Me gusta mucho esta imagen de Andorra. La arquitectura de piedra es muy linda, y debe ser muy vieja, también. Con este cielo azul, y la montaña cubierta con árboles, es una escena muy bella. Felicidades en la ocasión de tu jubilación. :-)

I was looking at your four photos of this artwork, and I like this view the best. The layers of green and yellow on the bottom of the frame are lovely, and then those two giant horse heads appear. I like surreal scenes, and things that appear in unexpected places. The artwork itself is beautiful, too.

This is such a beautiful scene. It looks like a fairy tale. I really like the way you used the red and green plants as a partial frame. The small houses and winding road are charming, too. It's nice to see this more rural side of Russia.

That goat lady looks fierce! :-) I hope she didn't mind your camera or else YOU might have gotten scolded, too! Great rural scene, with the goat almost seeming to return home in shame. That lady likes bright colors; her hair and her outfit certainly stand out. :-)

I thought Oprah was going to be in this photo! LOL! I really like the chosen POV, with those colorful rides in the foreground. The high vantage point is great, and the photo is razor sharp even though you were teetering above the earth. :-) The skyline is impressive, and so is that yacht on the left side. Maybe Oprah owns that, too. :-)

It's great that you were able to visit Mongolia! This view is beautiful and seems so peaceful. I like that the young woman was facing away from you, and towards the picturesque hills in the distance. It's a lovely scene. :-)

Back to the past when the electric trains did not exist. The orange dressed person is a bonus. I would have cropped the white sky just above the trees, too eye catching and destroying the feeling.
enjoy your sunday

a researched framing including the fence, and we follow the snaking path to visit the small village before discovering the rainy atmosphere on the hill. Thanks to the buttercups, we have a nice contrast with the grey weather.

I completely agree with you, the blue robe is being replaced with sweatshirts and trousers. At least the guides should be a part of it. When its not about the photography one just needs to sit and absorb all the little pleasures of desert life. you want things to be in the right place, you want to see the blue turban..
How was your night at the tents, the oasis or did your guide find a high dune below which you had spent the night ?

Whenever i see a ride in venice waters i think of mu uncle who had an attack of asthma while on the boat, apparently the water triggered it. but hey, a nice way to kickstart the wedding celebrations.
Looks like traffic here, is honking allowed ? Somehow tourists aren't my cup of tea, hence i end up going to places during off season :)
Standing on the bridge could be a good way to relieve that stress.

hahaha conflicting stories, but hey...story telling is a part of moroccan culture ! Who know they might tell me that the australians left because the locals said that there were Djinns in the house, in the walls, in the water. Aren't they obsessed with the Djinns..
again you have waited for your subject, imperative. You have a lot patience Klaudio !
photography and patience go shoulder to shoulder.

Yes the ride from Fes to volubilis was great after all the desert sand in merzouga and hustle of the city. there was a distinct reservoir on the way and the green pastures with sheep grazing was quite a treat and the unavoidable sunflower field.
i think the colds contributed to the subtle patterns in light and dark, the green mosaic just becomes more appealing, not just another pretty countryside photo..
nice work from the bus :)

aaah this is a good one, with the sunlight pouring in, and the reflection, creates such an enigma, is the green moss ? or paint ? Wonder the acoustics must be incredible around here. takes me back to the basilica cisterns in istanbul..
i think the inclusion of the subject was imperative but most places in morocco i found it difficult to find people, places like theses, hence making some photos a bit flat, like the roman ruins in volubilis..

comment ça "assez agréable!" Belle palette de couleurs grâce aux maisons et leurs reflets ainsi que quelques annexes. J'aurais ôté du bas qui est uni et rompt le côté pictotialiste (voir le WS)
