[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This picture was taken in Winter 2004 (but I think it will be possible to take such views soon...). Koscieliska Valley is located in Tatras Mountains near Zakopane - winter capital of Poland. I like to trek there in winter as well as in summer.

Text from zakopane-online.eu:
The nearly nine-kilometre long Koscieliska Valley is one of the most beautiful and well-known valleys of the Polish part of the Western Tatra Mountains. In the past the valley belonged to Koscielisko, the nearby village, hence its name. It used to be visited by treasure hunters and ore miners. Nowadays, it is the beauty of the Koscieliska Valley that attracts throngs of tourists every year, especially on warm days. In the lower and the middle parts of the Koscieliska Valley one can admire a lot of picturesque rock gates and limestone, whereas the upper part formed by the glacier differs in its shape and geological features.

Super POV, ladnie umiejscowiles strzeliste gory przy strzelistych drzewach, wszystko swietnie polukrowane.
