I could have chosen the title " Colors, light and reflections ", but this one was imperative, because it is my 2500th post on TE and my 10 years (with 3 days of delay)...
Much fewer participants on this site, but a nice atmosphere, and always so interesting to discover new images, new places, new notes.

Here, passing by Punta de Galdar's small roads, I took advantage of a puddle after a big rain, to get these reflections at the ground level, under a light of thunderstorm.

J'aurais pu mettre en titre "Couleurs, lumière et reflets", mais celui-ci s'imposait, puisque il s'agit de mon 2500ème post sur TE et de mes 10 ans (avec 3 jours de retard)...
Beaucoup moins de participants sur ce site, mais une ambiance sympathique, et toujours aussi intéressant de découvrir de nouvelles images, de nouveaux endroits , de nouvelles notes.

Ici, en passant par les petites routes de Punta de Galdar, j'ai profité d'une flaque d'eau après une grosse pluie, pour capter ces reflets au ras du sol, sous cette lumière d'orage.

Ciao Denis, congratulations for your 2500th ppst on TE and thanks for all your beautiful photo, fascinating nocturne shoot with fantastic reflections, excellent exposure, splendid light and wonderful colors very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Bonjour Denis,
very impressive picture, great selection for this amazing anniversary. In fact I had a similar age here, I was celebrating two months ago but with many fewer photos uploaded.

Your gallery is clearly one of the best on TrekEarth Denis. I am always looking at your photos with great admiration as example I would like to follow someday.

Brilliant picture here with such colorful houses in fantastic light and with dark background... The reflection enhances the effect even more.

Excellent work!!!

Hello, Denis!

Congratulations for the 10 years on TE, and for the 2500 photos, that's really a lot of posts I'm far from reaching! I like the strong colors of the houses and their reflection on the calm water! Excellent light and sharpness! Wonderful job!

Bonjour Denis

Typique de ton style, un rayon de soleil filtrant qui avive les couleurs juste avant l'orage. Tu résistes malgré les défections sur ce site qui est maintenant moins intéressant et moins suivi; je n'ai pas trouvé mieux non plus.
Bravo pour ta persévérance

De magnifiques contrastes de couleurs et de superbes reflets!
Très beau que les maisons et leurs reflets sont entourés des trois côtés par cette couleur bleu foncé.

Ciao Denis
un risultato molto importante, la media è molto alta, 250 foto ogni anno, fantastico.
Festeggi con una foto che porta la tua firma, ottima qualità, eccellente taglio e fatastici colori.
Complimenti Carlo

Hello Denis,
Congratulations on your double jubilee. This photo follows your characteristic style perfectly. I hardly know anyone on the site who finds so many bright colours everywhere and uses them so well without oversaturating them. I think your trick is usually to bring out the warm tones by darkening the pictures, which I have also found is the best way to give the colours a stronger impact. I just don't do it as cleverly as you.
Kind regards,

  • Great

Quel effet de reflet et vue à ras l'eau quelle vue et captage fantastique reflet de cet ensemble de maisons de diverses tons et couleur grandiose compo éblouissante.
Bravo et amitié

Hi Denis,
Wow what a super image you have captured so well, love the colours and of course the reflections in the puddle.
Well done on your 2500th post.

Hi Denis
I didn't realize you had posted THAT many photos on TE, thats quite the accomplishment. Do you plan on posting 2500 more? I hope so, time will tell.

Always enjoy viewing your shots, you seem to only capture your scenes in the warmest of light.

another example of that here, love the strong contrasts, the mirror reflections, and the brooding grey skyline. wonderful atmosphere for dramatic effect. cheers

Hello Denis,

No wonder you chose this as an anniversary/memorable photograph, for it is a beautiful scene and captured with such clarity and lively colours.
The receding line of the buildings creates a fine sense of perspective but is stunning when duplicated in the reflection.
Congratulations for your tenth anniversary and on the beauty of this photograph.

Bev :-)

Hello Denis,
Cordial congratulations to your 10th year at TE as well as to your 2500th post !
The capture itself does not need much words; it's absolutely one of the "best"s I've seen here at TE; with it's photographical qualifications and nice eyecatching colors and perfect sharpness.
TFS and best regards

Bonjour Denis,
Congratulations on reaching 2500 photos on TE just after your tenth anniversary, great timing. Also for this photo, the right was marvellous and the well-saturated colours of the houses contrast perfectly with the dark clouds. The reflections are amazing too of course.

Bonjour Denis,

First of all, congratulations on your ten years of TE membership during which time you have enriched the site with a plethora of beautiful and technically excellent photographs gleaned from your travels at home and abroad, each image always accompanied by an interesting and informative note.

You have a wonderful ability to seek out the best light wherever you travel, either by choosing to shoot in early morning or evening or during dramatic weather - as in the case of this stunning photograph where the low angled sunlight illuminates these colourful buildings against a dark sky while our enjoyment is doubled by the glorious reflections in the calm water beneath.


Congratulations once again!



Hi Denis
Congrats on your 10th..
Enchanting scene with all the houses are painted in bright cheerful colours under dark grey sky creating a remarkable strong contrast. This is further strengthened by gorgeous water reflections. Indeed an eye-catching picture illustrating a colourful glimpse of a part of town. Impressive shot, Congrats
Best Wishes

Hello Denis,
Congratulations with number 2500. Incredible. I hope TE will exist long enough for me to reach that number too. Fortunately there are still enough diehards to continue with the site and now and then some new active members join us.
You selected a splendid picture for this occasion with bright colours with special dark background and a gorgeous reflection.
I hope to see many more.
Have a nice day, groet Rob

Bonsoir Denis,

Bravo pour tes 10 ans sur TE, les reflets sur l.eau sont des atouts à la composition. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails des immeubles colorés. La lumière met en valeur la beauté des couleurs. Bonne soirée.

Hello Denis,

Congratulations on your 2500th! And thank you for sticking with TE through good times and bad. An apt shot to upload, with fantastic symmetrical reflections in the mirror like water. Tfs!

Hi Denis,
I love this light! bright sunshine against very dark and stormy clouds. And orange paint on those buildings gives the strongest possible contrast. Congratulations!
