What a great POV you got here. As much as I love stone circles, I find that it's very difficult to do them true justice in finding the right POV, and demonstrating their size and shape. Here, it looks like you are either 8 foot tall or standing on a hill. Whatever, you've really shown their shape and uniqueness beautifully. So you didn't break in? That's very law abiding of you! I ended up cutting my leg open climbing the wrought iron fence of Rathmullan Priory, and am still looking over my shoulder for the local Fuzz to come and arrest me. Love the colours, the contrasts and the impressive definition of these amazing stones. Your note is superb, as usual. Seriously, why don't you do a photo book? I'd buy it in a heartbeat. Well, thanks for sharing, looks a little chilly for goatskins and antlers...maybe lederhosen, I dunno?
Glad to hear you've returned safe n sound from Germeny, even if sans lederhosen. I look forward to your skyscraper shots.
Greetings from post-cyclone Far North Queensland

I'm absolutely revelling in that magical golden light. The sparse trees, powdery blues and glassy reflections run a close second. Followed closely again by the impressive perspective. We dont often see water shots from your gallery, so this series is one to savour. Happy Easter too!

A beautiful and lesser-known angle of one of my favourite Sydney beaches. Can't say the same for the rough head in your Workshop, but thanks for the kind note. I love how the long shadows play across the sand. The colour is great and you evened out the light and shade really cleverly. Nice work, have a Happy Easter!

My mamma would say it's the aliens! What a great note, something she would love to read. And a fantastic photo to accompany it. This mound is like the Mount in Jerusalem, but made by Mother Nature. Stunning golden light and those textures blow me away. What a great contribution to TE this is.
Happy Easter and I hope the Bunny comes good for you
PS: I'm off to the Great Barrier Reef soon, before our Government completely destroys it. See you later :)

I hope you're not working too hard on your nightshift and that the Easter Bunny brings you and T some nice chokkies. This little gal is full of personality, I love how she's striking a pose, doing her best Blue Steel. And the way the mum happily looks on is very sweet too. Excellent double portrait, great street photography. Have a great Easter, see you in a week or so :)

How things have changed in West Cork. Many years ago, I went out with a lovely lad from this area and the Chinese cuisine was such that you could still order a steak, egg and chips in the restaurant. So I'm delighted to hear how delicious the food is now. I like the bright orange tones, the graphism of Linda's stars and the perspective created by the converging lines of the road and building line. Excellent work, thanks for sharing.
Have a very Happy Easter!

Gidday dear Noel
Ahhh so this is where you've absconded to: the land of Lederhosen and Sheiser porn! And for those reasons, one of my favourite countries in the world ;) Anyway, a very nice err...construction here. No wonder it caught your eye. Great choice the B&W and the excellent graphism is helped along by a very dramatic and dynamic sky. Well done, and I wish you a happy time in Deutschland and a safe trip back to the Soggy Green Rock.

Salut cher Serge
The excellent low POV has really accentuated the superb perspective and bokeh effect. I like the slight distortion of the buildings, the way they lean in is very artistic. You did well with the sky, particularly as the light was doing you no favours. Excellent shot, have a happy Easter.

Wow, this is truly beautiful and so remarkable. I love the light and of course those incandescent blue tones. Everything is perfectly regulated, sharp and so atmospheric. Thanks for sharing, have a very Happy Easter.
