New PB??? 7.74 at 100, 18 comments, 3 faves

Thanks, everyone!! YES!! New PB and with this score it is likely to stay there forever! :)

It was taken on a busy road called Black Spur Route starting from Healesville, on the edge of Yarra Valley. I actually had to wear an orange vest while taking the photos as the road is very narrow and winding, and short of parking bays. I drove on it many times and always wanted to take some photos but it was impossible to stop. So when this challenge was announced I got my cycling orange vest and drove to take photos at last! It was rather scary as there were some big logging trucks passing (yes, they log there) but I was lucky to survive and I even found some mist (low cloud). Great image to have on my profile :)

I've never been able to achieve that look of the "light" as you have. Very nicely done. Deserving ribbon.

Beautiful light and soft-focus; I try to but very rarely (like once) get that luminous look. Congratulations!

Beautiful shades of green. Diagonal line of foliage strengthens the composition. Fog lends to the mystery. Good job.

My favorite in this challenge. I am always a sucker for how gray skies and fog make greens pop. Makes me want to go for a hike...
