[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Here it's a shot from the small country Andorra, located on the Pyrenees between Spain and France. The shot is taken somewhere nearby the custom-house with France. It was 10.00 in the morning, but there was already a long car-queue due to custom controls towards France (people use to go in Andorra to buy cigarettes, perfumes, High-tech products, jewels, etc. because of the absence of any sale-tax); Pyrenees'landscape are very different from Alps' ones which I know and apreciate: different morphology, geology, colours, light.
Because of the altitude, 2000 metre, it was quite usual to find yourself immersed in the clouds, like these cows.
PP. adjusted with levels and curves to get more drama.
hoping you'll like it,

Great photo. I like contrast between white foog and cows and green grass. Sharpness is good too.

Yes, I like it a lot.
The picture takes you there, that's a good sign. Composition is interesting , image split in half diagonally. Additional diagonals in the roads and the position of the cows, perpendicular.
Good light, excellent sharpness. Can go on the wall.

Now I recognize Andorra, from how I remember it from my tour by car to Spain in 1974. A very high and peaceful landscape. We also saw wild horses! Beautiful photo!

Wonderful view, misty dream.

So interesting Dario! Landscape with a supplement of cows is on my veins:) I have a very similar shot in the other extreme, near Monterrey in California, I'll search ... Fog is a very nice natural filter . Well done, thanks for sharing!
