What a wonderful cobbled pathway and incredible colouring on the walls ~ the detail is great if you blow the shot up to full size and the eye gets drawn deep into the scene ~ great textures and gentle colour ~ Bravo Valeria ~ I wish you a great weekend and welcome you back with a Golden Star for your purse ~ Hugs ~ Ciao nick

Thank you my dear friend!I am so glad to receive your nice words of appreciation...they mean really much for me!:)These first pictures were taken in the ancient town of Gerace, in Calabria, one hundred km far from my grandmother's town where I stayed. It is a very ancient town: it has greek origins but the most important period in its history is Middle Age; it is a medieval jewel and mantains a special atmosphere in its silent alley and beautiful churches. Thank you very much for your Golden Star!

Lots of hugs! Valeria
