Shun from Mühlheim am Main, Germany

What a light... The foreground looks so friendly and open yet the clouds are so dramatic. Great scenery with a lot of impact on the viewer...

@Shun: Thanks for that Mirko!....I had a great time on Sunday in the Lake District taking these photos and I've got quite a few I want to post here so I hope you won't get bored with them.

hugo poon from Hong Kong

Oh my... I love this even more... I should say this is one of your landscape shots that I love best!!! Can't tell you why - you know me well, I have never been "analytic" as long as photography is concerned; but must tell you that I couldn't take my eyes off this picture for quite a while!:-)

Best regards,

Some many great landscape shots in your portfolio, but I lobe this one. You have as well as magical skills when it come to B&W conversion. I've never reached this level :-), and believe me, I try hard.
Keep on going, this is simply gorgeous !
