I guess when I think of Cacti I don't really think of Turkey! I tend to think of the American Desert, or similar like places.
I like how you placed the catci on the far right, leaving the landscape to be viewed in the remaining portions of the frame.
I wouldn't want to get lost in this terrain! Yikes!
awesome collection of greens and plantlife.
see you around

I think these iconic VW vans are fabulous - people seem to pack so much into them. A lovely shot with a good red theme that hold the elements together. Good separation and a dynamic picture of the boy with his skateboard. Very well done.
Kind Regards, Ann

perhaps its best that their backs are turned against you, maybe they wouldn't have been happy being photographed.
the man on the left with the colorful top and bright yellow pants certainly stands out the most.
as you say, its the perfect morning light.
couldn't have asked for anything better.

I am looking through your the US folder. I have see a lot of familiar places. Excellent photo, marvelous colors and perfect DoF. But I have never been in Nevada. May be next time.
Best wishes from Ural,

Impressive Alpen landscape, I do like your idea to create so interesting composition with the yellow lines of the trees. It's excellent separating of the snowcovered ground and mountains. TFS!
Have a great weekend!

I think I have seen this kingfisher in one of the gardens in Yorkshire. There was a collection of exotic bids over here. This is an irony though because I think I have never seen a European kingfisher yet.
Beautiful wild life photography, great light, and the bird so well exposed.
Have a great weekend,

Oh, it looks like a photo from family album. This is really interesting story and I think they were glad to meet you too.
Yes, it seems me she is looking to the future without fun and optimism. But another four were really happy.
Best wishes from snowcovered Ural,

This is a very nice view of the river and the forest on the other side. The boat gave you a fine foreground. The trees are very beautifully reflected in the quiet water. The light and colours are very good.

This is an amazing picture, one of those that I would have loved to take myself (you have lots of that kind in your gallery). Life is so full of great photo opportunities if you know how to look for them. It's a funny house by the way, and I enjoy how the "lawn" is overgrown in front of the older looking side and neatly cut in front of the more modern part. The roof and the grass frame the view very neatly.

It's a very nice photo and I hope theirs were good too, so they won't be discouraged. The light was not ideal for you, but you used that disadvantage very cleverly to create these fine silhouettes. That probably makes your composition more attractive than if we had seen the boys properly. I like the contrasts of bright green and almost black.

welcome to the twilight zone!
where when you walk you walk into new dimensions of color!
now, if you had a secondary photo that PROVES the woman's shirt was Blue seconds before...then you'd be onto something special! haha
this is actually a pretty cool shot.
love the 4 large windows spread evenly, love the stark contrasts of the horizontal brown wood on the left vs the bright red vertically stacked wood on the right.
most people would not see much potential in this scene, but you got it.
and as for the #46...well, anytime you can include a large number sign like that you go for it.
its a cool crop, well spotted.
see ya around
