these are most beautiful destinations one would like to visit. I am sure there are thousands as beautiful places on the earth which are not yet seen the light of the day. Even if am not able to go to all these places ,looking at these photographs one’s mind gets submerged into the peace and serenity that oozes out from them. Great and thanks.
As usual, stunning images! Thanks Dusky.
Images attendrissantes avec les animaux,étonnantes avec les arbres et meerveilleuses avec tous les paysages.Merci
So many places to go, such wonders to see. Places and sights I never knew existed. Dusky: thank you for posting this beautiful tour.
Esta colección de fotos,mas las de los árboles,son magnificas;es como si me fuera de mi escritorio y vagara con la imaginación por esos lugares paradisíacos.Mucho le agradeceré si me quiere enviar otros que yo no conozca.Para mi,éste fue el primero,no conocía este lugar.
Thanks for all the wonderful pictures
The captions DO NOT match the pictures. They’re beautiful, but if you want me to want to go to these places for a dream vacation, it would be nice to know what and where these pictures are of . Thanks for your attention and keep these DELIGHTFUL PICTURES coming!
I would also love to be able to pinpoint where every one of these places is, and also tell who the photographer is. Alas, I only know what I find on a site and if I love an image I pass it along even without the info that would help.
Très intéressant comme article !
