Switzerland, part I

Switzerland or "The Garden of Eden" means fresh air, lakes that reflect the clear blue skies, beautiful green valley, spectacular landscapes, clean towns, places and people, respect for the nature, great Alpes with the peaks touching the sky, reach forests, means chocolates, cheese, watches, sun, rain, wind, good roads and much more. Definitely, a place to live!

Swiss Alps II

The second series from the Swiss Alps, comes with a few lanscape of Interlaken, Grimselpass, and from "Canton du Valais". The last two are done in Täsch, where we spent the night. As you can see, I caught a night with clear sky, which allowed me to do a short time laps. Unfortunately I had no tripod, but I used the car's hood for this! Is not so bad, isn´t it? :)

Swiss Alps


After many years, my little Polo took me again on the realms of dream, exactly where I like ... higher, on the real mountains, pure, full of oxygen and that make you think about them for a long time from now. The feeling you have to almost 4000 m is breath-taking but at the same time you don't want to go down. I got up in the morning and not too, enough to catch a bit of blue sky, but of course I was not so lucky to catch up a panorama of Mont Blanc and ahead. You have to be there early morning, if not, the mountain leaves you with the head in the clouds. Anyway, it's worth to be only for a few moments and face to face with the Matterhorn, Dent Blanche, Breithorn, Castor and Pollus, and other high peaks of the Alps. Below are some photos of those places. I'll come back with another series soon. For those who have asked, yes I used BW filter...

Magura, part III


Multumita unor oameni cu suflet mare si care stiu ca nu vor falimenta daca dau de la ei cate ceva pentru semenii lor, am reusit sa merg din nou la Magura la prietenii mei mai mici. Din pacate nu i-am intalnit pe toti, iar situatia lor e in mare parte aceeasi. Nu ma astept sa le rezolv eu problemele si cu atat mai putin sa le solutionez viata, dar mi-e de-ajuns sa stiu ca pentru cateva clipe se bucura si ei de ceea ce pentru noi e banal...sa mananci o ciocolata, o banana sau in cazul multor copii, sa se joace cu o jucarie. Unde mai pui ca altii  fac nazuri ca nu au tableta sau I-phone. Numai ca asta e alta mancare de peste si nici nu ma prea intereseaza cum isi creste fiecare copilul. 

De data asta am prins vreme buna si am urcat bine, fara probleme, si, dupa ce ne-am cazat la  Vila ELI  intr-una dintre cele mai frumoase zone ale Romaniei, acasa la niste gazde nota 10 la care cu siguranta vom reveni si unde am mancat cel mai bun bulz, am plecat acasa la copii. Nu am de gand sa descriu amestecul de sentimente si trairi de cate ori ajung acolo, raman de data asta cu zambetul si bucuria lu' ala mic si cu topaiturile lui cand vedea iepurasul tras cu cheie care topaia la randul lui si cu felul in care a ramas hipnotizata fetita la vederea puzzle-urilor. Bineinteles, cate ceva de-ale gurii, hainute si una alta si pentru bunica.

Voi reveni cu siguranta ori de cate ori pot si ori de cate ori cineva vrea sa ajute, pentru ca bineinteles, statul e prea ocupat cu furtisagurile in stanga si in dreapta, ca sa mai aiba timp sa trimita asistenti sociali la familia nimanui in muntele de dupa vale.

Multumesc celor care s-au implicat pana acum si celor care o vor face sau o vor mai face, stiu ei care sunt!
