The sight of flowers blossoming in Spring always makes me happy.
This image always come to mind; it was taken in Morges, Switzerland.
While tulips in Amsterdam are are abundant, I rather like these at Morges.
Clouds are my favorite subject of photography.
Here is a picture taken at Geneva, overlooking the lake with some extraordinary clouds at a relatively low altitude.
I have turned it into a black and white to make it look more moody.
The Castles of Bellinzona are a group of fortifications located around the town of Bellizona, the capital of the Swiss canton of Ticino. Situated on the Alpine foothills, the group is composed of fortified walls and three castles named Castelgrande, Montebello and Sasso Corbaro. Castelgrande is located on a rocky peak overlooking the valley, with a series of walls that protect the old city and connect to Montebello. Sasso Corbaro, the highest of the three castles, is located on an isolated rocky promontory south-east of the other two. The Castles of Bellinzona with their defensive walls have been an UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2000.
The walls seem quite well preserved.
I am glad that it has been awarded as a UNESCO site.
While I stayed at home as a caregiver to my mom, my wife and her dad are travelling in Switzerland and Italy. She is trying to accompany her 84 years old dad to as many places as possible before he couldn’t travel anymore.
A brief introduction of the church is given in Wikipedia:
Mogno is most noted for its modern marble and granite Church of San Giovanni Battista, designed by Ticinese architect Mario Botta. The church was erected between 1994 and 1996 on the site of its 350-year old predecessor, which was levelled by an avalanche in 1986. This catastrophe also claimed several of the homes in the village, although luckily no-one was injured in this event.
The original church of San Giovanni Battista Decollato was built in 1626 and was initially a chapel of ease of the parish of Peccia. Towards the end of the 17th Century it became an independent parish church. In 1940 it became part of the parish of Fusio
I like the angles and perspective of these photos taken by my wife. Please enjoy!
The DP’s theme for this week is Half and Half.
Photographers talk about the rule of thirds.
Taking pictures half / half is usually not recommended.
This picture was taken at Lake Geneva at Morges, Switzerland.
The sea and the lake are basically of the same color, highlighted by some clouds and yachts.
It was a view to behold.
Nature reveals many lines of symmetry; we see things around us which are symmetrical than asymmetrical.
Here is a cable-stayed bridge in Switzerland.
The two pairs of towers for anchoring the cables and also the cables themselves are symmetrical in their arrangement.
Please enjoy :-)
