Alright alright, here's proper picturesque. Looking from atop the Reichstag over Tiergarten in central Berlin. Originally a hunting ground for Friedrich III - the road which bisects it from east to west was used (if I have my facts right) as a landing strip at the end of WWII. Its now a beautiful and huge stretch of parkland following much replanting of what was destroyed - not only through bombing but also being used as farmland in the aftermath of the war, and the trees being used for firewood.
This was taken on my lovely Pentax SLR camera (non digital). Call me a nerd, but I love the picture quality and the colour saturation I can get with it. Strange then that today I bought a digital camera - also a Pentax - just days after my holidays. Something to cheer me up I think. I'm tired after my first day back at work and I need to get my head together before I start any writing. Maybe the weekend will give me the time and space to do so.
