Southern Poland, May 2016 by Mariusz Kamionka (mkamionka) Gold Star Critiquer/Gold Star Workshop Editor/Gold Note Writer [C: 4002 W: 91 N: 10405] (42903) :: 2016-05-03 - 2016-05-14 :: 1131 Views

I am living away from my country for about 20 years now so each visit to Poland is practically a trip abroad. In addition to visiting family I always try to plan some sightseeing. This time my trip to Poland was exceptionally fruiful. I have covered multiple locations along the whole length of the southern border from Walbrzych to Przemysl.
I have visited four picturesque castles:
1. Ksiaz
2. Moszna
3. Krasiczyn
4. Przemysl
and three UNESCO World Heritage Sites:
1. Centennial Hall in Wroclaw
2. Church of Peace in Swidnica
3. Salt Mine in Wieliczka. (12 photos)

Patagonia 2010 by Mariusz Kamionka (mkamionka) Gold Star Critiquer/Gold Star Workshop Editor/Gold Note Writer [C: 4002 W: 91 N: 10405] (42903) :: 2010-11-03 - 2010-11-17 :: 3365 Views

Southern America has too many spectacular places to visit all of them in one trip. That is why we focused on more or less one region: Southern Patagonia on the border of Argentina and Chile.
Afterwards 2 days stay in Buenos Aires and one day trip to the capital of Uruguay, Montevideo.... (full story) (39 photos)

Turkey 2010 by Mariusz Kamionka (mkamionka) Gold Star Critiquer/Gold Star Workshop Editor/Gold Note Writer [C: 4002 W: 91 N: 10405] (42903) :: 2010-05-16 - 2010-05-31 :: 1860 Views

I have spent two weeks in the Turkish Riviera not far from the town of Side. During this time I participated in few organized excursions. It was cheap and convenient but the photographer inside me suffered a lot not being able to stop where and when or for as long as I wanted. The combination of poor weather and the nature of organized tours kept me from taking enough photos. Yet the place was spectacular and I had a fantastic time. (15 photos)

Traveling through National Parks of the American Southwest, a photographer feels like a rabbit in a lettuce field. There is never enough time...... (full story) (27 photos)
