Monochrome Madness 3-29

mm29-dsc_5289-sc_wt

It’s time for Monochrome Madness. This week we have another themed Monochrome Madness. The theme is “travel”.

There are so many options to visualise travel:  think of i.e. luggage, people in a railway station, at a harbour or an airport, different travel vehicles or travel destinations and so on. I guess, you got the idea.

Despite I have many images from my different trips fitting for each of the above categories, I picked an image taken during one of my flights with a hot-air balloon. A fantastic experience gliding softly over the landscape.

This is my contribution to Monochrome Madness organized by Leanne Cole. Look at here site on Thursday (Australian time), to see many more monochrome images created by many other talented photographers.

Take care!

W.I.M – Warstein International Montgolfiade

Last weekend I was in Warstein, a quite small city in Northrheine-Westphalia. It’s located in a region calles Sauerland, an agricultural region with many offers for vacations. Many lakes, hills and hiking trails are attracting the visitors.

A local brewery is the main sponsor for this event, held for the 22nd time. So, no wonder, many balloons had the brewery’s logo on it.

I was there with 5 friends for taking photographs and it was worth the effort. We arrived Continue reading “W.I.M – Warstein International Montgolfiade”
