I like the over-saturated look in this, personally. As I said, it looks like how being in St. Wolfgang on a summer day feels. (That one’s from personal experience.) This desaturated version just doesn’t seem as alive to me. It’s just my personal opinion
No but the dog is close by. I took a pic of him in the window as I’m the only person that’s ever done that. http://i.imgur.com/PsZBdhD.jpg
Incredibly beautiful but the town seems artificial to me, as a guy who lives in another small Illinois town. It is really hard to organically regrow old mining towns…perhaps Galena is as good as can be, in which case I’m not complaining.
I was there last summer! The [Aiguille du Midi](http://www.imustgothere.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/aiguilledumidi5.jpg) on the slopes of Mont Blanc right above Chamonix is a highlight. One of my favorite places.
Quite nice, they should be filling these back up once summer arrives. One thing though, the Ottawa metropolitan has approximately one million people. How is the capital of Canada rural exactly?
Come on, people, use Google Image search to find and post the highest quality image. A 500 x 700 pixel image doesn’t quality as SFWPorn. It’s practically a thumbnail. http://img.xcitefun.net/users/2013/09/337918,xcitefun-milky-way-south-island-new-zealand-1.jpg
I got 10 stitches at the bottom of that hill after I gashed my leg falling down a waterfall. Everyone is so nice and it’s beautiful even with no filter 🙂

I was there this Easter weekend and all throughout there wasn’t a cloud in the sky(e). I’ve got a panorama from Armadale Pier that I took that shows this much better than I could ever explain.

I wish I could tell you. Based off of the swiss geography I remember, probably in the lowlands belt that runs east-west in the country (between Lausanne and Zurich in the linked map). Based off the photo, probably at the base of the mountains
I know it’s part of Galway Bay and the Burren, as for the actual name of the location, I’m not quite sure. [Here’s](https:[email protected]/10126839286/in/set-72157636266293993) part of my flickr album of pictures I took when I was studying in Ireland last school year. Next few pictures
Already posted a pic there, just a few days ago of the same view, but thanks for the suggestion.
Hey I’ve been there! There’s a cool old cog railway that goes up the mountain and some nice hiking. Absolutely gorgeous.
There’s a place around that corner with really good spätzle; you should try it out one day 🙂
Thanks very much! I got this one shooting handheld w/ a Canon 5D Mk III & a Canon EF 70-200 f/2.8 IS II. Settings were ISO 100, 50 mm, f/22, 1/50 sec. I underexposed the foreground a few stops to get the detail in
Ahh, beat me too it. I was going to post this! I’m planning my second Europe trip and have this as one of the destinations. You need to take a boat in from the train station, super excited to see this astoundingly beautiful place!
I can imagine. It just breathes nostalgia. I imagine myself to one day cross the pond and tour the states and see all these small towns. Authentic Americana has always fascinated me.
I’ve always wanted to go to the Rockies, they look beautiful.
[Anyone else reminded of this?](http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20121114040359/disney/images/thumb/3/3a/Tnbc-disneyscreencaps_com-1563.jpg/1000px-Tnbc-disneyscreencaps_com-1563.jpg)
Looks like difficult land to grow crops on and whatnot. Is there any agriculture in the region?
>On the other hand, flowing with water coming from glaciers of the Chamonix valley, light brown and muddy from its high levels of silt is the Arve River TIL, indeed.
not that mountain top in the background, but one right above these house, i’ve been on. you can kinda see the [background in one of my pictures!](http://imgur.com/DgxApfT) Aurland is my favorite town in the world! EDIT: more pictures to share because i can! (i
