This angle shows well how massive that hotel is. Clock tower makes a good main focal point, and give you excellent title. Reminds me of one bartender who keeps the clock a few minutes ahead of time so he can go home just a bit earlier.

Arrangement of each object is just perfect on this one. Leaves and branches give natural framing. Horses are diagonally to each other on different postures. And the reflection is in the middle of that pool. Charming!

I'm a bit surprised about the bad weather there. In Western Finland Friday was fine and Saturday just great. Here the view probably would have been pretty similar anyway, because people simply flee away from bigger cities in Midsummer (and drink somewhere else).

Effect of the light-painting is quite stunning. On the fingrprint it gave translucent impression. I should thy that some day. That gives good appreciation to ancient landmark.
Daylight saving time means that real midnight is around 1:30 over there. Next week I'm heading to real midnight sun region in northern Norway. I hope the sun actually shines there!

To me it is not a winter photo. Just some brown tones give a hint that it is not summer, but on the other hand brown lawn could also be due to heat and draught of summer too.
Beautiful view of old fortifications on a sunny day. That paved path gives nice perspective.

Lake Garda on the southern edge of the Alps is a region I really should visit some day. Nice to see the lake and steep mountain slopes ant the town that has been built on narrow strip along the shore. I wist there was brighter sunshine on the foreground as now the contrast to the bright sky is quite strong.

Views of truely original buildings just keep on coming!
Pity that the purpose just seems to be useless worship of a big leader. Nevertheless that 'eye' is carefully implemented. I guess this would be better without that lamppost.

Yes the riverside of Köln is a great place to spend a leisurely afternoon (while the city centre is less inviting). And these people are clearly enjoying shadows getting longer towards evening. Good framing, that church tower is quite impressive.
