As a follow up on the previous post about Notre Dame, here is another impressive catholic church that is located in the city Aparecida just outside Rodovia Presidente Dutra (BR-116, the main highway between São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro) in the state of São Paulo in Brazil.
The exterior may not be as interesting as the Gothic cathedrals, but this is actually one of the largest church buildings in the world. And by “largest” I mean floor area. With its 12 000 m², it’s only surpassed by St. Peters Basilica in Vatican City. Compared to lots of churches that are surrounded by tall buildings in cities, this one being in the open, makes it quite visible in the landscape.

Notre-Dame de Paris (Our Lady of Paris), or just simply Notre Dame is one of the most famous and most visited Gothic cathedrals in the world. It’s situated on the Île de la Cité on the river Seine in Paris, France.
When we visited the city on a sunny but cold and windy weekend in the spring of 2016, we used the opportunity to take a closer look at this impressive building.
Here are a few photos we like to share with you guys, hope you enjoy them as much as we do.

What an amazing place! We’ve been wanting to make this post for a long time, but for different reasons its been put on hold. Iguazu Falls in the Parana state of Brazil is a well kept secret, at least for us in Norway. At the time we went there, I’ve never heard anybody talk about it. Now, more than 10 years later, I’ve only talked to a couple that mention something like, isn’t there a waterfall on the border between Brazil and Argentina? Sure thing it is! And here are our photos of this natural marvel!

A helicopter was flying up and down to a new cell phone antenna, finishing their work and taking equipment back from the hill, when I decided to take some shots with the Nikkor 200-500 f/5.6 VR on the Nikon D750. Enjoy!

Being relatively close to where we live, the Nidaros Cathedral (Nidarosdomen) its a building we return to quite often. Every time we come there, we discover more details and hidden treasures that we haven’t noticed before.
When most people go to see the Gothic Cathedral in Trondheim, they only look at the front. Nothing wrong with that, but the building has so much more to offer. After spending some time at the front, please have a walk around it too.
