Featured image above: Luther memorial at Market Square, Eisleben, Germany – 26 Oct.

(1) ➙ Vancouver, 1 January

Mountains over Indian Arm, from the Burnaby Mountain campus of Simon Fraser University.

(10) ➙ Wittenberg, 31 October

A gentle pull to the Castle Church on the annual Reformation Day holiday.

"October 31 : Reformation Day, holiday observed in 5 eastern states." On the 499th anniversary of the Reformation, a cold foggy morning greeted residents and visitors to the "Luther town" of Wittenberg in the German state of Saxony-Anhalt. From today, various events throughout the region, state, and country began marking the quincentennial anniversary of the Reformation. Obscured in the mist stood the over 80-metre (260-feet) high tower of the Schlosskirche (Castle- or All Saints'-Church).
