    Wow, what an impressive capture!
    A shamefully underrated picture here.

    If you ever drop by again...

    What a bizarre ensemble of architecture. I'm surprised it wasn't on our Peleponnesus trip, it's certainly the kind of construction that would fascinate me.

    Great backdrop of sky and mountain too.

    Thanks for showing this unknown Peleponnessus gem, Vasilis.

    Cheers

    Hello Piotr

    Fantastic view with the familiar monastery and the legendary mountain. The vineyard (?) in the front adds an element of surprise. Really beautiful, defintely a place I'd love to visit some day.

    Thanks for sharing & congratulations

    Lovely, typical scenery of the old Tibetan parts of China. Great how the three lines are placed out: the road, the the river and the stone wall.

    Good idea to leave lots of room for the bricks in the bottom half of the frame, Daniel. Top bit is in the shade, but light is still OK there. Interesting picture, well spotted.

    Bonjour Claude

    Sad days, indeed, as politics are getting taken over by populists who seem to be getting away with almost everything. I can't possibly imagine anyone believing this kind of slogan, then again the news tells me many people do.

    Colourful picture for a black and white slogan.

    Now come on, Iceland!

    Lovely soft and poetic picture, Ruben, and very Chinese. The half of the bridge included on the left is really special. The reflections are superb.

    Hello Klaudio

    Great picture and great note. I don't think I'd have dared to take this picture. Praying in the west is a private thing, and I wouldn't have wanted to disturb the man in such an intimate moment.

    A surrealist referendum, a mind-boggling outcome, impossible to fathom just what the consequences will be in the long run. For Europe, in the long run, I hope it might be a blessing in disguise. But no one knows.

    Hello John

    Many cities call themselves "the Athens of this", "the Venice of that"...but I had never heard of an Edinburgh parthenon. It's great to read about it in your note.

    The picture is terrific too. Great pov with that tree sticking in and the position of the people on the monument, especially that one guy standing on the right, probably a teacher or guide. The view of the city in the bg below is another good feature. Excellent sharpness and textures on the monument as well.

    Benny

    PS: Aftr that surrealist referendum, I hope Scotland (just like Ireland) can now leave old England behind.
