Had wanted to shoot this for quite some time.
The morning before the sky was black with no significant light
This mountain and volcanic range in the Island of Fuerteventura is just stunning

Greetings from the Critique Club!

What to say regarding a Blue Ribbon entry ... Congratulations!! Clearly everyone agrees that you isolated your subject and used great contrast to show it in its best light (quite literally). Getting up early is hard but I'm very glad you did so that we could see this beautiful vista. I love the transition of day and night captured in such rich colors. I even like that the peak is centered in the composition. I know some folks frown on that but this just works.

Congratulations again on the little blue Christmas present. You've earned it and encouraged me to make plans for early Saturday morning with my camera. ;)

Thank you for all the kind comments . First ribbon after many many years! And on Xmas day too!

Three things I have learnt in my DPC years

1 Getting up early is definitely worth it
2 Never stop shooting and looking for a different angle
3 Never give up !!!
