The mist was coming up from the valley and threatening to obliterate the view of the awesome scenery, which it did shortly afterwards.

You live in a beautiful country.
The mist is temporary; the landscape is FOREVER!!!
And, you have "captured" it for posterity also FOREVER!!!
Greetings from Mario.

Hello Neels - "Landscape" one of my favourite Photography theme. Dramatic atmosphere, here. Excellent colour and perfect(to me) sharpness. This picture looks so beautiful due to its DOF, which is a "must" thing in Landscape. I like your composition where you have left a huge part, for mountain, which is the attractive subject here. Even the edges are well managed. IMHO, sky and right top corner side mist look overexposed. This why Graduated Neutral density filter is absolutely essential in mountain Photography. Although I don't have and sometime face such problem. Just simply ignore my comment if you are not agree with me. Thanks for sharing your work with us. Regards

Hello Neels,
the clouds sweeping across the scene add real atmosphere to a very dramatic mountain scape.
Very impressive.
Regards Les.

Hello Neels
A beautiful landscape indeed, with majestic mountains, deep crevices and even sedimentary rock layers. Exposure is a tad high near the top portion, but this can be fixed to some degree. Hope you don't mind, but I wanted to try and reduce the exposure in a WS.

An image that brought back a memory of a similar scene on the road leading out of Capetown towards the interior around Sir Lowry's Pass. I do think Ron's workshop gives your picture more drama, which it deserves.

Hello Neels,
I missed a while, during which time you posted some great images. This photo is also extremely interesting and has a perfect depth of field.

Hi Neels,

I like its original composition. The mist also adds to its interest. It looks like there will be million of warriors and horses rushing on this plateau start to flight. Great POV and DOF. Best regards
Merry Christmas

Hi Neels
Excellent picture, Mist is a great complement for a mountain landscape.
