Beyond Hadrian’s Wall

Beyond a mighty wall built by the Roman emperor Hadrian used to be a country called Caledonia with brave inhabitants, wo liked to color their faces and didn’t fancy their southern neighbours very much. In the end nothing changed in a dramatic way and the country is called Scotland today. The blue face paint became the colour of the flag and you still don’t want to argue with a Scotsman.

A Day in Sóller

The town of Sóller is situated on the Spanish island of Mallorca. It is just a trip with the heritage train away from the main town of the island called Palma. Sunny Sóller is known for rich plantations of oranges and lemons. The trees and fruits can be seen from everywhere. It is also a nice place to relax and look around. The port area is especially nice and peaceful. There is also some interesting art nouveau architecture (modernismo in Spanish) to be found, a prime example being the front facade of the cathedral (picture 4). All in all a pleasant place to spend a few hours in.

Scotland in 2014

Since 2014 I had the chance to visit Scotland many times. Recently I had the chance to review the photography I shot there in 2014 and realised I had published just a few shots from this particular year, but there were interesting pictures left which I hadn’t uploaded yet. So before I post more recent photographies from Scotland from 2018 I wanted to go back in time and post more of these first formative impressions of Scotland. They are the reason I felt so much in love with this country.
