Bom dia John,
This is the portrait of a beautiful morning. Artificial or not the nature embodies and creates scenarios like this, that you captured properly.

Hi John

I don't know if the sun was rising or setting but, in my opinion, the sun is very slightly too high and overpowers the image. I like the composition but I wonder what it would look like warmed a little. There is some dirt just above the tree line extreme left.

The water appear to be snowy. Yes the sun is bright


Joli point de vue, j'aime beaucoup cette lumière matinale ainsi que le cadrage.
Belle scène hivernale. Il y a quelque chose de magique.
Cette ambiance bleutée me plaît.

Hi John,

At first sight it looks beautiful - I always love the misty mornings (or was it evening?) - and I think the pov is quite wel chosen, making an excellent composition, but then I discovered little "spats" in the sky and trees, it is a little bit of a pity... But anyway it makes me wanting to visit there once.


Hello John,
Very nice landscape you captured.
Good and hard work with the sun on background. Well done!
