And so we find the quivering passion of two people
Arriving together
Enraptured by the proximity of the here and now

I know you
More than anyone else
You know me
Perhaps less than yourself
Still we drift into the sky
Like we are expected

Venice is often considered to be the most beautiful city of pompous swagger that still blesses us with gorgeous living artistry in the streets, alleys and squares. It rose to amazing human achievements and now we watch it falling into ruins while the world stares on in helpless wonder.

There are so many amazing cities in the world but really who has the history, the pomp, the grandeur, and the ever present danger of the Aegean Sea, that once gave it Mastery over the Region and now comes lapping through it's doors.

So many photos present Plaza de St Marco, the Grand Canal, and the famous lagoon. Although beautiful panoramas that capture the imagination, of which I will share a few, here is a view I have not seen presented before.

Here, we can see two mighty Atlases holding up the world with a weather vane of Fortune crowning the top of the Dogana Del Mar Museum. Interestingly, the weather vane of Fortune actually shifts with the wind and you will see it pointing in different direction in different photographs ... did you ever notice that before?

Down below at the lagoon level we see the modern working class bustling and hustling where all the waters meet. The ancient Gondolas now resting to our right. To our left, the utilitarian ships of modern commerce and labour are plowing toward their own nests at the edge of the lagoon, preparing for tomorrow.

The sun is setting but the majestic canal is restless and still grand. Here, the humans still love to stretch their legs and wander through the hidden alleys and lighted windows of cafes and bars and lanterns that shine beckoning through the mist and darkness.

You can never visit Venice and feel significant for here is where the Masters of Artistic Conception truly were at the Top of their Game.

We can only dream ... but what a dream!

It is recommended that you drink a special tea to climb to these hills that remind travellers of Scotland...the hills not the tea :). Although you are in the highlands ... very high ... you are actually south of the equator in Ecuador about an hour outside of Cuenca, the ancient capital and our home base.

There are no guides here, just you and the hills and a lookout tower that serves hot chocolate and high altitude tea.

We spent a day roaming these hills with some friends, and drinking the tea, and the clouds and wind shivered me to my timbers...wait that's pirate talk... let's put it into perspective ... the wind came from one direction and the cold came from everywhere....There were no lightweight jackets here.

A few trails surround the lakes and wind into the hills. You can spend all day here. Some llamas came by to chuckle to themselves as we wondered what weather would come next. They knew :) This is definitely an area where you wear for whatever might come ... and it always will.

Welcome to the Cajas Mountains in Ecuador where elevations reach 13,500 feet. Known as the gateway to the snowy mountains ... it will definitely take your breath away :)

Whenever I am fortunate to be at sea, I love to be on deck for the sunrise. Every one. There is always something magical when the glowing light ignites the sky, the sea and any islands in the way.

In the moment of this photograph, we were just passing the Bora Main Motu Reef heading toward the only channel that leads into the spectacular inner lagoon of Bora Bora. Mount Otemanu at the centre of the island is obscured by clouds.

The inner lagoon is an unbelievable paradise of a thousand hues of blues and greens where the snorkeling and diving is out of this world.

For this morning, I was happy the clouds from the earlier rain hung around long enough for the photograph but glad that they would move on for the days ahead.

Two hours later I was in the water...

So I slept in one morning after the night before, if you know what I mean, and the sun had already climbed into the sky spraying the island with the soft promise of the heat to come.

The streets were surprisingly empty so I took advantage and wandered with my 2nd favorite friend, if you know what I mean, and found these stairs spilling down into the beautiful deep blue of the Aegean Sea.

This was the Santorini I dreamed of: waking up to: sunshine and the deepest hues of the ocean that filled a long extinct volcano.

Whenever I travel to a location for the first time, I realize I am sharing this with millions of kindred souls but it doesn't matter. This is the first time for me. This is the lightning rod that makes me want to travel more... and so I do.

Although the eye is besieged with so many details, I still liked to come to this spot before breakfast, before the crowds, before the heat of the day when photographs are difficult to harness and we are forced to drink the beer fast! But that is still hours away.

So I captured this image while it was still young and last night became today and we drove our ATV to the beaches and relaxed where the sands arrive in a rainbow of colors.

You should come, maybe take a photograph you will always remember.
