Good Afternoon All!

I took this shot from the hills located in the vicinity of the Japanese city of Misasa.

I always find fascinating especially the scenarios in which the clouds float over the valleys, thereby giving a fantasy-like-look to the whole scene. On that nice day, it was no exception. There was fresh snowfall and the hills were hardly covered by the pure white snow.

I hope you enjoy the picture.

Hi Paras,
Light is the prime factor here in this marvelous landscape shot.
Beautiful soft ambient in this 'Japanese Fantasy'.
The village in the valley is just spot lighted and the fresh snow is reflecting to this glorious sunshine.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

Hi Paras,

I agree with you that capturing clouds clinging to the mountains and valleys is very interesting. The high POV you have chosen works very well for this. Inclusion of the foreground shrubbery gives a good sense of depth. TFS

Best regards,

It does look like a fantasyland and I can also feel the chill. Very nice capture with good tonal range. Great pov and dof with nice colors. Well done, tfs.

What a breathtaking view you have captured here! The mood is immense here and I love the chosen POV. The subtle tones and contrast is beautiful and evokes a feeling of calm and appreciation. Well done!

dear Paras,
a wonderful winter view shot of slight snowy mountains and valley,
the foggy air makes the view fantastic, and the white snow makes the scene beautiful,
the light feels rather warm, almost spring in this view,
thank you for your excellent shot,
