Bordeaux Palais de la Bourse

Place de la Bourse is part of the Port of the Moon, Bordeaux, which has been listed by UNESCO as World Heritage since 2007. The royal square is a fine example of the outstanding urban ensemble that was built in the 18th century, during the reign of King Louis XV. The spectacular setting of Place de la Bourse on the edge of the Garonne River shows a monumental succession of identical buildings that form a continuous and balanced building curtain.

Sunset in Switzerland

The view of Château de Chillon at sunset time. Chillon Castle is located on a rock on the banks of Lake Geneva. The water castle is the most visited historic building in Switzerland. For nearly four centuries Chillon was the residence and profitable toll station of the Counts of Savoy.

On my way to Tre Cime

I was headed to Tre Cime in South-Tyrol, Italy to spend the whole evening and admire the landscape. However, even it was mid-May, the road was closed by snow. So we decided to do some hiking and enjoy the lakes way below. A marvelous sunset appeared as the sun started to go down behind the hills.
