Ciao Carlo, non li ho mai visti dalle mie parti, manterranno meglio le capacità nutrizionali, ma paesisticamente non mi sembrano un capolavoro, non che le classiche rotoballe sian più belle, i vecchietti come me hanno nostalgia per i bei pagliai di una volta, comodi anche per altri usi, sempre di gran fascino le colline toscane, belli i vivaci colori, bravo, ciao Silvio

A quite fantastic shot of the little bird seemingly standing still in the air. It's a clever flyer but obviously not so smart. But the composition is smart and the light and sharpness excellent.

Always the sleuth, I have tried (but in vain) to find out what that rather beautiful and ornate building behind the railings on the right might be: however, I suspect you might be right in thinking it is perhaps the Bishop's Palace judging by its grandeur.
But, whatever that building is, this is a fabulous view, the warm colours of the buildings standing out gloriously against the clear blue sky. In fact, I suspect if I'd been here I would have lingered quite a while in the shade of the cathedral and enjoyed the view a little longer - that sun looks blisteringly hot out there.
A very well composed photograph indeed with glorious light and colours, perfect exposure and stunning details and sharpness.

this is exactly what I dream about: a trip along the coast from Lake Bled down to Dubrovnik and even bit further to Montenegro and so. Sadly I would need more time and money than I have available -may be next year I can manage that. Also with my 3 year old daughter it could be too challenging as there are so many place I would like to see along the way.
This spot is first of the miraculous places. Great POV to present it from above and to emphasize its amazing location.
The weather was indeed quite bad but it didn't stop you from taking a great picture.
Very interesting mood almost as if it was raining.
I have answered your question about Cyprus under my Cyprus photo, but then I realized that India also has quite bad reputation in media recently. There are so many rapes happening and also on tourists, and police blames them that they are guilty themselves as they went off the beaten track. So to be honest India is also off my list for a while. It doesn't change much though beacuse I wouldn't be able to afford that trip anyway -so this is just an imaginary wish list :)

beautiful natural colors so well saturated. I like the intense green and blue. The mountain range looks spectacular. I had a pleasure to visit it few times I think but long time ago in predigital times.
Great quality picture,

amazing light conditions made this picture to a real masterpiece. I like very much the warm color tones here. The two guys indeed add some life and interest. And there are two camels parked behind. The houses indeed quite simple.
Beautiful rural scene,

Not really being a football fan, as soon as I read your title I was waiting to see a rowdy bunch of TE members bending their elbows in the Queen's Head in Buxton.
But this is a far more sober picture - and a fine one at that. How clever simply to crop out the bottom part of the scene which, of course, was littered with builders' rubbish and other detritus, but also to come up with a very appealing composition as a result.
There's not a lot of light on the main façade of the crescent but that is more than compensated by the lovely bright light on the corner of the building in the left foreground, so adding a wonderful sense of depth to the image. Lovely colours, perfect exposure and stunning details and sharpness. But where's the big sculpture on the roofline with the shield and two stags? I guess that must be slightly farther round to the right!

I am embarrassed to admit I had not heard of Manti-La Sal National Forest. It's beautiful with the cliffs and river, and the colors of the sky. I am grateful to learn about site in Utah.
