As promised, here's another landscape shot. There were two things that appealed to me about this one: the structure of the vineyards in the background, and the shooting hut in the foreground.

That looks like an ancient Inca pyramid. How interesting.

Craig: pilot error. I thought I'd scheduled it for tomorrow evening, but got the date wrong. It will reappear at around 7pm tomorrow evening :-)

Also regarding the next pic, where have you shot this? Especially the next one (commenting doesnt work for some reason) impresses me a lot, this one seems to me a bit "unruhig" (too moving or how can I say?).
But anyway, I always watch your blog with big interest, since there is so much to learn in.
Best regards

As a German, I think you rather mean "Riesling" than "Reisling"... :-)

Really like this, especially the strong pattern and sense of geometry.

Philip: thanks, I've changed the spelling.

cool patterns.

Great tone, but I think it would be a better shot if you changed the angle a bit, so the roof of the building didnĀ“t blend in with the trees in the background. I like these landscapes.. have to go there some day.

great in so many ways, but what i like most is the shooting hut in the foreground with the tones of the overall image. as rural as this is, it has a classic modernist feel similar to photos from the 50's-60's of architecture in LA. i think so anyway.

Thanks all.

eterisk: you may well be right about the composition.

To me it looks like one of those high speed trains shooting out of the picture towards right.

I really like the toning and the lines in this shot. Well done!
