Cette belle image donne une belle impression de piscine sans fin, ensuite le mur nous apparait et coupe symétriquement l'image en deux.

The image itself looks like a painting . The view of the village on the cliff is fantastic. The blue color really dominate the scene. That cute little cross on the right is a nice addition. Good sharp image with beautiful colors.
