Youíre heading into a web story comprising more than 1350 images from most parts of Lithuania. The larger cities are represented, along with little cosy places in the countryside, the resorts along the coast, as well as the culture and everyday life. Most images are taken with the digital camera Nikon Coolpix 950, and a lot of them with the Sony F-828, but some of the early ones are made with Canon AE-1 and then scanned from negatives. The index has links to satellite imagery of most objects.
