    Howdy Malgo,

    The Palmeral de las Sorpresas pergola is very attractive and the longest I have ever seen. And the curving design is beautiful instead of the typical rectangular.
    Would enjoy strolling here.

    Thanks for sharing

    Howdy John,

    An impressive multi storied gothic mansion with numerous conical towers dominating, and viewed over the dense tree tops.
    I would think the Blair Drummond House would make for a fine hotel and a bonus with being next to the Safari Park?

    thanks for sharing,

    Another unique pigeonnier, this one an impressive rock and concrete construction, with impressive tower with multiple openings. Its elevation high off the ground, should help with avoiding animal predators.

    How our world has changed from canals utilized to wage wars to idyllic waterways for boaters and nearby bicyclists. This view shows the tranquil Merendree area with peaceful landscaping.

    Well done,

    Interesting 'minimalist' view of the Leros waterway with the lonely dog on the dock. The monochrome approach focuses on the water's wave textures.

    Interesting balcony with a mob of potted plants making for a jungle, and a few wind chimes for music. Good job to make do with a small space creating this nature refuge.

    Thanks for sharing,

    Interesting view in the fading light of the Spoleto Mercato, with the dominating Gothic/Romanesque stone church dominating with its temple like top.
    Looks like a fine place to stroll, and perhaps enjoy a meal?

    As you know, I'm a fan of rocks, so really appreciate their inclusion. In fact the white colours contrast so nicely with the vivid multi-colours of the township. Yes, it's difficult to get an original shot of this place, but I think you tried hard and succeeded. PS: those rocks are NOT a good place for boys with bad knees. I've slid down enough of these babies to know that :)

    Have a great weekend, I hear you've been doing the nightshift, so hope this weekend will be a restful one for you

    Lisa

    PS: that place with the sand dunes has a shipwreck. You can only get to it by camel or dune buggy or walk 30 kilometres down the beach. At sunset it's so cool! I promise not to upload photos of it until you and Tosca land in Sydney and I will personally take you there

    Hi John
    another beautiful piece of work here.
    this has fairy-tale written all over it.

    really like the way the trees and leaves cover the house, or should i say mansion?

    but this place shouldn't have anything to hide :)

    looking at how large the mansion is, its surprising how small and tiny the windows are!

    another lovely presentation John, the lighting and colors are very attractive
    cheers

    Hi Noel
    great looking shot here my friend.
    its easy to see why so many people have already liked it.

    to get those colors out of the stained glass in the photo is A+ - and its harder to do than you think.

    the grey looking color is such an effective backdrop too, a great contrast.

    awesome indoor shot!

    haha...yes, another spot that you and I visited nearly the same day :)

    this was a wonderful place to visit wasn't it.
    lots of photos to be taken up along that ceiling,
    love the golds, the depth, and long perspectives.
    nice capture.

    Hi Peirre
    I heard today that its suppose to reach 30 Degres in St. John's today!

    I know this isn't St. John's but thats a high temp for Newfoundland!!

    the scene you have captured here is more indicative of the climate...somehat overcast and dreary.

    a fine overview of Cornerbrook.
    If we look closely, we can see that the homes don't have any fenced yards.

    interesting pic

    Hi Mesut
    in a way this is very cute, but also its very sad that the boys HAVE to work like this to earn money. Young boys and girls should be out there joking around and having fun.

    but this is a true daily life scene, its real life.
    great post for TE

    Hi Silvio
    this is for sure one of those photos where people really do add to the scene and make it that much better.
    Without this family present, it just wouldn't be the same.

    a sweet shot taken without them knowing it.

    Hi Maria
    great to see you back again, nice to see new pics in your gallery.

    I was recently in Greece, we wanted to visit here but just didn't have the time :(

    lovely photo from above, i feel as if I'm right there on the cliff edge with you - there's that sense of drama with the cliff.

    the colors of blue are amazing arent' they!
    nice shot

    Hi Carlo
    this is a beautiful photo from Rome.
    we don't get to see that color of orange on our architecture here in Canada, so its a real treat.

    love the way you composed this as the road goes uphill, and with the fountain in the fg.
    lovely light and exposure.

    a very attractice shot all around

    I have really enjoyed viewing your last sets of photos from the UK.

    the amount of green here is pretty amazing isn't it.
    quite vibrant looking too.

    keep these coming, they really stand out well in your gallery and on the gallery page.

    Hi Gigi
    a freaky type of image.
    i love seeing these, its too bad we don't see more of them on TE.

    the contrasting light and dark shades are just excellent, and this is certainly the type of photo where having that human presence works so well.

    great post!
