The centre of Porto is a fabulous place for a photographer to be. In comparison with other cities in Portugal, whereby architecture is marked by baroque, the architecture of Porto is rather monumental and dominated by granite constructions.
Can you imagine waking up every morning and enjoying this view? The stay in Berjaya Langkawi Resort passed by very quickly. Almost every year that we make our return home, we are reminded of our stay and we miss it dearly. But – we never really know, it may be that one day we take this route again and enjoy this destination.
The entire stay in Berjaya Resort in Langkawi, Malaysia was truly another experience for us. This is a photo of… a bathroom in one of the premiere chalets on the water in Berjaya Resort. I already showed you a balcony from which you also see this jacuzzi, overlooking the surrounding clean and turquoise seawater. Surprise, surprise – we didn’t leave our residence very often…
Picturing this scene for a moment, I formed an interesting concept – I believe that the closer we are to the equator, the more the surrounding colours of nature become evident. The Berjaya Resort was exceptional – in the middle of a jungle and still on the coast, it offered many diverse ways of “living”. On a particular occasion, after dinner at a restaurant, I took my camera out to eternalize this experience of arriving home “on the water” and as you see, it was truly mesmerising.
Büyük Han – “Great In” is the oldest hotel that I have ever seen. It was built in 1572 as Caravanserai – a place where travellers in Cyprus could sleep overnight after their journey – usually in connection with the commerce trade. In our modern day, Büyük Han is currently located in the northern part of Cyprus and is the main attraction for tourists, however, this area no longer serves as a hotel.
The best view of the Singapore Bay is not from the famous Marina Bay Hotel as some would guess, but from the skyscrapers surrounding the bay itself. To have the perfect portrayal of this area, you will need to examine the Marina Bay Hotel and its unique architecture from the right perspective. The skyscraper where we stayed displayed a beautiful landscape on the last floor, which was a perfect spot to capture the bay.
There are 99 Islands that have created a region called “Langkawi”. It’s one of the biggest tourist destinations in Malaysia, though it is still undiscovered in comparison to Phuket, the capital of Thailand which is nearby. The “Langkawi Island Resort” was located partly on the coast and partly in the rainforest. We could in effect, leave our balcony on the turquoise water, close the door to our house and still be in the middle of the jungle with all its wild-life!
During our stay in the heavenly Berjaya Langkawi Resort on the Malaysian Island Langkawi, I decided to give the impressive art of astrophotography a go and it seems I couldn’t have picked a more beautiful night for my first try. When looking at the image afterwards, I was especially surprised and fascinated by the illuminated purple firmament, which gave a certain magical feel to starry night sky.
