The building in this photo is the famous Cologne Cathedral (in Cologne, Germany), which is the largest Gothic church in Northern Europe. We arrived at this Cathedral in the evening, and stayed until night to take the night scene photos. The architecture is so magnificent and the decorations are very delicate.

The weather has been getting warmer and warmer this week. I went to Ford Lake (in Ypsilanti, Michigan) to see if there was still any ice on the lake, and I was lucky. There was only a small portion of very thin ice still left.

This photo was taken at Yellowstone National Park. In the evening, a lot of elks were gathered around the lawn in front of Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel, and they were totally not affraid of people. We were excited when we found them because they were so close. Therefore, we drove slowly and circled the lawn to observe them. I was using my telephoto lens to catch this closeup shot. This bull elk was taking a rest after having dinner.
I took this photo at Parker Mill Park in Ann Arbor, Michigan. I love using a wide angle lens to take a photo from the end of a bridge. It shows its geometric and symmetrical beauty. By the way, there are numerous bridges over the Huron River in Ann Arbor waiting for me to discover.

This is the famous Neuschwanstein Castle in Schwangau, Germany. Neuschwanstein means "New Swan Stone". It is a palace built for Ludwig II of Bavaria. This photo was taken from a suspension bridge on the hill.

We have a very big football stadium in Ann Arbor, Michigan --- Michigan Stadium. I was trying to take some sunset photos of Michigan Stadium that day; however, I couldn't find the best angle on this side of the stadium and soon the sunset faded away. Finally, I took this photo at dusk on my way back to my car. The busy street in this photo is South Main Street.
