I believe my summer vacation has come to an end...i am finally back home!

It was a very nice and rewarding experience, in which i evolved moraly and profesionally and also made some very very good friends.

But now it's time to resume my life back in Romania...at least for one more year...

...but not before i get some good sleep and get back to the 10 hour difference :) Good night!

Hi Horia,
good to have you back, you have produced some beautiful images during your stay in the USA and i'm sure we'll see many more.
A very nice composition here, with beautiful colours and saturation in the sky. Have a good sleep my friend!

Hello Horia,
This is a wonderful goodbye to Nevada! Or maybe rather an Au Revoir...
Great sunset capture, well composed presentation with fine details...
I like how light reflects from the shimnmering water, the point of view works well and the sky is simply awesome!

Hi Horia

Welcome back - you have my sympathy over the jet-lag as I am currently battling the 9 hour time difference between the UK and Papua New Guinea.

Lovely composition with great tonal range. The clouds add a sense of movement.


Hi Horia
A pink sunset :-) I like it very much. I like the composition with tree on the left and structure of dark stones. Beautiful sky and very good exposure.
Best wishes

Hi Horia,
A very evocative image that suits pretty well a good bye!
I like very much your proposed composition, the mix of orange and blue tones on the sky are terrific, and all that silhouettes at the left side.
My compliments and thanks to post it.
Welcome back home, I'm willing to catch your new pic series.
Warm regards,

Great looking colors and an interesting sunset sky Horia.
I like the composition with tree and rocks in silhouette against the sky, but giving it plenty of room. It works for me!
Summer vacation..What's that? ;)

Hello Horia,
Great to see you back and with a beautiful sunset. I can imagine your feelings are a mixture of nostalgia and relief to be home again. This is a wonderful composition in fantastic colours. I like the black silhouettes of the pine trees and the rocks and the gentle ripples on the water.
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Hi Horia,
I hope that you got over your jet leg without too many problems. I know how big of a deal this sometimes can be. I also hope that you had a awesome time around lake Tahou and that you gained a lot of knowledge and a worthy experience.
Your goodbye photo to this area is a very beautiful one and has a wonderful tranquil mood. The setting sun has created marvelous colors in the sky and gave you a wonderful clarity. I really like the fact that the rocks and trees aren't black and still show some color. This, to me, is proof of perfect exposure. The composition and details are simply perfect.

Hi Horia,
welcome back.
this is a beautiful landscape wirh amazing colours.
WEll composed with a nice deep, fine details and nice lighting.
Well done, my friend.

Hi Horia,
If you ever get back to the US, come to the boring mid-west and look me up. Our scenery is not as beautiful as this though. Well composed scene. A beautiful sunset with the pastel colors in the clouds. Post card perfect shot. I love it.

Hi Horia,
Very beautiful AND PEACEFUL landscape. Nice warm colours and excellent details. Summer is ending soon but so many beautiful pictures to take...
