Les Maroon Bells (littéralement les « Cloches Bordeaux ») sont une montagne avec deux pics appelés Maroon Peak et North Maroon Peak, distants de quelque cinq-cents mètres. Elle se situe à 20 kilomètres au sud de la ville d'Aspen, dans les monts Elk, à la frontière entre les comtés de Pitkin et de Gunnison, dans l'ftat du Colorado, aux ftats-Unis. Les deux sommets font partie des fourteeners, ceux atteignant plus de 14 000 pieds, soit 4 267 mètres d'altitude. Le Maroon Peak, au sud, culmine à 4 315 mètres (27e plus haut du Colorado) et le North Maroon Peak à 3 048 mètres (50e plus haut du Colorado), soit respectivement 14 156 et 14 014 pieds.

This picture shows the famous Neuschwanstein Castle of King Ludwig II. Situated near Fussen (Bavaria, Germany) it attracts people from all over the world. You can tour not only the beautiful palace (from the inside as well as the outside) but also the incredible landscape including the Alps and the lake "Alpsee". That's why Neuschwanstein is an overall masterpiece that has to be seen in context of the surrounding nature.

Port Fontvieille at red sunset captured from "Le Rocher", Monaco. There is one week in October where Monaco turns red and deep orange during sunset. I had stunning cloud formations on that day which intensified the evening light behind La Turbie.
Qigu District (Traditional Chinese: 七股區) is a rural district of about 25,415 residents in Tainan, Taiwan. It was previously a salt producing area, but now most of the salt products are imported from other counties. The Qigu Lagoon is located in this township, and an ecological conservation area for Black-faced Spoonbills is situated on the estuary of the Zengwun River.
Taken in October, 2013 while road-tripping through Utah and Arizona. The 17-mile drive down the dirt road through the valley is a must-do if you ever visit here. We spent hours here just to watch the sunset. Incredible place.
On the drive to California I stopped near the border of Utah and Nevada to see the Bonneville Salt Flats, where Bonneville Speedway is located. Several land speed records have been set there, as it's a vast expanse of flat salt ideal for high speeds. I photographed the long road that takes you there.
