Hi Anton
This is super wide landscape,
beautiful colors,nice clouds.


Dear Anton,
As a retired air craft pilot this photo has touched my senses.
Excellent clarity. Love the composition plus your notes, pov, dof, SHARPNESS, focus, colours, multiple frames.
Best regards,

Hello Anton,
Good examble of cirrus and cumulus clouds. Beautifully captured and very appealing picture. TFS.

Hello Anton,
I like the two different layers of clouds here, quite common during nice summer days in my place too!
Good textures in the sky, personally I might take out more polarizing effect but that is a matter of taste...
Nice framing with only a tad of ground!
