Wow, what a great title and what a magnificent profusion of flowers. The colours, light and textures are truly sensational. What a wonderful opportunity to see this amazing phenomena.

Another excellent POV to get the best of the views available. The water is simply amazing, pure magic and makes me want to dive in for a swim. I like the contrast of the seaweed and the coloured kayaks. They're splayed beautifully.
Warmest wishes, thanks for sharing

A very attractive image with lovely lights and colours. The speeding boat is well placed in the frame and makes a good pointer up the canal, which running straight as a die creates a fine perspective. I like the due prominence given to the sky, which is really very appealing with its puffy little clouds.

It is always a delight to come across places like away from the crowds and tourists but still offering opportunities for the keen photographer. The line of washing introduces a human element into the scene, which is well composed and has good colours and sharpness. I like the long perspective.

Ciao caro Giovanni
hahahaha this is delightful. Delicious, delectable and delightful. What a decisive moment, it's so compelling. The little girl's dad is in for a surprise - and perhaps a snack - later. Superb definition, colour and skin tones. I also like the tight framing, an excellent composition.

The pp work is really quite something turning a photograph into something that more resembles a water colour. I like the composition and point of view looking up the street toward the focal point offered by the church tower. The people bring the scene to life.

Salut mon cher Jean
Ahh this is truly magical. I love the Pink Hour, the so perfectly exposed and its reflection in the sea and sand. The lighthouse makes for an interesting skyline. A beautifully composed and illuminated shot. Congratulations.

I would never tire of seeing these amazing flowers. Your composition is top-notch and the way the light has played on the flowers and illuminated them is really quite exquisite. I also like the golden light on the tree trunks in the BG. That dappled light really creates a magical atmosphere. Simply stunning.
Have a great day and thanks so much for your kind words about the Reef.

A splendid landscape very agreeably illuminated and with lovely natural colours. The rocky peak makes a magnificent focal point. The banks of mist offer additional interest and contribute to the overall atmosphere of the shot. All in all a delightful image well woth lingering over.

A fine point of view on this pleasure port using the rows of boats to draw the viewer into the scene and giving it perspective. The surrounding wooded hills offer some contrasting colours and textures. I like the light and colours. Very good sharpness.

How wonderful that you found this gem of a picture in your archives! I can't believe that you've been sitting on this marvellous photograph for over four years!
The light here is simply divine and I love how it brings out all the vibrant colours of the peoples' clothing and their gorgeous reflections on the wet sand.
A very fine composition which I suspect is greatly helped by the exclusion of the sky, fabulous light and colours and exquisite details and sharpness.
