Multnomah Falls

Multnomah Falls

A second shot of Multnomah Falls looking down from the top.  I like this one mostly because it was an excuse to use the WiFi remote shot feature of the a6000 in combination with an Android phone in order to hold it out over the falls on the end of a tripod, frame the shot using the phone screen and then take the picture with the phone.  You can see the bridge a few hundred feet below in the upper right of the picture.

Salt Chandelier

Salt Chanedlier

A salt chandelier found in the Krakow salt mines in Poland (not the salt deposits on the ceiling).  This was one of the cooler authentic pieces, as opposed to some of the re-created scenes seen elsewhere.

Tower Bridge

Tower Bridge

The Tower Bridge in London.  I don’t recall if we took some form of boat tour down the Thames or if this was seen as part of the bus tour.  Either way, probably the coolest looking bridge in London (London Bridge is horribly boring).

Warsaw Barbican

Warsaw Barbican

gThe Warsaw Barbican.  I didn’t know what it was, or what the significance was at the time, but it was a cool thing to take a picture of in Poland.

barbican is a fortified outpost or gateway, such as an outer defense to a city or castle, or any tower situated over a gate or bridge which was used for defensive purposes.

Wellington Arch

Wellington Arch

This is Wellington Arch located in London outside Buckingham Palace and next to Hyde Park.  I’m not sure what the significance of all the arches and obelisks are, but they seem to be universally loved by the Europeans…

Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church

Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church

This is the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church which, moments ago, I didn’t know much about other than it was some old half bombed steeple in Berlin.  Kind of an interestingly preserved remnant of WW2.

Titlis Rotair

Titlis

The Titlis Rotair gondola heading up (or down, not sure) the mountain in Engelberg Switzerland.  I thin k it’s claim to fame is that, as the name hints, it rotates while traveling giving the occupants a 360 view of the landscape.  My claim to fame is that I rode it (many times) and then years later it showed up in a Warren Miller movie and I got to feel ahead of the curve.
