In the Bay of Islands in New Zealand, back in 2008 during a boat trip. Today got two versions, one in black & white and one in color.

Wish you all a wonderful peaceful weekend!

Slowly dying sunset

Slowly dying sunset

Slowly the sun glided over the water on its way across the horizon, underway shedding off light. The waves slowed down as they settled for the night.
The boats enjoyed the calmness of the evening and anchored their stay. As the sun touched the mountain, a path of light came my way. As my feet stood in the sand, my eyes gazed upon the sky. At this precious moment no need to wonder why. Appreciating that nothing lasts forever, the beauty lies in accepting death like its now, not never. Life has meaning in every moment met, just like a slowly dying sunset.

De baai

Beautiful sunset at a local beach bar close to Split in Croatia. Really vivid colors and great scenery to enjoy. This is a panorama made of 3 vertical shots to capture the colors in the sky as well as the foreground. Do enjoy and click one time for enlargement!

Holland Amerika Lijn

Holland Amerika Lijn

As i promised yesterday, this post is the original for Abstract Sky. It is a picture of the old warf building for Dutch travelers going to America, hence the name Holland Amerika Lijn (lijn is Dutch for line). It now serves as a hotel and it is very nice indeed to see this old building in between the giant cruise ships and the two towers surrounding this famous building.

Can you recognize the pattern from Abstract Sky? I can’t actually, but it’s probably part of the sky hehe

Holland-Amerika Lijn6_klein

A picture from the Kop van Zuid, a famous strip of land in Rotterdam. The building in the building is the former headquarters of the Holland-America line, a boat company which brought a lot of passengers from Holland to America. Now it serves as a hotel, while being surrounded by giants.

One of the many castles in Scotland, this is actually only one of two we visited while on holiday. The other being Edinburgh Castle.
This castle is located on the nort-west part of the Isle of Skye and the view was amazing. And the castle gardens are beautiful too!

btw, there is a strange orangy coastline all along the island and it’s also visible here on the second photograph. Guess it’s some kind of kelp πŸ™‚
