Time spent by the sea is never wasted…
At Eberbach Abbey, Germany
Quadriga of Victory, the historic horses atop the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin, Germany. Loved the spirit & history of Berlin.
More ups here.
Sanssouci, former summer palace of Frederick the Great.
Situated in Potsdam near Berlin.
Ornate gardens & sculptures.
The royal life for some.
While the rest blog.
Shots of a sunrise across the Frankfurt horizon.
‘Twas a goodly morning.
Rather early though.
Fernsehturm – TV Tower in Berlin, Germany.
When the sun shines on the dome, the reflection usually appears in the form of a Cross & Berliners named it the “Pope’s Revenge” –

This photograph was captured in the very peak of a German summer’s day. The serene green is deceptive because the heat on that day was almost unbearable, at a sweltering 40 degrees. Captured in the gardens of Sanssouci, the ‘summer palace’ of Frederick the Great, in Potsdam near Berlin.
I decided to add a touch of drama from Shakespeare’s Sonnet –
And summer’s lease hath all too short a date:
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines…
Marble sculpture of ‘The Princesses’ together, forever. Sculpted by Johann Gottfried Schadow & displayed at the museum in Berlin, Germany. Featured in an earlier post this month – Guten Tag Berlin
