Sunset is a fascinating time of the day. Here - on Las Islas Canarias where additional warm casts come from the "colonial" colours of the buildings, the evening tones seem t be double-intensive.
I got excited with the architecture I found here representing the mixture of traditional Spanish colonial style, flavoured with Moorish details.
Another question is wheather somebody controls the way how different styles are implemented - the line between "taste" and "a-little-bit-too-much" is somehow thin.
I'll be back home on Thursday but I have decided to post pictures and already.

Witaj, Jerzy! Bardzo kolorowo tu u Ciebie i świetliście. Światło bardzo ładne - miękkie i ciepłe. Domki prawie jak z kart... ciekawe miejsce, fajne wakacje!

Great perspective and mix of colours. I agree with your comment regarding taste, and exageration. At times it seems that this type of develomments try to sell a distilled version of tradition to foreigners so that they feel like they are in a real spanish style environment.
Anyways, very well captured.

Jerzy, how great to "see" you again with this vibrant Spanish view. I swear, and I've said it before, but there's no one who can make ordinary dwellings "come live" like you, man. You are in a class of one there. Love the golden hour tones and the compressed telefoto look. This is excellent work, my friend. Cheers, Francis

Maybe I'd apply autolevels to this. However, it is still very colorful, & makes very good use of the repetiton of geometric patterns & shapes, in the compo. Well done!

DZien Dobry Jerzy,
So you're by the sea and did not get the opportunity of a morning swim, preferring to sit in front of a compy ? That's addiction, mate !
Viewing that one, I was first thinking of wooden children play area, due to the many warm colors that make me think of wood. However I do not think it benefits too much to housing and I find the white ones more traditional !
How's the holiday ? N'joy your last days !

Nie mogles sie powsztrymac co Jurku?
Fajne zdjecie, naprwno miales super wakacje w takim fajnym miejscu. Troche dziwnie wygladaja te domki, bo te style raczej sie nie mieszaja tylko trzymaja sie razem grupkach. Ciekawy efekt.

What a colourful picture with all this houses, very difficult as tourist for finding you house in this puzzle. The sunset can always a beautiful image give, the low sun and the shadows its lovely for looking.

A beautiful and rhythmic arrangement of colours and shapes. It is like a well choreographed dance formation. Excellent POV and the colours are just stunning. Excellent shot!! Regards.

soleil donnant des couleurs trčs chaudes lors de son lever. Tu as trčs bien figé l'implantation des maisons dans des belles obliques colorées.
C'est trčs esthétique.

Hi Jerzy nice to see you during your holidays - a vibrant shot with very warm colours - great compo, tones and light -

Good pattern shot of the hillside architecture, Jerzy, well enhanced by the special light falling on the buildings. Great graphical study. I understand why you cropped it the way you did, I think it could even work without any sky at all. Enjoy the rest of your stay there.

The colours here are amazing J - such intensity and as you say this warm glow -the line is indeed thin as you say - a rwally nice and informative image and so many shapes to get lost in!!
take care Kev

Jerzy, this is a beautiful view of the well planed village. I am amazed to see the uniformly planed architecture and well arranged colorful painting in this village. You have an excellent PoV in taking this picture. Nice contrast and great details. Well done.

Heh... I've been on Tenerife just two weeks ago and I've seen quite the same picture:)
The only difference is the construction around them. We have an apartment just a bit higher Villas Canarias, so I can see them every morning.
