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 Louvre in the last rays of the day

Although many people think that the modern glass pyramid in the centre disfigures the Louvre, I do not agree with them. It’s like the highlight which highlights the Louvre from the rest of French chateaux. It seems to connect the past and the present. And certainly it pleases the photographers! I almost have not seen pictures of the louvre without the pyramid.

Amazing Fact:

The Louvre has 8.5 million visitors a year and is the most visited museum in the world!

Singapore center at evening

Business Centre in Singapore at sunset. Due to the humid climate there are always great clouds here, and as a consequence there are captivating sunrises and sunsets here too. On the left side in the distance you can see the Singapore port. It is world’s largest and busiest port.

Singapore is a well-developed country. It has a highly developed and successful free-market economy. Singapore is one of the world’s leading business centres and a major destination for foreign investment. Anti-corruption laws are well enforced. Singapore has most open economy for international trade and investment.

Amazing Fact:

Singapore has the 40th largest economy in the world while Singapore is among the 20 smallest countries in the world, with a total land area of only 682.7 square kilometres.

Pirate ship

Pirate ship holds of which are full of gold! Childish dreams come true in Disneyland. From the time I was a little kid, I was dreaming about going to Disneyland, but the first time I did it I was 32. When I went there I was not really hoping for something special and was quite skeptical. But I was wrong. Disneyland allowed me to feel like a kid again! It is a great place both for adult and children.

Amazing Fact:

In 2012 Paris Disneyland had about 15.5 million visitors compared to 8.4 million for Paris’ Louvre museum and 6.6 million for the Eiffel Tower.

The Church of the Holy Trinity in Chernihov

Chernihov is one of the Old Slavonic capitals and it is famous for its churches. In ancient times it was one of the largest cities in Kievan Russia. Now Chernihov is a small quiet country town with beautiful churches, interesting museums, Antonievi caves and the picturesque nature around. Here it is a leisurely life. I relate the most pleasant memories with Chernihov.

Аmazing Fact:

The Church of the Holy Trinity was built in 1695. It was building for almost 17 years.

Amsterdam airport Schiphol

I love Amsterdam airport (Schiphol). In addition to the excellent service and design, it has a great observation platform from which you can watch the functioning of the airport. In other countries, it is absolutely forbidden. But here a lot of people can personally observe everything. You will be surprised by the fact how many people are involved in the process of airport so we could fly safely. I have never even thought before how it is complicated and well organized. Here you can stand for hours watching the process of loading of aircrafts and other technological processes taking place here. I wish other countries and airports have adopted a similar idea.

Amazing Fact:

Schiphol is ranking as Europe’s 4th busiest and the world’s 16th busiest by total passenger traffic in 2012. It also ranks as the world’s 5th busiest by international passenger traffic.

View of the Florence

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.

Amazing Fact:

Standard Italian language that the entire country uses to this day comes from the Florentine dialect.

Rain Man

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.

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.
