Beautiful, and “best” is fitting, Cindy.
Michael, thanks. Merry Christmas to you and your family!

Hard to choose which one, but I’m drawn to the one of Flagstaff as the blue mountains in the distance remind me of the blue hills around the area I grew up in.
Thanks, Ian, for the vote! They are lulling and drive whatever stress weighs on my shoulders. I suspect your blue hills in Australia do, too. 🙂
A Difficult choice. If I must, I go for 7
Hi Derrick. It was surreal in the basement of the Alcazar with the gold reflection on the pool of water. That’s for the vote.
The ones of Seville are outstanding for me.
Thank you, Fraggle. What a special city.
They are all good but the one that stands out for me is ‘The Alcázar of Seville basement’
Thanks, Andrew. I bet your photos of Alcazar are breathtaking. I sure hope I can return and see the other fascinating regions like you!
I think the Alcazar basement look like an oil painting, so crosses genres for me, in a good way.
As a photo, I like the hotel stairs best.
Best wishes, Pete. x
Thanks, Pete. Stairs do it for me. I love to get lost in the spirals.
Cindy, this isn’t fair at all! Every time I said, “oh, this is the one” then another followed – they are all beautiful – what a year of great imagery! Happy holidays and here’s to a great 2018!
Thank you for the nice compliment, John. All my best to you and your family. Happy Holidays!
I am afraid Johnrieber took and used my comment before I had a chance to. Such beauty. Such an eye. And I love the change of pace with your Hotel Steps, Barcelona.
Hi Don, thanks! I think the stair well is my favorite too.
Stunning photos, Cindy! It’s number 7 for me. Wishing you and your family all the blessings of Christmas!!!
Rafael, thank you for voting. Best wishes to you and your family, too! Merry Christmas.
what’s in the “madrid delectables”? Looks good!
Mozzarella with a glaze and peppers and spices. It looks like marshmallow with chocolates and candies, eh?
Sometimes a picture of food looks like vomit; the Madrid culinary chefs made food look like art.
You are a true artist, Cindy. I love your photography and admire so very much.
Vinnieh, you are a kind gentleman. Thank you for the fine compliment.
Well I believe in praising others and being supportive. Plus, you deserve it.
4, 7, and 10
Hi, Bill. Thanks for voting for 4. I liked the mosaic bridge cutting across the green pool and stately palace.
Numbers 7 and 10 are my favorites.
Hi Allen. Thanks! I find it interesting that people are drawn to the same ones which tell me lot about the shot and the subject matter. Thanks!
These are some amazing shots! My favourites have to be numbers 5 and 7.
Thank you for picking 5. I get dizzy looking at the symmetry.
Very tricky but I’m going to go No. 4. It just makes me feel like I’m there.
Difficult to choose between 4 and 7. But they are all great. I love the Gaudi too.
I thank you, Inese. Happy New Year.
What gorgeous shots! A nice compendium of your 2017 photography. Tough choice, but I think the Plaza de España bridge in Seville is my favorite.
Speaking of roundups, I posted my annual “Top 10 Movies of 2017.” I’d love to hear your thoughts: https://fastfilmreviews.com/my-top-10-movies-for-2017/
Thank you, Mark!
It has to be 7 for me… so atmospheric. They are all lovely though!
Hi Abbi, thanks for your vote. Makes me look forward to May to see what they’ll do.
