Excellent gray table in a mysterious and perhaps a little sad and melancholy too! Great focus on the composition. I would like to see the whole thing! I have to do it twice and it distracts me Frances! Best regards, Adela

Good evening, Frances,
it is a very interesting looking picture. The viewing angle is excellent. The choice of color conveys the general view, the touch of a winter landscape. I like it very much. It is a very stylish picture. 5 Stars ***** Have a nice evening and all the best. Thanks for all your nice comments. Dear greetings Christel

3 Aug 2010 5:07pm

@Christel: Thanks Christel, it is the middle of winter here, so the fennel have dried and gone to seed. I liked the idea of walking through this avenue of dried fennel and the aroma was beautiful. Enjoy your day:)
