Perhaps, it's the most impressive natural phenomenonn I've ever seen: moon-glade on a cloud layer when you look at it from the top of the volcano.

Bois de la Cambre

Сrease marks. One checks ailerons before take off.
(Like water off a goose's back).

The Meteora in Greece

"Если б мишки были пчелами,
То они бы нипочем
Никогда и не подумали
Так высоко строить дом"
А. Милн "Винни-Пух"
"It’s a very funny thought that, if Bears were Bees,
They’d build their nests at the bottom of trees.
And that being so (if the Bees were Bears),
We shouldn’t have to climb up all these stairs."
A. Milne "Winnie-the-Pooh"

Between the Skies

There are two skies in La Palma: one is below - with clouds, the other one is above - with stars.

Starry Night (Eta Carinae vicinity)

“I often think that the night is more alive
and more richly colored than the day”
Van Gogh

Took this photo remotely from Tzech Maun observatory, which is in Australia. Nice, when you can enjoy sun at your place and observing stellar sky at the same time.

University Library in Leuven.

That's how the University Library in Leuven (Belgium) looks like.
In front of it there is a statue "Totem" with a huge bug stuck on a high steel needle (a work of the Belgian artist Jan Fabre).

Foggy Morning in Heidelberg

"Seltsam, im Nebel zu wandern!
Leben ist Einsamsein.
Kein Mensch kennt den andern,
jeder ist allein."

A Flock of Lazy Seagulls Fishing in Portugal

Indeed, why overstrain yourself? :) It's a lifestyle.
You'll not find any workaholics in that country. Perhaps, even among seagulls.

Ocean of Tears and Storms

"Singing in the sunshine, laughing in the rain
Hitting on the moonshine, rocking in the grain
Ain't no time to pack my bag, my foots outside the door..."

Led Zeppelin "The Ocean"

Rocks, flows and lentic water in Atlantic Ocean.
Porto, Portugal, September, 2010.

Lines of the Sky in Switzerland

Lugano - is a town in the south of Switzerland. Coincidently, during my visit there was fantastic exhibition of legendary Robert Mapplethorpe photography at the Modern Art Museum. Really enjoyed it.
Lugano Lake and surrounding mountains make this town to be a very pleasant place for week-end or even for vacation.
Interesting: in 1956 Lugano hosted the first Eurovision Song Contest.

Strasbourg Cathedral

Nice trip on week-end to Alsace-region in France. Strasbourg is cosy and very compact. Cathedral, as expected, impressed a lot. Especially, Astronomical clock inside. :)
Here is west façade of this attraction in Strasbourg. One day should travel there again.

Taking off in Florence

One would not believe that this cute bird was pictured in the centre of Florence (Italy). Nice city for walking in. It became one of my favourite destination in Italy since now.

Autumn in Amsterdam

In the port of Amsterdam
There's a sailor who dies
Full of beer, full of cries...
