Very nice foreground, but I do not like the the road being cut out of the frame, and then it resuming. A continuous road with the foreground here would have been very good. Just an observation.

Made with high quality and wonderful composition.
A splendid mountain landscape picture.
Excellent light management and excellent clear picture.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

A fine landscape image, composed along classical lines. I like the proportions you have allocated to sky and landscape. Good saturated colours and excellent sharpness.

Superb golden tones in this image where the distance on the field gives a lot of deepness. Well saturated colors and good sharpness for the presentation of this nice landscape.

The wideness of the field is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the field and of the mountains. The good luminosity is giving warm colors. Have a nice day.

Cette photo donne envie de suivre la route à travers les champs brulés par le soleil vers ces très belles collines qui brillent sous un soleil très fort.

Bonjour, cher Chris,
Oh ! quelle image proposée à travers cette superbe composition.
L'aspect sauvage et désertique est saisissant. J'apprécie beaucoup l'ensemble des couleurs.
Une réussite, une fois de plus.

This is a good view with a fine atmosphere of late summer. My only slight objection is the red tone that I find too dominant.
mesutilgim (68036) 2013-01-26 14:32

TFS and have a nice weekend
GiovanniG (1619) 2013-01-26 21:41
Superb capture glowing in the warmth of the late afternoon. Reminds me of my home in Montana U.S.A. where grain fields are in valleys of the mountains. Well done the colors and detail are spot on.

This photo summer is welcome in the middle of winter. The left hand to the sky creates a beautiful image. I love the light and colors. I appreciate the clarity and depth. Bravo.
Have a nice day
Miguel82 (7882) 2013-01-27 6:41
Golden field, interesting note giving details about that place
Blue sky, trees less hills, a superb landscape
abmdsudi (26311) 2013-01-27 7:18
This shot is about perspective and depth, you have caught the sense of space and emptiness very well, with the road receding into the distance giving a very good impression of wild landscape and the intense heat of summer month. The composition is well given the circumstances with interesting backdrop. Fine photo works. Congrats.
Cricri (86535) 2013-01-28 5:58
Très jolies les couleurs de ce paysage, bonne lumière et le choix du format verticale, belle réalisation

Kielia (20477) 2013-01-28 7:49
it is a magical atmosphere that you have captured here and a great impression of the landscape including the golden fields under the summer sky. The light is fantastic! My compliments!

Ciao Chris, fascinating landscape with fantastic colors, splendid light and wonderful clarity, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Kalispera dear Chris
These colours are beautiful but they are not what I would normally associate with Greece. The golden tones look like something straight out of Africa! Beautiful composition, excellent sharpness and superb landscape details. What a magical place!
Thanks for sharing, have a lovely evening
thebest (3370) 2013-01-28 20:29
Very striking colours of the landscape I like the mountains with the soft blue cloudy white sky.
Excellent content clarity & sharpness with a nice chosen POV.
adramad (27556) 2013-01-30 14:44
Very interesting your note to situate the place, which otherwise is very beautiful.
A wonderful contrast of these fields the gold, with the conical hill we see behind them is remarkable, but the mountains in the background, they add beauty and a remarkable depth of field to set.
Have a good night.

it´s beautiful photo,that cheer us up in these cold,winter days(especially in Germany the weather do not pamper us).And the scene itself and the way you composed and framed it are magnificent.It´s pleasure to admire it with so lovely,vivid colors and with so superb contrast.Love the dominating golden tones here.Well done!

la Grecia è stupenda per i colori del mare, per i paesini incantati che si affacciano sulle sue acque, ma anche per questi paesaggi che incantano per la loro asprezza. Il tuo scatto è degno di lode perchè hai saputo cogliere una bella situazione nella quale il colore domina incontrastato, pur nella bellezza della composizione.
Il contrapporre i colori caldi della terra e dei suoi frutti con l'azzurro del cielo e l'asprezza delle montagne è riuscito perfettamente e la tua foto si piuò definire ben equilibrata.
Ottimi luminosità, contrasto e colore.
Buona anche la nota a corredo della foto.
Ciao e buon pomeriggio
Fis2 (73146) 2013-01-31 12:53
Good POV and composition.
Very impressive picture.
annjackman (13233) 2013-02-02 8:55
I was immediately attracted by the rich yellow colour and the clear blue sky. A lovely distant view showing how beautiful the area is. Excelent exposure and sharpness.
Kind Regards, Ann

Beautiful landscape well framed with this pov, nice light and result with these warl tones, tfs.
saxo042 (31802) 2013-02-05 14:49
This is a very attractive and pleasant landscape. The dominating blue sky above mountains and hills and the yellow colours of the dry fields. I also enjoy your interesting note!

Geai sou Chris
La magie des tons dorés combinée à ces espaces infinis est très invitante à visiter ce morceau de Lividi pour une cure de sérénité propice à faire oublier beaucoup de tracas!
Peu d'arbres, mais quelles montagnes pour charmer la vue!
I read on your homepage you're quite a camera collector!!
fritzi007 (7580) 2013-02-08 14:28
beautiful summer landscape and very good information!
maria-v1981 (10403) 2013-02-14 4:38
Μυρίζει καλοκαίρι η φωτογραφία σου. Το έντονο κίτρινο από τα στάχυα κάνει αντίθεση με το μπλε ουρανό. Τα λίγα σύννεφα προσπαθούν να εισβάλουν στο τοπίο. Ηρεμία και γαλήνη αυτά τα κύρια χαρακτηριστικά της εικόνας.
bayno (16241) 2013-02-16 15:05
Wonderful scenery Chris, amazing golden light and hot tones, I would have loweredthe times of shoting and closed aperture for more details and depth...
EstelleJ (921) 2013-03-03 17:56
I can almost feel the heat of Greek summer coming off this image...Maybe it's the yellow grass burnt by the sun, or the soft heat haze enveloping the mountains in the background..There is something extremely warm and inviting about this photo, especially on a winter day! :) Job well done!
eldancer1 (17106) 2013-03-05 9:21
Beautiful landscape! Reminds me so much of central California. Great lighting and sharp details. Wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.
ourania (12469) 2013-03-20 11:38
πολύ ενδιαφέρον ο τρόπος που περιγράφεις το έρημο καλοκαιρινό τοπίο ιδωμένο από τον χωματόδρομο που το διασχίζει. Ενδιαφέρον και ελκυστικός και ο τρόπος που ενίσχυσες τα χρώματα και τη βαριά ατμόσφαιρα λόγω της ζέστης. Η σύνθεσή σου έχει πολύ καλή ισορροπία και βάθος ενώ οι χρωματικές αντιθέσεις και η ένταση του φωτός δημιουργούν πολύ δυνατή εντύπωση. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
Να είσαι καλά, καλό βράδυ,
Didi (48938) 2013-03-26 7:55
Interesting golden foreground. Very nice summer ambiance.
The place need a panoramic view for the next time
jmdias (45830) 2013-04-08 17:37
beautiful rural landscape. the contrast between the golden grass and the blue sky is amazing. beautiful the shapes of the mountains too. TFS.
kato (6801) 2013-04-28 0:23
You're capturing well this landscape by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's impressive to see the plain with rich farmland and low mountains of backdrop. The whole is harmonized well by a good arrangement and beautiful color combination.
