We are walkers with cameras rather than serious photographers, so our shots are about recording the place rather than photographic excellence. We currently use a Canon 400D and a 300D, although some of the older shots were taken on a Praktica digital compact or scanned from prints taken with a Canon 100FN or APS film compact. Nowadays I straighten horizons and adjust saturation and contrast a little in Photoshop before uploading, but generally the shots are close to how they were captured. Most of the shots (all recent ones) have descriptions or comments describing what you can see in the view, just click on the thumbnail to see these. All the shots are tagged with area, country, subject etc. Click on the "Show all tags" link below to find all the shots of your favourite area or subject. Hope you enjoy the gallery. Pete

Wonderful picture, excellent photo! LIKE & Favorite.

Greetings, Imre


É uma palavra portuguesa que expressa um sentimento, que expressa um estado de alma...

Há quem diga que foi inventada durante o tempo dos descobrimentos, pois era o que as famílias dos marinheiros sentiam quando eles partiam à descoberta dos novos mundos e ficavam anos e anos sem terem notícias suas!

E na verdade, ao longo de todos estes anos, nós aqui no Panoramio, começamos a sentir-nos como uma verdadeira família.

Infelizmente chegou a hora de vos dizer adeus, meus queridos amigos... :-(

Não me quero ir embora sem, pela última vez, vos dar mais um F & L e endereçar-vos desde aqui, da cidade do Porto em Portugal, um grande abraço já cheio de saudades,

Mário Eloi Castro

Kamalakar Anthati - Many thanks for your visit into my photo-gallery and your comment – Best regards from Athens

After the first petition with 10.500 signatures, in June 2015 Google said that "Panoramio will stay alive". Now just one year after that declaration, they decided to close Panoramio forever. Any sense of credibility is totally lost, together with our work !!!!!!!!!

We can still fight for the preservation of this platform! The address for your protest: Alphabet Inc. Attn Corporate Secretary 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043 Email:

There is also our Latest Petition in, but recent history is proving, that only with petitions we can't do anything, if Google doesn't want to hear anymore our voices.

Estimado AMIGO, lo que es una lástima que ahora Panoramio realmente está a punto de terminar! Fue un tiempo agradable. Gracias por sus numerosas visitas y amables comentarios. No sé si voy a unirse a otra comunidad fotográfica y le deseo todo lo mejor y disfrutar durante mucho tiempo de la fotografía, Kelly Davico

Hallo Burkhard, leider ist es an der Zeit, tschüß zu sagen!:( Die Zeit bei Panoramio war sehr schön, und es ist traurig, dass sie nun bald vorbei sein wird. Nach langer Überlegung habe ich mich entschlossen, auf Google+ weiterzumachen, bzw. meine Fotos dorthin transferieren zu lassen. Bin mal gespannt, wie lange das dauern wird. Vielleicht schließe ich mich auch einer anderen Platform an, evtl. Ipernity, wie viele andere Panoramio-user auch. Ich wünsche dir alles Gute und weiterhin viel Freude beim Fotografieren. Liebe Grüße, Anne

PS: Auf Initiative von JohnnySixtyLove habe ich eine eMail an Alphabet Inc. geschrieben, sozusagen als letzten Versuch, Panoramio zu retten.

Hier ist der Text:

Re: Closing of PANORAMIO

Gentlemen, sadly, Google has decided to close Panoramio, where millions of ambitious photographers from all over the world have been sharing their photos of our planet! Google has been profiting by our work and now they simply decided to deprive us of this platform which over the years has gained so much importance for us! This is a scandal and I urgently ask you to reconsider Google's decision and prevent the closing of Panoramio. Very truly yours

Die eMail-Adresse lautet:

Wer mag, kann diese eMail kopieren und ebenfalls verschicken. Es ist, wie gesagt, nur ein letzter Versuch.

Hi Pete time to say goodbye!!! Thank you for all your visits!!!

YS & LIKE !!!

Greetings Burkhard

Molto bello! Io amo. La vita va avanti dopo
