Scenic Sunday: Andechs

This could be a wordless post, I think--will just say I took this photo on a perfect day in beautiful Andechs, Germany.

Suggestions please!

I was asked to take some photos of my husband the soon-to-be-published author for a large poster that will be displayed in a bookstore (!). So we took a bunch and narrowed it down to these four.
What do you think? Should we go friendly like the top ones (with/without glasses), or more author-y like the lower ones (with / without glasses.
We all have a different favorite, so please help! What do you think? We'd appreciate some input... or should we scrap these and start again?

Watery Wednesday: So peaceful

This is how I imagine Minnesota looks (I've never been), but I actually took this photo in Maine.

Scenic Sunday: Wish I was there...

I started scanning my slides again today and was thrilled to find this photo of one of the prettiest coves I have ever seen, from my visit to Nerja, Spain. I posted a close-up of the little cottage in the cliffs here, but feared this photo had somehow gotten lost in the shuffle. I apologize for posting two beaches in a row, but they are quite different, I think. Plus, it's been raining all day and these cheer me up!

Great send offs

Still in Kauai, I spent a quiet half hour walking through a Japanese cemetery with very unusual--and quite beautiful--tombstones. The top one is my favorite, but I do love the can of beer in the bottom photo! I've been to many cemeteries on my travels, but this one remained with me a long time. Obviously well-loved departed.

Scenic Sunday: Island Touring

Driving around the Garden Isle of Kauai, you pass many spectacularly scenic spots. Here is a photo I took at the Kalalau Lookout.

Scenic Sunday: Timeless Mountain

Here is an out-of-time mountain-top in Armenia, which was a Soviet Republic when I was there, but is now independent). I was lucky enough to get out in the countryside, which was truly beautiful and quite unlike other places I've been to.

Skywatch Friday: Back in--no, out--the USSR

Here is a beautiful sky over the Gulf of Finland. I took the photo on the ferry escaping (oh, sorry, leaving) the USSR, from Estonia to Helsinki.
