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!

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

27 Jun 2011 9:52pm

@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... :)

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!
