in black and white one could argue it is a photo of a desert ;) Similar geometry :) What mainly differs is the fresh green color.
Beautiful scene well spotted. I like the trails of the tractor which add more interest and of course the farm buildings on the horizon with the pointy trees.

very well spotted! The light quite challenging although very atmospheric, full of mood. But the composition is fantastic without a doubt!
And great idea for a title as well, it is so accurate and funny.

this is so beautiful, I have seen your or Tosca's photos from this hike on FB already. It is truly jaw-dropping and with your usual high quality it works really impressive. I like the greenish color of the water and a combination of clarity with reflection -so unusual, so beautiful effect. Great sky as well on top of it. Excellent light. I can't believe it is so close to you and you first went to Iceland before going here! I am so jealous you have such beautiful spots around.

great time of the day. it seems they illuminate the town quite early and you have well used this opportunity here. Nice perspective showing two gates on two different levels it works quite surprising when one think about it.
I had a pleasure to visit this wonderful town long time ago. It seems to be one of the best preserved medieval towns in Europe. And the Christmas shop is open there all year round :)

very elegant interior and a beautiful presentation of it. I really have to try photographing interiors more often, this photo encourages to do so. Lovely atmosphere, plenty of colorful people enjoying the place. Nice asymmetrical composition.
Manchester's Iconic Bridge by Royaldevon (26449)

you have a really great eye to spot something like this. Excellent composition, very well used design of the bridge here.
As mentioned elsewhere I did not plan many trips this year but one of them was a weekend near Manchester. There was a show for my daughter over there and we also went to one of the best ZOOs in the world (Chester), plus Liverpool as you have already seen. I tell you the story because as well I had a chance for a quick walk along Salford Quays. The weather was quite challenging but I definitely have to show something from that walk. I remember of course well this bridge, it is quite extraordinary. I like the perfect symmetry here. I would love to come back there at the blue hour as well, may be someday.
Thanks for showing this original perspective,

this is a spectacular view! I like very much the pointy trees in the foreground adding asymmetric touch. Very pleasant natural colors. Incredible sharpness and clarity.
It is nice to hear that there are also some family friendly trails there. I started recently to worry that having 2 year old daughter I won't be able to hike for a very long time... Although I did hike recently a mountain in the UK but obviously they are more like hills.

very original presentation of this famous square. You were lucky to be there and witness the moment and you have perfectly used the opportunity. I bet you have much better photo of these girls than the person who intended to take it. Curious if they will ever see their own photo?
Excellent moment, great effect of repeated element of a jumping girl :)
