327th Show & Tell Competition: That Special Getaway Spot

Post Thu Jul 17, 2014 12:08 am


Where is your special getaway spot?

For me, it's Big Bend National Park. Whenever we get an extra few days with no other obligations, we pack up the tent and disappear into the Chihuahuan Desert...Beauty, solitude and thousands of photographic opportunities. Here are a few:

Where are your favorite places?

My favorite place for a vacation trip are the cosy small lakes in Bavaria, like the Geroldsee near Garmisch-Partenkirchen. A perfect quiet and often very lonely hideaway, surrounded by the majestic alps:


And the picturesque little bavarian villages with the beautiful painted houses, like MIttenwald:


In winter I stay at my hometown and like to rest for a while at this beautiful place overlooking the old town:

For me the greatest place is the Sierra Nevada southeast of Yosemite National Park. Here's some black and white.

If you live in a big country, with a small population, it is easier to find a "Get away spot". Problem becomes which to chose.
