Hi dear Mikio. Like a Japanese scroll painting. Of course it would have been more cheerful if the woman was walking and the umbrella was above her head and even better if the were a few more people with umbrellas, but in real life people do slip and fall. Lovely snow falling and settling on the power lines, roofs,branches of trees, creating a charming atmosphere. Great POV. Regards. Klaudio.

Hi Chris.It must have been an inspiring place for a pilgrimage in the old days before the senseless damage. i remember standing before the frescoes and looking at two young German women, their faces aghast at the damage. The guides were at pains to explain that the damage was random and not deliberate, even thought many saints, prophets and apostles had their eyes deliberately gouged and in some faces out of reach, I hazard to guess that rifles were used. It is I suppose lovely to see the belated appreciation of the frescoes by the current generation of Turks.An inspiring place to visit but sad also as it stands as testimony of what people can build inspired by religions and what they can destroy inspired by zealots. Great POV and excellent exposure. Regards. Klaudio.

Ciao Silvio. Something unusual from you as you left momentarily the world of cobblestones and brick. A great image to accompany the note as both connote ancient times and beliefs.(Even more so if it wasn't for the electrical power line stretching across the image.Wonderful silhouettes of various trees, delicate and beautiful. Ciao. Klaudio.

Hi Maryori.It has been a long time. Welcome back.I remember standing in the same spot taking a photo. I like the warm glow you have generated and the coppery and bronze colours with hints of blue. Regards. Klaudio.

Salut Elisabeth. Il y a des occasions quand je me demande pourqoi tu fais leas choses que tu fais. A quoi serve cette tete au fond? Apart from that,the rest of the image is pleasant, particularly the light that accentuates the architecture. Amicalement. Klaudio.
