Landscape photography and travel
Our 2018 travel story started in Death Valley National park. We were chasing the Moon shadows looking for a place to shoot the Milky Way. In the Spring Andalusia enchanted us by its grand cathedrals, and dreamlike Alhambra Palace that seems came from the pages of Arabian Nights book. Summer was about vampires and werewolves that avoided us by all means. And the Fall was the prickliest season in vast and hot Arizona Desert.
On the grassy shores of the Pacific Ocean in Southern California lies a small town of Carlsbad, famous for the Flower Fields or, as they are also called – the fields of Colors and Dreams. Every spring from March to May, countless colorful ranunculus bloom here.
Lviv could very well set the world record by the sheer number of magnificent lions on its picturesque streets. The city was established in the mid-13th century by King Danylo Halytskyi, who named it after his beloved son Lev, which in Ukrainian means “Lion”. Since then, many lions have occupied Lviv. They are pretty much everywhere.
Today Amsterdam looks like it did in the 1600s, on old Dutch paintings – clouds blown past high gabled houses, churches, and bridges reflected in quiet canals. How many stories the city can tell, like aged seamen who is full of tales, that are not always proper in a good society… As many travelers before we start the walk at the Central Station that resembles art museum. It sits at what was the harbor entrance, where gally sailors debarked from the ships and were met by ladies with red lanterns.
