Copenhagen Canal Tour

It was a sunny but brisk day in Copenhagen. Perfect for a late afternoon canal tour.

Departed from Nyhavn, or new harbor. Now a trendy and tourist area, it used to be a bad section of town.

The Opera House, a gift to the country from Denmark’s richest man.

The National Theater

One of the kings liked Amsterdam so he built canals.

There are lots of low bridges.

You can climb the spire of Our Savior’s Church. Spot the tiny people.

Three entwined dragons top the Borsen, a 17th-century stock exchange. The dragons represent Denmark, Norway, and Sweden.

Back to Nyhavn.

Let There Be Water

Detail for one of two identical Baroque fountains in Rossio Square  (Pedro IV Square) in Lisbon, Portugal. I blinked and the water started to flow.

Sunset At Luxor

 Earth

 

Wind

 

Water

 

Fire

 

One afternoon in Luxor, I watched the sunset on the Nile from my stateroom balcony. The serenity of the Nile was amazing. When K’lee and Dale’s suggested the four elements (earth, air, water, fire) as the theme of this week’s challenge, it struck me that each element was captured in these scenes of feluccas catching the wind at the end of a day. The mountainous landscape in the background is the location of the Valley of Kings and the Valley of Queens. From earth to earth, they say.
