This is a remarkable photo of deep-freeze. I visited Asahi Kawa and felt the cold in the mountains, but this is a blizzard condition. I like the pink glow in the sky.
Warm regards (pun intended). Your email address firstname.lastname@example.org did not work for me. The email I sent came back, "Your message wasn't delivered to email@example.com because the address couldn't be found."

I didn't know about the existence of this tower until I saw it in your gallery. It is a clever way, with a horizontal pole and angled flags. Incidentally, Lord Nelson's flagship the HMS Victory is in drydock in Portsmouth. During the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805, he was mortally wounded. To get his remains back to England, they "pickled" him in a barrel of brandy.

It's a fabulous scene in B&W. It could have appeared in a National Geographic Magazine from the 1920's-1940s. The British especially developed B&W Ilford film that displayed this type of sharpness. The lack of crowds makes it especially eye-pleasing. I'll send you an email.

Bonjour mon ami, Philippe,
This small train is actually much large than some I've seen on Greek Islands that take visitors on short rides through the city. This one clearly has a great deal more horsepower, and go into the countryside. A perfect vantage point to shoot the photo.

I am fascinated by the variation in church architecture from country to country, even differences between Portuguese and Spanish churches, although both Catholic. You chose a symmetric perspective, and achieved very good depth-of-field. I like the warm colors of the wood floor, and cool colors of the stone... and of course the very good note.
