    The Deepest Lake in Lithuania

    Welcome to Lithuania, the country sometimes called "the land of the lakes"... And if you're interested in lakes, let's go to the one, that is named the deepest lake of Lithuania, Tauragnas. The little village near it is called after the name of the lake, Tauragnai (different ending only). The lake is 60,5 m deep and what is more, this lake also has the highest "up the sea level" of all the lakes in Lithuania (165 m).

  • Lake Malawi

    written by deodatus on 2008-04-27 in #world #locations
    Lake Malawi

    Malawi is one of the least known places in Africa. It lies between Zambia, Mozambique and Kenia and was formerly attached to North Rodesia. The people there speak English, one of the poorest countries of the world, but everything there works with a smile. Their main economy- products are wood and fish. A lot of fish, because one third of the country is covered by water. That's lake Malawi! One boat, the Ilala, goes weekly from north to south, filled with people, maïs, goats, fish... and very eventually some lost tourists.

    Bear Creek Park

    I am lucky enough to live right across the street from Bear Creek Park. When I was little, my parents and I used to take the bike path from Central Point and go there, but the path goes all the way to Ashland if you’re up for an extended ride!

    Berlin Bowl

    This is a super fun bowling alley on the Berlin turnpike, which was one of the original highways before we had real highways in America in the '50s. Anyways there are all manner of good popular bowling alleys down the street but this one is out of the way and no one really goes there.

    The Beautiful Sunny Island of Aruba

    Bonbini! Welcome as they say in Aruba. I love this island. It’s a great place for a vacation from the major city life. The beaches are crystal clear and the locals are amazing. We went in December, which is in the off-season, and I would definitely recommend that! The island is not that busy and there aren’t many tourists around so you’ll actually get a feel for how the island really is.

    Shah Alam Skatepark

    It’s not easy to find a nice, well- designed concrete skate park in Malaysia. Shah Alam is the place where almost all skaters gather to satisfy their thirst for skating. Under the hot sun, this skate park could be the best skate park ever built in Malaysia today, the design and the pattern of the park gives the skaters a feel like they are skating in a Western country.

    Parc de la Ciutadella

    The "Parc de la Ciutadella" in Barcelona is cool, green and quiet place in the centre of the city and not so far away from the beach. It's located near to the "Estacio de França" (see other location) and there are plenty of things to make there. You can visit a zoo, make a little boat tour on a little lake, visit the geological and zoological museum and admire the great building of the Parliament of Catalunya in the centre of the park. A very "family friendly" park with a lot of things to do for the kids, great green space to make picnics, play, sunbathe and sleep away from the noises of the city. The place was constructed as a park when used for the 1888 Universal Exhibition in Barcelona. You can spend a whole day in this park by visiting the 2 museums, have a little rest and time for taking pictures, and after that make a little visit to the zoo! :) Have a nice day!

    Sentosa Beach

    You know these moments, where you are totally at ease and in your mind there won´t be any other place you would like to be but the very one you are at? I love those moments and I had it once with Sentosa in Singapore. It is an artificial Beach-Area a bus ride from the City, which formerly was a military base. But the impression is perfect and we just heard afterwards, that what we experienced is absolutely made by man.

    Roller Disco (Kuala Lumpur)

    Wang Roller World challenges your recreational rollerblading skills. Our friends were so excited, they can't wait a second to get into the rink. Rolling one-by-one, going hand-by-hand, holding waists forming a "Train" or "Snake". The boys did their train, and so did the girls...

    Endless Langkawi

    Westin Langkawi Resort Spa - I saw this long jetty many times since the project was going on last year, but haven't got the right time to go there. Well, this time I've made myself another favorite album from there. By applying the green filter, I find it useful for strong sun ray reduction and it makes my pictures more clearer. It's not difficult to get to the location and you it's absolutely free to enter to that jetty, it's beside the Westin Resort hotel.

    Barigui Park

    Every city has its own attractions. One of the most visited spots of Curitiba is the Barigui Park. It's a huuuuuuuuge park inside the city with an artificial lake, museums, amusement park, restaurants, aeromodelism, bike trail, sports field, trekking, barbecue spots, gym, exposition center, and many other things to see. During the summer time or weekends, the park is crowded with kids and dogs, families, couples and tourists having fun in their favorite spots. You can get there by car, bike, bus or even helicopter! You'll have so many things to shoot that you can't decide where to start! My favorite spot is next to the lake, where people bring their kites to fly across the sky. It's a beautiful show and you can't miss it!

    After all this divine inactivity we felt that at least one day should be spent on something strenuous, to appease the conscience more than anything. So, we booked a day trip to St. Katherine's monastery and Mt. Sinai.

    Bullerdeich In Hammerbrook

    The area I live in is basically not inhabited. Hammerbrook in Hamburg is an industrial- and business-territory. But there are lofts and there am I. I live in an Artists House where people live in lofts and start projects together, but this very spot will be explained in a few weeks. The main objective is the Bullerdeich: It is one fantastic secret wild park close to my flat.

    Santa Terezinha Square

    Santa Terezinha Square is a wonderful place in Taubate City. It's a good spot to have a nice time with your family and friends on weekends. With a beautiful garden, it is the perfect place to meet other people, see folk music shows, eat some of the delicious local food, like "pastel" (fried rissole) and sugar cane juice. There you can see the Santa Terezinha Church too, with the famous stained glass windows, with all Jesus history and gorgeous neo-gothic architecture (perfect Lomo subject). The Square once was the Taubaté's downtown area. It was a long time ago. Now it is a place to exercise your faith, playing with your kids or just walk in a beautiful garden.

    My Favorite Patch of Greenery: Gunung Lang, Ipoh

    My husband and I took a break during the weekend and paid a visit to Gunung Lang equipped with a Lomo LC-Wide and a BeLOMO Elikon 535. Once in, we were greeted with a magnificent lake enclosed by majestic limestone outcrops surmounted by lush greenery. Across the lake lies a landscaped park that is only accessible by boat. Fortunately, a jetty provides ferry services through water taxis for visitors like us to reach the park.

    Santa Cruz Island (Channel Islands, Ca)

    Located off the coast of California, Santa Cruz Island is an incredible Lomolocation with cliffs, coasts, caves and coves to explore! Camping overnight guarantees an island fox sighting, and chances are you'll see (or at least hear) seals at one point or another.

Whether you are a skydiver, a hobby pilot or just interested in watching or doing a tandem jump - you'll certainly be pleased with what you find there.

    Cruise Ship

    The views from a cruise ship are just amazing, so why not capture it with a Fisheye? The ship is enormous, so to capture that, I took pictures of the "tail" or the red exhaust pipes from the top deck. The red glass is actually the ceiling of the atrium below, so don't forget to take a shot from inside the ship looking out (that's the shot that looks like I used a red filter but it's actually the sun shinning through the red glass that made this effect.)

    Aran Islands

    A fortune teller in India read my hand recently and told me that I am loving nature. I thought this is quite rhetorical, because I don't know anyone, who doesn't love nature?!? And I am not very fond of going out into the nature, but there are a few places that just impress you to the bone. One of those places are the Aran Islands west of the grand mother island Ireland. It is one of the remains of Gaelic culture and the Celts.

    Keflavik

    It was still light outside when I landed at 11.40 pm and I was almost too tired to enjoy the beautiful descent with Reykjavik lit up beneath me. Excitement finally caught up with me as I stepped onto Icelandic soil. This country is absolutely captivating...its beauty far too infinite and overwhelming to describe...words will not do. For the past 2 days we have driven all over the south-west on crazy off-road trails and through rivers and seen beauty too vast to contain. Moonscapes, geysers, waterfalls, lava, hot-springs, volcanoes...mystical & unspoild...laid out in front of you. "Lord of the rings" everywhere.
