Breakfast with a view

It was only after a few days that we found this breakfast restaurant on top of a hotel. It was quite nice to enjoy the first meal of the day with a view like this. It felt like a good way to start the day.

Wired up hearts

I can’t understand why tourists like to do this sort of thing; buying a padlock shaped like a heart and attach it to a wire for good fortune or something of the sort. But it seems to be quite popular…

Morning mist

The sun had already risen above the horizon, but the mist from last night was still lingering in the valleys and between the trees. We were just about to head out for some breakfast, but I needed to take this panorama first.

Morning by the lake

A few hours after sunrise, but still before the bathers would arrive, I was alone on the beach. The lake looked so peaceful then, before the arriving chaos. Well, the 40 second exposure helped to smooth out the water a bit…

Morning sun & morning mist

It was early morning in the middle of July. The family was still sleeping in our cottage so I sneaked out with my camera for a morning photowalk. (One of my habits apparently.) I found this view in a currently unused sheep pasture. I liked how the sunbeams lit up the morning mist.
(The ground was still very wet from the night dew, so after another hour or so I had to head back home to dry my shoes in the sun.)

A ride with a view

I’m not really a big fan of heights. Despite this aversion, I went to the Langkawi SkyCab and stepped into a gondola that took me to the top. This photo is from our way down again. The view was breathtaking.

Cartoon flower

I have no idea what the name of this flower is. It’s quite nice though and grows on one of the bushes in our garden. I took this photo with my old iPhone 4 and edited it in Tangled FX to get this cartoon look.

No longer in use

One of the favorite places from our backpacking trip was Koh Lipe. The color of the water was just amazing. A short distance from the beach, these poles rose out of the water. I guess they might be part of an old jetty or something, but they don’t seem to be in use anymore…

The Moon

This was one of those nights, when the moon is full and bright. And also rather beautiful. I would like to have a lens with a bit more range, so that I would be able to study this ball a bit more closely.

Unfocused pattern

I have a soft spot for bokeh photos. I prefer them with many different and vibrant colors. In this case, however, I saw a nice pattern instead of nice colors.
