Switzerland In June 2011, we spent a week in Switzerland, flying into Geneva, with an initial stop in Montreux, followed by a picturesque stay in Wengen, located above the Lauterbrunnen valley. The alps provided a stunning backdrop to explore the area. During our stay in Wengen, a small village that is accessible by train or foot, the main sound heard was cow bells. We took day trips and hikes in the Interlaken area of central Switzerland. The village of Wengen where we stayed in an alpine chalet/hotel, above the Lauterbrunnen valley.

I am traveling with Austin Mann in Ethiopia working on the final prep for our Light The World workshop . We looked up to the sky to see the strangest thing i’ve probably ever seen.

Double chain of twenty-six atolls… The Republic of Maldives, or simply the Maldives, is an island nation in the Indian Ocean. It consists of approximately 1,190 coral islands grouped in a double chain of 26 atolls, along the north-south direction, spread over roughly 90,000 square kilometers, making this one of the most disparate countries in the world. The atolls are composed of live coral reefs and sand bars, situated atop a submarine ridge 960 kilometers long that rises abruptly from the depths of the Indian Ocean and runs from north to south. Crystal clear waters, beautiful white sand beaches, swaying palm trees and fabulous dive sites – that’s why the Maldives, is known for being one of the best tropical holiday destinations in the world.

August 12th, 2011 Huda Ikraam Leszek Bujnowski is wonderful creative photographer they live in poland and date of birth is 1977. When it comes to dark and foreboding photography, Leszek Bujnowski is a master of creating haunting images that defy his viewers to forget or ignore what they have seen. and since then has discovered a passion for photography. Testimony to Leszek Bujnowski’s skill is the fact that each of the pictures in this collection captures a spooky and malevolent ambiance that, while similar to its peers, is utterly all its own. The result is an unforgettable look into fear itself courtesy of one artist and his fantastic ability to manipulate both images and viewers alike.
