another beautiful piece of work here.
this has fairy-tale written all over it.
really like the way the trees and leaves cover the house, or should i say mansion?
but this place shouldn't have anything to hide :)
looking at how large the mansion is, its surprising how small and tiny the windows are!
another lovely presentation John, the lighting and colors are very attractive

great looking shot here my friend.
its easy to see why so many people have already liked it.
to get those colors out of the stained glass in the photo is A+ - and its harder to do than you think.
the grey looking color is such an effective backdrop too, a great contrast.
awesome indoor shot!

haha...yes, another spot that you and I visited nearly the same day :)
this was a wonderful place to visit wasn't it.
lots of photos to be taken up along that ceiling,
love the golds, the depth, and long perspectives.

I heard today that its suppose to reach 30 Degres in St. John's today!
I know this isn't St. John's but thats a high temp for Newfoundland!!
the scene you have captured here is more indicative of the climate...somehat overcast and dreary.
a fine overview of Cornerbrook.
If we look closely, we can see that the homes don't have any fenced yards.

in a way this is very cute, but also its very sad that the boys HAVE to work like this to earn money. Young boys and girls should be out there joking around and having fun.
but this is a true daily life scene, its real life.
great post for TE

this is for sure one of those photos where people really do add to the scene and make it that much better.
Without this family present, it just wouldn't be the same.
a sweet shot taken without them knowing it.

great to see you back again, nice to see new pics in your gallery.
I was recently in Greece, we wanted to visit here but just didn't have the time :(
lovely photo from above, i feel as if I'm right there on the cliff edge with you - there's that sense of drama with the cliff.
the colors of blue are amazing arent' they!

this is a beautiful photo from Rome.
we don't get to see that color of orange on our architecture here in Canada, so its a real treat.
love the way you composed this as the road goes uphill, and with the fountain in the fg.
lovely light and exposure.
a very attractice shot all around

I have really enjoyed viewing your last sets of photos from the UK.
the amount of green here is pretty amazing isn't it.
quite vibrant looking too.
keep these coming, they really stand out well in your gallery and on the gallery page.

a freaky type of image.
i love seeing these, its too bad we don't see more of them on TE.
the contrasting light and dark shades are just excellent, and this is certainly the type of photo where having that human presence works so well.
