[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
These are Karkonosze Mountains a part of Sudety. They are situated in West-South of Poland - about 400 km from my home city - Krakow. This photo was taken on the border between Poland and Czech Republic. But all this view is Czech Republic.
Last four days we spent in Karpacz in Sudety Mountains. I think, that I have never been there before. We had two mountain treks through Karkonosze.
On Friday the weather was beautiful apart from strong wind. On Saturday there was strong wind, a little of snow (but it was slippery - so sometimes we had some dangerous situations), and dense fog (so almost no photos from Saturday).
About Friday's trek. We started from Karpacz,went through Sowia Valley (Owl Valley), Sowia Pass (1164m), Srednia Kopa, Czarna Kopa(1411m), Sniezka (1602m - the highest peak of Czech Republic and Sudety Mountains), Slonecznik, Pielgrzymy, Polana Bronka Czecha and again to Karpacz.
Thanks for visiting.

Hello Maciek,
Very beautiful photo in a nice atmosphere. Excellent sharpness and a pleasing DOF. Fine composition.

Witaj Macku
teraz eksplorujesz Sudety! Piekny widok, swietnie uchwycone chmury wchodzace miedzy szczyty.

Hallo Maciek
What a magical view. I miss places like these around me. Here we have none and we have to drive 1000's of kilometres if we want to see views similar to these, or maybe not the same but a view that is untouched and unpolluted. Thanks for sharing this lovely "escape" from city life. Best regards.

Hello Maciej,
A beautiful landscape captured from an ideal POV and it shows a special atmosphere in a perfect composition. Well done!

Piękne morze mgieł nad kotliną jeleniogórską, takie zjawisko się dość często tam zdarza. Czasami można nawet zobaczyć swój cień na dole (widmo Brockenu).
