Hi again,

I went out one morning really early on to try and find some frosty fallen leaves as i needed a photo pf them for some other work and as luck had it, i reached a nice location just before the sun rose. I had enough time to go up on a hill, position my gear and wait for it to pop up from behind another hill that was to the east. The sunrise itself wasn't really spectacular as there were almost no clouds in the sky, but on the opposite sire there were these slopes with patches of trees that the sunlight hit the first and made the autumn colors really shine. Below them - where there was still shade - there was plenty of frost by the way, and that's what makes the ground so white :)
...of yes...and i did get my frost leaves picture :)

Hope you'll like it and thanks for visiting :)

Hi Horia,
That is a great compostion, my friend.

Congrats and TFS,

Buna Horia,
O imagine superba cu detalii si culori impresionante.
Interesant relieful din zona. Felicitari!

Hello Horia,
Amazing landscape! What a good idea to wake up early to capture this fantastic play of sunrise. I like very well the different layers, the contrast between the warm tones of the trees and the cold tones of green grass frosten. For sure, this photo will be so beautiful on big size, even as a poster! You show us the beauty of wild Roumania! Congratulations,

Hola Horia

Una buena composición otoñal en tres partes. Un buen POV.

Un saludo de Antonio

Dear Horia

I like this automnal landscape very much. It is very seasonal and it's a pleasure to look at the sunrays caressing the summits of the trees lighting a delightful firework. The composition with the different layers of forest and meadows is superb.

Kind regards

Compozitie perfecta, cu culori minunate!
Numai bine, Robert

Bonjour Horia,
Très beau paysage bien composé avec les différents plans, nettement identifiables par leur texture, et sous une très belle lumière faisant resplendir les couleurs.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Salut Horia
Au fost cateva zile frumoase si insorite si pe aici, inainte ca vantul sa scuture toti copacii de aceste extraordinare culori de toamna. Ceea ce imi place fioarte mult la imaginea asta, e combinatia intre portocaliul - rosu puternic al copacilor in primele raze de soare (culori calde) si campul inghetat, alb in nuante reci. Ai reusit o combinatie super! Iar compozitia...se cunoaste ca ai ochi pentru imaginin inedite

Numai bine

hello Horia,
The early morning light really brings out the colours of the trees in their autumn splendour. This, together with the composition of alternating frosty fields and the trees makes a fine image from your part of the world.
Thanks and kind regards MF,
