It is really nice. And i like a beautiful title. "dark mood', but nice artistic work. Warm regards - Žaltys

ranssom on December 7, 2009

Žaltys the mood is dark , you are right. This photo was taken about a year after a fire that destroyed almost the whole mountain. Most of the forests were gone and the place looks really bad. Thank you for your warm comment :)

Best regards, Dimitris
