Riga Photos in Skylife Magazine

Anyone travelling on Turkish Airlines this month will see a few my photos from Riga printed in Skylife Magazine, the airline’s inflight magazine. And for those of us not fortunate to be travelling anywhere with them right now, there’s also the option of viewing the Riga notes article online.

And if you’re craving more images from that part of the world, hop on over to my gallery of photos from the Baltics or go even more in depth and check out the images from Riga in my archive.

As a bonus, here’s a shot of the House of Blackheads in Old Riga.

Gallery of India Photos Posted

With this post, I would like to present you with a brand new gallery of photos, this time from India. Most of them come from Rajasthan whose oversized hill forts tower over bustling cities that overwhelm the senses. A few, like the one below, come from just outside the province, in or near Agra.

Below is, of course, the Taj Mahal as viewed at sundown from across the Yamuna river.

Second Gallery of Scotland Photos

My photos of Scotland are some of my most popular, so I saw that as an opportunity to visit that magical land again (and again) to get more photos to share with you. Here’s my second instalment of photos from Scotland.

And as a bonus, my original Scotland gallery has also received a few new additions. Enjoy!

Crovie, Scotland

Photo of the Day

The tiny village of Crovie was one of my favourite spots on my most recent visit to Scotland. This former fishing village has only one walkway that is too narrow for cars, so everyone has to park at one end of the town. But even given that fact, apparently Tesco will still deliver groceries there! I saw a couple of delivery people carting a load of food up to the last house in the village while I was there. It’s not recommended that visitors drive all the way down the steep slope to the village, so they did a good job to get there.

The quiet row of houses is a magical place.
