It's the tallest in the US, but sometimes a detailed look conveys the power and size much more effectively.

Le Consulat Restaurant, Montmartre, Paris, France

Midnight in Paris. Artisans, mimes, and the smell of fresh baked pastries fill the senses in this vibrant part of the City of Light.

Thanks +Ralph Mendoza, +Leyla A. Roberson  and +Richard Wong. This was a deep freeze (by LA standards) a couple years ago that created some wonderful conditions.

On the Blog > Antelope Canyon Magic:

Antelope Canyon on the Navajo Indian Reservation in Arizona is arguably one of the finest slot canyons in the American southwest, and certainly one of the most photographed. Although beautiful to witness with the naked eye, these jewels of the desert really shine when a long exposure reveals the light and color ...

Anasazi petroglyphs on sandstone, Valley of Fire State Park, Nevada USA

The Ancestral Pueblo Indians known as the Anasazi (or Ancient Ones) thrived in the Four Corners region between 900 and 1200 A.D. before mysteriously disappearing. Their impressive cliff dwellings have stood the test of time in places like Mesa Verde and Chaco Canyon, and their rock art is a fascinating glimpse into the daily lives of these resourceful people. Read more on my blog:

Lake Kozjak and travertine cascades on the Korana River, Plitvice Lakes National Park, Croatia

Here's another view from the beautiful Plitvice Lakes region of Croatia. The water is some of the purest in Europe as it filters through vast subterranean karst formations. The unique color is a result of algae and moss that grow on the travertine dams which separate the lakes. Please click to view large.
