'and you probably don't want to hear tommorrow's another day,
and I promise you you'll see the sun again,
and you're asking me why pain's the only way to happiness,
and I promise you you'll see the sun agian."

Dido - See the Sun

This is a view across the lake at Stresa. I was taken by the very beautiful subtle pink sunset over the mountains. Not my normal image, but I hope you like it. Comments please :0) or :0(

Terrific, subtle sunset. It's easy to overwork the colours in PS, but this is spot on. Well done.

Ooooh, this is a bit moody isn't it? Very nice Ella and it's good to see you back at EPZ. You've been to some beaudiful (to quote Bernard Matthews) places. Just a little suggestion though - maybe you could crop the right a little, at the moment the mountain sloping down to the right kind of draws the eye out of the shot. I don't don't know, perhaps this is intentional as a lure to what might lie beyond? Thank you for all your lovely comments on my pics.


Does anyone get the Bernard Matthew's thing? This is perhaps more obscure than the Linda Barker one. I really do watch far too many adverts.

I think this is lovely ... I think the snow covered mountain adds that extra 'something' to an already beautiful image.

Thank you Pete, Ex (is that your real name!!), Roger, Jon, Carmen and Pete. Your comments are much appreciated.

Tom, I didn't even notice the mountain. I had another long look at it and think (may be wrong) that the focus is the snow covered mountains and the brightness from the sun and that this leads the eye into the centre, and that the mountain on the right is sort of incidental. Anyway, thanks for your comments as always. :0)

I think Bernard Matthew's goes back to the eigthies, I can't rememebr seeing any of his adverts recently. It's a real shame.

Thank you very much Mark. I like lyrics with photos as well. Mike and I are thinking of a project of 'doing' an album, a photo for each song.

Good exposure, aided by the cloud cover you managed to get a real balanced light across the whole scene. This I find really hard to get right, I always seem to have real under/over exposed sections.However, with this one, I can still even see the snow at the base of the big one!

Cracking and calming.
