After a long day of work, I drove home using back roads because of a traffic jam. Rather stressed and on autopilot completing my daily routine, I noticed the colors in the sky. They were in fact so varied and bright, I stopped the car to take a snapshot. I have posted quite a few sunsets, so you may know by now that I really enjoy them. It’s like nature painting on the sky. It is neat how the colors change so quickly. The colors in the sky on this night were simply amazing.
Water always has a relaxing feeling to it. Whether on the beach, by a lake, or just taking a shower, water relaxes me. Sunsets are simply beautiful too, and my favorite time of day. This picture was taken in Søro, Denmark. It is a small town, with a renouned academy and a beautiful lake. The summer evening walk around the lake was a great way to relax after a day of playing tourist and driving.
Hopfen am See is another resort town in the Allgäu region of the Bavarian Alps. The first few times I visited, I stayed at a bed and breakfast run by an elderly couple. I have always found it fascinating to talk to older people, I always felt I could learn a lot. It is like having a living documentary or history book. In this case, I heard stories about being expelled from the Sudetenland in World War II. Hearing personal war stories really gives you insight on the personal impact of the war and makes me thankful that I have not been directly affected by war.
