    Ciao Silvio,
    back home again?
    This is a spectacular natural scenery.
    View from above from a great POV.
    I like very much the decorative sky which adds a lovely patter over this panoramic view.
    Fantastic well saturated colors.
    Excellent work,

    Ciao Luciano,
    this must be an interesting spectacle. I remember watching fishermen returning from the sea in Poland few years ago, I suppose in even more developed countries it must be even more interesting.
    Very nicely decorated boats indeed. Plus a colorful flag on top.
    This looks like a very interesting holiday destination indeed.
    Great reportage,

    Hi Ike,
    nice building indeed. You show it here in a very realistic way. Fences, street lamps, cables: it frames the structure all around. Rich vegetation hides substantial part of it.
    What I like is the presence of national flags, it is always a lovely local touch.
    Very well seen and captured,

    Bonjour Serge,
    this is so pretty! I like the red color of the lighthouse with similarly painted little house. The design is also quite unique. Lighthouses are often extraordinary but this one is even more original.
    Lovely spot, great presentation!

    Hi Saber,
    very impressive waterfall. You have seem to select a great spot.
    The exposition is great, I admire the final effect, I am always quite bad with photographing waterfalls, it is more difficult than it sounds.
    Great sharpness and quality, we can admire even the texture of the rocks.
    Excellent work!

    Hi John,
    lovely tram scene. I see you are visiting often not only Menorca but also Mallorca, and I have just seen a moment ago a photo of Bev from Ibiza...
    Balearics is area which I yet have to explore.
    I am glad there is so much to do without venturing to remote destinations.

    This is certainly not a typical view from Mallorca. Very original subject.
    The girl seem quite sad, may be her vacations came to an end?
    It is like me today: the Bank Holiday Weekend is over, I feel same way: tomorrow I have to return to work :(
    Lovely capture,

    Hi Lars,
    nice old architecture.
    I like the light with some subtle shadows adding lovely touch.
    You had a wonderful weather in Belgium.
    I suppose it is not a big trip for you to go to Belgium?
    I still don't have this country on my TE map although I have been there once.
    Flights to Brussels are cheap from here but I just have not enough holidays and money to pursue all my dream destinations :)
    Beautiful quality work,

    Hi Bev,
    I was surprised to see that you went to Ibiza since indeed it has this party destination reputation, but your note explains it :)
    I suppose many stereotypes are superficial and TrekEarth allows us to verify some of them :)
    Fantastic composition here! Very well spotted. So simple yet brilliant with lovely play of light and shadow. Palm tree silhouette adds an exotic touch while the lamp present both in the light and as a shadow provide further charming detail.
    Wonderful work and your reportage I suppose will be quite encouraging to visit this island, especially when other holiday destinations become for variety of reasons less popular :(

    Hi Chris,
    wow I am so glad to see it.
    When I visited Egypt a while ago I really wanted to stay there a bit longer and see the White Desert or Alexandria.
    This is a breathtaking view. I didn't even see many photos from this famous town.
    Brilliant composition with very interesting foreground and an impressive fortress in the centre. The sea is subtly touching the huge rocks in the FG, it looks fantastic! I like also the presence of the flag.
    Excellent work!!!

    very attractive lady, well spotted. She is posing very nicely whether you know her or not. She holds on tightly to her iPhone...
    The background is stunning too.

    Bonjour Christiane,
    you have so recently returned from the Wild West and straight to another exciting trip to Paris!
    This is definitely here one of the most beautiful spots in Paris. I like the extraordinary architecture of the basilica.
    Nice low perspective. The weather was magnificent and provided fantastic blue sky as a background and so vivid colors!
    Very original foreground too with the footballs growing in the field :)
    Excellent work!!

    It looks like you had a great time out there!

    Hi Craig,
    quite an extraordinary building indeed!
    Nice close up but I also appreciate the wider perspective in the workshop to better imagine the building as a whole.
    The weather seems to be a bit foggy but it added a lovely touch here.
    Great geometry, very well spotted!!!
    I really have to re-visit Chicago allowing more time for photo-walks!

    Hi Paul,
    amazing location of the village at such a steep hill. Some of the houses are standing supported by wooden pals entirely. I think I wouldn't feel very safe sleeping in such house :)
    But I guess sometimes people have no choice.
    Very interesting note, I will definitely use your advice if I ever get to this amazing region.
    Quite an extraordinary view, great reportage!

    Hi John,
    I always miss the bluebells season. I have seen so many wonderful photographs of them, including this one here.
    This is a great focus on the flowerbed here.
    Although they are quite common and I remember seeing them in Poland I don't remember seeing them ever in such abundance. May be I didn't know where to go?
    Beautiful natural scenery.
    Pleasant to look at -it works so relaxing!

    Excellent work!!

    Hi Abmdsudi,
    fantastic atmosphere of this capture. The reflection plays a major role here.
    People waking up in the morning to their daily duties are well presented.
    Nice composition with the major focus on the sky reflecting road.
    Great idea very well realized!

    Hi Gert,
    this looks like a lovely street scene.
    You have managed to get such vibrant colors in spite of quite a gray weather day. Except for the colorful jackets also the red tower surprises me with its color.
    Beautiful square with so many stylish buildings.
    Very well done!!

    Ciao Luciano,
    lovely scene -it looks like a frame from a movie.
    We see plenty of consecrated people like nuns or priests in their traditional clothes in Poland, but less so in Germany or UK. So I am not used to see them so often on the street. Here you captured them in a suitable setting as well.
    It looks quite peaceful and quiet.
    Very well spotted,
