A Haunted Place

By saltireblue    
Firstly, I would like to explain that I have hardly been on ePz the past two or three weeks, and have therefore not commented or voted on any images. I was having a few problems and not motivated to be here.
However, I am back now (stop groaning at the back!) and thought I'd present for you the view from my terrace a few days ago.
The day before we had 15cm of snow, but the temperature rose and most of the snow disappeared to be replaced by dense fog and drizzle. After a while, the wind picked up and this is the scene as the fog was being driven away by the wind. The scene is an area of forest that has been partially cleared.

Many thanks for the interest in my previous upload - appreciated as always.

Thanks for bothering.

Malc

The mono does wonders for the image, Malc. A rather stunning scene.
However, if the image were mine, which it isn't, I would've cropped away the tree's at the top of the image, which you haven't, as I find them distracting especially as there is quite a lot of brightness behind and around them.

"Just as well it's not yours then." I hear you say Wink

P.S. Yes okay, they need to be there to balance the image Blush

This is a most spectacular view---the wind and fog enhance
There is depth at the top left--leave it
The bright, pure whites and deep blacks also enhance

and I am wishing to see the colors--the greens in all their glory--
we get this weather sometimes---extra sweater weather---

This is not a scene that I would have chosen for mono treatment which says more about my resistance to mono that it does about the suitability of the shot. A very compelling, dramatic result.

Cold, dark mystery, a scene made for b&w. Nordic winter returns, watch out for trolls of the authentic kind.
This is fabulous and I'm clean out of UAs.

Late to the party again, but that really is a powerful image, Malc. Love the mono treatment. It must be one of the first shots on here with the new X-T3; it would be interesting to hear how you're liking it. Pleasure to give this an award. Allan

Nature in all its amazing glory. Those remaining uncleared foreground trees are an important element and they look so clear set against the fog.
et voila - mon pleasure Malc - all is forgivenTongue

Areas of forest that have been partially cleared are often quite ugly but you have shown here that with the right conditions a really beautiful image can result.

Heartiest congratulations good sir. Well deserved.
I was sure that I had commented as well as awarded. Oh well, doubtless indicative of my facility for hitting Pause instead of Enter, resulting in nothing whatever. I've got it right this time BlushBlushBlushBlushBlush

Do you also hold the record for the most UAs too? Looks like it. Smile

Many thanks, Chris!
I think the record for UAs is held by Lilian and one of her frog images, or perhaps one of the Camargue horses. I seem to remember it received well over 60 UAs!

I would have given this an award yesterday, except I was all out. I cannot do justice to most of the plaudits on here - just know that I think this is one of the most stunning images I've ever seen, from your portfolio or anyone else's.

Totally over the moon, gobsmacked, overwhelmed...you name it!
Never saw this as being worthy of so many awards. Thank you one and all. Special thanks to the team at ePz for the POTW. This has given me renewed belief in my photographic abilities.

What a great image Malc - and from your balcony too! You'll have to do what Leeming and Paterson did with the view from theirs... Congratulations on POTW and all those awards!
