Lake Alpsee, Bavaria, Germany. Lake Alpsee is located near two beautiful castles in Bavaria - Hohenschwangau and Neuschwanstein. We arrived at Neuscchwanstein and decided to take a hike around the lake. It was fabulous. I walked down to the water. Water is crystal clear and a beautiful blue. You can also take very pleasant walk around the lake and visit these two castles. This area in Germany is simply amazing.

Golden Dunes. Yet next view from Egypt. Pretty amazing panorama of the golden dunes of the Nile, nearby Aswan. Shot from small sailing boat while traveling to small and authentic Nubian village.

The Canary Islands dragon tree is a subtropical tree-like plant native to the Canary Islands. It is the natural symbol of the island of Tenerife, together with the blue chaffinch.


Thank you so much for your submission. Have a great weekend.

This peaceful lake with swans can be found just outside of the town of Skalica in Western Slovakia. Home to about 15,000 people, Skalica is a charming historic town with impressive architecture, vast vineyards and beautiful natural surroundings.



Thank you so much for your submission.

Location: Westminster Abbey, London. There isn´t much to say about the abbey. It is simply a London must. A gorgeous work of architecture full of history. Poet´s corner is a delight for literature fans. The inside and outside are completely breathtaking. There are plenty of notable names buried there, like Isaac Newton, Charles Darwin, Stephen Hawking, Shakepeare and Charles Dickens.



What a spectacular piece of the architecture the Westminster Abbey is. Thank you so much!

Preikestolen, Norway
View down the Preikestolen platform above the Lysefjord-fjord. The rock formation is about 600 meters above the sea level.
If you are traveling in Norway this highlight is definately a must visit destination.


What a beauty!

Winter time in Reykjavik, Iceland is still with any snow yet. But when the sun turns on for a moment you can feel the energy. Only few hours per day can see the view like that becouse of winter dark period here.


I am sure it's on its way. It is taking its time here as well.

Happy new year everybody! I took this shot the day after Christmas close to the town of Nafplio, in Greece, right next to Karathona beach. I am standing on Argolida and on the opposite side, around 30 km away is Arkadia.The sea in between is the Argolic Gulf.



That looks so peaceful. Happy New Year to you and your fams as well.

The freezing port

Taken out today from the deep deep archives. This shot was made in January 2014 when I actually only started my photographic journey from landscapes and so on... Quite a nostalgia
A very cold winter morning at the gates to the port of Klaipeda. Amazing colors of very humid and very cold air on sunrise
You can see nice port panorama with some vessels, portal cranes and some higher buildings of the city

Enjoy the view!

Simply stunning! Have a great day.


Bavaria, South Germany
Today I want to share a picture of my hometown in the very south of Germany with you. I took it 2 weeks ago when I went home to spend Christmas with my parents.


Fabulous capture. Thank you so much for sharing with all of us.


My pleasure Tomas! Finally have some time again to participate on your great contest! Cheers!

Jurassic Coast
This beautiful scenery is part of the World Heritage Site. It is the coast you won't regret visiting. The path along the white cliffs is well maintained and offers an unforgettable experience of mother nature. The mighty waters look incredibly blue. It is fascinating to see waves come and go, gently touching the cliffs.


What a beautiful part of the coast.

In the city of Valencia, Spain, there's a celebration called Las Fallas, where incredible monuments are built during the year, and exposed at that time. They normally represent a situation, a person, or an event, in a satirical way; and the amount of work and details in each falla (those typical monuments) is just incredible. As a tradition, at the end of the festivities, almost all of these marterpices are burned! And heres how a falla looks like:



That is pretty fascinating. It's very surprising to hear that almost all gets burned.


My thoughts exactly. Apparently, only the winning fallas escape. Here's what their fate looks like :)

A view of Barcelona from one of the towers of the La Sagrada Famila, the Gaudí’s unfinished masterpiece. The black silhouette corresponds to the one of the adorning sculptures of the tower of the Church. The photo shows the Agbar tower, one of the most emblematic postmodern constructions of this Mediterranean city.

Playing with the sun, the snow and the trees. I took this picture while being bored on a long surface lift during my latest weekend snowboarding. It was in Praloup, in the south alps ofFrance.


Nazare is a fishing town, south of Portugal. fresh fish are caught in the morning and then sun-dried on the beach for all to enjoy. Yummy, so delicious. You must try it.


The Castle of Edinburgh, Scotland.
The castle sits on a Rock in old town and reasearches shown that it was seized28 times in its 1100 years old history giving it the claim ‘ the most attcked in the world and the most besieged castle of the Great Britain.
This was beautifully lighted up and decorated for the new year.


Lake Attersee (Salzburg/Austria)
This picture was taken in July this Sommer on a One-Day-Familytrip. The Mountain behind the lake is the Schoberstein. Also a nice place for hiking !
