Hej Mita!
Tack för din fina kommentar på min blogg.Ja, havet är speciellt.
Du har en hel del nya bilder jag inte sett förut.Gillar dina gatubilder från UK 2007.Fyllda med stämning och fina och vackra detaljer.Man kan nästan som kliva in i fotot.Det är inte riktigt min starkaste sida och därför uppskattar jag att se dina vackra gatubilder speciellt mycket. Alla dina bilder är underbara och fortsätter vara det hur många gånger man än sett dem.
Ha en fin kväll och en mysig och stämningsfull 1:a advent!/Kram Karin
Karin Wennerhult 01-Oct-2009 18:28
Hej Mita!
Nu har jag suttit en lång stund i detta galleriet och bara njutit av dina vackra bilder och vyer.Känner mig priviligerad som får ta del av dem, tack!Det är så avkopplande att sitta och titta på dem.Du inspirerar mig så för mitt eget fotande ska du veta. Kameran har legat nere ett halvår pga datorstrul och fulla minneskort, men nu äntligen har vi skaffat ny dator, så nu tömmer jag minneskort, bränner foton och ska ut och ta nya :-). Du kan tro jag har haft abstinens efter kameran!!:-)...och bankat frustrerat på datorn, haha! Önskar dig en riktigt skön och avkopplande helg!***Karin/Livsluft***

A very nice set of galleries with a professionnal quality
Mark Elert14-Jun-2007 23:46
Hej Marita! Kul att se dina bilder. Jag gillar idén att ha gallerier i olika färger. Jag gjorde ett rött&oranget, men sen har det inte hunnit bli något mer, Du har också många fina bilder med kvälls- och morgonljus. Det svenska (och även andra) landskap gör sig väl i det. Du lyckas också få till väldigt "koncentrerade" bilder. Det gillar jag.
Lycka till
Mark

Good afternoon from Athens!
This picture was my favorite because of the incredible sunset colours I experienced in KAtrineholm, and in other places, during my 11 days visit there. I had an unexpectingly wonderful time in your country, and I am hoping to get a job in the near future, and move permanently in whatever city I can. I like this country so much, that I would like to spend my whole life there..! Regardless of that, I will start searching for an MBA postgraduate programme from a university, so that I could have a more easy transitional phase to the society... These are my thoughts for such a lovely country that Sweden really is.

Take care,
I hope to hear your news soon...

Guest 18-Jan-2006 15:57
Greetings Marita, and thanks for your nice comments on my Burgundy gallery.

To answer your questions:

http://www.pbase.com/image/44250771: This is the castle photo you asked about, which is called Le Château de Joux and is located in the Haute Jura region of France. The castle is over 1000 years old and is worth a tour if you are ever in the region (inside there's an enormous well, which must be over sixty meters deep), and the Michelin Guide 'Burgundy/Jura has a good section on it. There is a very good road that leads to the entrance.

http://www.pbase.com/image/54831631: The image of a small castle in the village of Commarin, Côte d'Or. Actually, it's a private residence (our children attend the same school) restored to look like a castle. I don't think the tower is original construction, but I'll try to find out more.

Warm Regards
Mike

Marita,

thank you for visting and for your comments. I have looked into your galleries and I must say I'm impressed, especially by your winter photography and the pictures from Sweden. I like your B&W too. I have been in Sweden a couple of times, although never in winter. I like Sweden a lot and your pictures are a refreshment of my memories. Thanks.
