Capturing the good, the bad and the ugly of lesser-known Spain and now Southeast Asia
(1/400, f7.1, iso-100, 250mm)
W o n d e r f u l !
Can I go with you? How did you find such AMAZING range of mountains. They look like the wind carved them!
Wonderful view~and nice work
Oooo, that 250mm is fabulous here! The mountain top looks like a model.
that’s an amazing photograph!
Uniquely superb image! It reminds me-not the image itself but the title-of a picture of André Kertesz. But in your case the image is still better. For my part as far as concern the title i found another you may like too: Stone and Wool. As a matter of fact this magnificent picture plays with textures and forms in a most ingenious way. Respect!
What a great shot, love it really! Thanks for it.
Tremenda. Algún día visito españa
Fantastisch licht en herhaling!
Not only beautiful, but witty as well. Nice work!
Truly beautiful capture! Great light too!
Gorgeous. I loved my visit to the Pyrenees so many years ago. I’m trying to remember the names of the 3 mountains I climbed but I only recall Pedraforca. The other two were a little higher. I don’t think this was one of them.
Great photo. It being in B&W makes it all the more striking
Fantastic photo of the mountain and the lonely cloud ! // Maria 🙂
I looked into visiting Ordesa y Monte Perdido National Park but it is not easy getting there. I managed to see Mont Perdu from the French side last year. I hope to hike in the Parque one day. Black and White is the way to go with this image.
Incredible shots. To capture the spirit of nature in a photo is truly inspiring, and you do it so well.
Wow, thank you very much, thats very flattering of you to say, especially after admiring your nature photos lately!
So sorry for late reply but appreciate it still
All the best, Ron.
Love the mountains.
Who doesn´t, Annie?
Preciosa fotografía, impresionan las cumbres!!
Muchas gracias, Belén, lo siento por mi respuesta muy tarde!
Espero haces un bien año, saludos, Ron.
Great shot, beautiful light, and the title is inspired!
thanks, funny how sometimes a title can add to a photo, although its pretty lost out there, i think 😉
Hi Ray, thanks for the compliment, hope all is well, greetings, Ron.
Thanks, waited for the cloud to move there and still in frame with the mountaintops, although i didnt want it to evaporate 😉
Beautiful work !!
Thanks very much, Bernie, thats great to comment of you. Cheers, Ron.
Stunning shot and great title.
Muchas gracias, Lynne, it felt so lost, its not that i cropped out the other clouds, they were nowhere to be seen 😉
Warm greetings from Spain, Ron.
Stunning shapes and tones. Superb processing…love it.
Thanks, David! Guess one of the lessons for me in this photographic journey is knowing what and how to capture and know what can be done in postprocessing if necessary to get what i want! Cheers, Ron.
This is about as perfect as it can get! Beautiful image-
Oooh, wow, thanks, thats great to hear, scenes like this in nature with early or late light are real magic imo
Thanks for all your enthousiasm always, cheers, Ron.
Oh my, that’s good! The light, the light!
Gracias, Ashley! Natural light is a magical wonder imo. Always difficult to capture and make the viewer feel the same 😉
Herein the faces of gods…simply awe-inspiring. ~peace, Jason
Obrigado, Jason, there are some faces in there for sure 😉
Cheers to you, Ron.
I am super impressed with the mountains (not so much the cloud, but oh well…). If I didn’t know they were mountains I would have thought something along the lines of a dish of chocolate ripple ice cream…in the process of melting. Truly unusual nature shot!
haha, so true, Alli, it does look like ice cream tops, guess its that refreshing up there! The cloud is a nice addition to make the photo a bit more unique than only the mountains, but I´m with you that those are the real eyecatchers here…
Thanks for your keen eye, cheers, Ron
Thank you, Simon! I like the hard textured mountains and that soft fluid sky together…
Hola, Marta, muchas gracias y feliz jornada para ti! Saludos, Ron.
olala, this is spectacular!
Hola, Hanne, its always so nice to wathc nature scenes unfold and see if theres a moment that capture part of that feel 😉
All the best, Ron.
I believe we absolutely agree on that one 🙂 All the best to you too, Ron.
That little lost cloud has the same shape as a couple of the mountain peaks. Very unusual and nice! Thanks for the visit and the like of my Weekly Photo Challenge post “Foreshadow”.
Youre very welcome, thanks for stopping by here! haha, it really looks like the little cloud is mocking the mountains like somebody that imitates every word you say 🙂
The pink ruin 2 shots back is my absolute favourite but there were so many comments, I got impatient. I do love this too.
Haha, thanks so much, Jo, very kind of you to say, i love all those comments, really, want to answer them all, hell of a job, but so is all the time that people take out to comment and view here! Thank you for finding a great spot to let me know 😉
All the best to you and your adventures, greetings, Ron.
Great shot – they are like tiger/zebra stripes.
Thanks, Mark, so nice to see (some) men thinking of wild animals and (some) women seeing sugary cakes 😉
Hope all is well, cheers, Ron.
Awesome! Love the Lost Cloud!
Thank you, Amy, although it makes a nice scene i was till hoping he would find some friends to join that day 😉
This is pure magic!
Gracias, Lisa, i thought so too when I saw this unfold, wasnt sure if i was totally awake but luckily grabbed my camera to make sure i was 😉
Have a great day and thanks for your support, Ron.
A very unusual scene, well observed. The lighting is amazing.
Thanks, Louis, it pays to wake up early, although without a roof the first light made that a certainty 😉
All the best and thanks for all your enthousiasm always, Ron.
Wonderful … thank you
Youre very welcome, enthousiast comments like yours make it worth bloggin, very big thanks for that!
Danke schon, Stefan! Hope all is well, cheers, Ron.
Very kind of you to say, Vera, very happy you enjoy them!
All the best to you, Ron.
Just one word: WOAAAH!
Haha, thats great, Ingo, i love enthousiasm like that, thanks a million and hope all is great,
Yes, wonderful title. And everything looks so fluid here, not of parts
but of a whole, not quite as if the scene were underwater, more that
moist air of one purpose goes from sky to the base of the mountains
in an embrace.
And yes, Ansel Adams would admire it.
Hola Barbara, i was pleased with the fluid feel to the rest of the sky to make the small one stand out too.
Thanks for the Ansel approvement, i know its very obvious i like the same contrasty b&w mountainous views as he did, big admirer!
If you watch these scenes unfold in real time it is almost like the clouds are really embracing and circling the mountain(top)s who are partly responsible for their existence…
Have a great day and thanks for all the great talks, greetz, Ron.
Gracias, Ken! Hope all is well, Ron.
The composition is so beautiful in its simplicity.
Thanks, Angeline, i love those zoomed views of mountains, makes it simpler in composition and strenghten the shapes of the mountain(tops) too, i hope!
This is sooo beautiful!
Thanks very much, Elisa, nature provides us with so much beauty, its just waking up early to see it that makes it hard 😉
All the best, Ron.
Love the shot, love the title!
Thanks, Tina, it looked so alone up there with these monstrous mountains surrounding it 😉
Greetings and thanks for your support always, Ron.
