[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
On 19th of May we were in Slovakia in Chocske Vrchy (Velky Choc 1611m). It's about 150 km from my homecity Krakow, and about 50km beyond Polish-Slovakian border.
The highest summit in Chocske Vrchy is Velky Choc (1611m). It's really beautiful place. Because there were beautiful weather we could have seen many mountain ranges exactly all around. The highest part (Tatra mountain), Nizne Tatry, Wielka Fatra, Mała Fatra, Pilsko summit, Babia Gora summit and again Tatras mountains.
We started from Valaska Dubova (649m), went throung Stredna Polana (about 1200m), Velky Choc (1611m), Drapac (about 1200m), Zabralie and again Valaska Dubova.
Thanks for visiting.

Hi Maciej,

The distance between the mountain and the horizon is giving depth to the composition. «the point of view is showing the details and colors of the mountain in the foreground. Thew morning light has a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.
