You seem to get such beautiful light, soft and golden. Added to that your skills in capturing it, and you result in these really beautiful shots. I think your gallery is one of the finest here on TE for the sense of mood and light that you manage to create.
Thanks as always

Yes!!, The name "apple country" is really perfect for this place. The pink colored hotel as much i can remember thye ame is "devbhumi or shivalik",i stayed there.and the road from pio to this area is covered with apple orchards. Your frame reminds me.
The composition is really fantastic with white clouds and snow capped mountains and the little bit vegetations. A really nice catch.

The composition is really fantastic with white clouds and snow capped mountains and the little bit vegetation.
Excellent sharpness and clarity, we see almost all details, this is really so lovely.
Composition and presentation are pleasant to look at.
Very well done, TFS.

i tuoi paesaggi grandiosi mi piacciono moltissimo anche perchè sono ripresi molto bene, sia per le belle composizioni che sai creare che, per la costante presenza in esse del colore sia che si trovi nel cielo, sia, come in questo caso, in un ridente edificio.
Complimenti ancora una volta per le tue belle proposte.
Ciao e buona serata

The vivid colour of the house in the FG is a great contrast to the almost monotone tonal range of the mountains and sky - this could be a great candidate for selective de-saturation. Very well composed image - nice and sharp - a real eye catcher with those colours.
