Mooragh Park was not always a park for it was built, but then its lake was not always a lake. In 1881, the Ramsey Town Commissioners bought a 200 acre tidal swamp. The Land was purchased for 1,200 pounds with the intent to build the site into a pleasure park. Six years later the site was opened to the public and included many of the sites it does today. The park and lake proved to be a great success for Ramsey, bringing visitors and tourists alike. Events were held there as they still are now and Mooragh remains a popular public gathering place for the island. And what a bonus it is right on my doorstep !

It was a very clear winter day and my target was to take some pictures at a nearby lake. But on my way I figured out that the Philipsburg nuclear power plant might be more interesting...

The courts at the Main Beach in Laguna Beach, California, are ranked the second most likely to host a pickup game featuring NBA players. These guys were no pros, but the setting sun made them look good, too.

Una de las cosas que mas me llamaron la atención de Viena, fue el estilo griego clásico del Parlamento de Austria.

Delante del edificio, se encuentra la estatua de la diosa de la sabiduría de la mitología griega: Pallas Atenea.

This picture is part of a little light painting series I took with my E-M5 after the Olympus OM-D E-M1 event in Stuttgart on October 3rd.

It has been taken in a single shot. I only added some FHDR processing afterwards.

"Named after its designer, engineer Gustave Eiffel, the Eiffel Tower is the tallest building in Paris.[1] More than 200,000,000 people have visited the tower since its construction in 1889,[2] including 6,719,200 in 2006,[3] making it the most visited paid monument in the world.[4][5] Including the 24 m (79 ft) antenna, the structure is 324 m (1,063 ft) high (since 2000), which is equivalent to about 81 levels in a conventional building.

 

When the tower was completed in 1889 it was the world's tallest tower — a title it retained until 1930 when New York City's Chrysler Building (319 m — 1,047 ft tall) was completed.[6] The tower is now the fifth-tallest structure in France and the tallest structure in Paris, with the second-tallest being the Tour Montparnasse (210 m — 689 ft), although that will soon be surpassed by Tour AXA (225.11 m — 738.36 ft)."

The interesting thing about this shot is neither the sunset nor the bottle - it's the location! I really did not expect that they sell Munich's original Paulaner Hefe-Weißbier in the middle of far-off Lake Onega!

This picture also has been taken at the wedding of our friends about a month ago. I'm curious about their reaction. Think, they didn't realize what we did outside while they were dancing.

 

There has been some minor FHDR processing to the original picture that came out of the camera. Nothing else has been changed or added.

Song of Freedom 2011 is Estonia’s gratitude to the countries that recognised Estonia re-gaining its independence 20 years ago.

Nellie the Elephant packed her trunk

And trundled back to the jungle

Off she went with a trumpety-trump

Trump, trump, trump

The Alexander Nevsky Cathedral is an orthodox cathedral in the Tallinn Old Town, Estonia.

The Cathedral crowns the hill of Toompea and was built during the period of late 19th century Russification and was so disliked by many Estonians as a symbol of oppression that the Estonian authorities scheduled the cathedral for demolition in 1924, but the decision was never implemented due to lack of funds and the building's massive construction. As the USSR was officially non-religious, many churches including this cathedral were left to decline. The church has been meticulously restored since Estonia regained independence from the Soviet Union in 1991.
