Harajuku Beauty Waiting at a Pedestrian Crossing

During a visit to Japan I spent a morning in Harajuku, the — probably still — hip and fashionable place to be, at least when you are under 25. There are tons of characters walking around the street with the most astonishing hairstyle, clothes or outfit. One of those characters was the girl in the picture standing at a pedestrian crossing, waiting to cross the street, looking at her mobile phone.

Cobblestone Road in Montalcino, Italy.

Montalcino is a village in the hilly heart of Tuscany. It is famous for its Brunello wine which is considered to be one of Italy’s best red wines. The village itself is small with only about five thousand inhabitants. It is a picturesque town with lots of cobblestone roads. The one shown is located a little off the main tourist attractions and goes steeply uphill.

A Waterfall in Styria, Austria

Waterfall in Hieflau, Gesäuse National Park, Styria, Austria

A waterfall and small creek in Styria(Austria).

This waterfall is located in the Gesäuse natural park in Styria. The natural park is situated along a river of the same name. It is a wild romantic region, with lots of woods, forests, creeks and rivers which give it a feeling of being in a fairytale country. Green is the dominating colour, an intense, saturated green, as can be seen in the picture.
