Pont Sant’Angelo is an old roman bridge in Rome, built in 134AD and spans the Tiber. The bridge is decorated with statues of angels depicting the instruments of the passion of Christ. These statues were commissioned in the mid 17th century.
And tomorow the sun will shine again
There is this standing stone in the Cashel Forest in Scotland with the words “and tomorrow the sun will shine again” referencing the songs by Richard Strauss and John Henry Mackay (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Morgen!?wprov=sfti1).

McWay Falls, Big Sur
I happened to be in California the last two weeks on work related business. Over the weekend my cousin drove me down the scenic pacific coast on the scenic Route 101 from San Francisco to the Big Sur and back. Sadly the day was overcast but we managed to take in some pretty sights along the way, including the famous McWay Falls in the Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park. Sadly in the absence of a wide-angle lens, I had to resort to taking overlapping photos with my 50mm and then stitching them in Adobe Lightroom.
Here is another close-up of the McWay Falls, this time in HDR.
Bible stories in Barcelona
Details of carvings on one of the gigantic doors on the passion facade of that Antoni Gaudi classic – La Sagrada Familia. The carvings portray different stories from the bible. This structure has been under construction since the 1880. More fantastic pictures from this basilica to follow soon!

Peace and Tranquility
A deserted beach on Mackinac Island, Michigan on the shores of Lake Huron.
Mackinac Bridge, MI
Something about bridges and sunsets – the contrast of human effort and natural beauty! The Mackinac Bridge connects the upper and lower peninsulas of Michigan across the Mackinac Straits that join two great lakes (Huron and Michigan). The Mackinac Bridge is over 8Km long with the longest span of over 1Km. The following photograph is as a result of a long exposure at sunset from a place on Mackinaw City.

Arch Rock, Mackniac Island, MI
There is this spectacular limestone arch on Mackinac Island in Michigan. I had a leisurely stroll around the island yesterday after hiring a bicycle. The 8 mile circumnavigation of the island offers lovely views of Lake Michigan (more photos from that later). For now, here’s a picture of Arch Rock.
