A mi chemin entre Sion et Martigny, c'est le berceau des abricots de valais sur la rives droite de la plaine du Rhône.

Belle journée

Hi Nicou,
Perfect POV towards the town. Everything looks very well exposed and sharp. The placement of the church and the curving road was a good choice, and the snowy mountains in the background with the surrounding clouds make this scene extra special. I'm most impressed by the quality, would make a great postcard.

Hello Nicolas
Beautiful view of this town, a lovely place to live :)

Nice balance composition, good clarity and sharpness edge to edge!


Wow, the Village de Saxon looks so beautiful through your lens, Nicolas!

I love the intense mood you always manage to capture in most of your shots, and that is why in my eyes you are recognized as one of the best photographer (on TL) who does wonderful landscape captures.

Perfect details, nice sharpness, perfect POV and very well shown colors. Well done!

A very sharp capture of this cityscape with a nice church and cemetary!
Great management in lighting and even exposure everywhere.

Bonjour Nicolas,

Merveilleux, les maisons de la vie et la maison des éternités,

Très bel ensemble avec à l'horizon des montagnes encore enneigées.

Hi Nicolas,

I know that for you, these are everday scenes, but for me they are very unusual and beautiful. You've nicely captured this small village and its vineyards. The clouds that partially obscure the mountains are wonderful as well. Superb sharpness and depth.

Best regards,

Bonjour Nicou

Très belle vue avec cette jolie petite église blanche sous le soleil!!
Belle composition avec,comme toujours,un excellent POV!
Bravo Nicou!

Hi Nicolas,
A splendid shot of this beautiful site with beautiful POV and wonderful DOF,very well managed in exposure and composition,lovely contrast colors with great sharpness and superb contrast tones,an elegant presentation my friend.
Best Wishes

Bonjour Nicolas,
Superbe prise de vue et présentation de ce village de Saxon, Très belle petite église et architecture,
jolies couleurs naturelles,
Excellent Point de vue et composition.
tous mes compliments

Bonjour Nicolas,

What a finely composed shot!
The winding road picks up the viewer, bottom right-hand corner, and leads him leisurely through the village, giving good opportunities to absorb the sharply captured buildings, before leaving him to enjoy the upper heights of the fruit slopes and the snow-capped mountains.
A good aperture choice keeps everything clear.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Bonjour Nicolas, there are so many details to appreciate in this shot.
The composition is excellent with the winding road taking us through the scene, plus the church spire pointing us to the distant mountains.
The light is well managed and the sharpness throughout the shot seems perfect on my screen.
Tfs, regards Jean.
