Hi Olivier. This is the most stunning costume so far. The top part reminds me of the Balkan oriental inspired embroidery but of course the swirling circular patterns would have Celtic origins. I do like the traditional story of the origin of the headdress as it speaks of defiance of the common person. Proud wearer here.Beautiful colours. Regards. Klaudio. Keep them coming.

you know i'm going to have to comment on this one right!?
so much about this photo that i like.
the depth, the upwards pov, the criss cross black lines, the clouds, the power and domination in the frame...just perfect.
it still amazes me how many photographers pass up on these shots all the time...glad to see that you didn't

I would imagine there are alot of hot sunny days like this in Isreal? :)
is this the norm?
looks like a not-so-good day to be taking photos, but what can you do?
then again, here in the Vancouver region we get so much rain and overcast skies...
lots of history here i would figure, this post and your newest post with the Olive branch/tree monument are a good combo together.
thanks for this one

trains trains and more trains :)
Keep them coming i guess!
I like that you put in the little section of blue water in the top left, like a corner of a page turned over, it gives just enough color contrast from all the greens.
but the focal point is how the red stands out so well too. again, it looks sort of like a miniature set :)
great view with all those trees.

I've missed you! I hope that you and your family are all well.
This is a lovely photograph from Liverpool even although it might not be all that terribly original. But it does bear all your hallmarks of a very fine composition, lovely light, true colours and exceptional details and sharpness.
The light on the buildings is superb and the black pear-shaped bollard in the foreground holds the composition together very well. Even the two seabirds on the right add foreground interest.

This is a very impressive view of these geothermal features!
Your composition here is excellent, the long narrow stream leading the eye very nicely toward the distant pool with its sulphurous vapour hanging above it. The people to the left of the pool add interest too, especially as one of them is wearing bright colours.
The orange of the earth contrasts well with the blue of the water and the sky, the light is beautiful, your exposure perfect and the details and sharpness excellent.
