“Each new day is a blank page in the diary of your life. The secret of success is in turning that diary into the best story you possibly can. I wish you Happy New Year and diary full of best stories ever written in your life.” – Laozi
Here is Part 2 of my 10 favorite photos of 2018. Seeing them together, I notice that in all the pictures there is water. This time not the sea (see Part 1) but rivers, lake and the canals of Venice. If I were accustomed to introspection probably I should ask myself why, in my favorite pictures, there is always water… Ah, it could be a good resolution for 2019.
The month of June was very rainy in Switzerland. The heavy rains swelled the river Rhine giving us an impressive and wild spectacle of the Rhine Falls.
This photo was taken three years ago. I was in Siracusa (Syracuse) in Sicily and the picture shows the seafront of Ortigia at first light of the day. Now I decided to re-edit this image in a different way. It seems to me that this new version better conveys the atmosphere of the upcoming sunrise. Compare it with the first version of this Image.
