The title may be not so romantic as the photo, but the fact to see so many kinds of trees, wild and cultivated ones, has been fascinating me at this moment.
I have been at this place more than one year ago, in January 2008, and also now I was lucky to find the same conditions. Interesting to see the differences in quality, comparing the pic from my old bridge camera and this one with a DSLR and a good lense.
The place where I set up my camera is just above the ruins of a celtic city, 2500 years old, with amazing architectural details. This ancient people chose this place to build a city... because it´s above the fog and due to the strategic position it has a beautiful view across the lower carinthian basin.

I love soft morning scenes like this. For me they convey a palpable mood of calmness. I can almost feel the cool and smell the moisture in the air. That little tree in the lower left really stands out subtly as a lead character. Nice one.

Soft capture, pleasing and relaxing!
The trees look amazing amidst this fog!
It's a fantastic situation!
Lighting is very good and one can see every type of tree!
Great mastery in photography!

C'est ce que j'appelle de la biodiversité esthétique : ce paysage est fascinant.
jjcordier (69539) 2009-04-20 22:38
Une véritable splendeur!Et quelle fantastique qualité d'image.....ça valait le coup d'investir visiblement! la beauté de cette photo me fascine totalement.
besnard (50359) 2009-04-20 22:49
Une pure merveille ce cliché de cette nature qui s'éveille dans la brume.
Bravo et merci pour cette belle image.

ecco qui un'altra delle tue meravigliose e sognanti immagini catturate nel bosco delle fate e degli elfi. Ci si aspetta solo di vedere balzare fuori un personaggio di Tolkjen! Scherzo naturalmente, ma devo sinceramente dire che sei un vero maestro e hai un occhio molto attento per questo tipo di immagini, l'atmosfera catturata è incantevole. Bravissimo.

That's a very beautiful picture of a foggy landscape. Very nice colors, perfect sharpness, and you catched this rare moment.

wirklich ein wunderschönes Bild und toll auch mal die Enwicklung von einer Kamera zur anderen nachvollziehen zu können..
ein Bild ganz nach meinem Geschmack, und da sehe ich auch noch viel Potential für meine kleinen Gehversuche..
viele Grüße Bernd

you have a great starting series with your new camera :)
nice how the fog is playing again

Oh la la, oh la la ....!
You're not wasting your time with the new 5D Christian !!
simply gorgeous, not much to be added
Bravo. encore !
sevy (14889) 2009-04-20 23:42
The play of the fog on this trees landscape is very nice. It is providing a real mood and put even more in evidence the tree by hiding the grounds.
The kind of photos I like to take.
amazon (12110) 2009-04-20 23:50
very nice foggy atmosphere,beautiful soft colours,
maglex (1980) 2009-04-20 23:54
Hi Christian, this is one of those photos that makes a day so nice just by looking at it and see all the details. A perfect one, the subtlety of hues, dimension and the mood. I would love to have this one hanging on my wall! TFS, Alex

Very beautiful photo of this forest with the mist which rises. The light is excellent as well as the neatness. There is a big difference with the ancient camera but the conditions were not completely the same.
vasilpro (40685) 2009-04-21 0:29
The place with the fog and the different kind of trees is unique. Very nice photo with soft colors and great atmosphere.
Have a nice day, Vasilis.
pauloog (11745) 2009-04-21 0:42
Just beautiful thsi view in soft colours with the trees and landscape emerging from the drifting fog. And on top a fine play of lines.
Traczewska (14) 2009-04-21 1:08
Just before Easter I've made 600 km north and reach the kingdom of lakes and storks. "My" lake was still frozen and suddenly in one day the fog appear.. as white pillow covered the lake.. it lasted few hours.. when finally fell down there was no any ice.. only polish, wet surface..
Watching your foggy trees I recall that atmosphere.. mysterious, light and heavy cushion touching tenderly the ground.. The most beautiful is that such a view is alive.. fog is passing, curling, could disappear in a minute.. the perspective of quick loss makes it unique and even more precious.
with regards, agn
bobocortis (15918) 2009-04-21 1:12
Vista in miniatura mi è parsa in un primo momento la "solita" ripresa del castello di Neuschwanstein che emerge dalla nebbia. Invece no, è un'originale ritratto corale di un bosco quanto mai vario. E' curioso come da questa foto se ne potrebbero trarre almeno altre due o tre di sue aree particolari.
judesta (1006) 2009-04-21 2:27
What a superb photo. Your light management is exceptional, the colours soft and natural, the scene almost magical, great POV.
Floydian (30970) 2009-04-21 4:31
Very beautiful, you must be a romantic person bringing always these wonderful moody clouds hanging in to a valley. I don't have hills and mountains here, no way i could make this, but how i love to see this. A real beauty, truly wonderful. Even that mkII adapts very fast in your hands and even more to your good pair of eyes.
dta (59121) 2009-04-21 4:50
Hello Christian ,
Another great capture , with your new camera . The other one (with the bridge camera) , was not bad at all . But this one is really fantastic , with an outstanding palet of soft colors , in this misty scenery .
Very good job .
cobra112 (15589) 2009-04-21 5:37
Ciao Christian. Altro impianto sconografico di notevole interesse per l'atmosfera ricreata. Paesaggio da favola.
Elaine_Blath (8509) 2009-04-21 6:32
wow...I am almost speechless, so full of fantasy and strange atmosphere, almost like Brothers Grimm would appear any moment...great!
Have a nice day,
sacavem (18608) 2009-04-21 7:25
Wonderful photograph!! Very well composed and presented. You have framed it well and the detail are well captured!! An usual scene in winters mornings.Thanks for sharing! Biodiversity,a force of nature!
jonathan_hart (21270) 2009-04-21 9:01
i like the detail of the single tree in bottom left
all the details are gorgeous
there was just enough fog and a fine lighting,
good composition too
anto95 (1840) 2009-04-21 9:05
You chose a very good position to take this shot with success!
BennyV (13352) 2009-04-21 10:03
Excellent title, if you ask me! Great picture, very atmospheric work. Congratulations on this one!
emka (67229) 2009-04-21 10:57
Hi, another photo of you misty series. Biodiversity here is really amazing. I like it very much.
sayeed_rahman (5985) 2009-04-21 13:16
Hello Christain...at last i find you..even after a year as it seems you take time out to create great images..inspiring really :)
this one an absolute cracker..the light is just sensational...its simple..youve controlled the exposure very well it seems..
Cant take my eyes off the photo..
Bartleby (13246) 2009-04-21 13:24
another misty landscape...and another hit. Love this one too with those strong diagonals.
lestans (16904) 2009-04-21 14:19
Meravigliosa immagine di alberi nella nebbia che sembrano pizzi e merletti, molto sharp in mezzo alla nebbia.
Beli anche i colori.
marietom (34607) 2009-04-21 14:48
c'est tout simplement magnifique, bravo pour cette composition, aux très belles couleurs.

Wow... so beautiful, so poetic. I love the mood of this picture. Everything is so delicate. Congratulations.
MarianneS (15338) 2009-04-22 6:06
You are right! The quality of this one is even better, although the first one was already very good.
I like the range of colours you could capture here, despite the fog.
The atmosphere is still misty (I prefered this title;-)
diomed (13926) 2009-04-22 13:58
un paesaggio fantastico fatto di molti piani e di una grande magia. Complimenti !!
dmarizz (2796) 2009-04-23 16:40
owning a good camera and an even better lens is a pleasure but... not enough to get wonderful pictures. Your postings are great as you are a great photographer (I remember very well your photobook of Cuba!)
Congratulations and ... I deeply envy your equipment...
Have a nice week end, Dario.
Wanda1 (14654) 2009-04-23 21:59
Beautiful how the trees appear throughout the mist scattered in the landscape almost in layers. What I like the most is that one small tree that appears to be all on it's own amongst the other larger ones. Wonderful atmosphere.

davvero straordinaria..questa e' da poster
e il titolo ne riassume il fascino e l'importanza che deve essere rimarcata!!!
johannes68 (3469) 2009-04-24 13:52
der Vergleich mit dem alten Foto ist erstaunlich, die Qualitätsunterschiede, aber auch die Ähnlichkeiten - als ob sie innerhalb weniger Minuten aufgenommen worden wären. Abgesehen von der schönen Stimmung fällt mir vor allem die realistische Abbildung der unterschiedlich dunklen Bäume auf - da macht sich die 5D echt bezahlt!
Tobias__Ortmann (2638) 2009-04-25 4:09
das Bild gefällt mir sehr gut super Stimmung der Nebel sieht auch super aus der macht das Bild
hab gesehen dass du dir die 5d mk2 zugelegt hast
freu mich auf weitere gute bilder mit dieser Kamera
npecanhuk (58170) 2009-04-25 6:16
It's simple but that doesn't mean it's less anything! In my humble opinion, that's simply fantastic! Only the best talented eyes of an excellent photographer could have taken this one! I really loved it!
TFS - Congratulations!
paololg (31448) 2009-04-25 15:59
Ciao caro Christian,
sono felice di darti il 100° punto perchè questa foto li merita tutti. Come ti ho detto più volte, le tue nebbie sono le più belle di TE. Bravissimo!
Ciao, buona domenica!
horias (165) 2009-04-26 9:02
I think is the best photo i ever see.....congratulation!!!

Hi Christian, A surreal feeling with this beautiful image. The mystiness surrounding the various types of tree has a strong impact. Very good reult and presentation. TFS. Murray.
arnabchat (7233) 2009-05-03 2:13
First of all, congratulations for the new 5D!
amazing clarity, and lovely tones. 5D + 70-200 f2.8L rocks!!
as usual, a stunning shot. your shots are increasing my eagerness to visit these places more and more.
Greetings from Trieste,
smarcell (19963) 2009-05-03 13:06
Titolo perfetto. Tanti tipi di alberi diversi che emergono dalla nebbia.
The master of fog...
mbasil (2127) 2009-05-03 20:02
Stellar. An amazing scene, and you've done a great job capturing it. I love the way you've used a zoom to compose it tightly. Well done!
IgorDeleze (585) 2009-05-05 2:59
This picture is realy nice.
Hellas (6693) 2009-05-15 10:54
The difference between the two photographs is obviously great! The atmosphere and the PoV are similar. The exposure is absolutely good having sharpness and excellent DoF. This “L” heavy lens did a very good work. I think that timing was ideal for capturing the effect of fog.
nbj (2091) 2009-05-17 10:08
such lovely colors. dreamy and really beautiful.

Outstanding picture! Funny thing is, I have seen CGI effects close to real images but never seen a real picture resembling an image composed by CGI..lol! Great shot.

This photo seems a impressionistic paintings. Natural soft colours are superb.
