Hello again Rosemary,
The contrast between the brightly coloured houses and the rocks are so striking! Its good that you mentioned the Geology of why the strata are near vertical here...we see the same in the Himalayas in India as the Asian plate continues to push the Eurasian plate northwards...
Your POV from below allows us to move up the slope and the polarised blue sky is quite fantastic as well...

Before I started to comment, I read with interest John's comment on this picture and also one by Craig..
Indeed comparing the two pictures is an example of how two artists can see the same place differently....the beauty and art of photography and photographic eye.
While vertical framing is quite a surprise, maybe because of the arc of the houses below hugging the frame, what it certainly adds is the FG...the flowers are beautiful and add a totally different dimension to this picture.
It does appear that you took this shot with the sun quite high in the horizon as I observe from the shadows below.....the exif says 9:30 morning though!
Wonderful shot Rosemary and thanks for sharing

Hola my friend Josep
Good to see your post again :-)
Lack of motivation? We all suffer from time to time.....that's why I post in different sites now...seeing good photographs makes me happy!
This is a fine picture from your gallery with the bridge the crowning glory of attention...the design is similar to some bridges I have seen in pictures from Eastern Europe...Mostar being the most famous!

Eid Mubarak my friend!
This is a picture so unlike yours....
Rich in details, the style of the spire is also a bit unique. The gold and red combination is superb and contrasts well with the blue sky. Good idea to present this as a closeup!

I am quite attracted buy the painted patterns on the house facades...The square looks lively and I read your note and the Wss with interest.
What I am curious about is the column with the statue above...the man standing in front of it is getting some attention...wonder why?
Good close crop for a well done picture!

Interesting creation with chairs and even more interesting compo with the 'red lady' framed by the red. Thanks to both your WSs...they help us understand the 'wider' picture. Lovely!

Indeed the deep dark red is quite unique to Scandinavia - I've seen pictures of most buildings notably Norway painted in this red...Thanks for your notes about the history of this usage of red colour!
Fine picture you show us here along with nice reflections, almost mirror like. The red contrasts well with the green and the blue.

The street is indeed narrow and converging well towards the depth. The light coloured pastel walls are soothing to the eye and meant to cool inside. Nice reflection of the houses on the stone...Given the narrowness of the street and the houses on either side, I believe the street would almost always be in shade except for a couple of hours in noon
PS : Where to this summer holidays?

This picture is almost a composition of two frames...I liked very much your composition with the stairs leading up for both. The tower is a strong focal point on the right as is the fine church against the deep blue sky!

I hope you did not sneeze then? We see a variety of spices especially what looks like chilly seeds in 3 containers...maybe I am wrong. I liked your light control and the hint of smile on her face and of course the similarity on the conical shapes...
PS : Where to in holiday season?

Your album has lots of fantastic pictures and it's difficult to choose...I loved this picture which stands out because of the pastel light. The familiar sight of San Giorgio Maggiore looks beautiful against the delightful sky.
A lovely shot indeed...Good work!

Hello dear Takero- san
Hope you are doing good!
This is a fine boat built in the fashion of the middle ages. The choppy waters in the FG signifies high wind. I like the fluttering flags and festoons which makes this picture very colourful. Fine work!
