What a beautiful day with cloudless blue sky and sunshine.

And what a breathtaking scenery.

On my trip to Niagara Falls, I happened to pass the idyllic town of Niagara On The Lake, Ontario, Toronto. Here, the Niagara River flows into Lake Ontario. The city is not only known as Canada’s most famous wine-growing region, it was also declared a National Historic Site in 2003, making it a monument of historical importance.

So please sit down and enjoy ….

Grandview Ave

Wikivoyage writes about Pittsburgh: “Pittsburgh has some of the top sights … and, according to many Americans, the most spectacular city panorama in the United States.”

For my part, I totally agree with that. Even the “journey” is special. The ‘Monongahela Incline’, which was commissioned in 1870, is considered to be the oldest continuously operated mountain railway in the world. It leads up to Mount Washington, the district on the other side of the Monongahela River.

No wonder that the street up there is appropriately named Grandview Avenue. Here you have a wonderful view of downtown Pittsburgh with its impressive skyscrapers and numerous bridges.

Anyone who has seen this view with their own eyes, recognizes the city again and again. Even if, as in this picture, not all structures and buildings are clearly visible.

It is very impressive how our brains works, isn´t it? You immediately recognize and assign the motif, even with such unclear images.
