Hi dear TE friends

Place : Covadonga / Lake Enol

Theme: Trip to Peaks of Europe (VI)

Six years on TE - Member Since: 2006-12-05

Another birthday!...

Balance: 12.435 criticism given; workshops 134; 196 notes

As gift of my stay here in Trekearth for six years. I am pleased and honored to offer you this shot as a thank you for your friendship and nice words that have written. To all of you a bit all over the world my big THANK YOU.

Within the National Park of the Picos de Europe, the Lagos de Covadonga have become a myth.
Since Covadonga, twelve miles., By a winding road, one arrives at the Lagos and Enol The Ercina, 1070 and 1108 m. respectively.

A midway is the Mirador de la Reina, from where it provides a beautiful panorama. The serenity of its waters, the nearby summits, the mists and fogs form a landscape of the most suggestive, which justifies the legends that run over them.

For those who do not conform to hang out with their shores and enjoy the views so extraordinary that offers this beautiful spot, there are a number of scheduled routes with different lengths and difficulties that everyone can choose at their convenience.

I hope you like it, a big hug to all the friends of the TE.

Ola Filipe ;
Congratulations for your 6 years on Te !
A fine view of Lago Enol for the event . With anice asturian cow in the FG . For sure , the place would be more picturesque without the road , but on the other hand , every one can come here . And the LAgo de La Ercina is wilder .

Hello Filipe,
Wow ! What a scenery !Sharpness and clarity are perfect. Excellent composition with some lovely colors coupled with nice light management and presentation.Very well done.TFS.

I know your sensation after so many years...Hope you'd enjoyed them and the next ones to come.


Hi Filipe.
Congratulations on reaching your milestone of 6 years!
And an excellent landscape shot, complete with cow, people and bus on the winding road. Your exposure handled the bright, middle-of-the-day light very well, and the picture is very sharp.

Hello Filipe,

Nice place, Nice picture,

Greetings, Rudi

Bonjour Fillipe,

J'aime beaucoup la construction de cette image. La vache est parfaitement placée dans ce majestueux paysage. Les couleurs sont superbes.



Olá, amigo Filipe,
6 años aquí, compartiendo tu buen trabajo fotográfico con todos nosotros. Parabéns!!
Bonita foto del lago Enol, que me trae buenos recuerdos de cuando estuve allí.
La vaca en el primer plano es un elemento que atrae nuestra atención, pero que no impide apreciar la espléndida belleza natural de este paisaje, que has captado en todo su esplendor, en una imagen bien iluminada y con unos colores preciosos.
Un trabajo excelente, que espero disfrutar muchos años más.
Um abraço,
Pili e Josep

What a beautiful photo selected for this ocassion.
I like very much the light and colors so well saturated and yet natural. The cow makes a nice foreground. I like the curve of the road very well used here.
Excellent work!!

Bonjour, cher ami Filipe,
Six ans sur le site, cela mérite les félicitations. Toujours fidèle au poste et toujours sympathique en nous présentant des compositions qui nous permettent de nous échapper de notre train train quotidien.
Très bonne continuation.

Hola Filipe.
Lo primero felicitarte por estos 6 años en TE, regalandonos los fantasticos trabajos que nutren tu galeria.
Esta maravillosa y simpatica imagen es prueba de ello, el POV es sensacional con la vaca en primer plano y detras el lago que tiene un color precioso, las montañas como telon de fondo quedan esplendidas.
Un gran trabajo, con magnifica luminosidad y nitidez, el colorido es delicioso.
Pasa una buena noche.

Hello Filipe,

You're capturing well this pastoral landscape by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the green pasture, winding road and calm sea. Here looks as a peaceful place. The whole is harmonized well by some good objects. And, a cow draws out a good atmosphere in this image as well as the rocks in behind.

Kind regards,

Hello Flipe,
Accept my congratulations to your TE Aniversary. Great achievement. You are celebratin it with an excellent landscape photo and great sense of atmosphere. A photo can say so many things and this is always interesting to see the interesting content. I like the cow in the front not concerned about your photographing activity. I like the road with people and the bus behind and I love the nice blue lake with the mountains in the backgroud. All in all an excellent photo. Bravo!!

Hello Filipe,

Very nice surrounding.

The sky wasn't photogenic, so I like it that
you concentrated more at the landscape.
Composition and point of view are very good:
picture has a nice depth and is nice calmness.
Light management is also very good.
Cow on the forground is a nice extra: picture
can be used as a postcard.

Ciao Filipe
mi congratulo con te per questa bella fotografia che riprende un angolo di Spagna quasi del tutto sconosciuto.
Hai fatto una buona composizione di tutto rispetto, che unita alla nitidezza della ripresa ed ai colori calibrati a perfezione aiuta ad apprezzare un paesaggio nel quale il verde dei prati si spegne lentamente nell'azzurro del lago.
Un piccolo angolo di paradiso che ignoravo del tutto e che posso apprezzare grazie alla tua condivisione.
Ottime anche le tue note.
Ciao e buona giornata
