Driving down the winding road from Arieseni (Apuseni Mountains), I was confronted by this beautiful image of the sun bedding down for the night.

I was fortunate I was able to stop the car to admire this fantastic view.
Live, looks always better.

Another perspective in TE.

Please look in to my WS too.

hi liliana!
this is so beautiful, excellent light and this gold colors, i like it.

Bonjour Liliana,
Beautiful picture nicely captured and composed with great colors and sharpness, I love the fog and the fence and beautiful sky very well done..

sunset always special for me.
whether it is sun or sky or land or sea which does the magic?
here along with them fog also adds the mystery.
really mystical.


Hello Liliana,

I prefer this one above the one on Trekearth, I don't know why...
Maybe the sun is a little to bright here, but for the rest this is very moody. It's like a sea of... of fog.

have a nice evening,


bonjour Liliana
Votre photo me fait rêver avec ces contours un peu flou et l'ensemble du thème qu'elle dégage.Tout simplement superbe.

Hi Liliana
I looked at all 3 and personal I like this best. It adds more elements and depth.
One has a better overview of what was happening and how it affected the area.
Thanks for taking the tiime to capture this moment and share.


Ciao Lili, splendida, non so se sia più bella questa o quella che hai postato su TE, sono due versioni meravigliose di uno spettacolo da favola, bello anche il WS, tre volte brava Lili, ti auguro uno splendido week end, ciao Silvio

This is a superb capture, the mist, low clouds, have a great deal in the mistique mood of this picture. The natural sepia tone is superb. The presentation in the black frame is outstanding!

How did I miss this one?? A stunning shot of this high meadow, nice details, I'll forgive the OE of the sun, because it's SUPER hard to avoid it! The light on the hills is just amazing, but I really like the light on the clouds!

Hi Liliana,
This is absolutely beautiful. It is a magical photo. Vey well done.

Hello Liliana,
Your title says it all... This IS a mystical photo, making us feel how overwhelmingly beautiful Earth (and Life) can be.
Excellent light metering, contrasts and composition. Do you use special equipment to protect your lens and to avoid "sun spots" on the photo itself?
TFS & kind regards,

Hello Lili,
The fine backlight really makes this image!
Wonderful atmosphere, and the scenery is well exposed to bring out the finer qualities in the haze...
A well balanced composition with sharp fine details!

Wonderful shot, so many elements to look at, all composed beautifully, with excellent lighting.


WOW ! Hi Lili !

Very sharp and very good quality.
Well done. Best regards, Daniel

Hi Lili,

Very nice shot. You got some good effects with the mist and the sun. I think I would be tempted to crop off some of the bottom just to leave the fence posts as the foreground. Good shot!

Just beautiful...
no need to say anything else.

hello Liliana,
a fantastic atmosphere of this amazing
capture where the sun and the fog give back the landscape like enchanter....

greetings sERGIO

Super atmosphere Lili, but what is most striking are the details on the line of trees in the middle of the picture and the feeling that you are on top of the world.


This is a very beautiful image Liliana with the sun settling on a bed of mist.

Regards Mark :)

Hello Liliana,
This is a wonderful capture! Well done...!

I like the way you can see both above and below the clouds as if above and under water. I've not seen this done so well before!

Mi se face dor de casa... :) Ador Apusenii!
