky with Moria. The Moria end was, expectedly, a 150 block drop.
With working remote-triggered gates and the necessary wiring to add arrow traps. Never saw any bloodshed.
No time to explain
Come with me if you want to live and grab a towel on your way out. Trust me, I might be the Doctor.
In the mountains...
...of Dun Morogh there are plenty gnomes to kick, especially if you drop at the front gate of Ironforge with a horde of hordies in PvP gear.
When they said "cheap", Xemtotek did not expect how remote his house would end up. Only accessible with a fast steed and waterwalk at level 60 and above pre-Cataclysm. The view's nice though.
Germans love this fractal because it sounds so delicious. It must be, the 3D version has infinite surface area to soak up aroma.
The planet is covered in giant salt repositories, after all the water boiled up. The moon exists just past the Roche-limit and was kneaded by tidal forces until it melted.
The moons orbit way to close and there are way to many stars. This is way off. Way.
The planets of blue giants rarely harbor life and this one is no different. No atmosphere, intense radiation and no water. That's a tough sell even for tardigrades.
