What a great scene, it has a bit of everything!
The misty low cloud provides the drama, the pool of sunlight excites the eye, the small buildings and cows animate the scene, and the dark forest suggests danger.
This would make an exceptional book illustration or cover!

Well, having not been to either fair city, I will not side with dear friend, Franz here..but I will say that tbhis magical image makes me want to be there now...of course, the season may be different..I assume this was perhaps early summer or late spring? But the elements included in this beautiful image are marvelous. The fog just perfectly fits in that little valley there and really adds the charm and invotong quality. This is just a wonderful image, Maria...I could look at these all month!!

Sorry I got the seasons wrong, but I also forgot to mention that I truly love the cows in the foreground...they really "completes" this view I think. So beautiful!
