Beautiful colors Graham! Seems to be some fog around the mountain, that's nice!

greetings from Holland, Jasper

I hate to say it, Jasper but I rather suspect that the mistiness is smog, not fog - but let's be generous and settle on windblown dust particles - however I don't think it detracts from the lovely winter sunset - if anything it balances the clours out in the picture. Thanks for your comments - I still like the picture myself despite my fears about the fog - Graham.

You're right Graham, doesn't really matter what it is (fog, smog or dust), the picture is beautiful.

I have added your gallery to my favorites. I will be back to revisit.

Like to go for Holiday to South Africa this or next year maybe, and you have nice shots in your gallery. So I will watch them (again).

greetings Jasper

Excellent picture Graham and Warmest Greetings from Ireland Tom

Thanks Tom - I always try to add something of my own when faced with a classic scene, and I sometimes get lucky, like when this dog-walker popped up to finish the picture off. Graham

Really beautiful soft colours. one of those timeless moments on our beautiful planet captured!

Graham Hobbs on April 7, 2009

thanks so much for that W Steyn - I'd been there sevral years earlier in the summer when the colours were bright and strong (print film- take ages to find neg) and this was a nice scene - as you say, beautiful soft colours - but missing the final element tat made it a picture rather than just a great time and place to be - and this dog walker came along - I'm eternally grateful to him!

much appreciated Maria - it's a stunning view - the trick is not to make it look beautiful - it already does - but to try to find a fresh way to show it !
