Traditional timber framing is the method of creating structures using heavy squared-off and carefully fitted and joined timbers with joints secured by large wooden pegs (larger versions of the mortise and tenon joints in furniture). It is commonplace in wooden buildings from the 19th century and earlier. The method comes from making things out of logs and tree trunks without modern high tech saws to cut lumber from the starting material stock. Using axes, adzes and draw knives, hand powered auger drill bits (bit and brace), and laborious woodworking, artisans or farmers could gradually assemble a building capable of bearing heavy weight without excessive use of interior space given over to vertical support posts. Since this building method has been used for thousands of years in many parts of the world there are many styles of historic framing. These styles are often categorized by the type of foundation, walls, how and where the beams intersect, the use of curved timbers, and the roof framing details.

Hi Daniel. Similar to one of your earlier shots of window and flowering branch, but here there are more details of the house. Lovely colours and light. Nice homage to Spring. Regards. Klaudio.

un soggetto fotografico così invitante non potevi di certo lasciartelo scappare e alla particolarità dei colori dell'edificio ci hai messo di tuo una ripresa ricca di dettagli e caratterizzata da una composizione ed un taglio perfetti.
Una foto straordinaria.
Ciao e buona giornata

Quel beau contraste entre le vert et le bleu. Un ensemble des plus graphique avec une belle touche naturelle d'arbrisseau en fleurs.

I like the very straight and regular lines in this well composed picture. I also like very very strong and determined colours. The inclusion of the flowers create a kind of random pattern in a deviating colour. Very well seen and captured!

Another nicely, and tightly, composed photo with stunning colours and fine details. This was well observed and well cropped.

Du vert et du bleu qui contrastent bien avec la blancheur de ces fleurs printanières.

Hello Daniel - Beautiful punchy colours and rustic details form a super backdrop to the dainty spring blossoms.
What an attractive rural scene.

qui i colori sono molto decisi, il soggetto è diverso dal precedente proprio per questo e si fa notare molto bene.
Bel colpo d'occhio.

What can I say? Simple and very attractive composition! It could be good cover for a postcard, for example. Good colors management, perfect sharpness. Special thanks for this positive picture.
Greetings from Russia!

Another lovely image from that magical village. The colours are superb, the combination of saturated green and blue is really eye-catching. The trees in bloom add context and convey the atmosphere of spring in Romania.
