A popular site, no doubt...and one that has been shared in picture form many times over. That being said, you've set yourself apart with this one...what a beauty!! The dark tones and soft touches of warm color really set a wonderful and mysterious mood. I can only assume the atmosphere here is incredible to begin with, and this result strikes quite a chord in my imagination.
A quiet stunner! All the best. Take it easy.
Mountain village... by adores (40960)

rom this angle, it only appears to be a partial window, not much of a view, huh? lol
I really like the rustic tones and textures of this shot, everything in contrast, but working so well together. And with the obstructed view, there's a desire to look closer in curiosity for more details.
A wonderfully minimal scene, but it carries a lot of pleasing characteristics. Enjoy the weekend ahead. Take good care.
Can you see a fisherman? by fotka (3945)
jcpix (13814) 2015-07-28 19:11
It took a moment to find the fisherman, but was a fun search as well. :)
What an wonderful display of layered color and natural beauty. The low lying clouds add a touch of mystery to this enticing scenery, and your well balanced composition has everything working in blissful harmony. Beautiful! Hope all is well. Take care.

The beauty and charm of this street holds it own in value and interest, but that incredible sunset really steals the show. :)
Actually, it acts as more of a compliment to the scene and enhances the ambiance perceived through this imagery. Very well captured, composed and presented! Hope all is well. Take care.
Get That Light! by macjake (61434)

Hey Mr. Mac!
You like to tempt fate, huh? Didn't you learn a lesson in Greece no too long ago?? :P
I get it man, I've put myself in many a strange and somewhat dangerous position to get the shot. It's kind of an adrenaline rush, right?
As I was reading your note, I felt that same kind of twinge....."Oh man, gotta' grab that fleeting moment!"
Well good sir, it paid off big time here! The light paints the entire scene with mood and clarity, it does appear to be a special opportunity. Nothing that would blow your mind away per se, but enough to grab your full attention to take in the inspiring beauty of this place.
Glad you made it out unscathed...but you just lessened your odds for the next one. lol Awesome shot amigo!
Take it easy.
Cheers from the desert,
9 YEARS WITH YOU by serp2000 (42060)

Wow, nine years...you're an old man! :) Hmmm, let me rephrase that...you're a veteran. Yeah, that sounds much better. lol
Congratulations on the benchmark, TE has been a great source to view your photos, and this is certainly right in line with that ideal. A beautiful and well known place here in the U.S. The vivid blue sky really makes the supporting colors and detail come alive, and as we can see from the people in this frame, it's a popular spot to photograph.
Glad you were able to experience this fine city and have a beautiful copy of it in picture form. Here's to another 9+ years of photos and friendship! :)
Take care my dear friend. Cheers,
Colourful umbrellas-IX by adores (40960)

I spend most of my time on Instagram these days, and have seen many pictures of these umbrellas recently. It's just as pleasing to see them here as well, and you've certainly defined the display with bright color and lively appeal. I like the idea to fill the frame, with a progression of size from top to bottom.
A simple enough subject, but when arranged and displayed in this fashion, well....you just can't help but smile. :) Hope all is going well. Always great to hear from you. Take care.
Meteor Crater by EstudioChispa (2144)

Well, would you look here...you made it to the crater! :)
Wish I could have joined you, it's a place I've passed on the "40" many a time during earlier work years, and now regret never having stopped!? Hindsight really is 20/20, huh? lol
To the unsuspecting eye this wouldn't appear anything grandiose, but we certainly know better...and I think you've done a smart job in framing, helping to understand its sheer scale.
Glad you were able to make the visit. Hope all is going well with the new life. Keep in touch. All the very best from up North.

Howdy Miss Malgo,
The title alone caught my attention, as my love for the color blue always wins! :) Not only that, but the Russian style of architecture is an eye catcher, especially nowadays as I've seen it first hand. :)
Perhaps not large in scale, but certainly just as beautiful as so many others...and you've given a pleasing path towards its entrance. The surrounding landscape appear equally enjoyable and would be a nice place to sit and relax. I must think however, you didn't stop for very long....go,go,go! lol Have a great week my dear friend. Take care.
Cheers from the desert,
LONELY PLAYER by serp2000 (42060)

Ahaha, I've witnessed this tyupe of scene many times in Las Vegas....where people actually lose money immediately on the gambling. :)
This is very interesting however to my eyes, although a familiar sight, the foreign text and advertising makes this intriguing. I like the sense of isoaltion from this lone person playing the machines, surrounded by sights, sounds and bright colors one can still find a little solitude.
Many details and sharp focus, this turned out very well. And because this is Japan, I think that trash bin may actually be a robot! lol Take care bud. All the best.
Cheers from the desert heat,
