Weekly photo challenge: Grid

This grid might not be the main focus of the photo, but is just as much part of it as the background. It’s on the cemetery of St Peter, where you can find gorgeous graves in a small, lush space, enclosed by the mountain and the church.

Travel theme: outdoors

I spent quite a bit of time outdoors in the last two weeks. There have only been a couple of days that I haven’t been out and about, exploring forests, mountains or coastal areas.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Juxtaposition

After spending a few days in the Karijini national park in Western Australia, we were taking the main road south. It was getting late already so we decided to camp on a site next to the road. It was called ‘rest in peace lookout’. It turned out to be a place where people placed stones…
