The girl - the leading holiday. Kremlin in Izmailovo, in Moscow..The most important and indispensable part of everyday and festive Russian clothes are women's hats. The headdress spoke a lot about the woman he was wearing, he was the "talking" part of the national costume..A headdress could tell a man looking at women from which province she came, what her social status was, an exemplary wealth, but most importantly whether she was married or out of marriage. The headdress on the head of a married woman, especially after the Baptism of Russia, was considered a symbol of feminine nobility and purity, humility and humility in front of her husband and God.

The National Monument on Calton HIll, Edinburgh. Taken about 10:30pm.

During our land tour we took the 92 mile bus ride out of Denali. We were the fortunate few who actually got to see the entire range. Only a small percentage of people who visit actually get to see much of the range since it's typically shrouded in clouds. This particular shot was taken from the bus window on the way back from Denali. The driver was kind enough to stop and turn off the engine for us photographers.

 

On our way out, we were treated to a mother grizzly and her cub running along the road. After 45 minutes of the tour buses following them, they finally decided to run into the woods. Per the park regulations all wildlife is to be left alone so we were not able to go past them until they decided to leave the road. It extended our trip but was definitely worth it. Everyone on the bus was enthralled.

 

Per the Denali National Park website...Denali is six million acres of wild land, bisected by one ribbon of road. Travelers along it see the relatively low-elevation taiga forest give way to high alpine tundra and snowy mountains, culminating in North America's tallest peak, 20,310' Denali. Wild animals large and small roam unfenced lands, living as they have for ages. Solitude, tranquility and wilderness await.

Standing nearly 150' tall, this isolated ridge of yellowish white sandstone is home to a unique double arch. The larger arch is nearly 100' in diameter.

 

The formation is named for the first full-time editor of National Geographic Magazine and, later, president of the National Geographic Society, Gilbert Hovey Grosvenor (1875-1966).

 

Just south of Kodachrome Basin State Park, Grosvenor Arch is deservedly one of the most popular features in the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument.

 

While traveling through southern Utah to visit National Parks, this became of interest to us, because we previously lived near the Grosvenor-Strathmore Metro Station in Bethesda, Maryland.

Purnululu National Park is a national park in the north east of Western Australia. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

 

The national Park covers roughly 240,000 hectares (600,000 acres) and includes the Bungle Bungle, Ranges. These ranges are made from Devonian era sandstone and have been eroded over 20 million years into shapes like towers and cones. The sandstone has horizontal stripes of orange iron oxide and dark strips where bacteria are growing in damp layers of stone.

 

This is a striking landscape of amazing beauty. This shot is best viewed at full size. The map location is approximate as the map is almost useless as a facility to locate any landmark in this vast and empty part of Australia.

I was up early for a trip to the airport so decided to spend some time in Edinburgh getting some shots at a time when there was not a lot of people about.

Located minutes from the greater region of Lisbon, Sintra plays host to many fantastic homes and palaces. This National Palace was established in the 15th century, and now serves as an historic Portuguese monument that is visited by thousands of tourists every year. Its distinctive white conical kitchen chimneys make this palace instantly recognizable.

 

National Palace of Sintra is a designated UNESCO World Heritage site.

The National Theater opened for the first time in 1881 in honor of Archduke Rodolf's visit. It was inaugurated with the opera by Smetana Libuše, composed in 1872.

There was a fire in August 1881, which was seen as a national disaster. The architect Josef Zítek gave way to his student architect Josef Schulz, who was in charge of working on reconstruction. This historical building was reopened in November 1883.

Today you can see there Opera, Drama and Ballet performances.

The tram 22 is the most used to move around the center, because it is the one that passes through most monuments and places of interest in the Czech capital, including the Prague Castle or the Malá Strana neighborhood.
