    Hej Gert

    That's another great picture worthy of a second life here. You must have been travelling by train in China roundabout the same time as Paul Theroux who then wrote his famous book about it. Maybe you met?

    Train travel has undergone huge modernizations in China, both trains and tracks (and bridges, and tunnels, and more bridges, and more tunnels...) but it is still a wonderful way to travel. That is to say: we still like it a lot. And my guess is that this Guizhou landscape hasn't changed much from when you passed by.

    Thanks for sharing this kind of shot here.

    Long may you run!

    Ciao Lisa

    The rocks in the fg do seem to other-worldly. I have never seen a dinosaur's back, but they do remind me of crocodile shoes.

    Mooi standpunt met volle diepte, en ook goed getimed zodat er net een trein aankomt in de verte. Knappe verdeling van het frame.

    So many great musicians have died recently, yet I can't find them in this ceiling ensemble.

    Unashamedly barok.

    Warm light and a very Italian scene.

    Wow, it looks cold. A wonderful scene with a great build-up of layers. The mountains in the back seem to belong to another world.

    I assume Mt Konka is the same as Gongga Shan? I once had the pleasure of seeing it peak out above the clouds too. Terribly impressive.

    The hand gesture, fingertips touching, makes a pivot for the textures and shapes to turn on. And I love the deep red of the singer's headwear.

    Sterk gepolarizeerde zomerkleuren met mooie donkerblauwe kleur op het water. Het stukje van de railing binnen het frame vind ik ook geslaagd.

    En nu ga ik terug naar buiten want het is zomer...

    Sizzling hot colours with lots of yellow hues. Great sky and the castle and building in the distance top it all off. Great shot, if you ask me.

    Congratulations, John, and what a fine picture to celebrate it. Great scan quality, I particularly like the clarity of the grasslands vs the threatening sky above it. And the man in between just looks very cool. A 1970 kind of cool, which somehow is just much more cool than this year's model.

    Cheers
