Photographer Bernhard Lang’s Aerial Views Adria is a series that he shot while taking to the skies to document the sea of humanity on the beaches off the Mediterranean coast. What he is able to show is that in the perspective of height and distance we are all tiny creatures of much less significance than we perceive. The Adriatic Sea is where Byzantine, Roman, and Venetian sailors in addition to today’s ocean-lovers have all appreciated its glowing, brilliant waters.

Rotomairewhenua is emptied by the west branch of the Sabine River, a body of water that is part of the Buller River system.

In 1962, Tony Bennett recorded perhaps his most iconic song. It was about that fabled city by the bay. The lyrics to that tune go like this:
I left my heart in San Francisco

The morning fog may chill the air, I don’t care…
