Smoking valley

By saltireblue    
Firstly, apologies for clicking and running the past few days - have spent most of the weekend restoring my laptop to its formal glorious state after a major breakdown in the system. I do have Time Machine back-up, but that was part of the problem, so couldn't be used. Lost loads of notes, bookmarks and all keywords in Bridge.Sad
Hopefully, normal service is now resumed.

This image was taken at the same time as the previous upload, pan left from the church and this is what you see...this is looking straight down the valley towards the fjord, which is invisible in this scene thanks to the weather...

Many thanks for all who looked at, commented and voted on and awarded my previous effort - much appreciated.

Thanks for bothering.

Excellent image Malc, that Time Machine back-up seems to have given you a shot of Birmingham from
the 1920's, only minus the chimneys Smile

Super b&w landscape Malc.
Perhaps just lift the foreground shadow area just touch to reveal more detail there?

This is the view, but not as I know it. The light reflecting off the roads really stands out.

Goodness, a Norwegian apocalypse? Seriously, the layering is enviable and the high contrast gives a very dramatic finished scene.

A very dramatic image. Me being me, I'd love to see the colour version.

Sorry to hear of your techno nightmare but glad it has been resolved.

A super misty landscape, with the trees and buildings making fleeting appearances out of the mist.

So sorry to hear your laptop's been poorly 😢 It is very time-consuming when you have to reload everything, same as when you buy a new machine, you don't realise just how much work is involved when you get started.
What another stunning shot here though - must be viewed large! Sorry, but just have to give you another Award... 🏆👍😃

A most appealing mono image that leaves the viewer a wide perspective of your imagination, and such a good eye for a good composition. Beautiful work Malc. Isabel GrinGrin

Reminds me of my long gone pipe smoking days. Well do I remember the billowing clouds and pungent aroma of St. Botolph's 'Nutty Slack'. Deep joy!
A gorgeous image young Malcolm. 😀
First job tomorrow - back ups!
