    Looks like central Italy. I like the fg yellow flowers which contrast so well with the blue sky. Good sharpness and a superb elevated vantage point. Tfs!

    Hello Krzysztof

    A good angled pov on the displayed uniforms and great to remember the sacrifices and hardships of the war to appreciate the efforts made to liberate Poland and Europe. Tfs!

    Hi Lars

    It was also well worth going inside Presner Fortified Castle. A good upward pov on the tower and the flowers add a splash of colour. Tfs!

    Looks similar to Waikiki in Honolulu. The same blue sea and tall coconut palms. Good sharpness and the people add scale and animate the scene. Tfs!

    Hi Ike

    And on the western side of the peninsula too, ideal for viewing sunsets. Tremendous silhouettes of the pier, restaurant and palm trees with pleasant warm colours in the sky and impeccable sharpness. Tfs!

    Hi Gert

    It's the same story here. Many refugees were incarcerated in detention camps offshore on neighboring islands or imprisoned in detainee hotels in the large cities. Some of them have moved to Canada and the USA, tired of waiting for the slow moving wheels of bureaucracy. Others succumbed to poor medical services or suicide. But at least Sweden has publicly acknowledged that there is a problem, unlike Australia, at least until the recent change of government here. For every bad refugee, I am sure you will find that there are thousands more who did or do fit in well and contribute enormously to society. Australia just appointed it's first two Muslim Ministers in government, ever.

    Hi Costantino

    Looks like a nice summer resort especially on a hot day with a clear blue sky and a blazing sun. I like the repetition of the palm trees which add a subtropical look. Tfs!

    The fg pale yellow brown sand contrasts well with the grey blue sky and water. Good sharpness and the fg boat is well placed in the frame. Tfs!

    Looks similar to the countryside around Erzurum in east Turkey, once the snow has melted around mid April. Terrific layering with an expansive view of the terrain. Tfs!

    I like the reflected blue skylight in the water contrasting with the green lily pads. Oh and the black ibis steals the show. Tfs!

    This scene needs no introduction. The Nazi prison uniforms are instantly recognizable. And it wasn't just the Jews that they persecuted. The Nazis were ruthless with anyone or anything at odds with their warped ideology. Tfs!

    The style of mask is familiar. Probably when perusing Dante's Inferno images. Good sharpness and the man adds scale. Tfs!

    Hi Lars

    I did visit one fortified church from Brasov by catching local buses to & from Prejmer fortified church. The only guesthouse was closed and there were no restaurants, so I abandoned any plans for an overnight stay and headed back to Brasov after the obligatory photos. Tfs. This one looks similar. A nice drone shot of Prejmer I found on internet.
