OK. That's the first time I post here... And it makes me a bit nervous
Any C&C would be very helpful

welcome !! really like to 1st shot... i like the expanse, and how the eye travels from the foreground interest, all the way to the horizon with the rolling hills...
the 2nd shot is a wee bit dark, and your 3rd pic has a lot of visual interest... i like the 'path'...
perhaps if you cropped out just to the left of the 'path', it might add more focus to the path..
could you tell us where these pics were taken...

As in the title - San Vicente de la Barquera, tiny little town in Cantabria, Northern Spain. A couple of hours by train from Santander. Mountains on the 3rd picture are Picos de Europa.

You live in one of the most beautiful places I've seen!
The original plan was to visit Picos de Europa, but I didn't really make it - only to Potes, quite close, but not quite *up there*... Next time

Btw, I'm from Poland, but I do spend significantly more then 50% of my time in England
