    Looks as a late-afternoon picture, Daniel, yet a beautiful colors and fine sky reflection upon.
    The first thing noticed was the high water-level, seems as "full" banks there.
    Good DOF and clarity.

    I'd never guess this clock-set matter, Beverley, but it makes sense as the RR-station is just across.
    immaculate photo, well lit and reminds me the beautiful city I last visited in 08/1993.

    Bonjour Christiane,
    The boat gave excellent scale to appreciate the size of this artificial, but beautiful lake.
    The light was very favorable, enhanced the multi-colors of the surrounding mountains and vegetation.
    Superior outcome of a marvelous landscape photo.
    Au revoir,

    Kalimera Danos,
    The trail leading view from the boat uphill's the village built on top. Each of the white houses in superior contrast and clarity, and most imposing elements are the "breaks" of the cliff of the volcanic rocks.
    I saw the Caldera from the air passing above several times, last was 06/2012. Each flight from Israel to Italia or Spain goe's on this air-route.

    The shadows over the valley gave the lit slopes extra beauty, intensifies the beautiful green colors.
    That's the kind of summer landscape scene most pleasent to look at.

    Hallo, Wolfgang! Wow! Great! But what's about the darkness? I think, the cloudy and stormy sky is not the best charger of the solar panels. Has the ship a diesel? Anyway, it's more progressive than classic engine. LG Serghei

    Good morning Chris,
    I can recognize the village of Ein-Gedi on the western side of the Dead-Sea coast, a place that used to be a jewel in teh area. Now, when water level reached the lowest ever, the are is full of a natural phenomenon of big holes n the ground simply called "sinked-holes", see this article, interesting stuff.
    Fine picture from an opposite side to the view we are used to see.
    By the way, on a clear day you can see Jerusalem from a higher point there.
    Have a nice new day.

    Good morning Wolfgang,
    The wakes over the water surface gave a marvelous and calm texture on the scene. Combined view of both the solar catamaran off-center picture - and a fabulous view of the lake till far as moubtains far beyond.
    Despite mild light condition, a fine outcome.
    Have a nice new day,

    Did this not remind you a little of Kings Canyon? What an impressive view, a stunning depth of field and wonderful chromatic rendering. The contrast of red rock and greenery is spectacular and you chose well with the landscape format and wide-angle. Excellent work, and yes, sometimes guided tours are good. They certainly have their place.

    Caro Silvio

    Non lo so se o la tua modella o i fiori sono i piu belli. Ma tutte le due insieme ha creato un capolavoro. Bellissima la struttura e senso di movimento. La resa cromatica e' stupenda, come questa meraviglia di Castelluccio.

    Just like a French Impressionist's painting, this reflections is a feast for the eyes. Wonderful golden light, perfectly rendered reflections and a lovely hint of red tones to provide that great contrast. Excellent work, thanks for sharing.

    Minus 15 degrees! Oh dear that is cold. I do not think I have ever witnessed cold like that. Your photo is excellent reportage, capturing the snow and the mist so well. The textures are delightful. excellent work, thanks for sharing, have a beautiful evening.

    Dear Abmdsudi

    You know, if I hadn't seen that this was taken in China, I'd have believed you were in Ireland or Scotland. The intense green, the hand-hewn stone walls and the undulating hills immediately made me think you'd visited the Highlands. What a magnificent scene. The winding road seems to mirror the winding stream. The movement in the FG grass gives us a sense of a gentle breeze and the lack of humans gives a very real sense of isolation and tranquillity, so often a theme in your landscape photos. And such a juxtaposition with your bustling, hectic people photos. Excellent work as usual, thanks for your note, always informative and entertaining.

    Warmest wishes

    Querido Angel

    I hope you and your wife had a relaxing vacation. I was curious as to what this was when I saw the thumbnail. It is a delightful window and balcony scene, so characteristic of your country and also those of Italy and Greece. beautiful vivid colours and textures. You have done well to notice this beautiful scene and have photographed it admirably.

    Gee you get around: Iceland one day, Jersey the next. And now Norway. I look forward to seeing your photos from there. Will you see the Northern Lights or is it not the season for it? Anyway, this little cutie is lovely. You've made a very nice close up and she seems to be modelling for you, giving you her best selfie duck-face. Or should that be cow-face? Anyway, nice colours and textures. A delightful shot.

    Thanks for sharing, have a lovely evening

    What an unusual architecture. I love the blue and white ceramics, so reminiscent of those we see in Portugal. The background Blue Hour adds to the colour theme and the image is sharp and without noise. Excellent work.

    La prima volta che ho visto questa panorama era nella foto di Maurizio. Ogni volta che vederla, i miei pensieri sono gli stessi: che meraviglia. Hai ottenuto un grande bel POV, con ottima nitidezza e profondita' di campo. I colori acquamarini del mediterraneo sono la ciliegina sulla torta. Che paradise, che foto. Complimenti.

    Carissimo Giovanni

    When I initially saw this in thumbnail, I thought it was a photo of a painting. But upon enlarging it, it became evident what a work of art this is. Your post-processing here is exquisite. I've never understood layers, but the skill and subtlety of the light here really is impressive. The colours and definition are jaw-dropping. The image is of superb quality. There is only one Obsessive Compulsive gripe I have, and that is I would have cloned out the globs of chewing gum in the foreground. But that is nit-picking, I blame the hormones. This is a thoroughly magnificent photo, and one of the best portraits I've seen on TE in a long time. Congratulations.

    Un abbraccio
