Canada: Montreal Town Hall

Night shot of Montreals city hall
Quite decorative, but slightly less colourful lighting would have been more to my taste: the city hall of Montreal at night.

Canada: old and new in Montreal

Filed under: — lbobke @ 8:48 pm

church and modern building in Montreal

Even the “gothic” cathedrals are less old than they look. Still, the contrasts are truly photogenic: small, “medieval” churches in the shadow of modern skyscrapers.

Chile: Lake and Volcano

lake near Panguipulli
One of the nicest ways of crossing from Argentina into Chile is the “Paso Hua Hum” a combined bus and boat trip. You then come through the area of the “seven lakes”.
This picture was taken in Panguipulli, a small but pleasant town.

Egypt: small temple.

Filed under: — Laurenz @ 7:15 pm

temple near Aswan, Egypt
my slides, I exactly remember a place but not its name.
Where did I come across this small temple? it must have been near Aswan (Egypt) and the head of Hathor is clearly visible on the left. Maybe it was on Bigga island. So, if anyone here knows the answer, please tell me!

Chile: Torres del Paine

Filed under: — Laurenz @ 6:08 am

Torres del Paine, Chile

A fascinating short trek leads to the Torres del Paine, but unfortunately, the weather is unpredictable.
When we arrived there, the famous peaks were barely visible in the fog.
Still it surely was worth the effort: the Torres del Paine National Park has so much to offer, including crystal clear lakes and many wild animals.

Chile: El Tatio

Filed under: — Laurenz @ 7:10 pm

chile-23a.jpg
High up in the Chilean Andes, at about 4000 meters, there is a famous geyser: El Tatio.
In the early morning, this is a truly magical place with ice, steam and many colours.
However, this spectacle only lasts for a short time, a few hours after sunrise there isn’t really much to see.
This is why many travelers leave San Pedro de Atacama at night and reach the place before sunrise.
It’s worth it. Take some hot beverages and warm clothes - it can be bitterly cold with temperatures well below 0.

Seems you have to wait for a while until someone takes your order. In any case, I’ve seen more inviting restaurants!

If New York has any such thing as a “city center”, then it would be the area around Grand Central Station.

It is fascinating how the colours change with the time of day. This also is the Chrysler building, this time the photo was taken from the Empire State Building in the evening.

New York Skyline
It’s only a matter of perspective: from aboard the ferry, even the New York skyline seems to be quite small.
