Vienna on a grey morning. Vienna is one of the places I've lived. What you can't tell from this photo is just to the right is the Christkindlmarkt. They host this lovely Christmas market on Rathausplatz in Wien, Österreich, every year.
This tropical beach picture places the view on the sand with the surf rolling in gently. A lone starfish lies on the beach awaiting a beachcomber to discover it. Neither the photographer nor the location of this beach is identified.
