Hi Paula.
It is so nice that you are here again and have shared next wonderful picture. Lovely place, amazing POV and framing of the scenery. I am impressed with crisp sharp details of the trees and mountains, charming haze near mountain foot, fine lighting and impressive shadows, attractive sun beams on the mountain peaks. Bravo. Well done and kind regards.

Hi Paula,
Nice to hear from you! It has been a long time it seems. This is a beautiful winter scenery. Blue tones of colors are wonderful with good POV and exposure. Fog adds great mood to the picture. It's a huge mountain for sky and it looks cold indeed. Cheers,

Hello Paula,
A fine alpine scene taken in great lighting with the sun shining along the top of the ridge while the shaded valley has shrouds of mist and the row of spruces provide a great FG. Excellent composition and perspective.
I hope you had a good skiing holiday!

Hi Paula,
wow - that's fantastic, I love this silent mood here.
The fog is mystic - and the sunshine on the top of the mountains just wonderful.
A pretty post, thanks and greetings

Hello Paula,
Wonderful landscape image Paula, the low light sure does give it a cool feeling. The fog in the valley is a real bonus to this image, thank you for sharing.

Preciosa imagen llena de luz y bellos colores, bonito encuadre, saludos

Hi Paula,
well taken capture of a clear and sunny day in winter in one of our deeply cut Austrian valleys. I can feel the cold air resting in the valley bottom's in deep shadow, while there is a splendid view from the sunny peaks under a clear sky. What an incentive to leave the house and go up. Hope you enjoyed your stay in Austria!
With thanks, and best regards,

Hi Paula,
great view of mountains (my love). This blue colour is great. Thanks for sharing.
