Merhaba selahattin

A wonderful winterscape & judging by the deserted wooden table & chairs a more popular venue in summer. Excellent sharpness & contrast. Tfs!

Ciao Selahattin

I sketch a slight smile when I see
with these scenes for spring!
here is so colorful and full of flowers that
we lost with the seasons of the world.
