This is the view of the valley just East (I think) of Kaaterskill Falls in the Catskills. We were actually on our way back from a very late lunch after shooting Kaaterskill top and bottom, and we saw the fog/clouds that rolled into the valley. There was no place to pull over though until we got to the Kaaterskill falls parking area. This is actually the view from that area!

It's quite beautiful in color as well, but the fall colors didn't say "silence" to me...so I silenced them in BW :)

Oh, I definitely think the black and white was the way to go for the challenge. Just a lovely image. Congratulations on the HM.

I like the fog,but I don't like much the effect of black and white,I usually prefer coloured photos...

I feel the borders detract... let it breathe..! Lovely, quiet scene, overall.

Lovely tonal range and ambiance here - the still of the night. Voted earlier.

Aha! Ethereally beautiful landscape as viewed on an old TV screen. What a concept! 8 for the shot. Demerits for the concept.

Very beautiful shot indeed.
I do not think that the white lines and black borders add one bit to the image, actually they take away some of the subtleties of the shot

Beautiful scene. Great depth, and the trees poking through are excellent focal points.

The moist air in this photo comes out and smacks the viewer in the face. This is a great thing!
