    Hi Ike

    Apparently these birds are quite noisy and not noted for their melodic sounds. A good upward pov with perfect sharpness. The blue grey sky makes a great backdrop. Tfs!

    Excellent use of a shallow dof, with perfect sharpness on the mirrored reflection. Good colour and saturation. The tilt of the red brick church adds dynamism. Tfs!

    I like the soft diffused light and cheerful golden leaves of Autumn, both in the trees and on the ground. Good repetition of the dark tree trunks. Tfs!

    My tour bus to Austria drove past this Olympic site, but didn't stop there. Good sharpness and nice to see the park in good shape after almost 50 years. Tfs!

    Hello Mariusz,

    The rust red summit usually suggests weathered basalt, which is runny and liquid when it was hot lava, and less dangerous than the viscous, explosive tuff and rhyolite. Nice warm cold colour contrasts with the blue sky, good sharpness and the track adds perspective. Tfs!

    Hi Ian,

    Luckily it's a bathroom at the lower end of the house at left, so a little extra water there wont make a great deal of difference. But I worry about any snakes that might be in the floodwaters. Tfs!

    Hello Malgo

    Looks a little like the Tholos in Delphi which I have seen. But despite travelling across the Peloponnesus twice I have yet to visit Olympus, so thanks for uploading.
