Hi Sergio

Marvellous warm cold colour contrasts, between the polarised blue sky, & the reddish tinted volcano. I think I see steam coming from the vent, too. Excellent sharpness & well framed & composed. Tfs!

Great place, beautiful mountains!

Hello Sergia,

An utterly beautiful shot of the dramatic landscape!
The colours are well saturated and the sharpness, equisite! I like how the composition moves the viewer through the shot with different, horizontal layers, of colours and textures.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Extraordinaire beauté!
Cette montagne avec ses flancs encore enneigés, qui déchire le ciel bleu lagon et,
