This is one of my favorite places. I took this picture about 14 steps away from where I was standing when I took my shot for the Infinite challenge. You can see the mountains are similar in both shots.

I took this picture on January 17, My Dadís Birthday.
He lives somewhere above the clouds now.

nice... speechless
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Very nice photo. I like what you did with the colors. Its just too bad the sign wasn't perfecttly vertical. I can see that the sign is whats tilted, not the camera since the horizon is tilted the other way.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

You may just find yourself with a blue appendage to this image after the deadline! Very aesthetic and, finally, a challenge shot worth hanging.

Beautiful tones and lots to look at besides the humour. Just a tiny bit more ground would have helped with a touch less sky. My only [10]

Beautiful artistic vision of this including a road sign. One of my two top picks for this challenge. A couple of small issues: It would have been good to be able to clone out some of the brighter reflections on the sign (but prohibited by the rules). The horizon of fog appears to be tilted right.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/25/2004 05:37:49 PM
And where this road leads you to? This photo seems to be take near heaven.

01/25/2004 01:36:14 PM
very good
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/25/2004 09:44:32 AM
Wow. I think this is top ten, maybe even a ribbon. Cool Fog. This would really be a great shot without that stupid sign, but since it has to be there, I'll let it go. Awesome eerie, surreal, great mood shown here. Very very well done. Great find and capture. I really like the toning of this too. 10. This should get a ribbon. I honestly can't see how it can't, but I've been wrong before.

wow... great capture!!! very nice tones!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/22/2004 11:49:33 AM
So lovely! The fluid clouds and the curves in the sign work well together. The stark grasses poppong out against the clouds are great contrast. The dark hill tops in the foreground, the lighter ones on the horizon makes a nice progression. Wish there wasn;t any glare on the sign. 9
