I am throwing in something fresh here, as I just arrived back home after a 4-5 hours drive in the countryside. The result was around 150 pictures, and here is one of them!

The weather in my part of the world is still great, so I’m afraid you have to bear over with my blue skies for some time yet…

I will soon finish my series “Mountain Landscapes” and I am thinking about starting a loose theme like this, “Side Roads”…

Hi Pablo,
Nothing could be dearer my heart than the exploring of side or back roads in the countryside. Unfortunately there are all too few of these left in the more populated areas...I like the billowing clouds, the golden fields and the perspective of the road and walker off to the left. There is a real "heart of the summer" feel to this shot. Well captured, Pablo.

Hi Pablo!
Another beautiful landscape with many beautiful clouds!
I like the colors especially the blue of the sky.The clouds and the road create a good depth of the image.

What a view, Pablo! Nice composition with this gentle yellow slope bordered by the road with the walker, but the main point of interest here are these clouds, what a feeling of volume there, what an amazing light...


Hi Pablo,
Superb natur and sky shot.Wonderful colours and composition.Very well done.


Hello Pablo,
what a great sky you've captured here.
The compostion is superb with the girl walking on the road.
Perfect colours and light.

Pablo bonsoir !
Oh ! quel ciel ! C'est du relief pour les nuages sur ce fond bleu, merci Hoya !
Et le sol n'est pas en reste avec les tons dorés des champs de blé fauchés. Cette route avec une passante part vers l'horizon donne encore de la profondeur.
Une réussite !

Bonsoir Pablo,

Jolie composition avec la route complètement calée sur le côté, cela donne un cadrage original, laissant la place au paysage et à ses couleurs. Le ciel nuageux est magnifique !

Hello Pablo
There's a lot of symphony in the shot. Everything in the picture screams for attention. The marvellous clouds, the undulating slopes leading to the road, the yellow of the crop, the lonesome walker on the road. Amazing my friend...I look forward to your new series

Hi Pablo.

An excellent sky. Impressive. The composition with the road on the left side with the man is a good idea.

The sky is stunning and it comes as no surprise that you have devoted 2/3 of your pic too it. I long for skies like this at the mo in the UK. The undulating landscape also provides interest with its golden colour. Very nice work!
Best wishes

Hi Pablo, A lot of interesting details are shown in this frame. The fitness person exercising, The crop just been harvested. Great colours here. It may be suitable for an artistic painting effect. I tried this as a workshop. Murray.

Hei Pablo,

Very nice photo. I really like the way the clouds compliment the landscape. I allso like the colors and light in this image. Very nice work. TFS.

Hei Pablo,

"sol y sombra", "sun and shadow"... the sky is magnificent and I like very much the shadow of the clouds on the fields.

Your composition with a large place for the sky, the road with the walker is very well done.

Fantastic sky with gorgeous clouds in this magnificent composition.
Excellent contrast and colours.
Thanks for sharing and have a great week, my friend

Hi Pablo,

A good POV of the road, the field and of the blue sky with beautiful clouds, the photo i sharp and clear. It has a good DOF and nice colors. Thanks for sharing.


Hola Pablo,

Nos muestras una imagen fantástica, la composición es perfecta, has logrado un equilibrio perfecto entre contrastes, colores e iluminación, buena idea incluir la carretera con esa persona paseando, buen trabajo!



Hei Pablo
The weather is heaps bette in Norway than here. What beautiful heavy clouds. I like the depth created by the line of the road and fields. Including a person adds an extra dimension. Great sharpness.

Very nicely done Pablo,well balanced composition with good exposure.

Hi Pablo, the biker that I am, roads always gives me a high.. and this road is just awesome. Everything about the photograph is so natural, the azure skies, with cotton-flake clouds, the golden fields and the silent straight road with the woman walking home. Perfect 10.

incredible perspective with the lonely women. well framed. have a nice day.

Hi my friend

Perfect shot here, the light, the colors, the sky all perfect


The clouds seem to be billowing right out of my screen; the polariser has certainly brought out the best in them. You were right to give the sky such a prominent place in your composition. I like how the gentle lines of the cut crops echo the direction of the road, all leading us into the frame.

hi pablo
Very good work here. The slope of the landscape giving the diagonal line, the clouded sky, very effectful and of course the inclusion of the person alone in the road. Good work - hopes the fine weather is still around (..but probably not with the +27 to +32 as we presently enjoy in the South of France...)

welcome back with posts... eager to see new hits...
very nice cotton clouds... good depth colors of sky...

Wow! What a shot,Pablo!
I adore these clouds!
The colors, the sharpness - everything is perfect!

Hello Pablo, this exposure very is successful with little d`élément, and finally rather photogenic, I like the dominant position of this hill to the colour to gild, the explosion of clouds extremely is successful, the colors are sublime, the glance is directed perfectly by the road, sincerely

Good theme, Pablo, about the side roads. Here we see a crossroad of a people road and cloud road. The blue of the sky is in beautiful contrast with the gold of the hill...

Hi Pablo
Great shot and nice blue sky. The skies aren't as blue and sunny as this in England but we still have some warmth. Nice pov and a great inclusion of the road and the walker to add some scale. Very nice work.

Olá Pablo, this is a very impressive image, quite diferent from your series of Mountain Landscapes, where there was nothing especially dramatic happening. Here, we have a marvellous cloudy sky, a beautiful yellow field and an excellent perspective. The road at left is perfect and the person is just great in there. The colors are astonishing!

Hi Pablo,
this picture has incredible power :)
I dont know if it is beacuse of the impressive blue sky, the contrast, beautiful landscape, or the fantastic composition, or probably all together? :)
Vero (be back)

Stunning shot. The colours are so fantastic with the white clouds scattered in the blue sky. The road on the left is leading into the image. Good contrast and depth.

Hi Pablo,
Very nice picture ! I like the strong blu of the cloudy sky and the position of the road on the left...
Great colors !

Hello Pablo,

Quel splendide ciel, cela donne une profondeur unique à cette photo aux couleurs saturées, la paille du champs est également superbe. Merci du partage.

Hi Pablo
Excelent composition. Great moment to capture those colours and those clouds (those are the thing that is "my definition" of cloud!).
So, have you also brown countryside in rainy Norge? ;-) It's almost (almost!) like Portugal's Alentejo.

Hi Pablo. This is an extremely dramatic polarised shot, with the 'side road' being truly on the side. The walking figure is a marvellous inclusion under these vast clouds. Lovely colour and contrast in a magnificently contrived composition. Well done.

I don't think that there is anything left to say about this excellent shot! Just superb!!

Hello Pablo,
The clouds looks like to be in relief !Interesting character in the left which give animation in the photo!
Well done !

Hi Pablo,

Wonderful scenery of rural Norway. Rich color dark and royal blue of the sky and pure white of the clouds then the ochre color of the field make this one a wonderful rural scenery.

The guy at left adds a toutch of oddity to the whole picture.


Beautiful view on the countryside with clouds!! I lsao feel happy with a blue sky and clouds. You show a long long enjoyable perspective and fantastic colors

Woow wonderfull view excellent composition and shot.
Very beautifull photo and clear .....
Thanks for sharing....


You're right Pablo, there is a similarity between our two photos taken on the same day.
The sky is wonderful here; beautiful big fluffy white clouds, and they contrast well with the deep blue sky.
Good composition too, with the road leading the eye into the distance, and good use of the figure to give a sense of scale to the scene.

Hi Pablo,
Magnificent photo. Perfect colors, amazing beauty clouds and excellent perspective. Well done my friend.
Have a nice weekend.

Hi pablo
Beautiful shot and very well composed, i love the sky and i'm very impressed with it, bravo à toi

excellent POV with the road on an extreme side and fantastic light and quality.
thanks, ciao

Pablo the clouds are amazing here, so white and puffy as far as the eye can see. The wheat field has been harvested, the sky a deeper blue, it must mean fall is on the way ;-{ Nice perspective of the rolling hills and road.
TFS Janice

Hello Pablo,
My friends always say that I am a collector of white puffy clouds.. But it seems I am not the only one. You captured a great scenery with the proper angle and at the right hour too, and with an extraordinary bright and clear light one can find only in nordic countries.

Hi Pablo,
So much has been said about this incredible landscape that what more can I add! Its like looking at some other world altogether. Love the 3 dimensional effect that you have managed to achieve.

bonne soirée

Hi Pablo,
I like the way you've set up this photo with the incredible clouds and blue sky over the golden fields. The cyclist and the roadway makes a nice edge to the the pic.

Excellent image Pblo, strong colors and light and over all beautiful composition, I like the idea about the side roads and I find it interesting, well done, compliments.

Greetings Pablo.
I think the blue skys are just fine because you do such a fine job of capturing them. The well saturated sky helps push the clouds out of the frame as if 3d. The composition of the photo with the road leading up the left side and the lone figure walking along is excellent. Great shadows and light.

Hello Pablo,
I thought I had already made a comment to this one and today I realized that no :(
This is such a great natural scene woth the dark blue sky turning itslef cearer as our eyes go through the the photo. The cloids really ares stunning with their shapes cuting the sky. This road adds great depth to your photo and this persons gives it the csense of scale and height. Great colours and superb light management with clear areas and shadow areas contrasting so well.
A great photo indeed!

So much fun, Pablo! I love the scene and drama in the clouds. How fun to see such a powerful image!

hi pablo, is the color of the sky really like that at norway? the color is very dark blue at the top and gradually lighten a bit as it goes down the photo

Nice shot. The clouds are magnificent! Also like the inclined field, keeps the eye moving towards the girl on the road.

Hola Pablo.
Beautiful landscape with great colors and composition. Impressive sky and the man walking on the road give a nice touch to your shot. Good POV.
Well done.

what else can I say? Sorry, but i have to say in spanish... I cannot find the correct words in English, so, here is my coment:
Es increible el contraste que hay en el cielo, como va pasando de azul oscuro a celeste , y como las nubes ayudan a crear ese efecto!
Y el contraste con el pasto, amarillo, la textura, todo, es hermosa!
Congratulations for your achievement!!!
Saludos desde Buenos Aires, Paula.

Hi Pablo, a nice day to venture out to catch those wasome clouds. Nice title as the road is really by the side.

Wow, great capture of a beautiful day, nice choice on the polarizer as well. Great work!

Perfect mastery of exposure; I could'nt find a single sign of overexposure into dramatic clouds!
Admirably set up ; a few dark trees and sight of lady compose perspective. Pleasing golden hues and excellent saturation.

a beautiful view and amazing clouds- this reminds me of the Canadian prairies. The hiker walking into the blue yonder is a great touch.
I have not dropped off the face of the earth- just had a busy summer.
Have a great and sunny weekend.

Hi Pablo,

Another great looking landscape from you!
Those clouds look amazing, it feels like I can almost touch them. Colours and light are beautiful. And it's a nice idea to in clude the walker on the left.
The way you shot the road and the point of view is creating a lot of depth.
I like it very much, thanks for sharing this.

Greetings, Nel

a wonderul composition of the road the field and the clouds, which make it a fantastic ambience ! also the walker fits very well in the picture ! nice

Hello Pablo...

Great sky next to the yellow fields.
I like these "side roads" pics a lot.

I think it would be a great theme...
And i will have some pics to add there too..
Surely not like this one :-)

tfs and congrats

Wow! Hello Pablo! This picture it's realy amazing! The sky looks fantastic and colours are great! Excellent shot! Well done! Lili

Pozdrawiam serdecznie


C'est l'un des rares personnages que l'on voit sur vos photos. En général, je remarque que l'élément humain est toujours présent de façon indirecte (constructions, véhicules, panneaux ...) mais vous ne photographiez jamais les gens. Je trouve vos photos très belles mais cela leur donne aussi un aspect assez "froid". Qu'en pensez-vous ?

Hi Pablo,really a good work,the vcolors are fantastic and i like so much the POV too.The man on the road give to the image even more depth and beauty...Complimetsa nd thanks!

Hola Pablo.
Estos cielos siempre hacen de una foto todo un espectáculo, ¿no?.
Son muy vivos, muy expresivos y resultan muy atractivos.

Además, si a la línea del horizonte añadimos colores brillantes como el amarillo, si añadimos un camino (o carretera) que guía nuestra vista, y si también añadimos una figura humana: mejor que mejor.


Bonjour Pablo,
Ta composition a pour mois quelque chose de surréaliste : Un ciel magnifique qui, par sa couleur et son importance, écrase une chétive campagne et, complètement décalé un personnage qui marche sur une route déserte trop moderne pour s'intègrer dans le paysage.
A bientôt sur TE pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hi Pablo!
Another of your exceptional shots!
Perfect colors and light, and excellent sharpness. The cloudy sky offers a perfect contrast with the beautiful golden soil tones and the dark grey marginal road. I like your POV, very much!
TFS and best regards!


Wow that is a beautiful sky. I can bear those blue skies forever. The walker on the left is good, she really puts those towering clouds into perspective.



Hi Pablo - gorgeous sky, its all been said already, and such bright sunshine over golden fields, this almost looks like it was taken in Spain

The cloudscape is what really makes this image, Pablo, quite over-powering the lone figure walking on the road. Excellent contrast and DOF.

your thumnails always bring up one i havent seen and glad to see it..
obvious pola here but using the vaulting above in darker blue to stabilise and bounce back interest onto the land..
got to get one!!!
cheers boss

Hi Pablo, how do you get such amazing skys, the clouds look like there are going to jump out of the photo and float past me, I can smell the clean air from here! not too sure about the hiker, but I know that some people like to have the odd photo with someone in it as it can liven up a dull photo, but in ths case it could never have been a dull photo as it has enough good points to make it so very good. TFS

Magnifique bravo :-)))une reussite

Hello Pablo,
Nice capture - I especially like the sky and clouds, great contrast and colors. The sky contrasts well with the yellow field. Composition is good and including the road and person on the side adds to the scale.
TFS - Shir

I don't care about the blue sky.. just keep posting:) You've made the sky quite massive and interesting, and dramatic as well. The lines lead us nicely to the road and further in to the picture:)


Which lens are you using?

it's so superb! i'm so sorry that i miss seeing this one at the first time.it's very sharp and very great composition.nice color.especially,combination of deep blue and yellow feild.

There is a lot of emptiness/lonliness captured in most of the landscapes in your gallery and I think they are great. I think the single person in this photo takes away from that sensation. Maybe your were going for a sense of scale but I would like to see this image without the woman in it. Great colours, beautifully saturated and well composed though. Great shot.

Excellent POV with the gentle rolling highway and the harvested fileds to frame the beautiful sky above.

Hi Pablo
Maybe this is an optical illusion but it looks like the clouds are moving to the left, following the slope. I have the same camera and the same polarizer. They do a great job like this one. TFS
Happy New Year

Hi Pablo,
I can not afford to let this stunning photo of yours to escape my appreciation!

What a splendid sky!!! The polarizing has well done its work and that gives much relief to this superb landscape of countryside. The slightly saturated colors are very pleasant and the exposure to the light is perfect. Framing is excellent with this road on the left. A beautiful work, cheer Pablo.

Superb landscape, exactly the things I like most: a beautiful sky with fluffy clouds, a vast golden field, some trees and a lonely, peaceful country road. It gives me an intense feeling of freedom.

TFS and have a nice evening !


Hi Pablo!
Great picture with many good details!very sharp,nice colors,the clouds make an amazing contrast to the sky.Again very good depth because of the road.Thanks for sharing!

Hello Pablo!
What a fantastic composition with lovely colors making a good contrast to each other.
The sharpness couldn´t be better and you chose the right point of view.I like the depth here very much established by the road.
The clouds look fantastic...Did you use a Pol Circular here?

So,well done with this one!


Hello Pablo,
What a great sky you've captured here. With that woman walking on that hi way.
I like the colors especially the blue of the sky. Well done. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Pablo,

wonderful shot, incredible sky, colors are stunning! One of the best I've seen in your portfolio.



Rather than "side roads", this one looks more like "roads to heaven" thanks for this tremendous sky which occupies most of the image.

All the best,


Indeed I noticed you got stunning skies..(even with th POl)...
Great image this one pablo the infinity is here in thisd fab compo.

Hi Pablo,
Your photo offers us the beauty of this landscape, in a perfect composition with a light and a few really magnificent summer's colors.

Puffed clouds that really stand out of the blue and the golden-brown contrast. It sets a highlight. Good that you gave prominence to the sky what makes your shot even more impressive. Well done

Thanks for the critique btw this eatery is not in room but on the roadside. The smoke comes from some vendors of snacks over charcoals
