It's never a chore commenting on all your wonderful offerings, Antonio. Always top notch! In addition, the music & verses you couple with the fine images, are always "spot on" & add so much to the whole presentation! Rock On, Amigo!

#7 is my favorite of this series, such a scenic place!
It looks like a fairy tale castle.
Oh, and if the puppy in #2 doesn't have anything else going on, I'll take him for awhile grinning

#4I rather like this shot. Hard Contrasty light can be hard to shoot in and have a decent result .

Love the puppy,and what a view and a bit of sun

Antonio Gil Replied to Berckmans Peter 1 year, 4 months ago

Too much sun to be honest smile Very hard light, that's why I overedited these images. Not my better work.

OMG, how cute was this welcome party! Did they fit in the luggage?
The castle is on the right spot to oversee the whole valley. Perfect choice for looking down on everyone and everything at any time!
Stunning beautiful landscape and breathtaking pictures!

The mother entered into the car to see if there was something to eat and of course there was. smile The place was beautiful but I'm sure if we got there in the first hours of the morning the light would be lovely - not the case though

Really great landscape-photos ! Love #5,  perfect light !

Antonio Gil Replied to Heike 1 year, 4 months ago

Hahahaha. She didn't want to leave her mother. #5 - thanks for the compliment but actually the light was so hard it was very difficult to get almost any contrast at all.

I saw pictures of this place in summer time and it was full of water. Thanks dear CRI. Not my favourite pictures though because the sun light was so harsh and there were almost no contrasts

As Carl Sagan
said: "There are naive questions, tedious questions, ill-phrased
questions, questions put after inadequate self-criticism. But every
question is a cry to understand the world. There is no such thing as a
dumb question". Frodo wave us goodbye and then he went smile
