Misty/ Fogy evening on Val-d'Aosta, view eastwards from the roof of our 3 stories hotel.
The small river is the "Fiume Dora Baltea", one of the tributary creeks of the mighty PO river, that flows all the way to the Adriatic sea.

A splendid panoramic view over this lush green valley. We can see a remarkable distance despite the misty atmosphere. Pleasing natural tones and good clarity.

this place is very beautiful offering delightful and peaceful views in every direction. I like very much the depth and perspective of your picture which draw us along the river, the mountains and towns. The clouds look explosive enhancing the brightness of the image and the rendering the atmosphere vibrant. The capture of a great range of greens is impressive in the haze and opposite lighting. Well done and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,

I like the effect of the fog on this beautiful landscape! Good capture of the clouds over the mountains. From what I've I think Italian countryside are beautiful, would love the experience them in person, maybe someday. Good lighting and dof with nice details.

You have anchored the shot with the f/g bushes and provided an immense panoramic view across the river. The slight mist adds to the impression of distance.
Fine sharpness and natural colours.
My warm regards,

The distance between the river and the mountains is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the scenery. The light has a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.

L'apporto sul PO di acqua.
I suoi affluenti occidentali ed il diminuito flusso.
Da fiumi a torrenti ..!!!
Una diagonale ed il versante alpino nella sua radiosa bellezza.

Excellent view to the Aosta Valley, one of my preferred spots. I like your composition with the part of river in the front and the mountains behind. Nicely done.

Ciao caro Ike
Another good high POV to demonstrate beautifully the variety and magnificence of this landscape. The diagonal line of the river is a nice lead in and I like how you composed it coming out of the right-hand foreground corner. Lovely natural colours and good sharpness.
Warm regards and happy Friday

The view describes the landscape. This is an interesting photo with natural colors and good light, a little high on the clouds. Bravo.
Have a nice day

Fantastic this broad overview of these green slopes, crowned by the high peak that we see in the background, very nice POV with river foreground and all these populations spread across the image.
Beautiful sky adds its bonus to the image.
Have a nice weekend.

wow this is an amazing view from a hotel. It really has a feeling of space. The river makes a nice foreground.
It must have been a great trip with such a variety places to visit.
Very well done,

josepmarin (58359) 2012-09-15 10:17
from your hotel you've captured a really fantastic view of the Aosta Valley, in an image very deep and very sharp in spite of the early morning mist.
I like the curve of the river and the landscape of the villages splashing the hillsides of this beautiful valley.
It is a nice composition, executed well.
mauro61 (52871) 2012-09-15 12:51
fondo valle ben ripreso con tanto verde e con il fiume che attraversa in basso la scena.
Luce forte che ha un po' bruciato il cielo,

An expression of greatness, above the lines I'm writing now, is convied by the outstanding setup that gives much of the spotlight to the mighty mountain that has the best seat for a view on the cute river below!!
raszid62 (18515) 2012-09-19 10:07
Great view of the mountain valley d'Aosta. Gentle slopes of the mountains, but still with pointy tops. Magnificent panorama of colors and excellent quality.
הצהריים טובים. נוף נהדר של הרי עמק ד 'אאוסטה. מדרונות מתונים של ההרים, אך עדיין עם פסגות מחודדות. נוף מרהיב של צבעים ואיכות מעולה.
jmdias (68661) 2012-10-04 2:20
nice angle catching the valley, the slopes and the river. it is a very beautiful place really, this time I tryed to take some shots from inside the train but they weren't so nice.
kato (11630) 2013-04-20 7:35
You're capturing well this landscape by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the mountain range, the winding river in this side and the village at the foot of a mountain in the misty evening. It's impressive for greenery in early summer, too. And, the clouds in the sky draw out a good effect.

finde eine schöne Flusslandschaft im Val-d'Aosta, gut gemacht!

Un beau paysage de la vallée d'Aoste très verdoyant entre le bleu du fleuve et du ciel, dans une douce et belle journée de fin de journée

A beautiful landscape of the very green Aosta Valley between the blue river and sky in a soft and beautiful day in late afternoon

My first thought was "that looks awfully like Switzerland." I viewed the map and realized it is close to the Swiss border, no wonder! It looks like a soothing place, with green mountains and fresh river.
