[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
High in the hills of the Beskydy is this tiny village-resort named Pustevny , in fact a series of late-nineteenth-century timber-slat buildings designed by architect Dusan Jurkovic including two fantastic hotels whose facades are seen here, a ski lift is nearby , a picturesque trail heads out i km to a huge statue of Radegast , the mountain's legendary pagan god ( who incidently lends his name to the famous local beer ) another 2 kms lead you to a chapel at the summit of Radhost for some fine views of the surrounding countryside . Cropped , corrected verticals , played a little with curves ,slightly increased saturation of colors , sharpened and framed,
iso 100 , f/5.6 , 1/125 on an overcast day ,
Thank you for looking,

Hi Carol,

The architecture and colours are splendid.

I particularly like the two-plane perspective.

Nice image.

Hi Carol
Very nice photo,sharp with a lot of colours


Hey! Hola amigo!!
What a nice observation here Carol. Such interesting architecture and details .. and the colors ... oh my, can you imagine being the one that has to paint that?!?!
Great eye on your part to see this, and capture it. I like the shine of the sky reflections in the windows.
Nice job my friend.
You stayed home this weekend?
