    Bonjour Nicolas,

    This etherial photo should be called, "When lines disappear in the fog." It is one of the best images I've seen in Trekearth.

    Hello Ally,

    The wind has left comb marks on this expansive beach, and you've preserved them for posterity. Good eye, and good photographic skills.

    Hello Maciej ,

    As usual you share with us all a well composed shot and a succinct but informative note, in the best spirit of Trekearth. I had heard about the Roman Temple in Evora, and now have a chance to see its remains. The hiker on the side offers scale. I remember seeing a in faraway Ankara built in the 1st century AD an featuring very similar slender columns and Corinthian capitols. I imagine this one also dates to approximately the same period.

    Warm regards,

    Hi Ray,

    As the two swans serving as the focal point, I like this even better than the domed structure. Its reflections become the backdrop for the aviary creatures.

    Have a good weekend,

    Hello Serghei,

    For almost a week, TE has had some problems, and most of my critiques have been rejected. I will try a quick one to compliment you on this shot, a train crossing, which in the US lately has been in the news for accidents. When you visited Virginia, we went through one such crossing, and although it is well marked, it still somewhat scary. Are the electronic warnings functioning properly?

    Warm regards, Serghei, have a good weekend.

    Salut Didi,
    Une bien belle atmosphère captée avec cette lumière et la brume.
    Le contre-jour fonctionne à merveille avec le pont si bien mis en valeur. Les eaux de la Loire sont belles avec ces remous.

    Hello Paul,

    An exquisite sunset with a a trio gulls near the top, and two near the bottom adding atmosphere to the silhouette of the church. I had posted an early morning shot of the hillside, Sailing into Lisbon., that complements this beauty. I was surprised to find that it is now almost four years old, posted in 2011.

    Warm regards and have a good weekend,

    Merhaba sevgili Mesut,

    The scanned 12-year old Ektachrome slide has preserved its sharpness, and the season presented is most appropriate for our time. I too had a Nikon N90 (but not the N90x). Now I have a shelf in my home library with my old Nikons on display, Nikon F, Nikon 2020, Nikon N90... along unfortunate reminders of past technology, and all now museum artifacts.

    Warmest regards, Mesut, have a good weekend,

    Hello Aleksander,

    Certainly one of the most beautiful sunset shots of Elblag that I have seen. The sky seems to be on fire, as the cliché goes, but it is appropriate here.

    Hello Maciej ,

    The shimmering quality of the reflections in the water have an Impressionist effect, but with the added high resolution and sharpness. I have been to Lisbon many times, and Porto once, but have not seen Avero. There is an atmosphere of Venice here.

    Warm regards, and have a good weekend,

    Hello Erling,

    It is always a pleasure to see photos from you, especially from from Bergen. In my 4-5 visits to the beautiful Hanseatic City, I have never seen it under snow, and only once it was raining. (My visits have always come during the summer months). Your note is much appreciated, a little more knowledge to add to what I already have.

    Warm regards and have a good weekend,

    Dear John,

    I recognize many of the scenes on canals that you have shared with us. With each different light condition the mood changes, but it is always compelling. This is a gorgeous shot, befitting your talent as a photographer/artist.

    I too have failed to upload critiques lately, getting strange messages. I will save this note, just in case it does not go through.

    Have a wonderful weekend, my good friend,

    Hello Ann,

    You had a perfect vantage point to shoot this scene. The colors exhibit the vibrant colors of autumn, while the river displays the rich veins of marble. One day, we may be able to provide the sounds of such scenes although at this point, we can just imagine the roaring sounds of these rapids.

    Hello Ray,

    This is a stroll down memory lane for me. While at UCal-Berkeley in 1968-69, I spent many hours at this very site, watching my two little children, if not reading (I might have even been accused of too much of the latter while ignoring the former). Great reflections, evocative of a Impressionist painting. I see that you took the photo almost 22 years ago.

    Warm regards,

    This could be an official photo for Swiss Air, but I am sure you cannot put up official photos. The four panoramic photos stacked one above the other all invite careful scrutiny.

    I love this shot, especially since I know exactly where you took. The two cablecars are in color and the rest B&W, and that adds a lovely flavor. Just an exquisite piece of photographic art.
