The peaceful New Zealand rural settlement is bathed by a warm summer sun, complementing the all-around feeling of serenity and uncluttered existence. The epitome of ideal life, condensed to its basic emotional requirements, nicely summed up once by Milorad Pavic, “Noise is easy to make, create silence, if you can.”

Flat, fertile and beautifully textured plains of the Serbian province of Vojvodina were once upon a time, as scientific legend has it, the bottom of a Miocene epoch sea. The domain of open skies and infinite horizons will awe any photographer, particularly those who have issues with artificially imposed limits.
The flatlands are dominated by a pigmy mountain and national park of Fruska Gora, seen here in the background, a place peppered with historic and natural points of interest.

The calendar has given spring a green light, but couldn’t stop the outgoing season from flexing its muscles one more time, on its way out. It’s legal here. After all, this is the far north.
A rather long, cold, wet shoes walk through the snowy streets of St Petersburg brought me to the Alexander Garden on my way to … I can’t remember where. I had to turn around and admire the resolve of a beautiful bride to have that special day image to remember, in spite of the wet surface residues trying to creep up her wedding dress.
The backdrop was worth it – the magnificent St Isaac's Cathedral, a monument to perfection, mellowed by the veil of soft Russian snow and customary glamour of a stretch limo waiting some distance away.
I was trembling while the bride was still smiling with meaningful enthusiasm, relegating the inconvenient weather to a mere sensory illusion. Never underestimate the warming power of romantic moments.
