  • Submitted a challenge entry Two color rose and the Turquish bee
    This obliging Turquish bee, in the Garden of Mevlana Museum in Konya (Turquey), was hovering over a two-color almost perfect rose, I quickly captured it. Just one example of a visual pleasure that mother nature gives us.

  • Submitted a challenge entry Canada Aviation and Space Museum
    With its wing-like shape and its reflective steel shell (reminiscent of traditional hangars), the architecture respects the spirit of the museum. It has a focus on Canada’s contributions and innovations, this museum offers a glimpse into aviation history featuring aircrafts from all eras of flight, flight simulators, and many interactive exhibitions.

  • Submitted a challenge entry Château Montebello (Montebello, Québec)
    It was called the Seigniory Club in the 1930s. Despite the depression, an army of 3500 laborers completed this huge log chateau in only 4 months. The club's grand opening was on 1 July 1930. The hotel is situated on one of the last surviving land grants made by 17th-century French kings to early settlers of what was then La Nouvelle France. In the 1970s it was renamed Château Montebello. Queens, Princes, heads of state, presidents, etc. stayed here throughout the years. I took this shot on dec 3 this year, it truly is a beautiful historic building and site.
