Cool picture, I like that you took this picture with a person :D

Very nice landscape!


Snemann on November 3, 2008

Thanks, Thomas! Sometimes a person can at least add scale to a picture, and it seemed right to include a hiker in this one. Have a look at this one, where you can actually see two tents and several people in the full size pic.

Oh, yes. The winter is coming.

Not much to add to the titl really, except I like the colours and shapes of the sky finding echoes in the land (or vice versa. I assume this isn't taken out of the car window on the trans acrtic highway, so what sort of walking distances do you put in in the mountains? Graham

Interesting terrain. I'm glad you're an avaid hiker-outdoorsman or I would never get to see this part of the world. Thnaks you.

Hi Snemann, great scenery! I just came back from sunny autumn in Bulgaria and still can´t imagine, that winter will be back soon. Regards Jörg

Thanks for having a look, all of you. Graham; I usually don't cover a lot of ground, as hiking here often is cross-country in steep and rocky terrain. This particular hike was only about 4 miles, and around 400 m vertical. Most peaks here are at 700 - 1500 m, and can be reached in anything between 1 - 8 hours. The one in the background here is 1068 m.
