Hello all!

Here is one of my favourite photos taken in the "magic hour" around sunsetaweek ago, while I was up in the Transylvanian alps (Carpathian Mountains) with my fiancee and her parents.


I really like how the setting sun caught the colours of the sky, snow, different types and colour of trees, etc! (of course with just a little encouragement from photoshop to bring out the best!)

Your thoughts and comments will be appreciated!

Thanks.

Paul

Very pretty, PJ. The hills have a nice white blanket covering them.

Hi Tullio again!

Thanks for your comment. Yes, you're right, these are really hills, not mountains! :?

To me, sometimes the simple "unspectacular" photos have a simple beauty to them which is appreciatable too. That's what I liked about this photo I guess.

Again appreciate your remarks!

Paul

A very nice landscape Paul. This is the kind of pic that makes me want to see it in panorama.

Thanks for your kind comment VP. Unfortunately I didn't make a pana of that area ... maybe next time I'm there (but maybe by then the snow will be gone!) Btw, the photo above was at 100mm zoom on my Canon XT / 350d (=160mm) using the 28-135mm lens.

However I did make a fair few photos that evening (the sky was so nice and clear!) and a bit later than the photo above, I swapped lenses (to my 18-55mm kit lens) and took a wider angle photo (in a different direction) of an interesting cloud formation above the snow covered hills / mountains. So here below, is that photo ... I hope you like it too!

If you onlyhad the same light conditions to illuminatethe second one as the first. I'm not real fond of having to scroll sideways but I do like panoramas and wide angles of beautiful scenery. Thanks Paul.

VP - yeah, it got a bit dark (sky is nice, but too many details lost in the dark hills area).Still I thought it was an interesting catch of the sky... and subtle landscape. Sorry about sideways scrolling, I have my monitor at hi res (1280 x 1024) and sometimes I forget that for others it will mean scrolling). In future I'll try to make them a bit smaller (at least narrower!)

Sybbie, thanks for your comments!

All the best to both of you.

Paul
