Winter fun

Standard

I love it how winter weather can bring so many people together wanting to do exactly the same thing, have fun with snow and ice!

Desert Beauty

Standard

I’m back from a long vacation, so it’s time for blogging again! Since I spent some time in different deserts this past summer, and because I just love these types of landscapes so much (the emptiness, the colors of the sand, the heat), I thought I’d do a post about these beautiful areas. Enjoy!

Storms – fierce but beautiful

Standard

Major storms scare me, intrigue me and make me feel humble. Not fun to get caught in, but from a safe distance the stormy sky can also look hauntingly beautiful.
