Beautiful collection, Valerie! Each is a unique scenery, especially the last one with the deep blu sky :) Reminds me of nipa huts beside the beach. Have a blessed weekend :)

Wonderful shots Val ..

Lea, The houses are known as trulli houses made of dry stone. They were constructed as temporary field shelters and storehouses but are now permanent dwellings.

Brian, maybe the climbers were round the other side of the tree ...smiles.

Pearl, it was quite lovely wandering through a village full of these houses, with tiny lanes threading through.

Bellissima, Valerie!

Love them all, but the one of the tree really caught my eye!

And I love the lighting in third one. Just lovely!

Happy Sunday, dear lady!

Ciao....X

Hi Ron. Yes, isn't that tree fabulous? I can just imagine the uproar if ever the decision was made to cut it down. It must be hundreds of years old. Happy Sunday.

Oh wow...... What an awesome tree! Makes ya wonder how long that ones been hanging around--and oh the stories it could tell.

The huts are adorable with their decorated roofs!

Great pics! Is that a banyan tree in the second snap?

What an interesting tree in that second shot! Lovely photos, Val. I rather enjoy seeing all the places you post about.

Valerie said...

Jimmy, that tree is proving to be very popular, I imagine it has been photographed hundreds of times .... smiles.

Herman, I don't know. I've heard the Banyan is a huge tree so maybe it is.
