This page is unusual in crediting, and linking to, the sources of all of its photos, including the three shown here - sources that are well worth following up!

Many thanks (again) to Renaissance2007 (Julian) for this find.

One of many gorgeous photographs from Miguel Ángel de Arriba

Miguel's work includes nature, landscapes and portraits, and on his excellent site you can also enjoy good music to go along with the slide shows.

Thanks for this one, renaissance2007!
