    Do you know where you acquired the sunset pic at the top of your page?

      I am sorry for the late reaction, but I haven’t worked on the site for a time now. Are you interested in the place where the picture is taking or are you interested in the picture itself? I ask that because we got the picture from someone else so I don’t know where and when the picture is taken. Hopefully I helped you with this information.

      Kind Regards,
