They appear like stamped out figures, perfectly equidistant, almost synchronized. It reminds me of a mural showing ancient Egyptian painters of priests or workers. This is a genuinely eye catching photo.

Hello Mr. B,
What a truly magnificent high relief, and photographed to perfection. I like the presence of the young woman dressed in bight red and yellow adding color highlight to an otherwise gray stone (any idea what kind of stone?).
In the note, however, there is a small suggestion. You write, "Spanning a period of about 600 years between the 6th and 10th century AD..." that should be "400-500 years."
The light conditions were ideal.

Ciao caro Silvio,
I have not been very active on TE lately, but I have missed especially seeing your images of Umbria. I did not know about Castel San Felice, like a massive lego set. its parts fitting together so tightly.
If you don't mind I am doing a Workshop to see if the image stands out a little more dramatically.
Warm regards, and have a good weekend.

Hello Maciej ,
As usual you share with us all a well composed shot and a succinct but informative note, in the best spirit of Trekearth. I had heard about the Roman Temple in Evora, and now have a chance to see its remains. The hiker on the side offers scale. I remember seeing a in faraway Ankara built in the 1st century AD an featuring very similar slender columns and Corinthian capitols. I imagine this one also dates to approximately the same period.

For almost a week, TE has had some problems, and most of my critiques have been rejected. I will try a quick one to compliment you on this shot, a train crossing, which in the US lately has been in the news for accidents. When you visited Virginia, we went through one such crossing, and although it is well marked, it still somewhat scary. Are the electronic warnings functioning properly?
Warm regards, Serghei, have a good weekend.
At dusk in Porto by PaulVDV (22753)

An exquisite sunset with a a trio gulls near the top, and two near the bottom adding atmosphere to the silhouette of the church. I had posted an early morning shot of the hillside, Sailing into Lisbon., that complements this beauty. I was surprised to find that it is now almost four years old, posted in 2011.
Warm regards and have a good weekend,
