This is Chemrey Gompa or monastery and not Tak Thok...Takthok is hewn on the rock, but is not far from Chemrey (10-11 Km). The roofs and walls of the monastery are made up of rock only and that is why it (Thak Thok) got this name.

Nice picture of Chemrey here

My sister is planning Cinque Terre this summer & am I envious of her!
Seeing your picture my pangs grow...amazing high POV looking at this small town with colourful facades, which seem to be common to all the 5 villages...
Lovely light & view!
Have a great Sunday!

Excellent shot...the exposure is perfect! The Hotel building tilts in a interesting manner obviously because of the soft ground & gradual erosion by the stream. A glimpse of the late blue hour sky in the far BG ads a lot to the picture

What a view from a high POV!...
Hardly a post card view for me, as I am seeing this view for the first time. The tiled houses, almost of the same height create quite an interest. On the left we see a building with an enslosure/courtyard witha small tower as well!

Konya...one of the places we could not visit though we wanted to...
Nice picture of the Museum, with the famous and charateristic green spire, which makes this building stand out...Liked the flower bed in the FG.
Do they allow photography during the Dervish performance?

I like this low POV with the sand ripples leading our eyes to the boats. I am not sure whether the steps in the FG corner (of what?) adds to the composition and also there's a blur in the bottom part of the frame...
Otherwise a nice composition and picture

Good work on the processing, highlighting the structure on the calcite, like a mesh. The turquoise blue water is beautiful...in the BG we have the calcite terraces forming cascades,...fine depth and excellent work!
Have a good Sunday

You're travelling I see...hows work and life?
Light condition & contrast is very difficult to handle as see. The interiors if the cave have been well shown...like the tonality there on the walls and on the ground with the tourists. The part where the strong sun comes in is blown out, but I doubt anything else could be done in such a strong contrast.

The horizon is beautiful...we seem to have a cloud fence bathed in gold..that's excellent! What I also like is how you composed with the two boats creating a fine lead-in, and the reflection of the sky in the water. The man appears lonely out there..Fine work!

Sabaidie again Way
Another stunning shot! The pastel light creates an ethereal scene where the giant peaks dwarf the landscape and the small red house seems to epitomize how small everything else is...

Its a shame that I have not visited your gallery for such a long time!
What a delightful scenery you present here as the distant peaks are enriched by the golden light. The stream in the FG is a good lead-in. Fine exposure contrast well handled...
Hope you are doing good!
Have a good WE

A beautiful town, which I have the pleasure of getting to know thanks to your wonderful picture. The spires and towers vie for attention. The clarity of the scene is superb as we have a look at the town from your high POV

Salam dear Didi
Interesting and to be quite an unqiue way of displaying these spices...there are some I know, some I have never even heard of...but have to say that they create a good impression in colourscape

What a visual traet to have the sea of sunflowers, swaying in the breeze with their bright yellow petals radiating warmth in the air! A good crop of these flowers, which almost seem luminescenet thanks to the light!

I have seen pictures of this town from a distant POV...impressive door and I can only imagine the weight of the wood. The timing of the shot is good as the cysclist passes by. Another interesting shot from a not so seen place!
