Must have been really frightening. Best wishes and hope you are sorted out soon.

Combined with a week of solid rain, high tide 15kms down the coast.

Happened at 9am. Good job it wasn't in the middle of the night.
Good luck and speedy recovery.

Has sido en Busch Gardens en Virginia, ValenciaSon? Viví allá cuando era niña (pues, en Virginia, no en el parque de atracciones).

Taken at the Correfoc at the Fiesta of the Virgen Del Carmen in Andratx July 16th. This is the "fire run" at the end of the evening after the statue of the Virgin has been paraded through the streets and out on one of the fishing boats to bless the fleet for the coming year.

El armiño - Stoat (Mustela erminea)

We got lucky, it was moving around within the rocks of a sea wall along the coast of Villaviciosa in Asturias.

Smile My photostream

Before starting the "photo of the week" challenge, i'd like to share my fav's pictures :

This is the Japenese Garden at Albert Kahn's Garden near Paris


Jardin Albert Kahn - Jardin japonais by puce576, on Flickr

This one is a typical old house in Severac-le-Chateau village. This village is located in Midi-Pyrénée Region in South of France, not far from Aubrac, well none for its meat and other kinds of good food


Séverac le Chateau by puce576, on Flickr

I suppose i don't need to tell you what this is ! :

These are strawberry tiramisus i did two years ago. At least, pictures can last !


Tiramisu aux fraises by puce576, on Flickr

If you need some directions...


Au milieu de nulle part by puce576, on Flickr

Adult picture !


Microcosmos by puce576, on Flickr

Me encantan tus fotos y su gran variedad.. a mi, cada una parece a una pequeñísima joya.
En cuanto a tu adivinanza....es obvio que hay agua que está corriendo rapidísimo abajo pero ¿es hielo encima? No sé.

well I guess I'm just going to have to send this little message in order to thank you for posting that amazing serendipitous shot because every time I simply try to add my name to those who've already "thanked you" (...by clicking on the thumbs up icon)....the icon simply disappears....and my name never gets added.
Hmmmmm......no funciona esto: ()
But again.....Thanks

This is quite timely, as this forum is going to end. We have started a photo blog. at the time of writing there are about 100 photos but loads will be added over the coming months. We hope you enjoy them.
