    Hi Kari
    so what do we have here?
    you know what I think about when I see this? I think about how many bugs and flies there are! alot right? It must be aweful at some times of the year.

    Personally, i'm not one for such cottages out in the forest, but thats just me.

    as for the photo though, thats a different story. I've been enjoying this series as you show us very rural areas most people do not venture out into. another fine shot showcasing the landscape.
    cheers

    Hi Carlo
    how could I have possibly missed this one in your gallery?
    there are so many attractive features to point out, the colours of the buildings, the clouds, the blue sky, the lime green grass, the statue...its beautiful.
    perfect exposure all the way

    Hi Lisa
    as much as I like this man's style with his shoes and his casual stance, its on a sad occasion that we view this photo.
    a Proud shop keeper he is. well documented scene, culture and history wrapped up into one.
    thoughts and prayers are with Italy

    Hi Danos
    for me, this shot is all about the blue boat on the left.
    really like its strong angular lines and hot it almost has that 3D like effect. and even though its blue like the water, it still stands out well.
    fine post for its colors, exposure and boats

    Dear John,

    A serene scene, inviting to the guest. I would like to be seated in that small cafe watching the world go by. East Flanders must be very beautiful.

    Hello Ike,

    Isn't remarkable how good the optics of smartphones have become that you can make such picture. The colors and resolution are superb, the composition is function of the photographer, and just as good.

    Hello Abmdsudi,

    This is one of the most eye-catching photos I've seen recently on Trekearth. The dark interior of the teahouse illuminated only existing light is certainly the best way to go with such a scene. Along with a good note, this takes the prize.

    Warm regards,

    Merhaba Murat Bey,

    I like the nostalgic note that accompanies your photo. Given a choice of patisseries all over the world, I would go for an Istanbul pastahane any day. So you were there in late May, just three months ago.

    I like this busy composition of variegated colors and frames horizontal, vertical, oblique framing the Manhattan Skyline, and especially the Empire State Building.

    Hi John
    wow, I want to write you a note before this photo gets taken OFF by the mods! haha...i hope not!

    congrats on 10 years, and actually, congrats on writing such a fine note. I was smiling the entire time, well done.

    So that's you eh? thats awesome John, you look so casual just strolling through the field, looking all cool, you could be walking down any city street for all we know. In fact you're walking through an area most of us will never get to see - thats something worthy of feeling proud about.

    I have to admit, when I see your Greenland shots, I very much want to visit here. Do you know if its become a little touristy here now? of I wonder if its still got that rugged outback nature feel to it. This is such a sweet view as you're encased in mountains all around you. I like that your gaze is off to the side too.

    Must have been hard to spend this time here without being able to watch Family Guy! lol

    10 out of 10 John, Keep it going
    cheers

    Hi Malgo
    yes, I"m glad you mentioned it, I don't think I would have recognized the Castle if you didn't.

    as a cloud lover, this one suits the scene perfectly don't you think? it adds another horizontal layer to go along with the green line and the orange/yellow lines spread across the frame.

    all in all it makes for a very pleasing visual. something different for sure

    Hi Silvio
    such a rustic yet beautiful view.
    the history of these buildings must be incredible.
    love the old stone walls, they have so much character and they tell stories. love the rooftops too, and the small round clock. awesome post

    Your photograph is a powerful reminder of the catastrophic earthquake that took its toll. I understand over 290 people perished in the earthquake.

    Hi Jorge
    of yes, this brings back alot of memories!
    driving past these large trucks on the hwy with only an inch to spare on either side going 100 km\hr..yikes!

    I have to hand it to the locals though, they know how to dress up their trucks, its a cultural theme for sure. You would never see such things here in Canada.
    fun shot

    Hi Kasia
    how on earth did I miss this one in your gallery?
    glad I happened to stumble on it now.

    so you had a 10 hour layover, did you stress out time-wise when you were in the city, fearful of not getting back to the airport in time? Because once you leave the gate, you then have to re-check in and go through security ALL OVER AGAIN right? that would suck, but the benefit is you get to explore the city a bit.

    and looking at your WS photos, you certainly had the right idea to get creative and try some panning. Love the WS photo's of the engines, I never knew they were that large!

    the final result of this main post is kind of haunting, but in a good way. love the rainbow of colours and the streaking visual effect. awesome!
    cheers
