In Photos: From the Facebook Page XIV

fluffy reeds

Fourteen posts in this series. Who’d have thought it? In that time the Facebook Page of this site has grown somewhat, with us about to cross the 100,000 fans line. Naturally we’re delighted about that.

Still, not everyone uses Facebook, and even those of you that do probably aren’t on it every minute of the day. So, in case you missed any of the photos we’ve shared there over the last couple of months, here are some of the most popular ones for your visual enjoyment!

Note – this post is best viewed in as large a browser window as possible, using Chrome, Firefox, or a mobile browser. Just not IE. I can’t figure that browser out I’m afraid…

Long room library book of kells_PPS1

The long room in Dublin’s Trinity College is a highlight of any visit to Dublin. Even if getting a photo without anyone it it is a bit of a challenge.

Another one from my trip to Ireland last year. The scenery in this country is just spectacular.

Griegs house Bergen scaled

This is where the composer Grieg lived for a good portion of his life, just outside the picturesque town of Bergen in Norway. If you’re visiting Bergen, we have some ideas for things to do right here.

Wave Rock

The Wave Rock in outback Western Australia is really quite remarkable as a geological structure, looking as it does like a five meter high frozen wave of rock. Naturally, a picture of oneself surfing said rock is de riguer when visiting…

Sunset rainbow 1

Oh, New Zealand. So pretty. This was a sunset on the North Island in the Tongariro National Park, where we were lucky enough to be based for a few months during our year in New Zealand. A country you have to visit.

Lake Tekapo Reflections

Also New Zealand – this time down on the south island. Check out my series of guides to New Zealand to get more inspiration for your trip!

berlin wall and office buildings

In March of this year I led a photowalk around Berlin with my photography company Lightmoves Creative. It was such a success, that we’re doing another one in Paris this June! It would be wonderful to see you there.

Barcelona has everything – food, architecture, mountains and more. And even a beach. It’s possibly my favourite town in Europe. Sorry Venice.

Mall corridor Brussels

I whizzed through Belgium last year on a whistle stop tour of Europe. We spent more time in Ghent than in the capital, but we did manage to get a few photos during our time there. Enough to convince me that we need to go back anyway..

Costa brava sky sunset scaled

Ah, that Costa Brava coastline. A handy place for a nice sunset after a long day of cycling

Boat in Greek harbour

Greece! I’m actually just back from spending a few days in Greece, but I snaffled this shot last year at the end of a yacht race I was lucky enough to take part in, from Brindisi to Corfu. I’ll be sharing a lot more from my recent visit to Athens in upcoming posts, stay tuned!

Dani sunset tempelhof airport Berlin

While I was in Berlin, I was able to spend a bit of time exploring parts of the city I’ve not visited before, as well as meeting friends to enjoy sunsets like this one, at the magnificent abandoned Tempelhof airport. If you only do one thing in Berlin, make sure it’s a visit to this city centre airport at sunset. Ideally with friends, and beer.

Sagrada Familia outside reflection 2 scaled

I already mentioned Barcelona. It’s hard not to visit without popping in to see at least one of Gaudi’s works, and the Sagrada Familia is a pretty good choice. Over one hundred years in construction, and still counting, rumours are that it might be finished in the next couple of decades. I’m not holding my breath, but in my opinion, it’s pretty spectacular as it is. If you’re looking for more ideas for filling your time in Barcelona, check out our suggested itinerary for a day in Barcelona.

Playa montanita houses reflected in beach

When we visited Ecuador in the Winter of 2013/14, my first goal was to spend some time near or on a beach. The town of Montanita sated that need for a week or so, even if we later decided that Canoa was our favourite beach town in Ecuador.

Alpine lake reflection scaled

New Zealand again! Yep, it’s a stunning place. We need to get back out there with more photography equipment! This shot is taken near the end of the Routeburn track in the Fiordland National Park.

sunset blossom scaled 2

One of the things I love about living in non-tropical climates are the variations in the season, with Spring being a real highlight, particularly when everything is exploding into blossom. So here’s a photo from France of that very thing happening!

Athens old port from the sea

And finally, a last shot from my recent trip to Athens. Like I said, I’ve got a whole host of photos from that week long trip to share, so watch out for some posts coming your way soon.
