From Freeze to Frog - AlphabetHunt for the F

in hive-190931 •  last month 

Welcome to my Hunting Success in the #AlphabetHunt challenge of Barbara @barbara-orenya and her Feel Good Community: illustrate 6 words (or concepts) starting with the letter of the week.

This weeks hunt goes for the Letter "F" #AlphabetHunt letter F - and the winners of the draw for the #E week [ENG-FR].

From Freeze to Frog

Hive AlphabetHunt - Letter F

Freezing Frozen Frost

AlphabetHunt F - Freezing Frozen Frost

Let's begin with something that we all are glad that it's over for a few months, but soon we will think again of the Wintertime with frosty leaves and icicles.

A while ago I have already posted another photo of the frozen branch above. I have photographed the frosty leaves on the same day in Šunikov vodni gaj in Slovenia.

Fence in Foggy Field

AlphabetHunt F - Fence in Foggy Field

Last November I made a little hike to a waterfall near my hometown Klagenfurt. It was early in the morning and outside of the forest and valley the farm fields have been quite foggy.

Flowering Fly Honeysuckle

AlphabetHunt F - Flowering Fly Honeysuckle

A few weeks ago I saw this interesting blossom on a tree. Because I had never before seen such a blossom I had to take a photo, of course.

My research took quite some time, but in the end I found that this is not only one blossom, but two blossoms of a tree called Lonicera xylosteum, which is commonly known as Fly Honeysuckle.

Fire Escape

AlphabetHunt F - Fire Escape

Many years ago we have spend our holidays in Italy and I took this photo of a fire escape from the hotel room. Today, after so many years, I have finally got the chance to use this photo for a post 😉

Forest Road

AlphabetHunt F - Forest Road

This is the road to the mountain pasture where our log cabin is, about which I was talking in my post this week about Memories.

It was a very nice morning when I took this photo and I was riding a bike with man power instead of horse power 😉

Two good Memories (Photo 52 Week #21 Memories)


AlphabetHunt F - Frog

The Common Frog (Rana temporaria) is also known as the European Common Frog. I have found this nice little guy or girl in the brook in the forest behind my parents house.

Because some of these photos are older I have used several cameras over the years (Canon EOS R, Olympus E-500, Olympus E-510, Olympus E-5) as well as my helmet camera Sena 10c Evo. So I have decided that I don't add the camera names or settings to the images, but the Exif data should be stored with the images anyway, just in case someone would be interested.

If you like my photos I would appreciate an upvote, nice comment or maybe you want to share my post on your blog 😊 ... and maybe you would like to follow me, so that you never miss a post from me.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog,
have a nice evening,

I was almost sure i would see fog in your selection. Your previous posts with foggy landscapes are outstanding. And you have double and tripple Fs!
I love all the photos. 😀

I wanted to make all photos at least double, but I couldn't find more matching F-words for the other photos 🙃

Good morning and thank you so much that you like my post, Neli, to read your nice compliment in the morning made my day to a good day 😃

I wish you a wonderful weekend.

Cheers and !BEER

It is all my pleasure 😀
I wish you lovely weekend!

What a lovely selection Johann. I haven’t seen a red frog here but he/she is a great choice. Great looking eye of the frog in top photo.

Frosty clovers/shamrocks and the forest road to the cabin are also favorites. It’s hard to pick as they are all excellent. Nice capture of the horizontal and vertical lines in the fire escape.

Fence in Foggy Field eh? I think this letter F came easy for you.

Have a great night!

Hi Jo, once again good morning and thank you so much that you like this little frog boy or girl too ... and also the other photos, of course 😀
I have no idea how to differentiate frogs (and most other animals either ;), but I think because this one is looking so nice, it has to be a girl 😉

You are completely right, during work I searched through my archive when I had time and making the post was easy then ;) I haven't thought about the next letters though 🙃

I'm just packing my stuff together and want to ride to my parents on my motorbike. Because of the changeable weather I have my raingear with me ;) 🌧🌦 - hope you don't need no umbrella this weekend.

Nice collection of F

Thank you very much that you like my post 😀

Cheers and !BEER

The fence in a foggy field gives you a triple bravo ! 😄
and I'm happy this challenge gave a chance to this fire escape picture to land somewhere 😉
Thanks for your beautiful photos in the hunt @johannpiber ❤️

Hihi, thank you so much, Barbara,
I thought I could add one or two F's to each photo, but then I couldn't find any 😉
Yes, this picture belongs to the oldest in my archives, and I think this challenge will help quite a few more of my oldies to be finally published 👍🙂

Cheers and !BEER

Love these photographs. Awesome detailing. Specially the Flowering fly Honeysuckle, these red frogs are not common for us. But they look great 👌

Good evening @pradeepdee6,
thank you so much for your nice words, I do really appreciate your kind compliments on my photos 🙂

This is a rather common frog here, although nowadays you don't see it often anymore. I was very lucky when I took the macro shots of this blossom, because the wind stopped for a short while 😉

Cheers and !BEER

Schön das du nach langer Zeit Zeit gefunden hast das Bild von der Treppe zu bearbeiten! Es gefällt mir sehr gut 👍🏻

Ich danke dir vielmals Maik - das is tatsächlich eines der ältesten Fotos in meinem Archiv 🙂

Cheers and !BEER

You must have read my minds because... I was going to post a frozen leaves (taken in Slovenia!!) but finally changed my mind. And I was going to submit Fence and a Fly (deleted just before posting, lol).
A love your fog very much, I think the most, and on the second place is forest road. I know, we all miss our travels...

That would have been funny though if you posted frozen leaves from the same country as I did 😉

I love fog and hope for some nice fog photos in Autumn, but first we all will hopefully have a beautiful Summer without any restrictions and measures.

Thank you so much for your kind words, dear @zirochka 🙂

Sending tips with @tipU - how to guide.

Thank you very much Jo 😁

You are most welcome, Johann. You don’t have to thank me as I often neglect to thank you for your generosity but I know and appreciate you 😊

A beautiful morning turned into pouring down rain. I hope your Saturday is nicer.

Good evening Jo,

yes, my Saturday was quite nice - I rode on my motorbike to my parents, had a very good lunch, although I didn't tell them I was coming. Then I have spent a few hours in the forest, played cards with my parents and my sister, who was also here, had lunch and in a view minutes I'm going to bed ... that was my complete day ;) lol

Tomorrow morning I want to take some macros in the garden and maybe a few birds come close enough that I can photograph them too.
My wife and my daughter will also come tomorrow morning, and maybe also my son, but I'm not sure.

Our weather stayed changeable, but it didn't rain and although it was pretty cold in the morning it is really nice outside now.

I hope for you that tomorrow the sun will shine again and you'll have a nice day, Jo 🙂

Cheers and !BEER

You day sounds wonderful and your parents must have loved seeing you. You are lucky to have the family in close proximity and you can visit easily.

My sister and two brother are all in different provinces and it’s a big trip to get together.

I talked with my sister on the phone today. We talked about flying out west (Alberta) as my brother had to have emergency surgery on his head. He is okay now and making a joke of it all. He send me a photo of the top of his head with the stitches and said jokingly “Bar Fight.“

He is still working in the oil sector in Alberta and had a fall awhile ago that caused bleeding in his skull. Then the other morning he had balance problems in Fort McMurray and they flew him to Edmonton for the surgery.

We couldn’t go out there anyway with the restrictions between provinces. She can’t even go into New Brunswick to her cottage.

That’s enough of my family’s mishaps. You had a great day and tomorrow sounds great too. 😊

Good morning Jo :)

well, actually I didn't want to make any comments today, but just sit here in the sun and hope some nice little birds will come by ;) but then I saw a few new F-posts and couldn't resist to comment, so I think I'll also quickly reply to the comments I have got ;)

I could tell you about my older sister, who has had something similar as your brother had in her head or better said brain. They drilled a few holes in her head, but this is long ago and I don't want to talk about illness and such, because we are to young for this ;)

It was pretty cold this morning, but when the sun came out it got nice and warm.

We have almost no restrictions anymore and travelling in Austria is no problem. in two weeks we also don't need no face masks anymore, except at some defined places. For me it is going a bit too fast, but I do hope our government is doing the right thing.

I hope your day is nice and you can enjoy this Sunday, Jo 😊

Cheers and !BEER

It’s nice when a few restrictions are lifting. It’s being done really slowly here. Tomorrow some restaurants can open but have to renovate the seating for distancing.

That’s quite something your sister had a similar operation as my brother. True we don’t want to talk about illness or operations..too young for that! 😳

Have a good night Johann.😊

We started to loosen our measures a bit earlier than your government, but now it goes a bit faster than I thought - we will see how everything will work out, but we will still be very careful, even without restrictions.

Have a great day, Jo 🙂

Week 7 of my contest just can now check the winners of the previous week!

Cool, thank you very much for rehiving my post, dear @pixresteemer, I appreciate your support very much 👍🙂

"Freezing Frozen Frost" "Fence in a Foggy Field." Wow! What a witty description!!! 😮 This F selection is simply fantastic, not to mention the description!!! 😉

I love the frozen leaves. Maybe because I haven't seen one, and haven't experience winter yet. Hahaha! 😂

Haha, I couldn't decide what to choose, so I took all, but for the other photos I couldn't find more words ;)

Winter is great, if is does not last too long and if there's snow. Last winter we had almost no snow, so everything was just dull and gray and not nice at all.

Thank you very much for your nice comment, @gingbabida, I wish you a great weekend 🙂

Cheers and !BEER

Hahaha! That's funny. 😂

Thank you. Have a happy weekend as well. 😊

You have a wonderful collection here @johannpiber!! My favorite is all of them but that red frog is pretty cool! 😊 💖

Hello @deerjay,
thank you so much for your kind compliment 😀
This little frog has had to wait for a long time to be shown to the public and I am very glad that you and other people like it 😆
Have a wonderful weekend.

Cheers and !BEER

You're most welcome @johannpiber! Wishing you a wonderful weekend as well! 🙂

So cool pictures @johannpiber.
The freezing frozen frost is just awesome👏. Its so perfect picture. And the foggy field, so beautiful. The flower so clear and focused image.
Great pictures, so natural and self explaining 🖤👏.

Thank you so much for the kind words you have found for my photos, @karishmasingh711, I really appreciate your comment.
Hope you had a nice day and that your weekend will be great 🙂

Cheers and !BEER


so I figure out to started doing triplets and doublets..

and I wonder if that was a fancy frolic foto-friendly frog then?..


nice images -> !BEER

ps. I enjoyed the foggy field and forest road most of them. and the frog, ofc.

I just couldn't decide which word to take, so I took all ;) lol

fancy frolic foto-friendly frog 👍🤣

Thanks a lot, @qwerrie - the forest road would also have matched the letter "E", because when I reached the mountain pasture I was more than exhausted ;)

Cheers and !BEER

hehehe :) was it really THAT frolic?.. i guess not, otherwise you didnt finish with such a great crystal detailed pics. (my baby is sending you her admires with the Frog, especially). And, she is totally aware this week is F week.... heh :/

Yepp, she is aware, but is her daddy too?
She likes my little frog? Cool :) I think this frog is the only frog I ever have photographed ... or I just can't remember another one ;)

Have a great Sunday @qwerrie and Baby 🙂

Cheers and !BEER

happy Sunday to you, too.
a nice video, and the firewood as well.

You like firewood?
Just photographed - should be enough for the next Winter 😉

wow -- thats a nice supply! is it your city house place?..

I not necessarily like firewood itself, and I dont like to make its supply, but I like to do campfire evry much. my granddaddy passed me his know-how when I was 6-7 year boy, and I practised a lot ever after. it would be better to say that I like it is being used, not for the sake of itself :P

the !BEER for you back, sir.

No, that's in the garden of my parents. There's much more than this - they don't need that much firewood anymore because they have a central oil heating now, but my father needs always something to do 😉

I like it when the wood burns in the oven or even better when there's an open fireplace.
When I was young we have had every single piece of firewood many times in our hands - from cutting the trees in the forest until carrying it into the house every day in winter 😁

I wish you a great day, @qwerrie 🙂

And cheers and !BEER 🍻

oops, I Forgot the most important part of the comment: !BEER
excuse me... a bit sleepy already.

Thanks for the !BEER 🍺

Wow. I like the selections. Fence in Foggy Field rocks my for picture. Very cool. Nice share.

Thanks a lot @dreamingirwin - I liked this photo very much too but since I took it I didn't have any chance to post it ... until the hunt for the F words began ;)

Now you have overtaken me and my hunt will take time 🤭 @johannpiber
But how else would it be interesting ?! Your first photo is great and all on F .... congratulations .... although I also like the frog somehow.
I'm going hunting 😉
Have a nice day 🌞

Yes 😁 but the F was not that hard and I have found some photos very quickly in my office besides my work ;)

Everybody likes this little frog - and I didn't want to post it for so many years, because I thought it was not that nice ... thank you so much, @suzana72, I wish you a successful hunt 🙂

Have a wonderful Sunday too 🙂

Cheers and !BEER

Yes, you're right, it's not that hard ... I even had a surplus ;-) I also had a frog ... but since there were other words ....
Thank you @johannpiber it was an interesting day for me .... and here is my frog

Have a nice evening! :-)

Good morning @suzana72 🙂

That's a cool big frog, but it looks very serious. I wonder what he is thinking ... maybe he wants to swim in the water, like the koi do 😉
I have just seen your F post and I liked it.

Have a great day 🙂

Lovely photos, Johann... the fence in the foggy field, the forest road - these are great but my favourite is the fire escape! :-)

Good morning and thank you so much Keith 😁

The fire escape? I didn't like that photo much and it has been waiting on my hard disk for years until I searched for F words and thought it might match 😊 I think changing it to black and white has made it somehow better.

Cheers and !BEER

Some photos work better in black and white, it's very true. I like it a lot in any case :-)

I don't know why, but I'm doing too few black and white editings, although I like monochrome photos, especially many long exposures.
Thank you very much Keith 🙂

A beautiful nature selection they are all well thought of but my favorite is the Fence in Foggy Field it has a mysteries spooky look about it 👍

Yeah, the fog was quite dense that day and even in the forest it looked very mystic, but beautiful.

Thank you that you like my post and for your kind comment, @bigsambucca, have a great day and week 🙂

Cheers and !BEER

Most welcome i do love foggy morning in the country it's so refreshing and magical.

Have a great day @johannpiber 😊

Me too, and although I am longing for a long and hot Summer after so many cold and gray months I am also looking forward to the colorful and foggy Autumn 😀
Have a great day too @bigsambucca 🙂

Cheers and !BEER

I agree we do need to have that mix it's makes life more challenging.

Have a great day @johannpiber 😊

👍 have a wonderful day too @bigsambucca 🙂

Cheers and !BEER

Thank you @johannpiber and you have a great day also 😊

Amazing what we can come up with when we get thinking , i especially love the Freezing Frozen Frost and the Fence in Foggy Field nicely done 😊

Good morning and thank you so much for your kind comment, @kohsamui99 😁
That's very true, and looking through the old images you had almost forgotten about is very interesting too.
Have a great day and week 🙂

Awesome shots! Nature doesn't stop to conquer your heart not even when it's completely frozen. I used to love to collect frozen leaves when I was a kid :D

... and what have you done with them? Put them into the fridge? 😉

Thank you very much, @gabrielatravels, I appreciate your kind comment. You are right, whether in the summer heat or frozen in winter, nature is always beautiful 😊

Have a great day and a wonderful week, @gabrielatravels 🙂

Cheers and !BEER

Yep, exactly! I used to keep them in small jars in the fridge! :D

Have a great week ahead! :)

Oops, I was only joking, but how cool is that? This idea is great, but I would never have thought about such. I guess the leaves stayed in there until your mother needed the space for freezing food 😉

Cheers and !BEER

Exactly, hahahaha

Had to visit to see what you brewed up with the letter "F", three leaf clover with frost an amazing shot, along with fly honeysuckle which I have never heard of.

Black and White fire escape most definitely a superb amount of detail showing this photograph.

Freedom of walking in fog along a fence for direction tends to direct ones mind into oblivion, escape a lost dreams...

Leaping into the new week, wishing you a good one like that gorgeous little frog that you refer to as common, it is very colourful and interesting!

Thank you for commenting my photos so nice, Joan, I really appreciate your kind words 🙂

Looking through my old photos has made fun and like the frog or the fire escape they finally got the chance to be released into the public freedom of the Internet - thanks to the #AlphabetHunt challenge of Barbara 😉

Cheers and !BEER

Going through the old photographs, all the memories and fun taking them takes you back in the moment for awhile.

Now to start scratching your head for the next one.

That's true, and there are so many photos which I would take very different today 😉

Yes, soon we'll have to search for the next letter, and even if some G-words have already come into my mind I wouldn't know any if you asked me now ;) lol

Fire escape.. didn't flashed to me. Great photos!

Thank you very much that you like my photos, @razeiv, I appreciate your kind comment 🙂
Just one question: what do you mean with "didn't flashed to me"?

Cheers and !BEER

Very much welcome .. I mean it didn't come to my mind before :)

Aha, now I got it - thanks a lot, @razeiv, I just didn't understand the meaning 😉

I sometimes use odd words being a story writer haha! Sometimes very odd that even it takes me time to interpret what I have actually typed. And cheers!

Never mind, thanks a lot for explaining - I don't write stories, but sometimes I also cannot read or understand what I have written 😉

Cheers and !BEER

Always a pleasure :)

Cloudy days to go for a walk or climb the mountain.

Right, but as long as the fog it is not too dense it is fine, and later all the fog disappeared anyway :)
Thanks, @truelovemom, have a great day 🙂

Cheers and !BEER

What a lovely selection of F's, I particularly love the Fence in Foggy Field, gorgeous photography!

Thank you so much for your nice words, I really appreciate your kind comment on my photos, @lizelle 🙂

I love fog - although I hope for a long and beautiful Summer I am also looking forward to a colorful and foggy Autumn 😉
