Hello Jim, what a beautiful new set of night pictures! Perfect colors, contrasts, compositions!

Greetings, Gabe

You had a really great trip around these wonderful little houses, with that fantastic dark blue sky above your head. Great job, really! And I can see by the slope that it was also some sport!

Great land!

Cheers! Joelle

john6668~~~Night photography, I find, is such a pleasure John...To watch this images appear in the LCD, following long exposures, leaves me with a feeling of satisfaction!

Gabor Retei~~~Good to see you, as always dear Gabe..Your affirmation means a great deal to me!

JoelleGiannoni----I'm glad that you have enjoyed these photos Joelle and yes, you are right, I had a great time exploring these quiet little streets..The village was almost deserted..I met only a handful of people during my four hour expedition and three of them were inebriated!

Many thanks to you all for your visits, endorsements, precious comments and votes

Kind regards!

I was attracted by the photo, and intrigued by the title, and then I zoomed ans saw the tiny house. Nice one, Jim, and I love the colour combination and the angle of view. Cheers! Theolfa

Neil Grimwood~~~Greetings Neil..I'm slipping up here my friend...trying to keep up with my mail but failing miserably, as usual!

As for the little house, I have no idea why it was there nor did I notice it until the image was downloaded! I'm glad you enjoyed this one! Thanks Neil!

ButsYV~~~Greetings Yuri_ ;) I truly appreciate your numerous visits and precious comments...and I'm looking forward to visiting your gallery soon!

YOLANDA~~~A warm welcome ;) Loved your compliments , many thanks!

Scarulu16~~~The village streets are connected by many narrow alleyways with the old houses so close to each other that you could reach across to your neighbour and shake hands and lovers could exchange embraces! A very friendly little village!

Bánfalvi Suzi Natusk~~~~If only you could see this for yourself Natuska..the reality is much more beautiful than any number of photos!

Theolfa~~~The village is built into a steep narrow valley, close to the edge of crumbling cliffs..Millions ££££ have been spent to protect the coastal zone from erosion, but eventually nature will win and claim the seaward end of the village to an eternal fate! There is not one straight alley or street in the village and local builders have a hard time maintaining/repairing the constant wear and tear on the fabric of the centuries old buildings because access is restricted to wheel barrows only!

dady 2~~~A very warm welcome Dady...I am happy for your lovely comment and kind appraisal..Glad you liked the photo!

.To you all, I express my sincere gratitude for your visits, precious comments, your endorsements and L. votes!

Kind regards :)

That's so sad, Jim, but all the more reason for you to take picture of these lovely landmarks while they are in good condition. Keep it up! Theolfa

Μεγάλωσαν τα παιδιά και ο κοσμος των θαυματων και των παραμυθιών έχασε την ομορφιά του, οι Lilliputians βρέθηκαν στον δρόμο Jim!

Εξαιρετική εικόνα και τίτλος. Λ!
