Elbrus.Within one hour Earth spin 1/24 of the Star Dome, and fixed camera captures trails of stars and Moon rising above horizon. It was a night after long day of snowboard shooting in snow park.

The most exciting things to do in Dahab to hire a boat for a day trip to any of dive sites or marine reserves, for example Gabr El Bint on the south. Beside jumping from the boat and sun-bathing you may enjoy of snorkeling or freediving and diving ) This is the VR spherical panorama of friend of mine Nastya Vecherko practicing in freediving and reaching 5 meters depth. The panorama was shot from hands in a hard light conditions under water, so the stitching was a challenge for me )

This VR panoramic sequence is the technic which I would like to represent myself as an athlete and photo-artist at once. The sequence was shot with help of my friend Vitaliy Bekker. The simple bs360 trick was done by me with not-simple double tail grab in the spring photo session for WarmupTV.ru (the first russian online video mag about snowboarding) and Red Bull. After a good landing I climbed back to the kicker and asked my friend to make one more shot for the 360×180 panorama, which I stitched later on.

The Hill of Crosses, Kryzių Kalnas, located 12 kilometers north of the small industrial city of Siauliai (pronounced shoo-lay) is the Lithuanian national pilgrimage center. Standing upon a small hill are many hundreds of thousands of crosses that represent Christian devotion and a memorial to Lithuanian national identity. The size and variety of crosses is as amazing as their number. Beautifully carved out of wood or sculpted from metal, the crosses range from three meters tall to the countless tiny examples hanging profusely upon the larger crosses. An hour spent upon the sacred hill will reveal crosses brought by Christian pilgrims from all around the world. Rosaries, pictures of Jesus and the saints, and photographs of Lithuanian patriots also decorate the larger crosses. On windy days breezes blowing through the forest of crosses and hanging rosaries produces a uniquely beautiful music.

The Church of Saint-Séverin is a church in the Latin Quarter of Paris, located on the lively tourist street Rue Saint-Séverin. It is one of the oldest churches that remains standing on the Left Bank, and it continues in use as a place of worship. The church is dedicated to Séverin, who is said to have been a hermit who lived there and prayed in a small rudimentary oratory. After Séverin’s death, a basilica was constructed on the spot. This was destroyed by the Vikings, and the current church building was started in the 11th century, though its major features are late Gothic and date from the 15th century. Its external features include some fine gargoyles. Its bells include the oldest one remaining in Paris, cast in 1412; their ringing is recalled in a well known poem in praise of Paris by Alan Seeger. Internal features of the church include both ancient stained glass and a set of seven modern windows by Jean René Bazaine, inspired by the seven sacraments of the Catholic church, around the ambulatory. The ambulatory also includes an unusual pillar in the form of the trunks of a palm tree, that brings to mind the Apprentice Pillar at Rosslyn Chapel. The construction of the marble choir was made possible by donations from Anne, Duchess of Montpensier, a cousin of Louis XIV. The organ is signed Jean Ferrand. …from Wikipedia

Khao San Road takes off at night: neon signs flicker into life, music begins blasting from streetside sound systems, while the masses begin mapping out the long, alcohol-soaked night in front of them. And there’s no shortage of choices. From the (relatively) upscale Silk Bar and Cinnamon, to the quiet tranquility of the back-alley Hippie de Bar, or the crude charms of a kerb-side cocktail shack complete with plastic stools and ghetto blaster, there’s something to suit every mood, taste, budget and state of cleanliness. Some of the truly thrifty even opt to purchase beers from the local 7/11 and drink on the street, hobo style.  More

Lebanon is a land of water, this is also why the country position is geopolitically so complex. As it is also a land of loss, the country is loosing milliards of cubic meter of water every year. The ministry of energy & water has a plan to build 27 water barrier over the country; so far this is the first one in the project.

Ilosaarirock in Brief This year (2010) is the 40th consecutive year of the Ilosaarirock Festival. The first festival, called Rock Rieha (Rock Rave), took place in 1971 on the Ilosaari island (which literally translates as Fun island) in the Pielisjoki River that runs through the heart of Joensuu. This is how the festival got its name. Rokki, as the event is informally known, has grown to be one of the main events of the Finnish rock festival calendar. The 21 000 tickets on sale have been sold out in advance every year during the past decade. There is a total of five stages at the festival, in addition to the club events, held on Friday at the actual festival site. During its entire history, the festival has presented bands and artists from both Finland and abroad and represented a multitude of popular music genres. Ilosaarirock is highly regarded by the national live music industry with many of the Finnish major promoters, manager agents, and concert venue owners dropping in at some point over the weekend.

The Paris Pantheon (from Greek, it means “Every god”) is a building in the Latin Quarter of Paris. The inscription above the entrance reads AUX GRANDS HOMMES LA PATRIE RECONNAISSANTE. This is because during the early stages of the French Revolution, the National Constituent Assembly decided to convert the old church Abbey of St. Genevieve, already remodeled in 1790, it into a secular mausoleum for prominent Frenchmen. An early example of neoclassicism, with a façade modeled on the Pantheon in Rome, surmounted by a dome that owes some of its character to Bramante’s “Tempietto”, the Pantheon looks out over all of Paris. Among those buried in its necropolis are Voltaire, Rousseau, Victor Hugo, Émile Zola, Jean Moulin, Marie Skłodowska-Curie, Louis Braille, Jean Jaurès and Soufflot, the architects of the Pantheon. …more on wikipedia

I was walking around Paris looking for a shot. I thought the red scooter would make a good forground image, then the bride wafted in on the breeze. I have no idea where the groom went.
