    Hello Mehrdad,
    A nice photo with the green and red tent serving as a good eye-catcher in the foreground. The few persons seen along the wall of big rocks, and one in a boat, also attract my attention. The horizontal shape is well chosen.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Philippe,
    It's hard to tell what this stone depicts (if anything) but its age makes it a treasure of great value. It's almost unbelievable that people "designed" this and erected it in this place 11.000 years ago. How did they look? What did they think? A quick glance at this could have made me believe it was a work of a modern sculptor. ;-)
    Kind regards,

    Hello Daniel,
    We show the same city today, byt my photo is a little bit older (as could be expected). This is a "nothing special", but the ordinary back streets of Rome often have such a delightful atmosphere and a lot of architectural beauty, that one could go snapping photos anywhere.

    Hello Malgo,
    Why didn't you see the gallery? It could have been worth a visit. At least the tower looks great and has found a good new purpose. Along with the trees in their best autumn dress and the red tree at the front on such a sunny day, this is an almost shockingly bright photo ;-).

    Hello Stephen,
    The grey sky serves this photo well. It seems to make the colours of the buildings softer and more harmonious and doesn't draw my attention away from the architectural features. I was surprised to read in my diary from 1984 how I reached this place on foot from the railway station, quite a long walk. On the way I admired a Romanesque church and I enjoyed the walk through a forest with a Moorish castle from the 9th or 10th century, but I dismissed the Pena Palace as "19th century kitsch" and didn't bother to go inside, only seeing it from the courtyard!
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Lars, The quality is indeed not the best, and it would be better to post smaller size, maybe 1600 pixels wide. I looked at the map where it was. From my point of view, sad that you hurried to see Las Vegas when you had such marvels quite near - just on the other side of Sierra Nevada there is wonderful Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Park with the most magnificent skyscraper in the world - General Sherman. I haven't realized that Mount Whitney was so near. (4421 is not so impressive for me though :)).

    Hello Danos,
    Another fantastic sunset with incredible reflections. The dark patches of land create a fine pattern in the completely calm water of the lagoon. It is a technically perfect photo with no trace of noise even when hugely enlarged.

    Hello Lars,
    Did the driver refuse your request to stop? ;-) It's a good photo anyway, despite the high speed, and I probably wouldn't have noticed the slight blur of the foreground unless you had pointed it out. What else can I say? The mountains are magnificent and seem to feature almost 50 shades of grey. I love the contrast of clear blue sky and the yellow/green ground.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Jean,
    When I hired a taxi to go across Santo Antão I asked the driver now and then to sto so I could take photos. When we reached this place he stopped by himself and told me tourists always take photos here. So I did, and posted it on TE. It's still a magnificent view 12 years later. The sharpness and colours are perfect.

    Hello Ryszard,
    I probably would find this kind of garden slightly boring if I was down there, but seeing it from above is a different experience. I have to admire those who arranged and kept it so neatly and with the fine sharpness this photo gives us a good view of the place. The shadow of the castle wall is a nice feature. It tells us more about this place and creates a nice pattern across the corner of the photo.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Carlo,
    It's an empty street but there are so many nice features among the windows, doors and lamps and a strong vertical accent. The owner of the small shop, or maybe it's a café, in the middle has tried to make the entrance look welcoming.

    Salut Philippe

    Incredible that this stone is around 11k years old! The neolithic stone provides an obvious focal point. Lol at the rumor about sharp flints if you stab the stone so many times. TFs!

    Hi Kari,

    There used to be some of these water taxis operating from Cardwell in far north Queensland going to and from Macushla, Gould Island and Cape Richards. Not sure if they are still operating after the category 5 cyclone that smashed into Cardwell a few years ago. Anyway when the weather's good in the tropics, its very good, as depicted here. Tfs!
