Hanging out of the window of a plane over Iceland looking at the wonderful volcanic land forms and pristine coastal environments. How incredible the colour of the water is in this barely touched land.

I am happy to share another fresh natural photo from my Czech homeland with you. I took this picture yesterday while biking around the Moravice River just outside of the Silesian town of Opava. There are many great bike lanes in the Czech Republic and you can enjoy some beautiful views of the surrounding landscape while riding around.


Johanneskirche in Stuttgart, Germany
The Johanneskirche in stuttgart is located on a small peninsula in a Lake called Feuersee.

The church, built from 1864 to 1876, was partially destroyed in the second world war. The church was then rebuilt down to the top of the tower, which means that it is now almost 20 meters smaller than it was then. The "church without a top" is now considered a memorial against war.



A stunning cloudy sky covers the ancient village of Mértola (Alentejo region, Southern Portugal)...
On the horizon, we can see the bridge over the Guadiana, the largest river in the South of the Iberian Peninsula!

Greece is a perfect destination for the history lover. Athens contains several interesting museums, but the ruins of the Parthenon is the most beautiful open-air museum in the city.


Lago means lake in Italian and Lago di Predil is a beautiful lake located near to Slovenian border, called in Slovenian language Rabeljsko jezero. It is convenient stop if you are going from Kranjska Gora to Posočje via Mangart. I am stopping there all the time and last weekend was no different.


Extraordinary panorama from the edge of Sokolí skála in the Jeseníky Mountains, Czechia. No one is there. Only trees, hidden chamois (as plenty of droppings there), and falcons. Praděd on the right.

Silence! As falcons may nest right there.

Image of the foothills of the charming island of Capri (Italy), it is a beautiful place to visit, walking through its thin winding alleys up the scattered mountain, but worth it to enjoy the splendid view of the blue sea and its imposing rocks in the horizon. It is also a very romantic place and they take care of you wonderfully.


Another sunset from Portugal, in southwestern Alentejo. This one was taken in a path to one of the many beautiful beaches in the region, between the sand and sparse mediterranean vegetation on top of the cliffs surrounding the sea. Sometimes the flare caused by the sun ruins the photo, but really liked the effect on this one!
