there were lights embedded in the earth covered with leaves and soil like hidden treasures among the twisted roots of trees…in the darkness you could see the changing fall colors and find those little pieces of yourself that needed nurturing…

(NB : ***Tunisia is safe to travel everywhere, tourists wanted !*** … Just heard it again on the radio : lots of families are depending on tourism to survive and the industry is not doing as well as the other years, so here I tell it again : this beautiful country is as safe (or more) as Europe, its inhabitants are great and the hotels infrastructure for each budget is well developed, on the coast as well as in the deserts… it’s time to discover it, while there are no hoards of tourists !)
This is the old Médenine : despite the traffic jams in the centre, there are still some pockets with this strange very ancient mud architecture (fortified granaries, closed by a gate or ksour = plural of "ksar") which has remained unchanged for centuries ; originally each family had its own granary to store cereals etc, forming "ghorfas", …but this area being in the centre, I have been told that nowadays some people are even living inside these small rooms ! Temperature inside is wonderfully cool.
I prefer this photo in b/w, in the comments you can see colours and some old photos as well.

Santorini is a small, circular archipelago of volcanic islands located in the southern Aegean Sea. It lies 200 km southeast from Greece’s mainland. It is also known as Thera or Thira, forming the southernmost member of the Cyclades group of islands.
Santorini is essentially what remains of an enormous volcanic explosion, destroying the earliest settlements on what was formerly a single island, and leading to the creation of the current geological caldera.The volcano is still active, and the last eruption was in 1950, causing an earthquake that destroyed many villages on the island.
Its spectacular physical beauty, along with a dynamic nightlife, have made the island one of Europe’s tourist hotspots.
Camera Model: Nikon D300 , Lens’s focal length: 18-200 mm , Photo Focal length: 18mm, Aperture: f 8, 3 exposures bracketed and processed in Photomatix ISO: 200
High Dynamic Range (HDR) is a digital imaging technique that allows for a greater dynamic range of luminance between the light and dark areas of a scene.
It works by combining multiple images that have been identically composed but using a different shutter speed for each image. This will give you a range of images that are darker and lighter than the basic exposure. As a result this ensure that you have extra highlight and shadow detail which allowed for the church to retain it’s detail.
There are various HDR software programmes out there but I have been using Photomatix.
