Fantastique vue, des tons très doux, toutes ce montangens avec la brume traînante, cette bande de nuage, quelle vue sur les aples, fantastique.

Bravo et amitié


Hello Francis,

It is amazing that we can get shots, looking down on mountains, but when we do, WOW! This has incredible impact! The mountain peaks appear to jostle for position like the spines on a hedgehog!
I love how the mist is gathering in the valley, forming almost a diagonal. The tow snow-capped peaks, at opposing corners, add a left to right progression and a sense of balance.

My warmest regards,
Bev :-)

Hi Francis:
Amazing capture from the air...
very well captured all those peaks in layers...
very magical...
The window must be very clean:)

Merhaba Francis,
Mükemmel bir dağ manzarası.
dağ katmanları güzel bir derinlik oluşturmuş.

Hi Francis!
Fantastic aerial view! (This shot isn't unusual for you):)
The light and the splendid pastel colours and shades give great atmosphere to the scene.... the fog adds more mood. I like the soft details.
Watching this photo we can see the beauty and size of the Nature and the smallness of the man.
Congratulations Francis and have a good holiday!
Ciao! Vanda

Hello Francis :)

Beautiful, Alpine scenery from miraculous tops,
which fog covered, in gentle colours as well as light.
Admirable, showy composition.
I congratulate realization!

With best wishes.

Sorry missed this lovely shot from a great mountain chain, Francis!

I like the bird's eye-view of this great mountain chain where you share some nice details from this site. The sharpness and DOF are well done and you managed the well exposure here. The colors are nice and well shown.

This picture does have a potential artistic appeal even!


truly breathtaking scenery! Hard to achieve this kind of shot from airplane but you have done really well. Nice work!

Hello Francis Xavier,

Fantastic aerial view, incredible picture and very artistic.
Superb mysterious effect. Soft colors dragging like a veil of tulle.
Congratulations TFS. and beautiful day.
