I wish you a happy, healthy and successful new year 2010!

Hi Matteo,

This is an excellent idea to combine a lizard with such a dramatic landscape. The use of the flash to lighten the foreground helps as well. Well seen and taken. May 2010 give you plenty of photographic opportunities.

Hello Mateo.
A wonderful shot of this lizard in a good pose on the rock. The sharpness is very good. Excellent natural colors, perfect background and a great composition.
Happy New Year to you and your family!
Best regards Siggi

Bonjour Matteo,
Une image si naturelle et intéressante montrant bien l'environnemement de ce petit lézard. J'aime bien ton angle de vue avec la pierre recouverte de lichen au premier plan et, un peu floue, la montagne à l'arrière-plan.
Bonne année
