The photo from what I call My valley up in the mountains of central Norway where I have a place of my own..
After a long time at TE I think for me time has come for a little "Time out". I never have had any problems with the moderators work at TE where the target of course is to secure the TOS of the site. But since the change of ownership it have been several disposals and discussions that, as I see it, is not good for a site like TE.
Well, no need to dwell around this. My summary of the situation should be clear enough at at my project page
Happy new year to all friends at TE :-)

Hello Jack! Amazing landscape. Wonderful clouds. Good colours, ideal saturation. Perfect composition. Great effect. Good luck!

Yes, there are dark clouds above TrekEarth - made by the owners/moderators and their behaviour. Your photo shows this in an excellent and most impressive way. I hope you really "only" take a time out and not a total abandonment.
I wish you all the best and a Happy New Year!
See you later !!! ;-))
Greetings from cold but very sunny Germany!

What a place to call 'your' valley...it gives the time out thing a whole new meaning. Clouds are a bit heavy, but maybe that's a personal reflection there...
Anyway, thanks again, Jack, for all the effort and energy put in. I'm still waiting for that open letter to get the reply it deserves.
Meanwhile, I'll be looking forward to you returning here.

not attending TE on a regular basis I was not aware of what was going on. I noticed you didn't post during past few days but I thought you were away on holidys somewhere, like many people do during this Season. Now thanks to this last posting of yours I could apprehend what was the matter. I want to express my solidariety with your initiative and I'll look forward to know further developments of this problem. Either here or in your blog.
The picture is , needless to say, very "satisfying".
Thank you for your wishes, Happy New Year to you too,

Bonjour, cher Jack,
La beauté des nuages est stupéfiante, ils semblent lourds, très lourds et emplis de pluie, gonflés d'orgueil pour créer à cette composition une image de grande beauté.
À l'aube du Nouvel An, accepte de tout coeur les voeux les plus chaleureux pour une année exceptionnelle : santé, bonheur et prospérité !

une image avec un contraste extra un ciel menacant qui donne du relief a la photo, et un endroit de norvége plein d'authenticité, belle réalisation

Dark times for TE, it seems...I wasn't here for some time now and it is indeed a sad day for the forum to loose so many respectable photogs like you and many others. I hope all of you will return and contribute to the ppl here...
The picture, btw, is excellent with strong atmosphere and texture of the clouds (a bit too dark for my taste).

Un ciel lourd ou perçe une trés belle lumiére , bon POV avec le rouge de la maison qui attire le regard, trés belle composition
Thank you Jack, Happy new year too

Striking sky of just the right mood .. stunning dimension .. you can feel the wind through all parts of it .. makes the small building feel vulnerable .. the distant peaks are powerful even at this small size .. tremendous ..
for what it is worth you have my support and thoughts.
my best holiday wishes to you and yours ..

I hope this time out will be short, nice from your country but There was some problems of weather in Colioure and I think that you must show us what's happened there.
I wish you my greetings while waiting the new year.
delkoo (68) 2008-12-27 13:53

A meeting at Collioure is still considering.

A dramatic tonal range in the sky, with good colour & sharpness. I like the color contrast between the red shed & blue sky. Good polarization & contrast. Tfs!
thea0211 (1365) 2008-12-28 23:28

... happy new year ;o)

Sorry to see that you are going to leave us, hope your departure will be just for a small period of time, really would like to see you back in the near future. If all the excellent photographers and good friends like you leave what is going to happens here. This make me very sad.
Wish you a Happy New Year.

the sky looks out of this world, simply fascinating jack... and the red of the little hut adds a lot to the charm of the compo i think... my compliments...
wishing you all the best in the new year...
sacavem (18610) 2009-02-16 13:22
What a dramatic cloudy sky! Great colours and a very pleasant composition. Excellent DOF.
Hellas (6773) 2009-02-19 3:11
I enjoy very much your valley up in the mountains, just because I love mountains!
A little underexposed, for me a good choice! You created a nice composition enhanced by a good process!
Thanks for this presentation.
