I love the cloud line
Seeing the valley under and the mountains..superb


This is really lovely Achim, because you still can see the valley through the clouds.
Excellent picture with of course the best possible POV.

Hello Achim,

This is both an unusual shot and a pleasing shot! The mountains capture your first impression but then, there is a curious veil under which a mysterious town is hiding.
It is not like the view from an aeroplane because the angle and the detail of the mountains is all wrong! It is a little surreal!

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Hi Achim
Good capture which suits the theme very well.
Have to find one for tomorrow aswell.
Regards from Jan

Absolutely SUPERB !! What to say !! I'm just looking at.


The bank of fog makes this image Achim. Nicely composed with the inclusion of the grass bottom left. Regardless of the fog fine detail in the township and the mountain beyond.

Hi Achim,
Very nice view, most unusual to be looking downwards through the mist, insted of upwards.
I presume that is the whole of Lichenstein, I know it is a very small country.

Halo Achim
Nur kurz

Hello Achim
Very original photo. The mist is just like a veil over the city and creates a diaphanous effect that is very interesting. Great vantage point and a beautiful composition with those mountains in the backgropund.
Well done

Ein fabelhaftiges atmosphere Achim,sehr gut gemacht.

Strange sight to look through the mist in the valley. So even when it looks misty there is always a bright sky above it.
Beautiful view

Hi Achim,
What an amazing view, the mist, the town, and the huge mountains. Great angle and lighting captured.

Excellent capture of the fog effect at beautiful velly.Nice soft and fogy light.
