If there is the most amazing hotel lobby I've ever been to, it must be this one at this brand new luxurious sand dunes resort in Oman. I got there just before sunset, so the light was great and the surrounding sand dunes had such a great color. I only wondered how they gonna operate this in the heat of the summer, and the reply was that they wont be open during those very warm months.

What was the most impressive or unusual loby you've been to ?

Middle East - Sultanate of Oman - Al Batinah Region - Wadi Al Abyadh - Wadi Abidh - Wadi Abiyad - Sea of beautiful golden sand dunes south of Hajar mountains

Camera Model: Canon EOS 5DS; Lens: EF16-35mm f/4L IS USM; Focal length: 16.00 mm; Aperture: 11; Exposure time: 6.0 s; ISO: 100

It has been many busy weeks on the road with limited time for social media, despite that, there are many new photos from another part of ‪#‎Iran‬, this time ‪#‎Yazd‬ and ‪#‎Kerman‬ desert provinces with some of the iconic architecture. It was Yazd, where I first learnt about wind towers (ancient form of air-condition) and everytime I see it elsewhere in Mmiddle East, I always remember Yazd first. The unique desert with sand castles was a joy to visit multiple times as well.

If you wish to see these wonderful ‪#‎Iranian‬ locations through my lens, feel free to check out many new photos on :

Have you been in Iran yourself ? What is your favorite location ?

Tibet has been on TOP of my list of places to visit since I cant even remember. I thought I got small taste of #Tibet when I visited Leh, Ladakh - Indian part of Himalayas, which is often called small Lhasa. When I finally got a chance to visit Tibet, still rather restricted area, my expectation could not be bigger. I somehow thought I'd find a place similar to Seven years in Tibet movie. Unfortunately the place I found completely lacked the Tibetan spirit I envisioned in my mind. The highest train ride over 5,072 m (16,640 feet) above see level was surely a great experience, although it didnt feel that we were that high. The ultra modern Chinese train station in Lhasa was very clean but lacked anything to do with #Tibetan culture as did most of the city. Visit to Potala Palace have been rather athletic experience, climbing all those stairs in altitude of 3,700 m, where the oxygen in the air is noticeably thinner. There is only small area of Barkhor Square with remaining Tibetian spirit, which is what I expected the whole city to be.

I'm not sure if I had known all of this, would I had enjoyed my visit more, as it is often our expectation that doesn't get fulfilled and brings disappointment. I've only spent time in Lhasa and close surrounding. I hope that when I visit next time and venture further into the Tibet,  I still find what is terribly missing from Lhasa.

Have you been in Lhasa or Tibet yourself  ? What was your experience ?

#‎Ireland‬ has some really stunning coastline, which probably doesn't come as a big surprise when it is an island,  however add those wonderful historical towns, remote villages, many #Celtic monuments and you get a wonderful mix for any travel or landscape photographer.

Romania might not be the most popular or visited country in Europe, however that might be changing quickly. It has plenty to offer - might it be places like stunning ‪#‎Transfagarasan‬ Highway, Romania's most spectacular and best known mountain road or ‪#‎Dracula‬'s Castle - Most famous Gothic fortress perched on rock. There are several UNESCO sites such as ‪#‎Biertan‬ fortified church and so much more. If you were not sure where to travel next,  ‪#‎Romania‬ might be great opion for you.

I hope those of you that celebrate Easter had a wonderful time. I had very unusual experience during Santa Semana - Holy Week in Spain across various locations. The celebrations of Holy Week leading towards Easter Sunday consist of processions of various brotherhoods or fraternities dressed up in for most of us in very unusual way.

It is so interesting to see how different cultures embrace this important Christian period, from chocolate eggs hunt to this very (at least to my eyes) obscure religious and rather powerful ceremonies all across the Spain.  

Have you ever experienced Santa Semana yourself  ?

I was in Seville and Cordoba during this year's Semana Santa. Maybe our paths crossed and we didn't know :)

Europe - Scandinavia - Norway - North of the Arctic Circle - Nordland county - Lofoten islands archipelago - Austvågøya island - Vågan - Svolvaer - #Svolvær - Chief town & port of the Lofoten island group under fresh cover of snow during winter time

Lofoten Islands can be real paradise, especially if the weather works out well, however if it is like last few days when wind sometimes reached speed of 180km/h, then it is bit less of winter wonderland..

Ostrovy #Lofoten   jsou jedno z nejkrásnějších míst, které jsem kdy navštívila.  Ovšem pokud nemáte štěstí na počasí, jako v techto dnech, kdy rychlost větru byla i pres 180km/h,  to není to nejharmoničtější místo ;)

Já byl v Bødo v zimě, bohužel jsme chytli spíše deštivé počasí a po polárce ani vidu...Jinak norsko, to je nádherná země. Jestli má někdo zájem, na svém blogu mám fotografie ze středního Norska, žil jsem rok asi hodinu od Lillehameru, přesňeji Vinstra.

Travel & Landscape Photography from over 90 Countries around World ~ www.LucieDebelkova.com
Introduction
Lucie Debelkova Travel & Landscape Photography from over 90 countries around the world, particularly from Middle East region - Yemen, Iran, Kuwait, Oman, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Qatar, Bahrain, Syria, Jordan and others. Large collections from Asia (from far and distant Mongolia to super modern HongKong) & Europe (from historical marvels of Prague to the most northen point of Europe - North Cape - where the sun never sets during few months a year).
 
The biggest selection of my work can be always found on my personal web :
 
www.luciedebelkova.com

Philosophy of Photography

My philosophy is to take positive photographs highlighting the best a place has to offer, whether that is the vibrancy of the landscapes, the architectural grandeur of ancient monuments or modern architecture, the warmth and friendliness of the people or the magic of my favorite part of day - Twilight - the Blue hour.

The blue hour, coming from a "French expression "l'heure bleue," refers to twilight, the period each morning and evening where there is neither full daylight nor complete darkness. The time is considered special because of the quality of the light."

I enjoy capturing places in an eye-catching and colourful way; from the very old traditional or very modern places of the Middle East region to bustling backstreets of Asia to the spectacular cities of Europe. My collection of images focused primarily on low light scenes; from iconic travel destinations to lesser known places and the people who inhabit them.

Compositionally I aim for clarity and often simplicity to communicate my ideas and look for balance wherever possible. I seek out spectacular and vivid light to create a sense of wonder. Colour is a tonic to me and something I actively seek out.

The photographs on this site show all the success I have had with my images but none of the failures. For every sucessful trip where there has been good light there a 5 times as many that produce very little in the way of images. Landscape & travel photography is hard work and requires a significant amount of time and dedication.
