'Majestic' is indeed a word we can use to describe this hotel. The interior is likely to be correspondingly.
Interesting story about the clock that is ahead of time. We should also apply this system in Belgium. Not intended for the passengers. But for the clocks of the staff of the railway company. Trains are generally in delay here. At least if they run on a day without a strike ...
Best regards, Paul

Hallo, Wolfgang! Wow! Great! But what's about the darkness? I think, the cloudy and stormy sky is not the best charger of the solar panels. Has the ship a diesel? Anyway, it's more progressive than classic engine. LG Serghei

A wonderful setting for this monastery!
The vineyards in the foreground provide a pleasant sight and contrast strongly with the arid plain we see in the distance while the snowcapped peaks of the Ararat are a most impressive view.
A stunning landscape presented with excellent depth.
Best regards, Paul

Did this not remind you a little of Kings Canyon? What an impressive view, a stunning depth of field and wonderful chromatic rendering. The contrast of red rock and greenery is spectacular and you chose well with the landscape format and wide-angle. Excellent work, and yes, sometimes guided tours are good. They certainly have their place.

Non lo so se o la tua modella o i fiori sono i piu belli. Ma tutte le due insieme ha creato un capolavoro. Bellissima la struttura e senso di movimento. La resa cromatica e' stupenda, come questa meraviglia di Castelluccio.

Ciao dear Lars
Just like a French Impressionist's painting, this reflections is a feast for the eyes. Wonderful golden light, perfectly rendered reflections and a lovely hint of red tones to provide that great contrast. Excellent work, thanks for sharing.

Pozdrav dear Paja
Minus 15 degrees! Oh dear that is cold. I do not think I have ever witnessed cold like that. Your photo is excellent reportage, capturing the snow and the mist so well. The textures are delightful. excellent work, thanks for sharing, have a beautiful evening.

You know, if I hadn't seen that this was taken in China, I'd have believed you were in Ireland or Scotland. The intense green, the hand-hewn stone walls and the undulating hills immediately made me think you'd visited the Highlands. What a magnificent scene. The winding road seems to mirror the winding stream. The movement in the FG grass gives us a sense of a gentle breeze and the lack of humans gives a very real sense of isolation and tranquillity, so often a theme in your landscape photos. And such a juxtaposition with your bustling, hectic people photos. Excellent work as usual, thanks for your note, always informative and entertaining.

I hope you and your wife had a relaxing vacation. I was curious as to what this was when I saw the thumbnail. It is a delightful window and balcony scene, so characteristic of your country and also those of Italy and Greece. beautiful vivid colours and textures. You have done well to notice this beautiful scene and have photographed it admirably.
