Zurich at Night

The view of Zurich from our hotel was just as spectacular at night as it was during the day (only just a bit trickier to capture).

Tel Aviv Beach Promenade at Sunset

I’m back from being in Israel for 2 weeks and am still battling jet lag although I do feel the fog starting to dissipate from my brain. There are so many wonderful places to see in Israel but I have to say that my favourite is Tel Aviv.

Tel Aviv is a vibrant and diverse city, a city where old and new alternate at every street corner. It has a vibrant nightlife, trendy neighbourhoods that feature world-class restaurants; galleries and designer boutiques but where I come alive is along the Tayelet or beach promenade.

Here’s a section of the promenade at sunset taken from the Dan Tel Aviv hotel looking south towards Old Jaffa.

The Eiffel Tower

The Eiffel Tower or La Tour Eiffel was erected in 1889 and is a most impressive structure any time you look at it but at night it’s a sparkling jewel on the left bank.

La Bicyclette

You didn’t think that I would be travelling and not come back with at least one bicycle image did you? If you’ve been following this blog for a while you know I love taking pictures of bicycles in unique settings. You can find one from Rome here and another from New Orleans here. I have a few other California bicycle pictures that I’ll share but imagine my surprise when I cam across this restaurant in Carmel called La Bicyclette.  It couldn’t get any more perfect then that.

Have a great long weekend everyone!

Night Time at the Monterey Bay Marina

The Monterey Bay Marina and Fisherman’s Wharf was literally in the backyard of the hotel we were staying at. One night I grabbed the tripod and camera gear and headed out for the trek (ok not such a trek…more like a 5 minute walk) to take pictures of the marina at night.
