Thanks Chris. Was lucky to have great light in both places. Unfortunately had the flu in Marrakech, so was glad to come away with anything to be honest. Could only explore 30 mins away from the hotel before I was ready to collapse. The daft things you do to get photos
thank you mate, it is a lovely bit of glass, and it was a great, not to difficult walk as well. i did about 11 miles in total and three over 800m peaks so that was cool.Told you it was a nice lens Very good photograph and I guess good exercise as well. Congrats
what a lovely shot of a fantastic building, wow what a spot to liveAnother 5x4 frame shot in the village ( Sospel France)
Clear blue skies and brilliant sunshine are wonderful, however from a photography pov, the severe contrasts can be a p*g.
EDITED to add details:
300mm "Process" lens
F/11 1/60 with Green filter
HC-110 ( Mod54) 6 mins
Slight sharpening and minor curves adjustment ( to calm the highlights) in PSE

Cheers Nik,what a lovely shot of a fantastic building, wow what a spot to live
give us some careful updates if you get the chance, and avoid handcuffs! what so of place is it set in? on a hill with a view, or valley? loving the balcony's on each end, evening time with a beer watching the world go by while leaning on them pops into my headCheers Nik,
I'm going to make some enquiries as to its history as I think it may be part of the old hospital ( the new one is very close by, there again so is the fire station and the Gendarmerie)
Regardless of it being out of bounds to the public, I have discretely** attempted to find an entrance without success ( short of scaling a ladder to an open window) as I reckon there could be some interesting shots to be had inside.
**Discretely cos the rear of the Gendarmerie ( which houses quite a few gendarmes!!) looks directly out onto this building!
wow,what a spot thank you!OK to help you visualise the location(s) here's a few screen shots
Firstly a street scene showing distinctly the areas mentioned in my previous posts

then a wider image showing the village of Sospel and much of its suburbs including the area where I live which out to the NW

then to put it into perspective with the surrounding mountans, the area North is the parc of Mercantour ( in fact Sospel falls within that said parc).
To the S is the Med with Menton being on the Italien border and Nice, Antibes and Cannes being further W.
East is Italy, which is almost litterally a stones throw away from Sospel.
