传说中的蒙圣米歇尔 | Mont Saint-Michel


Mont Saint-Michel at night


 Picture taken from the hotel

Interesting stone wall decorated with green leaves of vines.


Morning dew drops on grass.

Yellow flowers on the roadside.

Grapes, plums or...?

 You can see sheep eating grass by the structure.



Low tide view in the morning.

The best time of day to visit is at 7-8 am in the morning before the tour buses arrived .

Here is the entrance..







The Gothic interior design was built to hold up the cloister.

The frieze tells the story of the archangel Michel touching the head of the bishop, burning a mark into his forehead.

Distinctive character of gothic stained-glass windows in the abbey

This is a real quicksand that surround the building..

库肯霍夫花園的秘密 | Keukenhof Gardens

     我是个不太会欣赏花的人,也不会刻意去某个地方看花,但是一踏进库肯霍夫花園的大门,就像坠入鬱金香的海洋,数百万朵七彩花卉缤纷绽放。我的心也跟着暖了,不知不觉地陶醉于花香四溢中。 ...

 
 



      The tulips garden is so amazing! Imaging that you are swimming in the endless ocean of tulips while enjoying the view of windmills against the blue sky.

阿拉斯加的天空 | Alaskan Sky

  

 2:28 PM:  消失的地平线-  眼看着灰色的云,
聚集纠缠在一起,慢慢掩盖了蔚蓝的地平线
知道雨就要来了。 

At 2:28 pm, the grey clouds slowly covers the entire horizon.











At 11:36 pm yet still very bright
