Travelled to Seville for a two-day conference. Took telephoto for birds, of course,
Is Seville a decent birding destination? I was supposed to be at a meeting there currently, but sent one of the people in my department instead. Had I gone, I'd likely have planned for architecture, not birds.
No, but you always live in hope. It's the thrill of the chase. Architecture you can always find, but birds are far more elusive. I have spent so much of my life traipsing around European cities, looking at buildings, going into art galleries and museums that I now go for Nature.
South of Sevilla there is a national park with many birds to spot. I marked this already on my todo list for visiting within the next years.

I think this one fills the bill

The place is stunning. It was my first time in the south of France and I can't wait to get back and explore more places like this. Antibes and Cannes, Saint-Tropez, the list goes on...

Here's a few of mine from last summer. I was in Germany, Switzerland, and Italy. I'm heading back to Italy this upcoming Fall, and I can't wait. Europe is a photographer's paradise.

These were shot on a 1DX2 and 5DsR combo. Both cameras were perfect for the trip and I wouldn't have traded them for anything.

Stunning, especially the first one of the staircase with what looks like a lot of wine surrounding it!

@R1-7D those are truly stunning - I mean absolutely gorgeous. Can I ask which village the third photo is? I assume somewhere in Switzerland?
I agree, great stuff R1. You clearly had a tripod and were taking your time to find those nice skies. I believe number 3 is Murren? 4 is Lucerne. It was mostly cloudy when I was in Switzerland.

Thank you! I really appreciate the nice comment. :) The village in the third photo is Laurterbrunnen, in Switzerland. I actually took that photo from a train. I was on a tour, coming back from Jungfraujoch, and the tour guide gave me access to an empty train car with windows that opened so I could take better photos. I was practically jumping from one side of the car to the other taking pictures of all the sights when our guide yelled at me that something special was coming up. This picture is the result. Unfortunately, I didn’t get chance to spend much time in the village; we had to catch a bus to get back to Zurich. It’s somewhere that I will have to get back to at some point.

Thank you, too. Only photo 5 of the Rialto Bridge was taken with the aid of a tripod. All the rest were handheld and on the go. Photo 2 was at the “Top of Europe” during the Jungfraujoch tour. We got incredibly lucky with the weather and sky; people warned us that the tour wouldn’t be worth it because it’s usually so clouded over at the top of the mountain. We lucked out; we could see right down into the valley with the glacier rounding the mountains.

Photo 3 is Laurterbrunnen, which we passed through on our way back to Zurich from the Jungfrau tour.

Photo 4 is indeed Lucerne.

What time of the year were you in Switzerland? We visited at the end of June and had terrific weather; in fact, it was a little too good and we had trouble with the sweltering heat.
