Right time, right place right photographer right weather. Everything falls into place in this superb Spring shot with wonderful yellow daffodils and red tulips gracing the fg. The bg Wilanow Palace looks familiar. Tfs!

Tragic news from Bergen today of 13 killed in a helicopter crash near Bergen returning from a North Sea oil platform. This isn't quite the view I had from the summit. But it is still excellent. I was lazy and took the funicular train. Tfs!

I wish Rio every success. I believe this will be the first time the Olympics has ever been held in South America. Making the event truly global. The ceremony of transferring the flame is well shown here. Tfs!

Good use of diminishing linear perspective with vanishing point. The rows of tulips provide lines converging towards the back and deep perspective. A nice warm cold color contrast too between the red flowers and the blue sky. Tfs!

Bonjour, mon ami Philippe,
The pale yellow orange facade of the manorhouse or chateau and its red roof contrast well with the blue sky to give a superb warm cold colour contrast. Good sharpness and well composed with plenty of breathing space right around. Tfs!

It looks like a watercolor painting. Perhaps a slightly faster shutter speed to avoid motion blur of the people? Good sharpness otherwise and the bridge makes a fine focal point. The yellow green ivy contrasts well with the grey blue sky. Tfs!
