Beautiful pool and gorgous view! Is this your pool?

You really have a gift . . . a talent to capture an elusive thing called 'atmosphere.'

Thank you for visiting the blog, Teenager of the Arabian bloggers.

Yes, Virginia, you are right. It iscertainly hard to have to say goodbye to summer!!

Thank you for your comments, Tanya!! This pool belongs to friends of mine. In such way I only enjoy the pleasure of it, but do not have to do the maintenance jobs!

Thank you for your kind comment as well, Ilse!!

Thanks Chuck!!

Another gorgeous pool! But while you're saying goodbye to summer, we're eagerly awaiting its arrival...

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment! I'll be popping in here more often I think; you have some really beautiful photos.

Great photo. Love your blog!

Ken said...

It's always a sad day when the pool is closed for the season because we know winter is not far away.
I wish our pool had that beautiful view.

First impresson David Hockney. More and more I am beginning to notice a photographers style connected to a painter. I am a hockney fan so obviously I like the tranquilty of this whole scene.

Thank you for your comments and comparison with David Hockney, Babooskha!! Infact, both siwmming pools picture somewhat the same atmosphere.

Sally said...

Aaaah, babooshka nailed it - I thought David Hockney as well!

Nathalie said...

Talk about swimming with a view!!!!
Stunning!

Nathalie said...

...but tell me, is it heated?

Nathalie said...

I hadn't visited your blog in a while and had forgotten what a good photographer you are. Your photos are wonderfully varied and interesting. I loved your portrait of the accordeonist and the perched castle in the mist.
I'll be back

D said...

Yep, the only thing better than having a pool, is having a friend who has a pool! :)
Beautiful photo. The blues are amazing!
And now, I have to google David Hockney.
I learn so much just visiting all you CDP people!

Indeed, good bye to summer. Yesterday felt like Autumn for the first time. Cool morning, warm day, cool evening, but even in the warmth of the day, there was that certain crispness that comes with autumn in the air.

"Louis" thanks you for visiting San Francisco Bay Daily Photo.

Sherry said...

That is too beautiful, to perfect looking almost surreal..I wan to swim there!

Blognote said...

Thank you, Sally!!

Thank you, Nathalie!! Yes, the pool is heated so usable also in October!! Thank you also for your most kind words.

Thank you too, D, Louis and Sherry!!

Kris said...

I feel like a dip now!

jill said...

Wow, this photo seems to breathe a soft sigh.

Olivier said...

je me verrais bien assis le long de cette piscine, mais avec un cocktail ;o).

I would see sitting along the pool, but with a cocktail ;o).
