An informative note that explains the context. The Maori house is well placed in the frame offcentre. I like the pastel colours. Tfs!

I like the very scenic but rural setting and the puff of smoke coming from the thermal hole. The colours are great and the details sharp and as always your notes are very explanatory well done.

Very interesting and beautiful picture.
Excellent note, too
ps.The backlight effect of Netscape would've push up a bit the sky, I guess

Very nice composition of the house and surroundings. The clouds of steam are very interesting. Great color and detail. Interesting note too!

Nice subject for the theme Janice. This little cottage is a classic of the area. I like the layer of the foliage leading up to the skyline and the wisps of sulpharery steam are great.
How much??? I'm there! Love the look of this, the wonderful foliage! How nice Janice! I could live here, with an internet connection..B-) Very nice shot, love all the green with the white house in contrast.
What an amazing shot! Great colors and details. Was it straightforward getting there to take the photo, or did you have to tread carefully? I would never have imagined that people would wish to live where there are "hot thermal springs and hot bubbling mud pools." Very appropriate contribution to this week's theme. TFS.

Good evening Janice!
Nicely composed scenery with beautiful view at the house.
You captured fantastic different tones of green colours and interesting details of the house.The note is very informative and interesting.
Just wondering what that building is there on the right Janice...is that some kiwi Cultural Architecture too?
Nice kiwi colours, good sharpness, and interesting notes..

Good subject for the theme. Effectively some culture are not fortunate as others and the live in that kind of environment. At least, they live in nature. Nice simple composition, sharp but the dull light of the day washed out the colors. Nice participation to the friday theme. TFS.

Très intéressante contribution au thème du vendredi avec cette typique construction maori dans son environnement naturel.

Outstanding photo Janice, very fitting for the theme. Looks great from the POV you've chosen. The dense greenery really gives us an idea of how peaceful/spiritual this place is. The mud pools are real bonuses too.

This is a well balanced and well composed shot with the focal image sitting nicely in just the right spot; its colours also shout its presence.
The red decoration is interestingly tribal but, I must admit, I was a little disappointed to see corrugated roofing. I suppose the romantic in me wanted to see houses as described in your notes, but who wouldn't want to be more comfortable, in this day and age!
Have a great w/e,

I remember seeing many scenes like this when I drove round NZ, seems like months ago now.
Nice composition with the house well poitioned in the frame.

Delightful dwelling and hot springs. Interesting note. Nice pov and composition.
When you look at all the vegetation you sort of wonder how to they get there.
Interesting note and well captured building.
Lovely image here. Lovely detail. It looks a bit oversharpened for my taste and, looking at the WS, a little yellow. Which is more representative of the scene when you took this image? I can't tell if it was really that yellow because, to my North American eye, the WS looks more natural.
Love the steam detail. Great work.
