The Hanseatic League (short form: Hanse or Hansa) was a commercial confederation of market towns in Northern Europe in the Late Middle Ages. It started in a couple of North German towns in the late 1100s, but came to dominate (mostly maritime) trade along the coasts of Northern Europe. The Hanse was at its most powerful in the late 14th century.
I have visited numerous cities which were a member of the Hanseatic League. Pictures from these cities are included in this theme.
This is an art installation at Phoenix's Desert Botanical Garden that took place from October 2018 through 12 May 2019. Using projection and lighting, cacti, succulents, and rock formations transform into a living nocturnal canvas.
