Picture was taken from the bank of Lake Gregory, in Nuwara Eliya (Sri Lanka). The mountain in the background is the highest peak in Sri Lanka (Piduruthalagala). It is a pure coincidence capturing the picture and a rare glimpse of dusk in the hill country, considering the fact that it’s covered with thick mist most of the day.
It was a misty day and this scenery was there for a very short time (less than 40 seconds). The next minute I barely could see my friend standing 5 meters away, the mist was so thick.
I think I am very lucky to capture this scenery…!

I´m agreed with Balder: the date is not necesary. For this reason let me to enclose a workshop with some adjustments. If you do not like you can delete it. Aniway the picture is beautiful

The outmoded date stamp is a show-stopper. Everyone should have an understanding of this fact: digital images carry metadata in the digital file which includes the date and time.
See my workshop. Image is too centered, too symmetrical, and too dark.
Photographer's Note is worthless as far as showing any consideration for viewers who would like to learn about the world through your photography. What is the name of the body of water, the mountain range? You state "Perfect time..." but do not indicate whether this is daybreak or dusk.
Image itself is interesting, whatever the details I may never discover.

Firstly I think your note is very informative. You may have forgotten to crop the date out though. The composition is nice, and it's a beautiful and unusual photo, as I know how hard its to photograph Lake Gregory sans the mist!
