[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Visiting an isolated hermitage high up in the hills of Eastern Spain i found the area at the back of the chapel at the top of the stairs from the hermitage itself an interesting and appropiate site for a 'photo in the fog'.The leaning tombstone, the only one to be found on the premises had this mystical ,(a bit of )a mysterious appearance in the engulfing fog and the ambiant light , so i chose this angle among and under some dripping trees for my composition.
F/8 at 1/160 ,iso 100 .The hermitage's name is Santuari de Montgrony in the foothills of the Pyrenees in Spain.
Hope you like it and would like to thank in advance those taking the time to give a critique ,

Bonjour Carol
Comme effet, c'est réussi! Il n'y manque que la main qui sort de terre et renverse la pierre!!
L'ajout du premier plan en silhouette apporte une grande finesse à l'ensemble.
Je devrai m'adonner au noir et blanc!
À la prochaine.

Without calibration ( remember ? ) I can say
a great shot Carol !
Print it and find a space in the house :-)

If you took others ( POV ) I would like to see them too !
