Please don't tempt me...
I seriously need to head south for the sun.

Costa Tropical?
Since when did Costa coffee merge Tropicana? smile
John Prior: Now there's a thought, but I blame the travel agents and the marketing persons smile

Looks very agreeable John: given the ghastliness of our weather at the moment I seriously wish I was there!
John Prior: Thanks Chris, I agree, I don't mind extremes of weather, but really hate the boring grey, wet days, and we've had too many of these recently.
I wish it looked like this today. Strong wind blowing here and its very cold here on Costa Almeria.
John Prior: Thanks Sheila, sorry to hear all is not perfect in paradise smile

John Prior: Thanks Linda, roll on spring holidays, I don't trust summer smile

We[[ framed
John Prior: Thanks Vintage, I liked the palms.
Great shot , love the natural framing of the photograph. Well done !!
John Prior: Thank you Laurette.
Great use of the trees John, it looks a nice place to be away from our chilly January.
John Prior: Thanks Brian, yes quite a few people seem to stay over on half board for the winter months, probably not much more expensive than heating and eating at home.

John Prior: Thanks Eva, we had a great time there in October, everything seemed just right.
A fine picture you made of this John..Well done.

Yes, even in October, John, it looks so warm and inviting. The bark on those trees remind me very much of pineapples. Yummm...
John Prior: Thanks Beverly, every day was perfect, but not to hot to stop one doing plenty of walking and exploring.

I like how you chose to view it through the trees.
Beautiful composition with a nice depth between the palms (great details on them)...
Have a nice day.
