A visit to the Mercedes Benz Museum in Stuttgart several years ago proved to be a paradise on earth for car lovers. Here is a mind boggling array of cars from Mercedes Benz through the ages. But first a little play with scale.
My kneeling besides the scale down model of a car gives you an idea of it’s size.
Now take a look at this amazing display of cars.

The railway track at Munabao station pulls us away into the distance.
I thought this snap was interesting as the sand swept road curves away drawing attention from the cycle in the foreground.
The strong winds create beautiful sand structures like this one .
As you cycle through the desert you see the road ahead stretching for miles on end. I took this photo on the road to Jaisalmer in a bid to capture the grit of the riders as they plod along.
I was captivated by the strong lines of this archway and tried to create an interesting view by tilting the picture.
We were treated to an enchanting display by flamenco dancers during an awards nite at a sales conference at Barcelona.

A sales conference at Ruka, Finland gave me my first brush with piles and piles of snow.
At times it was bleak and desolate. On a snow mobile ride I hated the thought of veering off course and getting lost.
A sleigh ride drawn by barking huskies was an experience I loved.
Out of the world was the huge piles of snow we encountered as we drove to the Ruka Peak Restaurant for dinner.
Amazing sights under night lights.
When you are mindful of it there is colour every where.
More than a splash of colour at The Distillery,Toronto with my travelling companions.
