malahat from Iran

so nice... romantic sky

19 Jan 2008 7:17am

@malahat: Thank you malahat!
You are right, this is romantic.
This picture is a pause from snow.
Can you feel the warm autumn breeze ?

By the way,
welcome in am3, you are a gifted photographer.


Thank you very much malahat. It was a bit early for romance though, I took the photo at 05:53...

Michael Skorulski from Cigel, Slovakia

The sky is superb and the overall composition excellent. The color and effect super. An excellent photo, Wolfgang.

19 Jan 2008 7:33am

@Michael Skorulski: I agree Michael!
Bravo Wolfgang !


Merci à vous deux!

DeadPixel from Tehran, Iran

Very nice colorong in the sky but I like different foreground.

19 Jan 2008 8:13am

@DeadPixel: Wolfgang will probably say:
« ... being there at the right time... »,
but the thing is
he is the only one with this picture
and this is a good one.


It's true, I was crazy enough to get up this early, and the view was my reward...

medam961 from Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina

Those red clouds look great while flying over the hill. Wonderful effect and colours!

19 Jan 2008 8:43am

@medam961: Thank you MedaM!


And dobar dan to Sarajevo!

Nice comment from a sky expert.


Thanks Craiger,
Gilles is right to call you the sky expert,

MaryB from Staffordshire, United Kingdom

Nature never ceases to amaze me, this is a beautiful capture the colours are glorious.

19 Jan 2008 11:36am

@MaryB: Mother Nature is quite an artist.
All we have to do is look and click.
Well, almost...
Thank you Mary!

and they are the real thing, no photoshop on them!

Illuci from Hurdegaryp, Netherlands

Like a storm of light above a quiet hill... Beautiful!

19 Jan 2008 11:47am

@Illuci: There is a strange contrast
between this fine image of Wolfgang
and this fine one of yours.

Life is like that.


Bedankt minheer Erik!

Scarabaeus from Manchester, United Kingdom

Nice title and colours. I really like the trees in the background which add more depth to the photo.

19 Jan 2008 12:51pm

@Scarabaeus: Yes, the mountain is about 5 km from my house. Thanks for the compliment,

Viewfinder from Bradenton, United States

So beautiful; even the cold is beautiful. The silhouette of the hillside against this fiery sky is magnificent. Bravo!

19 Jan 2008 1:03pm

@Viewfinder: Actually it was quite mild for a 17th of October, it was at 5:53 am and I just stepped out in my dressing gown....
Thanks for the compliment, and you have many beautiful Florida skies in your archive, like the one today.

Laurent from Lyon, France

somptueux coucher ou lever de soleil.
L'effet de mouvement dans le ciel est superbe. Est il le fruit d'une exposition longue?

19 Jan 2008 1:41pm

@Laurent: L'exposition était de 1/50 sec, ce qui paraît comme un mouvement sont des trainées de vapeur à l'ombre du nuage principal. C'était à 05:53 le 17 octobre 2007, et le ciel était tel quel. Merci pour la visite et le compliment,

melodee from granby, Canada

c'est vraiment très beau!! :)

19 Jan 2008 2:37pm

mj from United States

so beautiful and romantic I love the colors and the trees just add such a wonderful silhouette to the picture

19 Jan 2008 2:44pm

@mj: Thanks! I guess many people would say it's a bit early for romance :-) (5:53am)
