Hello Edwin,

Classic shot of a sea of mountains. Well spotted and captured. Nothing to do with the photo, but personnally , I prefer black framing in these type of shots; darkness being more appropriate at sunset to enhance the beauty of the photo colors.

Just a thought (^_^).

Hi Edwin,
Lovely layered shot. Love the almost mono-chromic colors here.

hello Edwin,
The shimmering layers of colour here are quite special.
I would agree with Robert about the use of a black border.
TFS, Joni

Hello Edwin,
this beautiful landscape.
Magnificent POV, with more in depth and with a superb range of beautiful colors.
My warm congratulations.
Have a pleasant Sunday,

P.S. Unfortunately I do not have smiley for today. I hope you do not mind.

Hi Edwin,
Back again! I'm happy to see your post which is awesome. Perfect light and shapes creating a wonderful view. Excellent idea well executed.

N.B. Nog steeds actief voor de KLC?

Hello Edwin,

Wonderful light, wonderful colours, blended together in a sandwich of increasing intensity.
I love it!!

Have a good day,
Bev :-)

Hoi Edwin,
Leuk om weer een foto van je te zien. En wat een foto. De verschillende lagen bergen in verschillende kleuren is echt prachtig. Het zoom effect heeft de bergen mooi weten samen te smelten. Het licht in deze foto is wel heel erg mooie en ik krijg zo het idee dat je na deze foto nog wel ff door het donker moest lopen. Of, stond de auto vlak achter je?

Hello Edwin,
Nice orange variation who increases the relief of this wonderful landscape.
Kind regards

Such a nice natural gradient of smooth color in this image. The different shades create tremendous depth and pull me further into the image. TFS
