Another welcome.

I'm developing a following in Vladivostock.

I have two very beautiful new LJ friends from that city.

First there is theriandrora, she is a friend of mark_off_ka and liked my pictures and writing and added me to her friends list. I am really flattered and also extremely grateful that these incredible people also happen to be so good at English. I will do my best to keep it interesting for you.
The picture I have decided to dedicate to you is of the Rob Roy Stream in the Mount Aspiring National Park in New Zealand. It is a wonderful place, a pathway following the stream leading up through a thick native beech forest to an alpine meadow with views across the valley to the Rob Roy glacier. There are keas (the world's only mountain parrot) and the rumblings and creakings of the glacier are very dramatic. theriandrora I hope you like this picture, it is one of my favourites. Welcome to my LJ. I am looking forward to getting to know you better and I know I will enjoy reading your journal.

Next there is by_tanchic, who is a friend of theriandrora. (See how fast this can spread).
by_tanchic loves forests, lakes, rivers, mountains and sunglasses (which she describes as being her small illness!). She is a wonderful artist and has designed her own tattoo. I toyed with the idea of having a small Maori design tattoo done while I was in NZ but I just didn't have the guts. 
As with many of my Russian friends, I am honoured to be the first non-Russian on her friends list. 

The picture I have chosen to dedicate to you is an image of a very calm and peaceful Lake Wanaka in New Zealand. It is not always as serene as this but it is not difficult to understand why I love the place so much. I know that you would love this place too, it has mountains all around, some incredibly beautiful rivers and forests close by. The sun isn't always shining there, but it is in my memories, and there are lots of opportunities to wear your amazing sunglasses every day.

I love the way the clouds are reflected in the calm water.

So, theriandrora and by_tanchic, welcome to my LJ world. I hope you like what you see here and that our friendships grow. I have a very strong need to visit St Petersburg, and anyone who knows me will understand why, but it also seems that Vladivostock should be added to my list of desirable travel destinations. You never know, one day...  Welcome, and I hope you like the photographs I have chosen.
