One of the beauty spots in Kumgangsan Mountains. The tiny people by the lake are a group of North Koreans on an organised tour.
I used a 0.9 ND grad filter.

Dobry górski krajobraz. O tej porze góry nabierają ciekawe barwy od który kadry aż kipią, ale umiejetnie wykorzystane przyciągają uwagę. Dobra praca

Third time around today...:-)
This view is truly spectacular, including the fine autumn colours. I am sure North Korea would have a lot to offer visitors if it was a normal country where foreigners could go without too much hassle. I expect that nobody, neither locals nor foreigners, travel anywhere on unorganised tours. This view may anyway have been worth the hassle :-)-

Just fantastic... I have never seen the photos from North Korea here. Anyway this is wonderful nature, very nice nice colors, perfect quality, impressive sharpness.
How much this tour?

you have used your filter perfectly to balance the sky and foreground. I love the hint of red leaves in the corner of the foreground, it contrast superbly with the hint of blue sky in the top corner. you have composed this very well to help create a lovely image.

hai visitato luoghi bellissimi e hai scattato delle foto pregevoli che in piů occasioni ho anche elogiato per la loro particolare bellezza.
Anche questa č una pregevole foto che merita di essere commentata per la sua particolare bellezza, bellezza sia nella composizione, che nel soggetto e nei colori.
Un insieme ricco di fascino colto nella migliore delle maniere.
Complimenti ancora una volta.
Ciao e buon fine settimana

Another wonderful photo from North Korea. Something again new and rarely seen. Again the technical qualities here are excellent. Your vantage point well placed. A nice full view. TFS ... you do great work, you have a natural talent.

Another very good picture from this "secret" country. Were you ever allowed to contact the inhabitants? Did you see anything that was not approved by the authorities? Still, you managed to take some very interesting pictures here.

Un paysage aux couleurs automnales de toute beauté. Trčs jolie composition sous une belle et douce lumičre.

subtle light and gorgeous scenery - who could resist this place. A real sense of the scale of this place in this superbly executed and presented image. Awesome!
Enjoy the weekend - Brian.

As others have said, it's very unusual to see images from North Korea, and when I saw your other postings I did some research about how to get into the country. I'd love to know which tour agency/group you used. This landscape is stunning, and the series of diagonals in the hillsides provide a strong compositional element. Somehow it doesn't look pin-sharp: I wonder if you forgot to sharpen the little jpeg before uploading (I know I've been guilty of that!)

It must be interesting to visit so unknown places to the rest of the world, and here we can see a bit of nature of this country, beautifuly captured with great colors and depth! It's really pleasant to see pictures of North Korea here on TrekEarth! Thank you!
