[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
After a bit of a hiatus I'm back and hope to post more photos in the near future. This one is near the summit of what is locally known as the "First Pump" along the Mt. Seymour ridge north of Vancouver, BC Canada.
This is looking down towards Vancouver from a rather cold and windy summit.

Hi Tim.
it's an incredible view of this valley. It looks like a dream. Beautiful colours, composition, sharpness.
Sorry, but I can't give You any points today, because I'm out of them today. I'm looking forward to seeing Your next landscapes,

Fantastic landscape wit powerful colors and stunning impact Tim! Bravo!

So that's what heaven looks like looking down upon the Earth. Beautifully captured Tim. :)

Hi tim,

A beautiful lanscape view you have presented with great composition. "Heaven on earth". TFS.


Hallo Tim
This is an absolute dreamlike image, an escape from reality. All I can imagine heaven would look like is here. The light in the image is magic, the colours is just so lovely to look at, the rays of the sun ever so beautiful.....ahh this is just such an awesome and pretty, perfect, picture. I have not seen one of these for such a long time, and now you have filled the void. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Hi Tim,welcome back,it has been quite the long time.I see from this image you have been busy photoing landscapes during your hiatus and well if this photo is what the shapes of things to come are for future uploads,well I just can't wait to see more.I like the clear air and light that this photo shows and the point of view used.The light looks warm even though that really isn't the case with the wind you speak of,it was well worth going up the summit to make the capture.I can't see anything about this image that requires critiquing as you have nailed it beautifully with excellent sharpness and colour and I think you are your own best critic anyhow.Thanks for sharing and once again welcome back.


What an amazing view. This is really nice.


Hi Tim,
Gorgeous landscape, fantastic sunset image in the golden hour. Excellent sharpness, plenty of details (even the snow crystals are visible), the composition's perfect - and the view is simply magnificent. Aesthetic, pleasant, even magic image. Bravo.
Best regards from Hungary (Central Europe), László

Hello Tim,
Incredible image to say the least, the overall composition is stunning to look at!!! The detail, color and exposure is exceptional. Well done!!

Hi Tim,

Great landscape of consisting of the snowy mountains and beautiful sun light. The effect of sunrays penetrating the clouds.

Thank you for sharing.


Holy cow! What an entrance! Unbelievable bland and skyscape. It is so surreal. Looks like something out of a high tech movie. I am on my iPad right now but tomorrow I am coming back and making this my net book wallpaper. Simply super.

Hello Tim!
Amazing sunset. Wonderful mountains. Excellent landscape. Superb Winter scenery.
Fine lightness and brightness.
Good exposure and capture. Marvelous work. Splendid effect.
Well done!
