[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The High Tatras mountains are situated in the northern part of Slovakia, on the border with Poland. In 1949 it was declared to be the first Slovak national park ( TANAP) and in 1993 it was together with the polish part of the Tatras mountains declared by the UNESCO to be the "Biospheric reservation of the Tatras".
The High Tatras were created about 60 mil. years ago heaving up the granite massif above the level of the surrounding land. It gained its current appearance by the glacier activity 2 mil. years ago. The characteristic peaks (such as Gerlachovský Peak, Kriváň, Rysy, Lomnický Peak), deep valleys of glacier origin ( Mengusovská Valley, The Grand and The Small Cold Valley), moraines and mountain lakes ( Štrbské Mountain Lake, Skalnaté Mountain Lake ) were formed the same way, too.

A HQ photo; the shadows of the clouds add a plus but on the other hand it is a bit boring because there are only mountains and clouds; the lake is interesting but shadowed. I think it was better to put a rucksack or a silhouette aside…

It practically look like a volcano out of activities! This is impressive panorama i,M not original to say that evidence :) I enjoy to see the shadow of those clouds who don't look that high from there! Look we can go so far away... No sign of habitation!

Having a look through your gallery Stefan, and was amazed by this photo.. there is so much of the world that we dont know about..this looks a stunning place.. Im wondering how you got up here.. hiking ? or helicopter maybe.. it looks so very very high up.. a very long walk. Your photo really shows the ruggedness and remoteness of the place.

Nice light and shadows captured here.

Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards
