You're right it is not that bad, I could also say that it is pretty good in fact.
The panorama is stunning and I understand you need to often go in such area
Light throught the picture is really nice.
Nice you still find time to make picture outside with all the job you do here on pf.
I know the big amount of hours you spent about this re-design .
Very nice picture and well balanced composition
According to the map view this must be next to the southernmost point of your country. Staying there on such a tiny island in an own cabin must give the feeling of an "own empire" - even with an own flagpole as one can see. This landscape emates a wonderful calm and serentiy. I think this somehow is emphasized by the weather in your photo ...
The absence of all "screaming" colours here is a boon.
Greetings from again more and more summerly Germany! Have a nice week!
I like this near to nature landscape very much. It looks a bit like the "Fagnes" in the very east of Belgium near the German border. The large version of the photo really gives the impression of being there with you. The included plank bridge across the bog creates a wonderful and impressive depth and an impression of wideness here.
Greetings from summerly Westphalia. However, the nights already are getting colder ...
Hard to believe that this is an IPhone picture. What a beautiful view! Weather here was on your side and you have had wonderful conditions for taking photos. I like the spotlight of sun in the middle of the picture which lights up the meadows there and especially the red roof.
The large version is a real treat. I have had a wonderful hike with my eyes in it ... ;-)
Greetings from summerly Westphalia!
aqui na minha cidade elas estão começando a aparecer, bem como outros pássaros que não eram daqui ou que estavam desaparecidos. já tentei fotografar os bichos, mas eles são muito ariscos. linda esta foto tirada do fio de energia. belo trabalho.
Podem falar o que quiser do por do sol mas para mim eu sempre vou apreciar todos pois cada um é único e revela a grandiosidade da criação e do Criador. Ilha do Mel seria um ótimo lugar para eu comemorar meus trinta anos ... (de casado, hehehe..). Linda foto com tonalidades e luzes muito atrativas. Sem falar na composição que ficou ótima.
Parabens e abraço
zeca (2017/08/21 17:15:22): Concordo 100%, Ricardo! Poentes e nascentes são sempre únicos e enchem os olhos mesmo de quem já os viu milhares de vezes. Não me canso.
Quanto à Ilha do Mel, com certeza é um cenário muito legal para comemorar as suas Bodas de Perola! Ótima estrutura de hospedagem, boa comida, natureza exuberante e um astral delicioso. Parabéns pelos 30! Daqui a 3 anos chego lá!
Nós temos muitos azuis em nossas casas, especialmente no interior de nossos estados mas ninguém explora tão bem o azul com tanta beleza e charme do que a Grécia. Esta composição é um exemplo disto. Tudo bem cuidado que dá gosto de registrar.
Fantastic image, the sky is awesome, the water so special in the color with the different shades of tourquoise. Love the "Big Brother" boat, you need a friend when you're out in the wild sea :-) The coast line looks exotic with the palm trees decorating the streets with their long green leaves and large bodies. Nice.
Sorrry for the portuguese ! Minha esposa sempre diz que é um enorme prazer ver como as crianças se divertem nas praias. Então eu posso imaginar estes momentos inesquecíveis que você capturou aqui nesta beleza de imagem. Eu me alegrei com a sua foto.
Uma imagem cheia de beleza e qualidade. Meu IPhone já me salvou em diversas situações e renderam boas fotos. A sua nota me fez lembrar da música Let it Be. Acho que a letra se encaixa com a sua nota acima. Também não se esqueça : "Lançando sobre Ele toda a vossa ansiedade porque Ele tem cuidado de vós"(1 Pe 5:7 )
Amazing quality from your phone, especially evident from the LV. The scenery is stunning like so much from your part of the world.
Enjoy every minute with your Mum....I know you will. Never mind sitting processing camera images, when your phone is this good.
Great result from your iPhone. This is really a gift that your mum can still make such long flights in her age. Send her my best wishes, we had so much fun meeting her when she visited some years back. Oh yes, no rush with the photos, you need the time to be togehter, die Zeit ist kostbar. A wonderful landscape image, I love the cloud play but also how you composed the image with a little bit of fence in the image on both the sides sort of making a natural framing. The rolling hills in the different greens is really nice, wonderful also the mountains. Yes let's keep the big picture in the focus, we waste so much time with not important stuff.
A fantastic way to explore the marshland without touching the ground but you're still in the middle of the plants and insects and connect to the nature in a great way. Both images are very nice. While the LV focuses on the land itself, the board walk on the other hand makes a great visual lead-in-out and we kind of walk into the landscape with our eyes. I absolutely love to walk on these things.
I know of camel rides in Western Australia or I have seen horses but I think never donkeys. They're funny animals, very obstinate, if they don't want, well they don't want :-) Nice way to explore the riding feeling, if you fall, at least the sand is soft. I have been riding them, I think it was in Greece. Interesting why donkeys and why it became a tradition and not horses etc. Donkeys are more connected to the South, I think they're from Africa originally. Cute images, childhood memories - as you write.
That's a lovely decoration and a great lead-in without "losing" the altar. Edelweiss is such a typical Alpine flower, so much connected to our Alps, it gives me the same feeling like Enzian and also joy if I see them in the wild. Not sure if they're protected in the wild but meanwhile they also plant them for example for the beauty industry. Hope you had a nice Sunday :-)
Attractive the couple just as figures in the horizon, all about body language. Without seeing them you kind of feel they're together. But maybe I am mistken :-) Very nice atmosphere sort of "there is life on Mars" ... or similar. I have never been so far South but somehow remained in North America. This looks like a great place to discover. I LOVE harsh, inhospitable places, they're my speed.
zeca (2017/08/21 17:18:12): I am sure you will love Atacama! If you feel good in high places like this, GO AHEAD! It´s great!
What a name "L’Ile de Beauté". No question, you must return rejuvenated :-) Stunning color of the water here, it looks so clean, so fresh, so cooling ... a huge natural swimming pool. Beautiful image, the stripe of green that borders the water front looks great, adding a nice contrast to the otherwise sparking blue in the front. By the time you come home, I am ready and packed for our holidays mid September so probably we won't hear from each other for quite a while. In case you don't post this week, I wish you a lovely holiday, relax, explore ... come home with many images.
Yes the boardwalk makes a great lead-in to the image. Thanks for the LV to examine the details more closely. It looks like a beautiful area; what a pity bad weather forced you to curtail your break there.
A paradisiac picture.
If you go back in corsica : be very careful and check before : there is a lot of fires in the mountains. So be very careful. Some areas could even be forbidden.
Everlasting (2017/08/20 18:58:28): Thank you JM, and for your email. We are trying to keep ourselves up to date with the situation.
I know donkeys are used for some touristic activities. But I never saw some on beach :).
I guess all tourist do not appreciate .... you know with animals ...
On lot of beaches dogs are not welcomed so a donkey :).
Anyway I'm sure that for the kisd riding the donkeys it was a real pleasure.
Great for the theme.
feather (2017/08/20 16:08:32): Good point JMarc. Dogs are banned from this beach between May and September and any other time people are expected to pick up after their dogs. I'm guessing they pick up after the donkeys.
Lovely little series John. We would never guess you were out of comfort zone. The difference is that these people have already agreed that you can take their photos, so the pressure is off somewhat. You have captured the beautiful colours well.
We did something similar with a visit to a Massai village in Tanzania.
They may have already agreed but we errored on the side of asking. I am glad we did as some of the people did not want their picture taken. Our leader and our Massai guide tried for a massai village but the head man was kind-of greedy and asked for too much money/person so our guide walked away. We never did see a Massai village but there was some tribal dancing each evening in the dining room before the evening meal.
I don't remember this in other place, anyway I saw lots of camels in the beach in morocco and brazil but there are donkeys and mules in greece, but from the ports to the upper areas, not in the beach..
nice the twins in evidence and the child in pink at center. I liked the patterns of the sand too. lovely compo.
I don't think I have ever seen something like this on the west coast, maybe they do it on the east coast. We have horse back rides on some of the beaches like Bandon. Oregon. Donkey rides are usually associated with carnivals and fairs and the donkeys are tethered and go around in a circle like a carousel.
Very nice and something I wouldn't expect to see from the Cote d' Azur. But, then again having watched the le Tour there are palms all along the Med. coast, I really like the palm in sihouette and the highlights off of the water. A very nice series and I do like #3 and #9 along with the main.
The beautiful island takes second place in this image. Look at the beautiful "eau"! This really looks inviting and relaxing. With only a hint of people on the beach one could spend the day relaxing and reading, swimming, having lunch, reading, swiming, etc. A very nice travel image.
