I hope you don't mind me continuing with my autumn series. I had a few good days out in these hills near where we live and managed quite a few nice images. The Messes mountains are a small set of hills that overlooks the town of Zalau in Salaj county, north-west Romania.

Hi Steve,
nope, don't mind at all mate. Can never get enough of this type of shot. This kind of scene will be gone all to soon. Once again amazing colour and light management, you have the knack of shooting in the forest which in my experience is not easy. Great work.

I can see that you had a good time that day. Fall just doesn't last long enough. I love the colors and the depth in this image. The only thing that bothers me, (maybe not others) is the skewed perspective due to the wide angle. All the trees tip toward the center. The trees can be skewed back to vertical with Photoshop or Photoshop Elements.

Hello Steve,
A lovely autumn mood has been captured!
Wonderfol colours in the foliage, and the tree trunks contrast nicely...
A well framed seasonal scenery!

Hi Steve

No, its great to see these interesteing landscapes from Romania, some very attractive countryside there. I must have a look on GoogleEarth to see wher you are in Romania, its such an exotic location for me.
Its a great landscape and well composed. As you know, nothing like this in Oz.


Hi Steve!

It looks as if the trees are all pointing to one spot. I like this effect of the perspetive and the natural alignement of the trees. The colors are also marvellous. Autumn is a great artist...

Kind regards


You make me wish I had taken even more pictures, but also through yours I realize there are other places as beautiful as this one..l.and perhaps the best known for me as a child in the Berkshires of Massachusetts. Soon these lovely colours shall be gone? Will you return to the sands of Oz? Well till then keep on trekking like this and we shall know the footsteps to follow in..


Hi Steve

What a wonderful autumn woodland picture. I love the colours and composition.

great POV as well.
