    Bonjour Alain,

    Ces pays là il faudrait y être à toutes les saisons! Nous y étions l'an dernier au printemps mais il faudra qu'on y retourne à l'automne, et puis l'hiver...

    Merci pour cette image "pleine de solitude" et de cette atmosphère magique qui annonce le froid. Les bleus glacials ne sont réchauffés que par la petite touche orangée, merveilleux!

    Celle-ci, en couleur pourtant, me parle aussi... Même si la lumière est crue et les ombres peu présentes, l'image est tellement nette et "crispy"que tous les détails apparaissent...
    Très bien fait!

    Hello Fotka,

    Wel... It could have been Scotland! Such a moody atmosphere thank to the dark moutains, the foggy clouds and the brown & yellow grass.

    I like this photo because it makes me feel on the high counties of Great-Britain or Scandinavia again... and I love it!

    Thank youy & warmest regards - Viviane

    Bonjour Gilles,

    Cette photo a fait "tilt!" - Regardez celle-ci et puis on a choisi le N&B...

    Vous avez raison, photographier le jeu des ombres et lumières était inévitable... :)

    PS: Je viens juste de voir que vous aviez trouvé ma photo avant que je ne vois la vôtre... Oups! :)

    Bonsoir Richard,

    Such an atmospheric picture, I was wondering if the shadow was created by the low sun or a bright moon...
    Thank you for your photos, it makes us even more impatient to be there.

    Bonjour Chantal et Bienvenue sur TrekEarth!

    Lorsque vous postez une nouvelle photo vous devez remplir correctement la case "ville" c.-à-d. que vous devez inscrire Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer et non Stes Maries ceci pour éviter les confusions et simplifier les recherches...

    Merci de bien vouloir corriger l'erreur.

    Hi Edward,

    I liked your two latest photos with the "quiz" aspect, I would like to see more of those...
    Very well done and informative!

    Don't you think It would be a nice idea to ask TE members to participle to such a kind of challenging quiz? ;)

    Bonjour Richard,

    I don't think Iulian has ever been there... I don't remember such Swedish landscapes as we we never went that high north but I remember Norwegian and Scottish highland looking precisely like here. Foggy, misty, magical moody feeling... Yes, I can imagine very well that atmosphere. And I think you succeeded very well in translating it.

    Thank you for responding to my previous critique, we would be very honoured to meet you if it is possible. I'll send a message about our planning.

    Marine,
    Je pars en Inde en janvier. Je penserai évidemment beaucoup à toi et t'enverrai toute la force du peuple du Rajasthan, en essayant de faire des photos aussi belles que les tiennes !
    Bonne chance à toi et je prie pour que cette pétition aboutisse..

    Bonjour Peter,

    I was looking at the photos concerning Lappland as we plan a travel through Sweden and going to Norway via Kiruna and Narvik next May 2015...
    Your photo shows that the landscape there are just like I imagined but... We will have more day than night at the time I guess... :)

    After a while looking at this picture I knew I remembered having seen the same before and I am afraid I must recognize my guild being the one who deactivated - not censured- your previous photo because of an elaborate frame. I precisely remember it looked like a sandy structured frame with not straight lines and not according the TOS rule about frames:

    Frames must be plain and straight edged (simple drop shadow is allowed)
    Cannot contain gradients, textures, blurring or beveling, but may contain the photo's title and/or the member's name.


    Again, I am very sorry you lost two photos but I couldn't do otherwise...

    Welcome on TE Richard!

    Thank you for such a lovely shot. It is really a great composition, it looks like the fox stood on the very right place at the very best moment and... Turned his eyes to you... Wonderful!

    We are going to travel there, not far from your place, next May 2015, I can't wait to see the nature in that part of Sweden.

    Great management of colours and light and nice low POV.

    Bonjour Serge,

    Il y a qqchose de bizarre dans l'orthographe des noms... On écrit Chenonceau - sans X - pour le nom du château mais le nom du village est Chenonceaux - avec X
    Merci de corriger... :)

    Trouvé sur le Net:

    La différence d'orthographe s'expliquerait, selon des sources à confirmer, par une dame Dupin qui, étant propriétaire du château au moment de la Révolution française aurait voulu, par cette suppression du « x » final, marquer sa différence. Depuis lors, le château est majoritairement orthographié sans le « x » final, à la différence de la commune, qui porte invariablement cette lettre finale.

    Bien amicalement - Viviane

    Edit 09-11-2014: J 'ai changé le nom du village et ajouté le X

    Nicely shot, Burak. The way the dark interior frames the opening for the train makes the train extra special. Well done!

    Lovely photo in its simplicity, Peter. The smooth water and colors really set off those tree roots. An effective addition is the reflection of trees at the top that helps to frame your work in a nice way.

    Another fine photo, Nevyan. The tree is perfectly placed to invite the eye to look at the whole scene. I also like the square format! You might experiment with the colors under and around the clouds. You probably captured them accurately, but they look just a tiny bit muddy to me. Super work!

    Beautiful symmetry and darker tones, Chatelier. The point of view is also outstanding. Nice post processing on the sky, too!
