Hello Horia,
What a beautiful landscape scene you have posted today. The colors are simply gorgeous and the lighting is bright and clear, but not overexposed. I love the orange color the peak displays in the reflection as well as on the horizon. DOF is superb as everything is in fine focus. A real beauty for sure Horia!!!

Hello Horia
It is Fantastic.
A superb landscape.
Best Mountain Landscape.
Best wishes,

I endorse Peter's sentiments regarding your surprise return to TN after such a long time, Horia. You are one of the most missed members of this site.
This picture of a wintery landscape from your country is a sheer delight to watch. That peak illuminated red by the rays of the rising sun and reflected on water in the foreground is like a jewel in the crown.
We do hope you resume posting here on regular basis.
