Winter sunset over Kiev. It is a view of the residential area “Obolon”. In order to make this shot I didn’t have to go or climb somewhere. It’s just the view from my window. One day, looking out of the window I saw the unusual lighting of the lowering sun in the clouds and could not resist taking the picture.

We were walking all day around Florence, and by the end of the day by chance entered this observation point. The fact that this is the best point for taking photos of Florence was confirmed by the presence of many photographers with tripods. And I was one of them! I was very lucky with the weather conditions – very cute little clouds completed the panoramic view of Florence. On this image you can see almost all the major attractions of Florence. I am very satisfied with this shot and consider it one of the best works of mine.
On this photo you can see:
– At the centre of the photo you can see the Duomo (Florence’s most famous Cathedral).
– Slightly to the left there is a tower of the castle Palazzo Vecchio.
– Along the left side of the river the very first bridge is Ponte Vecchio.
Standard Italian language that the entire country uses to this day comes from the Florentine dialect.
Singapore has the largest port in the world. A huge number of ships are waiting for their turn to come into the port. It seems like this is not a reality, but a computer game. Invading force on many ships is coming to the shore and getting ready to attack. Just about the great battle to begin. The action takes place not on the Earth but on the another planet.
At the centre of the photo you can see the Park “Gardens by the bay”. If you take a look on the left side of the picture you will see The Conservatory Complex. It comprises two cooled conservatories – the Flower Dome and the Cloud Forest. Very extraordinary human-made sights – strongly recommend to visit if you are going to Singapore.
1. These conservatories won “World Building of the Year” Award at World Architecture Festival 2012.
2. Flower Dome is the worlds largest glasshouse without columns.
This shot was made from one of the Petronas Twin Towers – the symbol of the city and Malaysia in general. There is a stunning view of the city from the top floor of the tower. The height of this floor is about 375 meters. A total height of the building is 452 m. As yet, these twin towers are the highest ones in the world.
The climate of Kuala Lumpur is very hot, humid and extremely changeable. Just about half an hour after this shot was taken a strong tropical downpour hit the city.
“Kuala Lumpur” means “muddy confluence” in Malay language.
Amazing city with its own unique atmosphere. I enjoy walking in the city at night. The crowds are slowly dwindling away into the night from the streets, so you can feel deeper the atmosphere and the essence of the city. Unlike other cities, the Old Amsterdam has changed a little over the last hundred years. And that makes Amsterdam especially attractive.
Amsterdam is built entirely on poles. Its soil consists of a thick layer of clay. Therefore all buildings are built on wooden poles that are fixed in a sandy layer that is about 10 meters deep. The Royal Palace at Dam Square is built on no less than about 13,700 wooden poles.
This is a philosophical sculpture of Rain Man, which during any weather looks at the sky and sees … a drop. Nothing else, even if the sun shines brightly in this world. This is the concept – probably about the limitations an individual human being has. Dramatic sky allows to emphasise the meaning of the sculpture. This statue is located on the Landscape Avenue in the centre of Kiev. If you’re in Kiev, be sure to visit this place, it has collected a number of modern art sculptures. And there is a good observation point on Kiev too.
