Morerirnha: Last View

By taggart  
Moreirinha: Last View

Just before we left Monsanto, Portugal, I shot this last view---the valley shrouded (almost) in pristine white fog, wildflowers in full bloom and Mt. Moreirinha standing out above and in front of the Serra da Estrella range.

A few hours car ride to Lisbon, and some 36 more hours via 3 airports, etc. LOL!

Home feels good!!!

I am posting today with the promise that I will stop by your PFS by the weekend. Thanks again for all kinds of support, interest and good wishes-- All added to the pleasure of the day!

To all lens / filter buffs-- please note--- this image was taken with a lens with a UV filter that was shoved ( banged) against a rock surface--- Today I will take it to a repair shop as the filter is cracked, I cannot get it off-- am hoping all is not lost-- It appears that the lens and camera survived! I did NOT edit out the lens flares-- ... ........ .........

And, LARGE******* is what it is*************

A beautiful sky, love the mountain top peeping above the mist, but what caught my eye is the wonderful foreground.
All those lovely rich colours & those little red flowers in the bottom right corner....

Not sure whether to class this as landscape or cloudscape, but it's very lovely. The layers created by the low cloud draw attention to the light on the summit but also to the foreground, as Hilary says.
Do I sense a tinge of nostalgia in the euphoria of returning home?
