One Day in Ticino, Switzerland

Images property of @jessestlouis

Let's start with a trip to Ticino with @jessestlouis as our tour guide. In this ten minute video we can see lots and lots of beautiful and picturesque scenery, starting from rivers and waterfalls to bridges and an amazing countryside. All of this is of course perfectly taped and commented by are tour guide so I guarantee you will enjoy watching it!

We took a day trip from Lucerne, Switzerland down to the beautiful region of Ticino near Italy. The Mediterranean influence was seen everywhere, from the architecture to the palm trees and blue waters. We found an epic natural water slide, some stone farmhouse ruins, a bridge jump and so much more during our brief time in this wonderful part of Southern Switzerland. -@jessestlouis

On this author's profile you can find many many more spectacular videos of exotic places and interesting trips. I recommend all travel enthusiasts to go and have a look, it's worth the time.

For our second post we have a simply amazing cover of a really beautiful song "Imagine". Hands down, this is one of my favorite covers I've heard in a long time. Not only because I adore the song, but because this collaboration was executed perfectly. The guitar sounds amazing and the voices are angelic. Great job everyone.

A spectacular acoustic duet cover of "Imagine" by John Lennon performed live on a beautiful summers day. We would really love to know what you think to our acoustic cover in the comments below! -@rexpearson

You've heard @rexpearson, go ahead and check out the song and don't forget to leave a comment and tell them what you think. I'm sure they'll be glad to hear your thoughts.

Season of autumn fogs

Images property of @biti

Now, let's take a look at some awesome photography with a very specific motive, autumn fogs. Of course you need to be lucky to get an opportunity to take such photos, but making those photos look exceptional has nothing to do with luck! It requires a lot of talent and dedication which @biti clearly has a lot. Great photographs!

Sometimes I don't even have to bother to find a theme for a photo, it just kind of shows up in front of me! It happened just today, I wake up early in the morning without an alarm, I don't even understand why I woke up. I got out of bed again with no idea why I hadn't continued to sleep, walking through the hallway of the house I looked out the window and saw fog.
It didn't take long for me to get dressed, get my camera, and head outside. I knew immediately where I was going to go, of course, to the canal. The fog was quite thick so visibility was only about 20 to 30 meters. -@biti

My 3D Pikachu!:D

Here we have a cute little piece of 3D modeling done by @fabiyamada. I can only say that it turned out pretty amazing. Trying to explain the post to you would be pointless, because I don't know the first thing about modeling, but if you are interested you should click the link and check out the step by step process from the author, someone who is very skillful and will definitely explain it better than me.

I admit it, learning 3D modeling hasn't been easy, and the software, Blender, is not intuitive (but it is free and super powerful), but I am focused on doing "simple" things and always try to implement a new technique with each model I make. It's still a very long journey before passing the noob phase, but it is so exciting and challenging, I can't wait to start my new personal project! -fabiyamada

This author is an exceptional graphic designer and you can find much more of their amazing work on their Steemit profile!

Burgruine Neuscharfeneck in 4K Relax Video, Pfalz | GERMANY

Images property of @sniffbiff

Finally, we have a really relaxing and gorgeous drone video. I want waste your time talking, just go ahead and check it out, I promise it's amazing. Here's a little info about castle you are going to see:

Castle ruin Neuscharfeneck in the Southern Wine Route. The castle ruin Neuscharfeneck is within walking distance from Dernbach, Ramberg or the forest parking lot Drei Buchen. It is situated 501 m above sea level and 280 m above the village of Dernbach, which lies on foot. Very striking is the 58 m long, 12 m thick and up to a height of 20 m towering shield wall.
The ruin is an extensive complex, 150 m long and over 60 m wide; its size is only surpassed by two other castles. Count Palatine Friedrich I, the "victorious", had the castle built in the first half of the 13th century converted into a large complex. It was set on fire during the Peasants' War and rebuilt and extended by Count Friedrich von Löwenstein-Scharfeneck around 1530, but was finally destroyed in the Thirty Years' War. -@sniffbiff

Drone photography is definitely one of my favorite types of art and this author has a lot of amazing videos for us it. One of my personal favorites is Relax Time: visual & sound -- 4K Urban & Nature Video and Free Ambient Music.
