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.
Taormina has an ancient theatre which is one of the most celebrated ruins in Sicily. This theatre offers best views of the Mount Etna.
Calm sunrise in the Maldives. The sea is quiet and the fish are not scared away by the screaming and floating tourists yet. Fish come very close to the shore searching for food. The water is so transparent that they are clearly visible. Among the fish coming close to the shore early in the morning, sometimes I even saw small reef sharks. Despite their intimidating appearance the sharks are safe for humans.
In the Maldives, every sunset and sunrise is great because of the huge and beautiful clouds. The damp climate and evaporation give photographers a chance to get another masterpiece.
Maldives is the lowest country in the world. Its ground level is averaged at 1.6 meters.
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.
