I agree with "WOW" ...
That scene is so inviting - some photogs do that for me ...
Just set it as my desktop image ... a much bigger "wow" on my 19" flat panel LCD screen.

Yes, it has a *take your breath away* kind of quality. I just stumbled upon it whilst doing some casual *surfing on the worldwide reticular*. Kudos to whoever took the shot. J.P. I'm sure that your interpretation of it on canvas will be quite captivating.

That is a lovely picture. It reminds me of home. I have this one I ran
across. I had a good cry when I saw it. I've just got to share it.
Jesus holding the earth crying. I still cry when I see it.

My favorite town on the Baltic Island of Gotland - Yes, the Police station there is affectionately called *Gotland Yard*:

But it is a very beautiful place, some stunning photos there.

Thank you for sharing CD.

Hi Ms. Margaret,

Gotland, with its 3145.45 square kilometer area has 92 churches dating from the 9th-13th century. It is also known as *kalkstenshawaii* - loosely transliterated as calcium stone hawaii, since the climate there is more moderate than the Swedish mainland - A good summer on Gotland can be like in the Mediterranean.

Cheers,

CD :):):):)

Yes this is a great photo!!! Does anyone notice the face in the mountain? Look to the left of the steeple at the mountain peak just before the dip on the ridge. It is lit by the sun...kind of looks like an older womans face.

That certainly IS a wonderful waterfall, though no amount of money nor padded barrels would see me over its edge ...

Ah! So it was a waterfall who said you've got me over a barrel was it.

I don't blame you. There are some where you can walk down into it safely
but I wouldn't dare. There is a park in Cave-in-Rock where I could visit
where one of these sink holes happened. They look like caves and you
can go inside one like a cave. No having to go down a hole to see what
it looked like. I had to walk around and find the cave opening and some
of them in Mexico have walk in caves where you can go into a cenote
without going down.

Judy,
I saw a program on the Travel Channel where someone who lived in Mexico had one of those on his property. He used it as a natural swimming pool. The water stayed at a warm temperature (in the 70sF) year round. It was beautiful.

Hi Corno. the picture you posted tells a lot of stories for me. Makes me think of how it feels to live in front of a church. and when you loog around, almost everything is green! People there live in a flat land at the foot of a mountain range, but do you thinks they climb up the mountains when they're bored? Or when they need a magical fruit to heal a disease? Or probably pay tribute to some gods. I can only come up with a thousand questions here. But as per the photo, it's really beautiful. Calm, yet unusual.

Unfortunately, I can't get the second and third photos to expand into wallpapers. That always frosts me when a picture remains postage stamp size. Why do people post such things?

That first picture, judging from the roofs, must be someplace where it snows. WHERE is it?

Not too long ago, I read someplace that some landowners in Arizona suddenly discovered that their place had a vast cave underneath. I guess they are still in the process of exploring to see what all is there.

I found this arresting picture elsewhere some time ago, and couldn't refrain from saving it, despite the feeling it had been manipulated at least a little - as so many photographs and even videos are today.

But no matter.

I know the territory where it was taken so appreciate its historic and photogenic merit, augmented for me by otherwise limited exposure to like treasures. The preservation of such a heritage photographically adds significzntly - considering how Canada and indeed much of the globe is being despoiled by "progressive" developers ploughing under remnants of past glories and Nature's beauties for short term economc gain.

Who would have the audacity and bad taste to build a high-rise condo overlooking such a view? It could happen here, where our lakeshores are being denuded of their natural beauty and lined progressively by ugly monster homes or condos. But then, I suppose the people who buy such properties wouldn't appreciate such an outlook - a saving grace, perhaps.

Do I sound too sour?

I tried to comment on the Goytland picture but my reply turned up as a response to the Mexican one!

Since John Watt likes to show his special guitar. Here's a picture
of one I wished I had. Problem is I don't have the $3,000 they are
asking for. I guess I will stick with my Fender Natural flat top one.

I wished! This building isn't built yet. But I call it the church's
and courthouse we have now's baby. It's going to be a new
courthouse that looks like the old church. The guys are working
hard to get this one done. The skeleton frame is up and I
guess the rest is in the future. I just wonder what it will look
inside by next year when it's done.
