No kidding! Nothing like the Alps!

I'm no editing guru but there's a lot of light coming into that pic. I was curious to see if I could enhance it a little. Hope you don't mind Wartstein. Not sure I actually improved anything. I'm sure somebody with more experience could really make that pop

True on the Alps! ;)

Thanks for your editing! Looks cool, almost "unreal" though, like in a phantasy-world... ;)

I have no idea of making photos and editing, just use my rather crappy smartphone and if I see a nice background I quickly take a pic from time to time.

Yes, now it's your turn. Usually people submit their photos all week, then the previous winner picks a new winner on sunday night or monday.

Congrats Tap78 and SharpGuy!

Yeah that was a nice run of pics, everyone. :)

Wartstein, that’s another stunning scene. You really do live in a picture postcard, my friend. :cool:

A quick one from my one hour bike ride daily lockdown exercise today:

That’s hilarious! Thanks tap78! Pretty sure this is the first time I’ve ever posted inside here?

Last night my wife stuck her head in the garage and asked me what I was doing? Said I’m trying to keep this knife from sliding off the car so I can take a picture of it, her words.......”that’s stupid!”

Excuse me while I go rub her nose it this! ;) :D

It looks as if the knife must now be imbued with some ethereal quality!
