Hi Sascha,
Natur pur ... da hast Du ja ein idyllisches Plätzchen gefunden. Ich mag den tiefen POV (Mann o Mann, mir fallen schon die deutschen Begriffe nicht mehr ein ...) und die leuchtenden Farben. Außerdem herrliches Licht und ein guter Hintergrund.
Lieben Dank, ich wünsch' Dir einen schönen (Fußball???-) Abend
