Just returned from a wonderful time in the Pyrenees with a lot of great hikes like this one near the Pic du Midi d'Ossau. The whole day everything was covered in mist and clouds till suddenly a hole in the clouds revealed the mountain.
V2 was taken about 15 minutes earlier.
Many thanks for your kind comments on my bow series while I was away, and a special thank you to Jim (boov) for his much appreciated user award Smile

P.S. I don't seem to be able to upload V2 because of a "server error", so you'll have to take my word for it for the moment; I'll try again later.

Welcome back! I guess your return is the sign that summer is definitely over...
This is two worlds, in apparently close proximity. Green, fertile lowland, barren cold mountains. The way the lake meanders and the lines spread across the frame is beautiful, I'm not sure that it needs so much sky. Cropping off about 2/3 of the sky, to just above the lighter area immediately above the peak, works better for me, but it's personal. The cloud clinging to that peak seems to be the important one.

Welcome back, Rende! Just when we are about to disappear for a week Wink
The Pyrenees look utterly different from our mountains, far more so than do the Alps. Your words and image provide a total picture of a scene of stark and quiet beauty.
I look forward to the V2!

I find the foreground with the veins of water running out from the lake intriguing. This is such a beautiful landscape, truly representing your travels. Good to see you back, though.

Wonderfully jagged peaks and crags, a place to walk and recall for a long time.
Good to see you back with more good images I'm sure.
