Yes, you are right about the mix and that perception also goes for this area, a part of the first picture, but in another light

Wow. If I lived there, I'd spend all my time walking around, looking at the buildings.

The Barbarian,

Mostly I spend my time in deep forests or along the coast, with my dogs. But sometimes we walk in the city or in the harbour

While they stop to "read the local newspaper" by sniffing all arond, I get the chance to make some pictures

I stop when they stop and vice versa. It's mutual respect for other individuals' needs. Sometimes we take long walks at night. This is a picture of the Fortlet Crown, situated at the location where the overviews above were made

I don't think I'd ever feel bored in this city, Torgny : ) I should say I quite liked the point of view in #1 especially, leading the perception into the town down from the foreground...You really picked a good place for a postcard-like shot! Below is a version in which I intended to benefit from the subtle contralight flowing from righthandside. Hope you don't mind.

bahadir,

Thanks. Your tweak makes it even more evident where the light comes from. Could have looked that way two, three hours earlier that evening; with the light coming from another angle

By the way, this is a more representative overview over the town. It's called "Little London" not without a reason: the weather
