For this photo challenge, I was at a lost as to what pictures I should include. Do I pick a gallery of pictures which I have shown in 2012 or should I show pictures which were not included in my posts of last year? There are some pictures, although interesting, did not fit the title of my posts while others relate to journeys which are still not published because of time constraints. Among the latter category, I have still not published my pictures which were taken in Inner Mongolia, various parts of Beijing and also Datong of China.
After some deliberation, I finally decided to go for the latter category, that is, to post photos taken in 2012 which have not yet shown previously. Please enjoy.
Annecy, France was very picturesque, I don’t think I have showcased enough photos of the medieval town to do it justice.
I was sort of entranced by the Adriatic sea and boats in the harbor. I especially love the boats in Split, Croatia.
The picturesque and charming town Szentendre with its yellow colored buildings along the Budapest section of the Danube.
Budapest was interesting, not only in the scenery. I also like the market which is colorful, selling things which we don’t have locally.
I love the serenity of Geneva, Switzerland and its green view which gives me some peace of mind.
I was awed by the sight of the colossal buddha statues in the Datong grotto.
The trip to the “Resonant Desert” in Inner Mongolia was interesting but, as yet, I have not written up any post for it.
Of course, not to be forgotten was my trip to the Mutianyu section of the Great Wall of China with the Autumn foliage providing a colorful background to the already stunning ancient wall.
Hope this is a good start for 2013 and a sincere wish to everyone for a happy, healthy and progressive new year !
