Norm’s Thursday Doors : January 12 2017

Mainz Cathedral

Mainz Cathedral

These are the very impressive doors of the Romanesque Cathedral in Mainz, Germany.    This building is over 1000 years old, and was built around the year 990, in the 10th century.   It’s hard to cast my mind back that far, and hard to believe that this building is still standing and being used as a Cathedral, as originally intended.    The doors are very tall, made of bronze, and date back to the 11th century.

Here are some views of the outside of the Cathedral, there was some repair work and scaffolding going on when we visited, but it is a very large and interesting building, as you can see.

Tuesdays of Texture : 17 May 2016

Danube at Night

The Danube Canal

The photo above was taken at the Danube Canal in Vienna, which is about 17 km long, and meanders around the city of Vienna, before joining the river further along.    There were many pleasure boats and small cruise ships berthed there, waiting to take people on some night time cruises.

Cows in Ireland

There are so many different breeds of cows, black, white, brown and a combination of all these colours.   I particularly like the spotted cows below, a special breed found in Zimbabwe and South Africa called the Nguni.

Vibrant : Weekly Photo Challenge

This is my ‘Vibrant‘ entry, my grand daughter, Caitlin, having fun in the Norwegian snow, all wrapped up in her winter colours, falling down, getting up again, falling down again, and getting covered in snow, and loving it all!
