A landscape where invasive species almost completely wiped out the native laurel forest from the steep slopes.
Yet the angle still allows for some last moments of purity, before where once was Atlantis sinks again

Well composed and framed by the lush mountains. This valley reminds me of Hawaiian topography. Very beautiful!

I've discovered this fantastic picture on your album, and I've found it really impressive. The steep grassy slopes are superb and you've found the right DOF to make the picture dynamic. The light is perfectly managed and the composition stays well balanced. Good textural aspects.
thanks for sharing!
