Showing the fountain in front of the Southbank Centre in London, UK.
The fountain is called “Appearing Rooms” and is a work of Jeppe Hein. The idea is that jets of water shoot into the air, creating ‘rooms’ that disappear as quickly as they emerge, inviting visitors of all ages to try their luck at predicting its next move.
A macro insect is always tricky – lots of camera shake going on. The size of the water drops give you the idea of how small the fly was.
This was taken in my back garden, unfortunately the season for macro photographing bugs is rather early (rarely to see and still quite small – looking for some plump spiders this summer)
Thunderstorms: Romans thought them to be battles waged by Jupiter, who hurled lightning bolts forged by Vulcan. Christian doctrine accepted the ideas of Aristotle’s original work, called Meteorologica, that winds were caused by exhalations from the Earth and that fierce storms were the work of God.
Ok, but the scenery was really impressive the time the picture was taken at Lake Starnberg near Munich.
When you’re dreaming about fish this could mean the following:
Taganga near Santa Marta is not the idyllic fishing village it once was, but local authorities have realized some tourism implementation on the front beach and tried to improve the infrastructure. It still has charm and might be a nicer place than Santa Marta.
The photo shows the main beach which is shared with the harbor of Taganga. It’s small and simple but good for swimming but will be very crowded on weekends by Colombian tourists. Good scuba diving is available in the nearby tayrona national park and there are plenty of hotels.
I always stayed in the Hotel Casa Blanca directly at the beach. Que bacano!
Never look back unless you are planning to go that way. Reflection is certainly imperative, too much reflection though is paralysing.
Or a quote by Don Henley: “…a little voice inside my head said don’t look back, you can never look back…”
Worst thing to do obviously is to look back again in anger.
On the 26 November 1944 a Royal Air Force Hawker Typhoon fighter hit the pier and then crashed onto the beach. The pilot sustained head injuries.
