Diederick,
THis is lovely. Could you tell us, is this body of water near your home? Lake , ocean? Just trying to get a sense of place. If it is in your city, you are very lucky to have this view each and every day.

Thank you for visiting, Carrie!!

Yes, Virginia, this is the lake where I live.
In the banner you see the front-line of Arona and I live just under the church tower: from one of my windows I can see the full immage of the yellow church on the left of the church tower. The yellow building you can see partially on the left of that yellow church is what I see from all the other windows, which overlook one of Arona's squares.
That yellow buildings hosts the school (high-school) which my son attended during his final school years.
As you say, I am lucky, because I just walk out of my alley and overlook the lake with a 180° view.
I do a lot of early morning walking in these beautiful surroundings.

oh god...
your photos usually amaze me, but these ones (the last 3 ones) have just left me speechless. And that's a very hard thing to do :-)))

sorry, I've been out of the web for 2 weeks, now I'm back!

How kind of you to say so, M.Isabel! I do not get red in the face that easily...

Sherry Stewart said...

Wow! Blinding Blue! ( I enlarged it, amazed)

Ann said...

I've now got The Owl and the Pussycat rattling around in my head (except the boat isn't pea green).

Lovely shot - as always.

JM said...

The title of your message says it all! What a fantastic shot! Love it!

this blue is really impressive!

Julie said...

Thank you for that information about Arona, Diederick. This is quite a stunning image - very courageous composition! The colours are stunning but it is the sheer audacity of the scale that is breathtaking ...

Blognote said...

Thanks, Eki!!

Thank you too for visiting, Zsolt!!

Thank you for your inspiring words, Julie!! I always appreciate your comments.

Hi Blognote. I've been working, digging, several months and just now getting the time to catch up on all my favorite blogs. You have been busy! Alps! How I love the Alps! Thanks for reminding me of all their dramatic beauty and power.
Glad you made it through your part of the son's building project.
Shalom to you.

Hello, Dina!!
Nice to have you back! I hope you have been able to dig up some interesting historical things. You should photograph them and then put them on your blog, so that you can share them with all of us...

Hi Blognote . Some archaeologists don't allow picture-taking, let alone picture-publishing on the Net. But my boss on the latest dig is easy about it. In fact he let me become the dig's unofficial photographer and will use my photos in his presentations. So I am lucky. I posted some, from July 15 on.
I love your views of manors today. Manor sounds so exotic and European to us!
