Wonderful, wonderful shot, May! Standing fast in that rugged, barren setting!

Very best wishes, Marilyn

Thank you very much, Marilyn! It is a pretty sight, when one descends the steep side of the crater down towards the plain and the sea. :-)

Best wishes, May

Greetings May. There are many good pictures in this sereis, but this shot is head and shoulders above the rest. A great composition!

Cuantos contrastes! El suelo, la capilla, la montaña del fondo... Una foto simple pero completa a la vez. Muy bien hecha, May!

I like this one May! It's very simple and quite powerful with such strong natural contrast. I'm convinced the building chose white for this very reason, against that beautifully rich brown hillside.

Thank you all so much for your wonderful comments. I'll think of you all, when I am there. :-) Please excuse me, when I can't thank you individually. My time for preparations gets rather short! Thank you again, my friends! :-) For those who are interseted, more photos from El Hierro are under my other name Redwall, seen below my favourites.

My best greetings, May

I have found a few minutes to spare! ;-) Thank you very much, Wim! This church is very nicely situated on this red hill. And special thanks for the Y*!

Would be nice on a wedding cake, Palmina! :-))

Jörg, ja, sie sieht richtig festlich aus.

Bea, stimmt, die Farben sind einmalig!

Eme, thanks!

Hank, beautifully said, thank you! It is a very photogenic little church.

Marcelo, muchas gracias por tus palabras. La natura a hecho un trabajo muy bonito en esta isla.

Ryan, I think, you are right! ;-)) The church has put on its white Sunday dress.

Thank you all! Many greetings, May
