What a beautiful image filled with alpenglow and the peace of an early morning just singing off the screen. The curving road into the town is so inviting for an adventure..I love this scene and the entire feeling it gives..All the Best, Maria!

beautiful early morning mood and colours, very appealing frame, and a great leading line - the road!

There may be a stream or river down there, creating that lovely, soft, foggy mood. Is that a covered bridge down there?

@Judy aka L@dybug: Thanks Judy, there is a stream or maybe 2, I'm not really sure, but one is for sure, where the bushes of vegetation and pink flowers are. but now that you mentioned the covered bridge, I see a bridge on that small fragment of the road on the right side of the image, but I don't think it's covered. What you see at the end of that small road is just a building (farming house).
However, within a matter of 15 minutes, this entire scene went from clear to fully covered in fog/mist, and then to clear again...some very fast moving earth fog flooded the entire view in just minutes and only for a few minutes, and then simply vanished as the sun rose over the mountains...
I have other images as this was happening, but they're lacking coordination and good composition as I was amazed myself and took me by surprise not knowing what I'm really taking photos of... :)
such a lovely scene. i love the curve in the road and the rose in the sky

What a soft light ! Really fine !

Thank you, Maria, for your explanation of this image. I see now, that what looked like a covered bridge is a farm building. This looks so like Switzerland, so may be near the border. Anyway, a beautiful scene!

You are very adept at capturing the atmosphere in a scene (literally and figuratively) Maria. Very well done!

What a great scene...I'm drawn to the range of vivid but subltle colors in this image.

i love this moments in the fall, shortly before the sun rises, the mist covers the landscape and you feel the awake of life! great shot on a perfect morning!
