Long Exposure Landscapes of New Zealand

Oh to have these photos in Microsoft Jigsaw so I could always have them. Or if I could have them painted on the ceilings of my motorhome (my full-time house). To be able to see such beauty every day.

The Alpine Lakes And Waterfalls of Jiuzhaigou

For water lovers everywhere, these photographs capture imagery we certainly don’t see in the U.S., though we do have many stunning views of waterfalls, lakes, and rivers here.

Sleeping Under The Stars in The Swiss Alps

Okay. This is interesting, but with no walls or ceiling, one would need to be pretty certain there was no pending inclement weather, and being in the mountains, they would need to have warm clothing for sleeping. What about taking a shower, brushing teeth? How far to the nearest restaurant? Any danger of wildlife encroaching on the peaceful atmosphere? Hmmm. Think I’ll skip this retreat.
