    Hi Sven,

    Chambord is not in Pays de la Loire but in Centre.
    I also have found the place of the Abbaye ruïnes, have a look at my comment under your photo.

    Greetings,

    Hello Sven,

    I think I found the Name of the Ro... Ooops! I mean the Name of the Location! :)
    It should be L’ Abbaye de Beauport, close to Paimpol.

    Bonjour Yuval,

    Yes! It is a lot better. More space around them and they are both placed a little out the center, almost perfect composition! :)
    Now you will get a bright green smiley from me!

    Bonjour Yuval,

    It’s a bit of a pity you couldn’t frame the picture lower at the bottom and tighter at the right side because it creates some unbalance in the composition, but even though it is a very nice photo!

    Bonjour Christine,

    La Nature est une Artiste!
    Une image un peu sombre et qui évoque plutôt l’hiver, très belle observation en tous cas! Ça me fait tout de même penser à ton travail photographique qui peut passer de l’euphorie à la mélancolie...

    OK?

    Bonjour dear Beverley,

    After reading your conversation with Ike, I couldn’t resist uploading another WS.
    It was indeed a lovely spot, we would love to go in that area again and visit more of Oxfordshire and the villages of Cotswold...
    Your image is precisely how I remember our walk there, thank you!

    Hi dear John,

    You are absolutely right, you never will have to fear from the “moderators” because as long as I know and follow you I have never seen a note which could be insufficient or not suitable.
    And of course this wonderful image is perfectly translating TrekEarth spirit... Absolutely crisp, perfect framing, lovely bokeh... A diamond in our TE Gallery!

    Warm and friendly regards from Holland,
    ​​​​​​​Viviane

    Please read carefully the TOS before posting another close up of a flower, it is not allowed on TrekEarth, try on TrekLens where the rules are easier...

    Hi Robert,

    Such a lovely pastoral view...
    It makes me think of the region where I was born in South east of France, called the Dauphiné. We have many hills in that region just between the Rhône valley and the Alpes and I am sure it looks just like your photo now spring has come... Such a pity we are not allowed to travel to France for the moment!
    Here in the Netherlands spring has been lovely these latest days but, as you may know, it is quite flat! That’s why I just admired your picture, thank you for sharing!

    Bonjour Luciano,

    You are absolutely right... If the rest of Europe doesn’t take severe mesures it will be soon as dramatic as I your country now. I am sure that the only way to stop the contamination is to strictly follow the rules given by the specialists, isolate ourselves for a while and avoiding contamination in both ways.
    It is so very sad that your country was the first to endure the disastrous consequences of Corona virus.

    I wish for you and all the people of Italy that there will soon come an end to this situation and that you won’t loose anyone.

    Bien amicalement,
    Viviane

    Bonjour Elaine,

    The B&W conversion was a great idea, it looks like it takes us a century - or more - back in time when indeed lives seemed to be slower. ;)
    I like the composition very much, the dust on the sandy path adds to the feeling of past times.i just wondered if the schoolboy on the bike could have been placed out of the frame without changing everything...

    Kind regards,
    Viviane

    Very sharp and bright image. But you are right, the "splash of pink" makes the picture and made me open the thumbnail! Very well observed.

    Hi Daniel,

    I think I just lied to your Gallery neighbour, Bertolucci, because I said there weren’t any “photos that yelled to be opened” on TE gallery nowadays... But see... I was wrong, because this one is so typically “Holland” and very well composed - all elements are in it, bike, sky, buildings, paved street!
    Thank you for my second moment of pleasure to my eyes this day! :)

    Wij - alle TE-ers - boffen dat je terug bent... Eindelijk thumbnails die schreeuwen om geopend te worden en als ze dan open zijn... WoW!
    Mooie framing, precies goed uitgesneden - zonder dat blauwe maandje hadden wij iets gemist - scherp en een plezier voor je ogen!
    Dank je!
