drawing challenge 185: Riff / reef

Schon immer hat mich die Unterwasserwelt fasziniert und vor allem die Korallenriffe mit ihren vielen Farben und bunten Fischen und "Blumen".

Ich bin gerne unter Wasser und tauche viel, wenn ich schwimme. Und zwar nicht, weil ich nicht gut schwimmen kann, sondern weil unter Wasser alles so schwerelos ist und die Geräusche gedämpft sind.

Richtig tauchen mit Sauerstoffflasche war ich noch nie und würde mich es wohl auch nur in einem Schwimmbecken trauen.

Denn so sehr mich das Meer mit seinen Riffen fasziniert, habe ich doch auch großen Respekt und auch Angst davor. Was schwimmt da als Schatten unter mir? Ich bin sogar schon mal vor meinem eigenen Schatten erschrocken und hektisch davon geschwommen, um ihn abzuhängen, was nicht möglich war :-)

Wenn ich im Meer bade, geht meistens meine Phantasie ziemlich mit mir durch und ich denke sofort an alles mögliche Getier, was mich von unten anknabbern könnte.

Also schaue ich mir die schönen Korallenriffe in Dokumentarfilmen an.

An all das musste ich denken, als ich die nächste Lektüre für meinen Literaturkreis vor mit liegen hatte:


Book: Reef

Ich weiß noch nicht, warum das Buch diesen Titel trägt, da ich noch nicht tief genug eingetaucht bin.

Und in meinem Bücherregal hab ich noch das hier gefunden:


Book: Shark Trouble. True Stories about Sharks and the Sea

Book: The Deep
Was denkt ihr zum Thema Riff?

Das mit dem InLinkz klappt noch nicht bei mir, daher werde ich euch alle hier verlinken, wenn ihr mir sagt, dass ihr dabei seid (wer sich schon für die DC angemeldet hat, braucht sich nicht mehr melden).

Habt einen guten Tauchgang.


It has always made me the underwater world fascinates and especially coral reefs, with their many colors and colorful fish and "flowers".

I like being under water and dive a lot when I'm swimming. This is not because I can not swim well, but because everything is so weightless under water and the sounds are muffled.

Right diving with oxygen bottle I've never been and I would probably be trusted even in a swimming pool.

Because as much as I am fascinated by the sea with its reefs, I have great respect and even fear. What floats as a shadow beneath me? I am even scared to talk in front of my own shadow and frantically swam them to hang him, which was not possible :-)

When I bathe in the sea, mostly my imagination goes quite through with me and I immediately think of all sorts of animals, which could chew me from below.

So I look at the beautiful coral reefs in documentaries.


In all that I had to think, when I had the next reading for my literature circle in front are with:


step to first picture

I don't know why the book bears this title because I'm not immersed deep enough.

And in my bookshelf I still found this:


step to the next two pictures

What do you think about Reef?

The Inlinkz does not work yet with me, so I'm going to link all here, if you tell me that you are doing (who has already signed up for the DC, need no longer report).

Have a good dive.

  4. I'm not worried about what's under me when I swim in the ocean, but then I live in a safe ocean zone. Maybe if I lived in Australia I wouldn't be so calm about it...lol. Loved this week's challenge; thank you for that Katrin. :D

  5. Liebe Katrin,
    your blue books make me curious. Literaturkreis? Tell me/us more, please!
    Do you know Joe Bunni? He is a dentist from Paris (and my dear friend M. is his patient), but he is also a documentary filmmaker and a photographer: '+/-5metres' was on arte and has shown a wonderful water world with beautifulest reefs!
    Thank you very much for hosting with this fantastic theme.

  7. dear katrin, first of all, I am sorry I didn't make it. despite saying I would. but something big came up over here. something really big and really good! more on this very soon.

    reefs are pure magic to me; the color, the muted noises (like you've said) yand sharks. as lomg as I can remember, I always had a deep passion for sharks. their strength, the slightly creepy, but royal attitude, I totally adore them. dolphions are cute, but I would prefer sharks to them any time.

    I wish you a very good week ahead and can tell you, your theme has inspired me to make a visit to the berlin aquarium very soon!

  8. Hello Katrin. Thank you for suggesting such a great theme. What gorgeous book covers you have in you shelves.

    While walking along the beach this week I thought about coral reefs. My sea is too cold for coral or man eating sharks! We do have a lot of whales, the greatest divers of all. Maybe it's time for a trip to the Vancouver Aquarium with the grand girls. xo

  9. The underwater world has always been fascinating for me. But I totally agree about the scary parts...feel unsure, too, when I think about the creatures that might swim below me. I only snorkeled once or twice along a mediterranean reef and suddenly there was a cave next to me which scared me a lot. But I loved swimming over a large shoal of tiny little silvery fish, that was amazing and so beautiful!
    Had to laugh about your scary shadow, haha!

  10. Das ist eine schöner und interessant zu lesender Text!

    Ich habe Deinen Blog über Tammie Lee angefunkt. Grüße aus dem Bayerischen Wald - hier gibt es interessante Tümpel mit Forellen und geheimen Tiefen im Dunklen und Flüsse Quirlwasser und mit Perlmuscheln (Schwarzer Regen).

  11. Vielen Dank für diese DC.
    So viele Bücher farblich und passend zum Thema bietet mein Bücherregal nicht. Aber ich tauche auch sehr gern - aus den gleichen Gründen.
    Viele Grüße von Lucia
