A giant sperm whale surfaces off the coast of Kaikoura, New Zealand, against the backdrop of the Southern Alps, South Island. The whale's play and feeding ground is one of the deep trenches in the area, and it connects with the abyssal Kermadec Trench, at about 30,000 feet one of the deepest spots on earth. The mountain range in the background was formed at the same time, being pushed up in the grinding mingle of the Pacific and the Australian tectonic plates.

Boulangerie and Patisserie in Cassis, Côte d'Azur. In Italian called 'Costa Azzurra' it's a beautiful stretch of coastline that includes several towns like Nice, Cannes, and others like Cassis. Cassis is a beautiful little town that tourists flock to during the summer months -understandably so. I had to be very very patient to get this shot, with about a hundred other people walking by until I got the one I wanted at the right moment.

Gli Scalzi, Venezia.
One of the many beautiful church facades in Venice, Gli Scalzi was built in the 17th century, and today the train station is located right next to it. It doesn't house as many artistic treasures as other Venetian churches, also because it lost an important Tiepolo fresco in 1915, when an Austrian shell hit the church.
At the adjacent train station, sleepy pigeons (the flying rats of Venice), are basking in the first rays of the winter sun, occupying the sign of Italy's 'Ferrovie Statali'.

In front of the church of San Giorgio Maggiore.
San Giorgio Maggiore was designed by Andrea Palladio, and the views from its campanile are nothing less than spectacular.
San Giorgio keeps watch over the Bacino San Marco, the space between the island of San Giorgio Maggiore and San Marco.
San Marco is about a mile away, illuminated by the weak November rays of the sun.
