    So beautiful Mamba!

    Why barns in the mountains? If you dont mind me asking!

  • Thanks swaby. they are used by mountain farmers to store hay and straw for their animals as well as other things. They are sometimes cleaned out and used by people as small holiday huts.

    Oh wow… I’m beaming myself there with a pair of skis on right now! I grew up in Austria on the Swiss border and adore the mountains, especially in winter. Beautiful image! All of your photographs are gorgeous. I also spent some time in Nigeria when I was younger, but live in Canada now. Visiting your gallery is a nice way to remember the beauty of places such as this one and Africa.

  • Many thanks indeed for your kind comments Verena. Canada must be beautiful for skiing too. I also miss Africa very much and can’t wait to return for a visit.

    What a picture, Mamba! I can only imagine what it must be like to live there!
