    Dag Paul,

    Nice to see this island has largely recovered from the horrific Boxing Day Tsunami of 2003. Nive repetition of the longtail boats. Good colour and sharpness too. Same here. Lockdown stage 2 & might go to 3 or even 4. Tfs!

    Hello Nicolas,

    Wonderful rippled reflections, with good sharpness and minimalist colour. I like the repetition of the ladders. Tfs!

    Hi Lars,

    Wow, there was nobody there when I visited. You can clearly see the damage where more than half the hoodoos have collapsed from people climbing up on them and outright pushing them over. Still, enough remains for us to still admire. Tfs!

    Hello Miguel,

    The couple at left add scale and the giant fig or banyan tree encasing the tomb ruins is amazing. Good sharpness and diffused light. Tfs!

    A good downward pov with lush tropical green gardens. Excellent sharpness. Tfs. The visible c shaped portion of the fountain is eye catching. A song for the times.

    Hello Pierre,

    I got a cross canal ferry over there and had a look at the art exhibition both inside and outside the basilica. Good sharpness and the fg boat adds nice warm cold colour contrasts. Tfs!

    Hi Daniel

    It's the same here. Stay safe! Brasov was one of my favourite cities in Romania. Maybe it's the home made brandy that everyone drinks in Romania that has kept the Covid 19 rates relatively low compared to Italy and Spain. A nip of 40% alcohol acts as a throat and mouth disinfectant. But like any drug it's best not to overdo it. I had a sore throat and flu in Alba Iulia in January 2017 and asked for a small shot of Scotch Whiskey from the bar for 2 nights in a row. But by the 3rd night, the sore throat was gone. Romanians seem to be genuinely considerate of each other overall and as not as 'touchy / feely' as Italians, who love to hug and kiss all their friends and relatives. So that partly explains the low rate of positive cases. Once again, stay safe. Skype people if need be.

    Hi Mesut,

    The steepest Greek theatre is reputed to be the one at Pergamon near Bergama north of Izmir. This one has an attentive canine visitor and a rough and sometimes tilted seating arrangement not suitable for high heels! Tfs!

    Witaj Lars!

    I hope the hoodoos were still standing for you. Many of them have been destroyed by fools pushing them over. The badlands look less inhospitable under a sunny sky. I found the museum interesting too. Tfs!

    I hope Spain is able to quickly contain the virus which has killed so many people around the world. Excellent sharpness and tight framing with a nice contrast in the balconies at left and right. Tfs!

    A colourful array of stacked beach chairs and beanbags. Good sharpness and this looks like Kuta Beach or Legian. The pink umbrellas at top left complete the scene. Tfs!

    Hello Malgo,

    A beautiful aerial shot of this verdant island with at least 4 beaches to choose from! Gili Island is nice but there are nicer islands in Europe and better snorkelling in the Red Sea. But Lombok was fabulous especially Kuta Beach and even the touristy Sengigi Beach. Maybe you can visit another time? Did you see any Komodo dragons? They are closely related to the goanna lizards in Australia and fossils of similar giant goannas have been found in Australia. Tfs!

    Hello Mariusz,

    An interesting geological feature of the pancake rocks in weathered layers. I am sure there are many places in the UK well worth a few days excursion. Cornwall, Isle of Lundy off Devon, Stonehenge, The Lakes District, Hadrian's Wall and many places in Scotland that look like a landscape photographer's dream come true. Croatia will still be there next year. Tfs!
