Hello Saeed,
An amazing land/cloudscape, the orange sky complementing the greenery in the FG with the clouds in between.
Here at Mazichal it must be quite high with the clouds below you.
Thanks for sharing this my friend,

Hi Saeed,
Yes looks like a dream.Well seen and composed.Colors,POV,lighting,exposure and framing are wonderful.Excellent work!
Thanks for posting.

amazing cloud formation below dark/orange sky. Beautifull view. I think it could be better cropped- without the green foreground- there is not much details and just disturb the composition.

Splendido paesaggio di uno spettacolare fenomeno che si vede piů facilmente da un aereo, in questo caso gli alberi in primo piano rendono speciale questa immagine, ho osservato anch'io questo fenomeno in montagna, ma mai cosě bello, meravigliosi i colori. Grazie e complimenti. Ciao Maurizio

Wonderful picture, this is surely a dream place for me..fantastic landscape..

By using a s/w called Net Image, you can remove noise/ grains at the base of the picture.(green part)

Hello Saeed,
This is a truly fabulous composition showing the dramatic cloud formations below a lovely orange sky and with the green trees in the foreground. Excellent DOF and beautiful colours.
Many thanks and regards, Ulla

This is superb, Saeed, a great use of polarizer and beautiful work of art. The colours are stunning and the beautiful movement of the clouds is quite impressive and dream=like. Thank you!


The only thing I don't like from this capture, is the fact that I was not there to enjoy this scenary with all my senses.
Outstanding view and excellent capture, my sincere congratulations.

Hello Saeed,
Amazing view on this cloud-formation with hills and valleys. I never have seen fog like this in our mountain regions (it looks a lot more flat). Beautiful colour-layers from the foreground to the back and excellent composition. A very original shot. I really like it!
Take care

Hi Saeed, superb composition with fantastic sky and wonderful clouds, splendid colors, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hello Saeed

A lovely capture,it looks magical.
Wonderful colours.
The detail is terrific.
Excellent pov.


Hi dear Saeed,
I don't believe my eyes, my Friend. This is the most fantastic "down-to-the-clouds-from-the-mountain-top" type photo I've ever seen in my life. Awesome colors, composition, clouds. I can't even find the right words to tell how I love this shot.
I don't agree with 'Arjun', on his WS the greenery became too blurry without details.
Big congrats, and of course, tfs. Best wishes from Hungary, László

bonjour saeed
magnifique paysage,j'adore cette couche nuageuse vue du dessus et toutes les couleurs qui compose cette photo.

Hi Saeed!

Yur picture is surprising, mysterious and intriguing. As a photographer, I would like to knoe if it's natural or if and with which amount you have postprocessed the image or used filters. As a lover of nature I just want to look at it and free my feelings and dreams. Anyway, it's a great pleasure to dive into your world of dreams...

Kind regards


Hi Saeed,
I like to go to Mazichal! a magic place, cloud on this valley looks superb, like a dream. Unfortunately I live in a plain and I can´t appreciate such view from clouds top.

Hi Saeed,
You must be very high up here.
Amazing colours and cloud formation.
Very attractive Scenery

This looks like something from the fairytales! Amazing shot.

Hello Saeed. I am amazed by the puffy image of the cloud. It looks more like from the plane than on the ground. Beautiful changing hues with the orange sky at the backdrop. A bit saturated with pixel-blur in the foreground but the image looks dreamy still. Well done and best regards. Jusni

I wish that visiting this area your shot like a dream ! well done

Hi Saeed,
I don't know why I missed out on this picture. This one is even more extraordinary than others you presented on the shore of the Caspi sea. I think you do it like the great landscape photographer Ansel Adams, you wait for the MAGIC MOMENT, and if it takes weeks. Look at this bright light near you, and at the dark "shores" elsewhere, and the glowing sky and and.. My highest praise goes to you for this image, Saeed.
Best regards

Amazing photo. I a very impressed about the photo.
