[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This picture was taken about 30 minutes before sunrise. The mood was quiet and the air was still, this mist was floating around. There was time to compose this shot with a tripod which was essential for this shot. The result was one of the best photgraphs that I have taken. The colours have not been altered - the image is as seen at 0545 in the morning before sunrise.

Excellent mood created by this picture. I like the composition of shaded areas versus lighted areas, the profile of the mountain is adding something contrasting with the ;ayer of fog staggering in the valey.
Very well done.

Wow! What a photo! I love the gorgeous rich shades of blue. Good composition.

"The colours have not been altered" Wow! that must have been a magical moment. Nature never ceases to amaze me. What a fantastic capture Colin. Well done.

What a stunning colours, you are very lucky to get such a great shot, well worth getting up for early ;-) The mist gives it a nice silky touch.

What an amazing scene! atmospheric and beautiful rolled into one.

bravo! very well done ! that pre dawn light does the job quite nicely!

I love these photos of the different colors of the Vinales. I think they would look so beautiful printed and framed as a set. Lovely blue color!

This is truly spectacular Colin. Its hard to believe these colours are real. I'm not doubting you...they are just so intense. You didn't use any filter on the camera? It is a fabulous shot in any case. Well done!

A very beautiful landscape shot! I love the color and composition of this shot. The mist really adds a surreal element to the photo. Love It!
