Photo Of The Day

We spent a few days in the coastal city of Valparaíso in Chile to view the famous street art and murals. The old neighbourhoods, set into the steep cerros (hills), are covered in this amazing work. I’m planning to post a gallery of this art in an upcoming post. Stay tuned!

We are still in Seville, enjoying a cappuccino and pastry in a little square off the main shopping street. I managed to squeeze off one frame as this scene unfolded in front of us. Click on image to view large.

Metropol Parasol in the Plaza de la Encarnación in the old quarter of Seville is composed of four wooden “mushrooms” and is reputed to be the largest wooden structure in the world. Completed in 2011, it measures approximately 150m x 70m and 85m high.

The ARoS Kunstmuseum in the city of Aarhus is an amazing modern art museum, not only for its collections, but for the building itself. Rebuilt in 2004, this 10-storey building houses one of the largest collections in Europe. The highlight is the 360º multi-coloured circular walkway along the top of the building with views of the city.  Click on image to view large.

We drove from Oslo to Bergen through the fjords spending a night in Vossevangen or Voss. Our accommodation, Store Ringheim Hotell was situated above Lake Vansvagnet and had beautiful views of the surrounding countryside. Caught this light hitting a farm across the lake just before the sun dipped below the mountains

If you’ve been to Stockholm, Sweden you’ve probably seen their amazing subway stations. They are a very popular tourist attraction and it can by quite busy during the day. If you go off-peak hours many of them are virtually empty. Be warned, tripods are not allowed for photography so you’ll need to be creative.

There is a long bay with an amazing sandy beach in Orewa, a small beach town just north of Auckland. The waves are small but the surfers get out after work and surf until the sun is gone. This evening we were presented with one of the most vivid sunsets of our trip, right outside our camp.

We’ve moved into the southern hemisphere with a few images coming from New Zealand. This is a Maori rock carving on Lake Taupo accessible only by watercraft. It is relatively new, carved in the 1970s by master carver Matahi Whakataka-Brightwell after finishing his 10-year training with Maori elders.
