Fishing Huts in Lahemaa National Park by Srijit Bhaumick

Srijit Bhaumick (a.k.a. Bhotch) shares a lovely snowy scene of fishermen huts on the southern shore of the Gulf of Finland. Find these huts in the small Altja Fishing Village at Lahemaa National Park. You will find that in the summer the shacks are in regular use but mostly abandoned in the winter.

Calgary Central Library by Ian Tucker

Ironman Ian flexes his photography muscle, capturing the fascinating architecture of the Calgary Central Library. Not only featuring an oval-like form, the interior is also a large atrium with a huge skylight. Also, you will find the landscaping around the library and adjoining plaza consist of terracing inspired by the foothills of the Canadian Rockies.

Thomas Jefferson Memorial by Shawn M. Kent

To conclude, I too was in Washinton D.C this week and spent a wonderful afternoon shooting on an unusually mild day. After editing a few, this is one of my favorites from the adventure. This location is by far the best spot to shoot the stunning Thomas Jefferson Memorial.

I’ll be honest, this week was crazy busy. Besides my short trip to Washington, we attended a wedding, and my 7-year old taking a turn and getting very ill our hands are full. Needless to say, it’s been busy. As a result, here at PIXEO HQ we are just chilling in pajamas and sipping herbal tea. Here is hoping next week isn’t so crazy and Lisette and I can relax a little. Happy snapping everyone!

After travelling the world as a military photographer, he now mostly shoots landscapes and enjoys travelling with his wife and family. Other hobbies include painting, mixed martial arts, and beer.
