I love water. Living in Switzerland, my main complaint was the lack of sea, so I went to live by Lake Léman, one of the largest in Europe. And no, there is no such thing as Lake Geneva, except for tourism purposes! Here in Germany we live far away from the coast, but there are enough rivers and lakes to keep me happy.
When I was living in the UK, I was a big fan of going to Wales and enjoying long walks on the beach. I have been lucky enough to discover some magnificent spots in the Maldives or in Australia, or closer to home in France, Spain or Italy. I have hundreds of suitable photos for this week’s Gallery theme but I wanted something different. It came to me without effort.
I went running in the castle gardens yesterday morning. The light was very dramatic, a mix of sun and very dark clouds. I was also surprised to see that the trees were starting to shed their leaves already. I had my iPhone with me as I use it for music while exercising. As I was criss-crossing this huge space, I kept coming across beautiful sights, many of them featuring… water! In the end it was more of a “stop and go” run, but it was absolutely worth it as I went home very pleased with my photos.
