I'll kick this off with this historic villa overlooking Lake Como. I added grain in post-production and happy that Alamy QC didn't have any issues! Have a great May everybody.

Getting through the many photos from a recent trip to Chile.  These from our stay in the wine region below the Andes foothills.  It was only 11.00am when we did the wine tasting - very decadent!

The setting was stupendous, next to huge waterfalls. Unfortunately, the swag was a pig to roll back and haul onto the roof rack, so we've since switched to a clever tent. Good idea that was to have a dress rehearsal before our 4x4 trip in remote wilderness in June!

This was a case of stop the car and run back up the road before the sun went in. It was a very bright house!!

Is there anything better to eat than fruit scones topped with clotted cream and jam?

A couple from my trip to Egypt in November. I'm still wading through my images - i've only got to day 2 so far!!

 

I guess you're going to be busy then. I went to Egypt for my honeymoon a decade ago... if only I knew about stock photography back then!!!
