I will look at your blog more often this year 🙂 I adore this one! Que tengas un lindo ano, Ron 🙂
Hola Paula, muchas gracias and no worries just do you´re great blogging and we will bump into each other now and then… 😉
Hope you have a great year as well, enjoy everything!
Nice shot with a beautiful sky. I think this picture could come out pretty good if you cut off the highest part from it as another variant. (Like getting 2 pics out of 1;) Too bad you had to use a high iso (or at least I guess you did?).
Hola Mbee, thanks for your stopping by, did use a high iso (800), cuz the colors would come out a little better i hoped and to keep it sharp, but thats very good advice on the cropping, i like the little plants on top of the wall, but the natural frame of the window is indeed a strong(er) photo too.
Thanks so much for your interest and keen eye, hope all is great, greetings from Spain and nice to meet ya 😉
Love the colors in this photo ! // Maria 🙂
Thanks, Maria, i was lucky to be visiting friends who live next to this view, so could wait around for the best time 😉
Thanks so much, Ray!
Great subject, composition, color . . . in short, great shot.
Thanks, disperser, very nice to hear you enjoyed this one! Greetings, Ron.
Crowned by tufts of nature. Astonishingly beautiful.
Hi Karen, so cool you noticed those, perfectly placed in my opinion too 😉
Thanks for taken time out to enjoy it and commenting!
Have a great weekend, Ron.
Thank you very much, Sil! Warm greetings from Spain, Ron.
Beautiful and so poignant-I do not know why, but it reminds me of the SPanish film “The Devil’s Backbone” -a most memorable image!
Hi Meg, thats very kind of you, love that movie, although pans labyrinth i like even better, some of the locations are similar and sometimes the same as where I like to go, and the atmosphere is definitely the same. Huge compliment as i consider the camera work in that movie to be very inspiring! Greetings, Ron.
Lovely shot! That is great sky and also really like the light, colours and textures you have caught inside the building as well.
Thanks, Noeline, was waiting for a ksy like this ever since i visit these friends who live next door to this ruin!
Thanks for your enhtousiasm, very much appreciated. All the best, Ron.
What a great photograph !!!! Love the mood!
Thanks a lot, Katrina! Your support is always very encouraging! All the best to you, Ron.
Thank you Ron
Gorgeous shot. Love the poignancy of the contrast, as a few others have already noted as well 😉 How lived in the building is, and how soft and virginal seems the sky.
Thanks so much, Lindsey. It´s so nice with this light you have the opportunity to expose both the sky and detailed wall nicely! Always intrigued by the fact that this used to be a school, but with only like 30 houses or so, there wouldnt be too much kids there in its days…
Have a great day, Ron.
Fabulous! Beauty in decay, fantastic contrast of textures with tithe ruin and the gentle sky! Totally my kind of image!
Muchas gracias, Sue! The composition i had in mind for years now, but as I´m there its all about enjoying the time with friends and going hiking and all, i was happy that i was on the terrace of my friends house when this sunset made my idea complete 😉
All the best, Ron.
Who would have thought ruins could be so beautiful.
Hi Angeline, if you leave em long enough they get prettier and prettier, i think 🙂
All the best, Ron.
What a beautiful shot of crumbling decay in the decaying light of day. Wonderful colours and textures.
Hi Seonaid, thanks. I liked the wall for a long time but I thought it needed a proper sky before it became a photograph 😉
All the best, Ron.
I love the rough textures of the ruined wall against the softness of the clouds.
Thank you, Karen! As I spent many days on the terrace with this wall next to me I could wait til this moment of fluffy clouds came along 😉
Thanks a lot, foster! Greetings, Ron.
This is truly beautiful.
I love the wonderful natural frame.
Hola Lisa, thanks, it was beggin for a photo and lucky enough i spent my time in this village in the house next to it, so i could wait til the sky was to my liking 🙂
You find (and wait for) the most astounding colors. The rusty ochres
against that range of blues and purples and into pinks is thrilling.
And of the building, so much melancholia in such things which were
a part of lives gone by, the plant life shooting up from the uppermost. And
maybe chiefest that your friends are in the Pyrenees and this is
close at hand, for all of you.
Hi Barbara, i feel and felt very fortunate these friends of mine introduced me to this part of the world. As a photographer and enthousiast about everything taken by nature slowly I was extra lucky i guess…
This is taken from a friends terrace where you have the most amazing views of sunset over the valley and just next to it is this old school, which he even owns, cuz his second house is on the other side of the school; wildest idea i heard so far is to eventually make some sort of open air movie theatre.
But I suppose the movies have to be really good if you don´t want viewers to be distracted 😉
Thanks for your enthousiasm, really great reads every time
All the best, Ron.
I have twice been enthused with the idea of an outdoor movie theatre and regret the first chance gone, and will try with the second possibility. It’s a brilliant idea, imagine out there (distracting scenery, you’re right) and I hope they do it. You seem to be in a kind of land that time forget, a land of such uproar and furies that the sun rises and sets on as if it never happened, all calmed down.
magnifique… RAR=rien à rajouter…
Gracias, Melanie, had to look that up, as the bit of French i had in highschool vanished while learning Spanish last couple of years, guess just so much space…
Oh wonderful. Love that delicate yet dramatic sky behind that craggy ruined wall.
Ha, learning lots of new English here, scruffy and craggy, guess they describe what i like too 😉
Nice coloured Sky and such a beautiful scruffy wall .Lovely Picture.
Thanks, Hanno, i love those old walls that are still standing after ages, but for how long more?
