beautiful simple scene with so much to offer, from the interesting flock to the colorful layers in the far background. Good work Pierre! Very artistic one!

Hello Heimann,

Hope you are doing fine. What a splendid, panoramic view, my friend! The sweep of the scene is amazing.In the foreground among grasses and stubble fields the cranes are feeding/resting then is the river caught in the shallows and sandbars, we have fields again dotted with a few bare trees....after that perhaps a road and last of all, wrapped in the haze of the February morning sun, the mountains majestic and remote. Marvellous! I am impressed, for your artistry is amazing too. Thanks a lot for sharing.....take care.....warmest regards/Abid

Very interesting image with so many layers, different in color and atmosphere, well captured. tfs.

Hi Pierre,
I really like this type of photo where you combine wildlife with the landscape. It compliments both and creates a strong overall photo. Yours is particulary beautiful due to the layered landscape and the gradient look created by the mist.


P.S. Pity that there was a bus riding in the distance. :)

Hallo Pierre,
a fantastic capture in a very beautiful landscape, excellent point of view and vertical composition
Best regards

Hello Pierre,

Thank You.

Hi, Pierre
This is a very original image, with artistic visualization and execution. The perspective compression effect of a telephoto lens, combined with the portrait format and careful composition, has produced a beautiful result. Many thanks for this,

Hi Pierre.
You have selected a simply brilliant subject. Welcome vertical orientation of the picture so much. Scene on the FG is so attractive as a scene of the BG. Bravo. Well done.
