Valley of Mists

By Jasper87  
Something a little different. Mono! This was originally a 3 shot stitched landscape panorama but there was a large block of dark trees in the bottom left and too much light mist top right so it was cropped quite a bit. That made the balance wrong so cropped at the top to bring it back to panorama proportions!

The location is a valley in Slovenia in the foothills of the Julian Alps.

Yep, tripod was deployed again!

Utterly gorgeous. Combination of things - the falling rays of light, the receding layers of ridges, their individual dark tops rising above the mist. And the individual plumes of smoke, marking where people's homes are in all of this.

Not forgetting the valley beyond. Nor the next. Nor the subsequent valleys, as far as the eye can see. This is simply staggeringly beautiful, Dave.
