    Always nice collection when we talk about photo! In special way the beach…the most beautiful place in the world for me… So good photos. Thanks!

  • Wow, seriously amazing work by these photographers. I was on the blog a few days ago as I’m looking at getting into Macro and you had some amazing shots there. Decided to do a bit more looking around today and found these. I thought I could take an OK landscape shot….. I’ve just been shown I really can’t…. stunning photography to everyone whose work is here!

    You can barley find any trees near the sea cause they die due to saltiness, how come there are trees in the 23.
    Great photos, made the 23 my background.

    Excellent natural photos. Though she can be fickle, nature the most exquisite of subjects. I am looking forward to painting landscapes based a bit on Paolo Gomes’ lovely beachfront perspective. Thanks for sharing the world with us.
