This is really one of the most beautiful photos in your rich gallery. Perched at the crest of the rugged mountains, you can see the drop off on the left immersed in soup fog, on the right, the details a sharp. I've heard of the rugged beauty of Slovakia, otherwise I know precious little about the difference in the Czech vs. Slovak sides. Again, this is a first rate photo.

Poppies are definitely my favorite flowers. I usually see them a bit further south were they often line the roads or railway tracks, more rarely covering entire fields like here. Their colour is fantastic, especially along with the green leaves and stems. This is another fine photo from the rural parts of Rügen, a simple but very beautiful scenery far away from the cities. It's not a complicated photo. This kind of landscape doesn't need any complications.

its fun to capture these scene in dirty puddle water :)
we have to look through the water to get the idea.
love the wiggle and the movement of the architecture.
excellent colors too, that helps out alot.

its fun to capture these spy kind of shots of everyday life.
its a casual moment caught on camera, nothing too powerful, nothing too spectacular but its hot that hint of romance and mystery. fine post
macjake (60698) 2015-08-03 10:27
wonderful looking shot you got here.
the exposure of the lighting is spot on.
and the way the buildings face us and fade away down to the left is attractive too, it flows smartly.

The light is genuinely beautiful on the Georgian house, bathing it in golden hues, and a highly distressed sky looming in the background. I think this is the best way to photograph some of the architecture anywhere. With a frequency of once per year I would see this sort of inspiring light while living in Oxford. Unfortunately it was during pre-digital photography days.

Oh yes, the BIG O.
What is it being used for now?
Looks like they have a new rooftop to it too.
lots of good memories of this ballpark, attended many Montreal Expos games when I lived in Ottawa.
thanks for this view, we don't see it enough on TE.
macjake (60698) 2015-08-03 10:14
Oh yeah, this is very cool!
I could look at photos like this all day long.
love the corkscrew twisting type of motion, and having that lady standing so still on the bottom left really puts things into perspective.

I thought I had critiqued this photo, but clearly I had not (I may have run out of green smileys). The vertical format is indeed the best way to accentuate the midget among giants. You had wonderful light to shoot this image. Indeed, with that wonderful reflection, in the curved glass, the facets accentuated by discontinuities in the reflected clouds. It might be a good choice for the group theme City reflections, if you care to put it there.
Incidentally, we are going to be in New York in late September. I am giving a lecture at One Day University, please, let me know and I will have them invite you.

we don't get to see many photos from the Yukon on TE do we!
interesting note, i'm glad you gave us some history of this place.
the mountains are common in Canada, but to see the typical Canadian trees in a desert landscape is kinda weird!
great post for TE, a welcome sight.

Hi Jean Claude
this has picture perfect postcard written all over it!
a river, a castle perched up on a hilltop, a walkway to enjoy the view, charming houses...what else could you ask for.
excellent subjects and shot
macjake (60698) 2015-08-03 9:57
this firework photo is a bit different because you have the bottom 4 lights spurting upwards like that, we don't see that usually.
you couldn't have asked for a better moment to capture these explosions. fine work as you do always!
macjake (60698) 2015-08-03 9:50
I wish we could see more and more photos of Montreal like this on TE, its a beautiful city.
so you didn't take the zip line across the city eh? haha
I don't think i've seen this exact viewpoint of the city before, thanks for showing it today.
its great to have the building skyline with a hint of beach, very cool.
holmertz (44552) 2015-08-03 9:47
These roofs should be teeming with activities, but I only see one or two persons (maybe). Perhaps this was a very hot part of the day. This is not only a very blue town, it also looks very congested. Where are the streets? Is there room enough for a car or even a rickshaw between the houses? I know the perspectives can play games with your eyes, but this really looks very dense. And I wonder what the neighbors think of the guy who painted his house pink. Traitor?
macjake (60698) 2015-08-03 9:45
I always enjoy viewing your landscape scenery scenes from Mother Nature.
This I think is one of your best, the way the light beams streak across the frame is wonderful.
and its an orange color we don't see too often.
sweet shot all around
macjake (60698) 2015-08-03 9:42
this isn't something you see everyday is it.
i guess thats what makes it that much more interesting and unique too - a very cool post here on TE.
Not sure what i like more, the clouds or he harvested corn!
excellent depth and weird forms! fun shot

A very nice photo from the height of summer. Judging from the flags it was not very windy on this hot day. The quay gives the view a fine depth and the woman in partly red, as well as the man in partly blue, provide nice dots of bright colours. The colours are generally very good and the strong light is well handled.
