Nice view.

Good photo with great depth, very nice colors and light.

I love the view with the fresh snow.

So, this one deserves one star more than the previous. But you risked a lot. Today it's hard to attract SPers attention ;-)

Re: Improved picture

Sper's attention is only part of the reason why I resubmitted. This is my favourite picture and I simply was annoyed each time I saw it here. I had posted it on my first day on SP, not knowing about the blurring_while_reducing_the_size algorhythm :-(

Hadn't you seen it before Sasha? It had been around for more than a year. I thought I had read a comment by you on the old version. Well, now it is deleted and I have a new comment by you so all is well again ;-)

Re: Improved picture

It seams I forgot that I’ve seen it before. So, it didn't fail to delight me again! ;-)

I can understand easily why you consider this wonder as your favourite picture

Re: Improved picture

Gracias. I only wish I had already had a digital camera at the time. The digitalization is far less than perfect. But I used ISO 400 film at the time - stupid me!

Yosemite a la Dolomites

On first glance this scene reminded me of Yosemite Valley in the Sierras of California. However Yosemite's precipices are granite while the Dolomites are limestone. Both offer classical first-rate rock climbing. Snow hardly ever accumulates on the floor of Yosemite Valley while it gets quite deep in the ski resorts around Cortina. A great well-composed picture.

Packing it in

I find it amazing how much is going on within the picture. Such contemporaneous complextiy, so many different features, colour, and again the depth. Must have been a great experience.

Incredible image! I love the clouds; I love the way the imaged is composed to draw the viewer right into it. Well done! I'll bet Ansel Adams would be delighted (he hated bald skies).

Re: Incredible!

Thanks Mark! It's one of my favourites though at the day I was quite disappointed. We had come to climb nearby Piz Boè but the clouds soon covered the top so that we turned round on this little summit, Zwischenkofel. The view is not as famous as some others of the Dolomites but you regularly see it in climbing magazines.

Very nice.

Dolomites - my popular region. Nice. God light.
