Your pictures are beautiful. I hope you'll be able to come back to the US and take even more!

Thanks for the kind words. To make a good shot needs also the great luck of "to-be-at-the-right-place-at-the-right-time". This includes also the luck of the "right" weather. This is one of this pictures where all fits. Beside it I made a lot of unusable stuff of course. In the USA I still used a analog camera and slides (diapositives), so a friend of mine had to scan it in digital type. By doing this maybe there are some nice side effects. Normally I don't treat the pictures - too much work :-)

It's also planned to come again to the USA. There are so fantastic landscapes with this incredible contrasts of colors. So, when we find the time of 3 or 4 weeks, we'll come back for sure. Vacations like this needs a certain space of time.

I can only agree with Eve, very beautiful, balanced and minimalistic (which makes it very special). Thanks for sharing. Lutz

Wow, wie schön. Ich mag diese Licht zwischen Wolken und Sonne. Eine echte "National Geographic" Ausnahme... Ciao, Andrea

Die ganze Gegend ist überwältigend.

Nice shot: by the composition and by the colors.

Greetings from Ravenna, Italy
