Excellent colours and contrasts John with great textures in the rock and a wonderful viewpoint.

Mark.

Hi John
I've got a lot to say.
The picture: bright colors, nice scene, good composition.
The description.
If you can imagine a fool who takes a dictionary and tries to translate what you have written in Italian, so that's me.
You have written it for a purpose and I read descriptions, took a dictionary and here it goes:

"Lino-this photo is for you. Thank you for showing this place and taking some pictures of your beautiful land"
***
About your comments.
I did what I'd been told and corrected the level in PS.
Thank you so much and hope to see some more pictures from your trips.
BTW, Prague is admired by Italians. When you come here, apart from other things, you will practice Italian Smile
George

The placement of the people and the low angle you used on this makes it very interesting. Greta sense of dept and mystery of what lies beyond.

Thanks to all for the comments and the clicks. This shot was taken near Doolin Pier in West Clare, Ireland yesterday evening. I was taking some landscape shots of the ferry leaving Doolin Pier for the Aran Islands and when I turned around to make my way back up the rocks I saw this shot. The young couple in front are my daughter Sinéad and a young Italian student, Daniel Trabucchi, who is visiting us at the moment. I don't know who the old couple in the background are. I was struck by the contrast between the young couple and the old couple and fired off a few shots. When I loaded all my shots onto the computer last night, this was by far the best shot I got all day. As I looked at the image lots of things seemed to fall into place which emphasised the contrast between the two couples. Sinéad and Daniel were sitting close together whereas the old couple were sitting apart. Yet there were similarities too - both women have their arms folded in front of them and the men also have a similar pose. To round it all off, the stones in front and the polarised sky overhead seem to set the whole thing in a landscape straight out of a Beckett play (fanciful and arty farty I know!). The idea might have worked better if I did it in B&W.

The Italian description is a bit misleading. It's a message to Daniel's father who is an outstanding landscape photographer. The message says: "Lino - this shot is for you. You must join this site and upload some of those beautiful landscape photographs of yours."

At the end of the day, it's just one of the quirky types of photo I take from time to time.

A very conceptualistic idea of revising generations by putting them together;a great idea,a very important acomplishment for you,Johny.
Well done.

The intriguing contrast between the two couples, their positioning within the frame and the effective low viewpoint make for a really interesting capture, well done ...
