Beekeeping is a very popular hobby in this part of Slovakia.
That's one sweet hobby... hehe. Great application to the rule of thirds.

@Ken: Humorous comment. thank you, Ken.
you mean thats the bee house?
22 Mar 2008 6:03am
@dpm: Yes, for many different families of bees. Thank you, dpm.
I love bees and am glad to see that bee-keeping is cultivated in Slovakia as well. Where I live there is a bee-keeper, too. I like walking around in summer and hear the bees humming. What a wonderful sound.

@givethemhell: I agree it is a pleasing sound. Thank you, Eva.
Bees are essential for our planet, but I don't like them very much...Beautiful beehives in Slovakia!

@TILALA: Thank you, Marie.
its nice! and it seems like fall!

@Hoopand: It is winter but with no snow. thank you, Hoopand.
At first glance, I thought this was a pigeon loft. Lucky I am not a pigeon! I like your composition here . . nice balance.

@Ronnie 2¢: Thank you for the humor, Ronnie.
Ah man! I thought it was a mountain cabbin or something - just wanted to pack my stuff and head over their.... but I'll rather stay away now:) Awesome capture, excellent color and detail, as as said before, the composition is spot on!
22 Mar 2008 9:11am
@Ina: Thanks, Ina. As you mention, not the sort of place you want to get too near to.
Wonderful composition and I love the golden colors! Very nice shot!
22 Mar 2008 10:12am
@Betty: Thank you, Betty.
i thought it was a mountain cabin, but now i know it is for bees, ours are much smaller.

@pedro alexandre: Thank you, Pedro.
You took it at a wonderful angle enhances the compo and blends everything harmoniously :)
22 Mar 2008 11:43am
@Lorraine: Thank you, Lorraine. I like your positive remark.
I agree with Ina -- I was ready to pack my gear. I like the small range of tone and then that boxy feature to interrupt all the lines. Well seen.

@GJC: Many thanks, GJC.
excellent colors and framing

That is beautiful ,,,, I thought it was a cabin also.. Beautiful golden colors.... I saw mud and brick round ones in Kenya..
22 Mar 2008 12:57pm
@MJ: The ones in Kenya sound like they deserve photos. Thank you, MJ.
nice colors, like the fall effect.
22 Mar 2008 1:18pm
@alex centrella: Thank you, Alex. It is a winter shot although it looks fallish.
Wow this is really good! I've been learning about emphasis in art class. Love the emphasis on the bee house :)

@Elle: Thank you, Elle. That's a nice comment.
Hey, these bees live in luxury, love honey, not so keen on bees themselves. Nice colours. Here is a message I have written on my latest post, Just wondering folks, would it be possible to have a "what you look like day", lets say this Thursday 27th March, we could all post a photo of ourselves so we can see what we all look like, so we can put a face to a name. Let me know what you think.

@Peter Miller: Thank you, Peter. Posting an image Thursday is fine with me. It will be the same image I already have in my "about" section.
They look like a two-floors villa! The bees are privileged insects, they live elegantly and in harmony with nature! This is why their honey is so tasty! Moreover, in Japan there's a new trend, mainly among seniors, taking "Royal Gelly"....keeps people young!
22 Mar 2008 4:08pm
@Japanalia: Thanks, Gabriela. My father-in-law raises bees and regularly gives us Royal Jelly which is filled with nutrition and is usually fed to the Queen Bee.
nice work on the warm colors and rule of thirds!
22 Mar 2008 5:24pm
@Photographs by M.E.: Many thanks, M.E.

22 Mar 2008 6:37pm
@pLusOne: Thank you, P!.

22 Mar 2008 6:40pm
@Teresa Durães: Thank you, Teresa.
At first glance, I thought it was a cottage but I do not reserve for a stay! The color of the beehive falls well with hay, beautiful composition.

@vu@granby: Thank you, Gilles. Not such a good place for human habitation.
It does look like quite a large community for bees. Here's to the bees and the bee-keepers...may they live long and prosper! I'm a keen fan of honey on my morning toast.
22 Mar 2008 6:58pm
@Ron: Thank you, Ron. There are a number of families of bees living here. Honey on toast is wonderful, almost as nice as Marmite!
I first glance I thought they were mountain "Chalets". Great capture, i love the tones!
22 Mar 2008 9:26pm
@standley: Thank you, Standley.
well composed image. I wouldn't want to be stung by a bee.
23 Mar 2008 4:59am
@Rags: I agree. thank you, Rags.
Now that's a bee condo!!
23 Mar 2008 5:14pm
@amy: A sweet place to live. Thanks, Amy.
Are all the bees this year inside? In the Netherlands many bee-populations are disappeared. Nobody knows where they are. Nice comp. and colouring.
24 Mar 2008 9:33am
@the lightwriter: I heard there was a bee virus in Europe that destroyed many of the families. Here, the bees are starting to come out on warmer days. Thank you.
Ha, they look like condominiums on a hillside.
24 Mar 2008 10:30pm
@Oswegan: I agree. thank you, O.
25 Mar 2008 4:43am
@Twelvebit: Many thanks.
Nice gold colors, looks like a flat building for insects, I'm sure they'll be happy there!
25 Mar 2008 11:31am
@Illuci: Yes. The bees get well treated here. thank you, Erik.
Beautiful tones and an excellent composition, Michael.
