    Via Dinarica

    Via Dinarica – Introducing A Megatrail Through The Balkans So there is this trail, called the Via Dinarica, which is over 1000km long, winding all the way from Albania to Slovenia. It is aptly named for the Dinaric Alps, stretching in a long collection of limestone peaks across the eastern part of the continent. The Via Dinarica trail exists naturally, but the goal is to make it accessible in a way, that you don’t have to be a pro-mountaineer to attempt the trip.

On the city side of the trail (the other side only offers views of nothing but lush backcountry forests), there are plenty of great viewpoints from where you can photograph the skyline…

    Photographing Reflections

    Quick Tip: Photographing Reflections I love landscape photography and when there’s water around, I always try to incorporate the reflections if possible. Photographing reflections add an interesting compositional element to the photo and can give it more depth. Seriously, I love it, and here’s how you too can capture those amazing reflections! Photographing Reflections in Water It’s possible to photograph reflections in a whole lot of shiny surfaces, from metal and glass to tiny droplets of morning dew and the vast expanse of the ocean.

    Vienna’s Many Castles

    Palace Chaos – Navigating Vienna’s Many Castles Vienna’s Many Castles. Vienna is full of them. Small ones, big ones, summer palaces, winter palaces, minor castles and the important residences of Habsburg rulers are long gone.
