Hi John,This is not a photo, it is a pure poetry.Magnific capture of the typical Scottish atmosphere, as if made for a touristic brochure; magical light, spectacular reflexes, warm colors, peace and silence .... absolutely flawless.Have a good night and thanks,Luciano

beautiful,evocative and very atmospheric composition!
I find the subject really great-just a couple with the dog on their daily walk and silhouettes of the trees against lovely sky-sounds simple,but looks magnificent!

You have written a very interesting note and this is a lovely photograph to accompany it.
The boy - soon to be a man - looks so proud and resplendent in his bright white garments. I am sure he feels like a young prince as well as looking like one. And you have caught him perfectly as he proudly adjusts his headress as he walks through this magnificent doorway.
The light on the young man, his clothing and the doorway itself is gorgeous and I love the dappled light on the ground, presumably from the shadows of an overhanging tree. The colours are sublime, your composition excellent and the details and sharpness superb.

Ciao cara Lisa,
WOW! This is a stunner!! And I can quite understand how anyone would love to spend the rest of their days in this gorgeous place!
You have made the very most of the bright warm sunlight as it preferentially lights up the faces of these magnificent buildings as they climb up the mountainside, making them stand out beautifully against the much darker rocks and vegetation. Even the little red, white and blue sunshades on the beach are lit up as if by magic!
An excellent composition, the shoreline leading the eye nicely across the frame, gorgeous light and vibrant colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.

good to see you posting another photo!
its pretty darn easy to see why you'd want to live here, and easy to understand why i'd want to travel here.
thats some pretty sweet golden light! what the heck, where did all that sun come from!??
really cool to see how the buildings are built straight into and around the cliffs, and the tiny arch/tunnel on the far left.
this photo was taken less than 1 year ago, easy to understand your sickness :)
see you around

those are the famous Lilly Pads we see in Thailand? they look much smaller than other's i've seen.
I have to say, my favorite part of the photo is that long wooden deck, love the grains and colors of it.
the ambiance is pretty sweet too. Hard to resist the band of yellow/gold in the middle and the overall warmth despite some of the cooler colors.
see you around

always interested in seeing your photos from China, really enjoying these in your gallery.
this is a fantastic display of light, and shows just how important it is to capture it - stunning views!
the trees actually look like they were brushed on by a paintbrush :)
very sweet shot!
macjake (48363) 2014-03-11 12:53
couldn't help myself from looking at this one.
I love city views, and this one is pretty damn good!
excellent time of day, the light is soft yet also warm.
the details on the Cathedral is splendid! Cool to see that it's missing some of its roof tiles too.
the final execution is spot on.
macjake (48363) 2014-03-11 12:47
Its too bad this photo hasn't gained more popularity :)
I guess I enjoy it because its the type of scene that I enjoy capturing myself.
these boats, large or small have alot of texture to them especially if they have rust.
and you'll often find bright vivid colors that we don't see in architecture...you have that too.
macjake (48363) 2014-03-11 12:45
this is one of those places where I can see myself walking around during the day and just enjoying the calm and tranquility - thats what I see here.
the mountains and rolling green hills make for such a beautiful view, combined with the white colored town make is postcard perfect.
nice shot indeed
macjake (48363) 2014-03-11 12:41
its very easy for me to enjoy this photo, as a dog lover I can totally relate to this daily life scene.
the blue colors in the sky are beautiful, especially how the range from blue to white, and of course the tall tree's cover a large portion of the frame - very elegant.
macjake (48363) 2014-03-11 12:37
I'll never get tired of viewing these scenes you continue to show us from Italy. All are so tranquil and picturesque.
great to see some bright yellow colors in this one, combined with the grey brooding skies.

Salut Patrick,vraiment difficile commenter une image si belle,quelle perspective imposante qui donne nous l'exacte idee' de la difficile rue qui monte vers le fort,parfaict moment avec la meilleure lumiere et une qualite' parfaicte qu'on retrouve toujours dans tes photos.Mes compliments et belle soiree',Luciano

excellent story, excellent name for this bridge.
I know Malgo won't approve of the love locks, she finds them to be more like graffiti and vandalism.
and good on ya to get a photo of this Iconic bridge in a peaceful mood - same thing happens to me when I photograph architecture in Las Vegas - very hard to do so without people in the frame.
and how important is TE? well, you mention this is the most popular or famous Iconic subject in Dublin...well, if not for TE i would NEVER have known about it.
