    The Burrard Street Bridge always looks beautiful at night. I captured this photo just below the bridge on a small beach accessible from the English Bay Sea...

Arthur’s Seat in Edinburgh, Scotland is the group of hills found at the foot of Holyrood Palace. The hills are frequented by both tourists and locals and is a fantastic spot for incredible views of Edinburgh. The hills themselves are fairly plain with little or no vegetation except for tall grass and if you time it right, heather.

Once at the top of Arthur’s Seat you can see various foot paths that have been created over the years. I found one that appeared to be a road rather than a foot path leading right back down to Edinburgh.

A late September rainstorm swept over Florence, Italy one evening. The warm air quickly cooled and flocks of tourists scrambled for cover or to purchase an umbrella that magically appeared in the hands of the street vendors. Watching the commotion below from our hotel room on the main square was quite the spectacle.

After a couple of hours the streets cleared, the rain stopped and we took a walk through the wet cobblestone streets. The conditions were perfect for catching the city lights reflecting through the streets.

This photo was taken in the square of the Uffizi Gallery just down from the Palazzo Vecchio.

San Gimignano, Italy is a small walled medieval hillside village located just outside of Florence. San Gimignano is also known as the Town of Fine Towers as it boasts several towers that can be seen from afar. After perusing the small streets and corridors I stood in awe at the many different buildings featuring Romanesque and Gothic Architecture. This town is definitely worth a visit even just for a few hours.

Although highly touristed there are a few areas to escape for some piece and quiet. One of them is the top of the bell tower where I took this photo. A small 5 Euro entry fee and 150 steps gets you to the top with incredible panoramic views.
