Taken from the wall of a gas station just outside Dogubeyazit on the Turkish Iranian border. The wall stabilized the camera using the bulky 300 mm lens and made a fine tripod. The weather was not great but I liked this view. Contrast & saturation have been increased. Dogubeyazit is sometimes pronounced by foreigners as 'doggybiscuit'.

dramatic scenery made all the more enticing by using the long lens. Looks rugged and beautiful with the clouds adding that touch of intrigue and atmosphere too!
Enjoy your Sunday - B.

Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice Sunday,

A splendid view from the top of the wall and pin sharp as well. Pleasantly illuminated and with agreeable natural tones.

Exquisite light on the mountains ridges in different distances across the green valley.
The village looks like a simple rural dwelings, but well attached to modern life with a sat.dishs.
Trees in dark tone contrast the light-green field behind.
Charming and yet impressive picture.

Molto bella la luce sul paesaggio, in particolare sulla grande montagna! Bella l'ombra sul profilo che stacca sul paesaggio, belli anche i colori, perfetta la composizione del quadro.

The length of the valley is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and the colors of the mountains. The good luminosity is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

Ton zoom important donne une image très intéressante de ces belles montagnes. Les plans étagés donnent une sensation de 3D.
