Purpose: series of 6-9 images (please use thumbnails  ;)which tell a story or cover a specific destination / happening.

Little tip: think a few months ahead to allow magazine editors plenty of time to prepare articles with - hopefully - your pictures, which could relate to an upcoming event or occurrence.

 

Other months' picture series. See here

Normandy (Honfleur, Mont Saint Michel, Etretat cliffs…).

Nice place to visit in winter, with much less visitors than during the summer holidays!

The best time to visit San Francisco is on a weeknight when heavy volume of tourists are gone.  Wintertime can also be warmer than the summer due to the persistent summer fog.  As Mark Twain said "The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco."

Winters is a historic town in Northern California, near Sacramento. It has a number of historic buildings from the Gold Rush era, and an iconic trestle train bridge that now is used by pedestrians only. A great time to go there is the spring, when the orchards around are blooming. A few miles west of Winters, towards the iconic Napa Valley, there is a famous hiking trail, the Blue Ridge trail, that gives spectacular views of the Berryessa dam. On this trail, in the spring, a number of wild native flowers can be found. Downtown has one road, where you can find the famous Buckhorn Steakhouse, the Putah Creek Cafe and a number of wine tasting places.
