Devil Island Penguins
How this group of Adélie penguins got up here remains a question, as there is a minimum of ten feet down in all directions of the iceberg.

Liebe Birgit,

an diesen fantastischen Arktis-Bildern mit den überwältigenden Eisformationen und den fast unwirklichen Blautönen, kann ich mich schier nicht satt sehen.

Einfach wunderbar und vielen Dank
mit lieben Grüßen
Britta-Gudrun

Hallo liebe Birgit,

in der Antarktis war ich noch nicht aber schon oft in der Arktis und ich kann dir nur sagen;
nach Eisbergen wird man süchtig.Speziell die, die schon gekippt sind, haben Farbspiele, die unfassbar schön sind:-D.

Danke für diesen traumschönen Eintrag,
deine Brigi(ne)tte

Hallo Birgit,

Was für wunderbare Bilder von der Antarktis. Wer sich solche Bilder anseht, fragt sich doch nicht mehr ab ob die Antarktis geschützt werden muss, oder nicht...

Herzliche Grüsse,
Frans

Apart from sorting them out from styes, attributes,
Motorcycle Fairings materials and so on, there is one important clue for tracing them.
Asics Tiger That is, from the brand itself. However, it is always not easy neither. Not only there are more and more brands going into fashion, but also the intricated Beats By Dre product names are too difficult to remember them. Thus, the category of brands was ominized here. But if you prefer to sort them out via brands, I'd like to recommend a valuable women high heel shoes website for you, that is LadyShoesMall.com, which is an exclusive women high heel shoes online store.
