Peaceful day

Calm and peaceful day on Borneo. Mother nature at its best!  I am hearing whisper in the wind and the gentle breeze touches my skin.

Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.

– Albert Einstein

Summer evening

This photo is one of my earliest works, and I think it belongs to the best ones. It is important for me so that the shot retains the memories of the wonderfully spent summer with lots of interesting adventures. The road on the picture is always calling me to move forward. Looking at this road I always want to go on a journey searching for new adventures! The road awaits you too!

The Sicilian coast

I took this shot in the resort town of Taormina. It was a very hot day. The temperature was over 45 °C. To walk around and make photos was VERY hard. I wanted to give up and quickly go swimming in the sea. Due to the fact that the city is located high on the mountains you have to use cable car in order to get to the beach. If you carefully look at the picture you can find it. Taormina is located high in the mountains and it offers great views of the coastline and mount Etna. In addition, there are many historical attractions in this town, such as:  the ancient Greek theatre, the ancient churches, the ruins of the temples. If you’re looking for a truly stunning and very romantic place in Sicily this wonderland is your answer.

Amazing Fact:

Taormina has an ancient theatre which is one of the most celebrated ruins in Sicily. This theatre offers best views of the Mount Etna.

Welcome to the ranch!

Bulldog-cowboy welcomes you to our ranch!

This photo was taken spontaneously while I was driving the car in the neighbourhood of Kiev. I wasn’t even going to take photos. I had other affairs. This event proves the rule – you never know where a good shot expects you. Always take your camera with you in order not to miss great shots!

Amazing Fact:

The largest Ranch in the world is actually in Australia. The Anna Creek ranch is 5.8 Million Acres (Larger than Israel).

Sunrise in the paradise…

The first minutes of another sunny day on the Maldives. These paradise islands always have stunning sunrises and sunsets. I get up early every morning here to meet the dawn. And nature favoured me with amazing shots.

Amazing Fact:

The Maldives has about 200 inhabited islands.

Sunrise over Singapore

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.

Amazing Facts:

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.

View of Mountain Kinabalu

Mount Kinabalu is the highest point of the island of Borneo. Its height is about 4090 meters. There is a reserve around the mountain that is called Kinabalu national park.  It is located on the west coast of Sabah, Malaysian Borneo. The reserve covers an area of 754 square kilometeres surrounding Mount Kinabalu.

If desired, you can climb to the top with an organised group and see the sunrise. This challenge is not for weak people. Once you reach the peak you will be given a certificate of conquering the top. By the way, Mount Kinabalu had been declared as “World Heritage Site” by UNESCO.

We were very fortunate that the peak of the mountain was pretty clear visible. Our guide said the top of the mountain is almost never seen because of the constant cloud cover. Here it rains regularly throughout the year, so the slopes of the mountains are green and covered with dense vegetation. If you take a look at the centre of the photography you can see a waterfall.

Amazing fact: 

Mount Kinabalu National Park has over 5,000 different species of plants and animals, including 326 bird species and over 100 mammal species. Biologists estimate that the park has a staggering number of plant species—probably between 5,000 and 6,000 species—more than are found in North America and Europe combined.
