I find these big mountain vistas difficult to do well. Seems these things come easily to you. Very well done Herman. TG

Why would anyone sneer at this? They are lovely images and it is winter with you right now. On second thoughts this is EPZ and there is often someone around who is happy to sneer!

Seriously, I can see why it is called Misty Mountain with that bluish haze. A lovely place beautifully captured.

Lovely capture, wonderful backdrop, I met a young South African lady on holiday last year and one of the things she said was that she had never seen snow, which I found fascinating. South Africa is a place we have on our bucket list.

Magnificent scenery, Herman. I particularly like V2 for the contrasts in scale between the mountains and the small building.

Good luck with the snow!

V2 is the one that appeals to me most, beautiful scenery in both though. I'd like to have seen a bit more space beneath the little house, but can see how difficult that might have been.

Now that is a really big picture Herman, the contrast of the cows set against the mountains is quite spectacular.

Thank you for your wonderful comment on my 'For Critique Only' very much appreciated.
