Sofia

Alexander Nevsky Cathedral

I have always wanted to visit Sofia and the opportunity came this year.  I was visiting Vienna and decided at the last minute to spend a few days there.  What an eye-opener it was!  The city has much to offer.  Lots of historical places to admire.  Easy to travel around.  The people are friendly.  And, above all, quite reasonably cheap.  The photo above is considered to be the biggest Orthodox Church in all of Bulgaria.  It is called the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral.

Ball’s Lower Waterfalls

There are hidden treasures in Southern Ontario that even long-time residents are not even aware of.  For most people, the only waterfall they know about is the mighty Niagara Falls.  There are, however, other waterfalls spread throughout the Niagara Escarpment, such as this one.

Just a bit

As I stood on the seashore one afternoon to do long exposure photography, I was faced with a choice: to make the water very smooth (ethereal) or capture the waves as they break through the rocks and recede.  I chose the latter and I think I succeeded.  What do you think?
