Hi Christian.
So poetic and philosophical art work. I like impressive shapes and smoothness of passages of the delicate colours. Composition of the picture and framing are excellent. Thanks for sharing and best regards.

This is lovely Christian. It is a peaceful and beautiful abstract composition. The gradations of soft colors are lovely. Nice work.

Hi Christian!

I love this minimalistic landscape, maybe even drawn-like, but still natural! Gives a peaceful mood, and nice feelings... This time less gives more. TFS!

Best regards,

Hi Christian!
I haven't seen you around here for quite a while so it's nice suprise to see you back :)
This is a splendid shot!
The different shades of blue and purple are beautiful!
Very, very artistic.
Excellent work.
Well done,

Hello Taz, good to see your work again.
Artistic image mf. Elegant in its simplicity with the subtle visual cues, I like it...Of course if you're in the San Bernadino Mountains of California, this would look just like an average day of smog ;}
Very well done!

Hi Christian,

This is beautiful - really love the simple fading mountain layers and stunning colours. Great image!

Thanks, Doug

Hi Christian

Sorry for the big delay, but i had internet problems and i also left town today for a while :(

This is a very simple, elegant and delicate photo! I really really like it!
A true artist doest need more than a few curves to express his feelings and/or show beauty...and this is exactly the case here!
Very well seen and captured, my friend!

Bravo and TFS

Hi Christian

Nature sure has painted a stunning scene for you. Thank you my friend for taking the time to share this with us. I have been off line for a while as we recently had a devastating house fire. I don't know how long it will be before life returns to normal for us, but the important thing is that all my family are safe and well. I hope you enjoy Venice and take many photos with your Fujifilm S6500.

Hi Christian or should I say Hi stranger.

It is really nice to see a posting from you again. I just love and admire these rolling "layers" type of landscape photos. It is such a pity that we see so little of it on TrekNature.

The beautiful effect of the mountain tips displayed in these soft colour tones created an image that is remarkably pleasing on the visual senses. It radiates unconditional serenity and peacefulness while it exudes the ultimate beauty of nature. The contrasting shades that ranges from a darkish blue to a powdery blue and with a hint of gold seen in the brighter strip in the clouds gave this shot a "WOW" factor.

Very well done and TFS MF.

Hi Christian
hi art! So poetic, a magic moment this.
My best regards

Hi Christian

Love the picture. this would make a stunning print to hang on any wall. the colours are excellent, the composition shot on, with just enough detail coming through.

I hope you have enlarged and framed it!


Bonjour Christian,
How can I afford to miss this beautiful gift of nature! much appreciated for this stunning sharing with us!
I will stand there for hours to enjoy this view
many thanks once again

Hi Taz,
Gorgeous scenic capture very pleasing and tranquil to view, as if I'm there. Beautiful exposure showing the layers and depth of the mountains. TFS

Bon soir Christian
You live in a part of the world, which I both know well and love.

Am I correct, you photographed really early in the morning?

Beautiful scenery and atmosphere. Thanks for sharing.
I add your work to my theme "High Altitude"
