Excellente image, HIGHTON! YSL je croyais qu'on voyait des nuages mais en fait c'est un paysage de collines, je pense?

Mark Highton Ridley on January 4, 2013

Thanks for your visit, Claudius. You are very close - the "sky" is a hillside covered in bushes. Well done :)

It does not even seem real

Thanks Rafael, mission accomplished ;) What looks like clouds are actually grassy bumps in a very uneven field. It adds to the dreamy quality, I think.
