Very early, one cold morning in June from the Mount Buffalo Chalet. I've posted a couple from this series already, but really liked the effect of the mists and distance on these hills - almost like a watercolour.

Hi Simon. People are a mystery. I wonder why this photo has been ignored so far. I love the monochromatic result and the subtle difference in tone as the mountain ranges recede in thee distance. Reminds me of the Chinese ink paintings in its subtlety. Well done. Klaudio

Greetings Simon. A classic of its type, and criminally under-appreciated. Absolutely stunning image, lovely tonal colouring, sepia but not quite. I agree with Klaudio, it's a mystery to me too. Wonderful shot.

Real nice view over all this hills. And in spite of this soft mist your pic is amazing sharp! A beautiful morning anyway...

Fantastic lines, fantastic tones, Simon. As Klaudio says, the effect is beautifully subtle. Elegant and lovely work.

Hello Simon, I quite like this picture. I like the subtle muted tones in that layered effect transitioning through the tones. The mist just adds to the effect. A serene scene.

Very nice Picture Simon, I love the perspective, the smoke in the mountains. Color is very sweet and make a very peace picture.

This is a beauty. Nice use of haze. Well seen and recorded. Any PP work you did is marvelous.

This has to be one of the best adding-depth-through-layering shots that I have ever seen!
Like it a lot, Simon.

Very special, the gradation is at the same time uncanny, and so harmonious, The tones respond perfectly to each other, which has the result of drawing us inside, mesmerized, as if ready to fly over it.
davidhoare (188) 2006-09-12 3:21
beautiful. the different shades and contours and the misty effect are great.
Albatros (338) 2006-09-13 9:46
This is a very nice shot you got here!
You managed to cast a great depth into your picture with all those hills in different shades of brown on different layers.
Although there are no real details to be seen, I can imagine the beauty of this place in the early morning.
I just wonder, if you used a filter to create this effect?
aimee (941) 2006-09-13 10:37
nice composition. I like the way you play with the light. That's great :-) ! The brown color is nice as well. Beautiful view.

Fantastic range of gray and sepia tones that are degraded towards the depth of the horizon. The effect of the mist is really splendid, and you have caught it skillfully.
I like, it is an excellent photo.

Hi Simon. Great use of a classic composition. You have captured the ridgelines perfectly to show a depth that your telephoto lens tries to compress. Nice work and thanks for sharing.

The layers formed by the mountains are certainly very beautiful. The subtle colors are also very pleasing. Good work. Danilo

Great voew of these mountains with a perfect soft tones.
and a very graphical effect created by all these layers of mountains.
gracious (20025) 2006-12-20 12:34
The pattern landscape is just amazingly beautiful and thank you so much for your effort to captured this and sharing with us all!
nickybeau (128) 2006-12-20 13:01
A perfect photograph.
I feel like quoting George Cloney in his nespresso video pub :
"Exceptional... What else?"
ballaln (406) 2007-02-04 8:45
This is an excellent picture - you have managed the different shades of color very well! Absolutely fantastic.
Koopman (1247) 2007-03-11 15:48
Delicate grey tones organized in kind of algorythm which give the photo a superrealistic impression. Anyway, a pleasure for the eye.

Hi Simon. Very fine example of layering of the hills. Excellent ambiance and colours. Agree like a watercolour. TFS. Murray.

This is gorgeous, the layered mountains are just fantastic. I do not get titerd to look at it. It kind of peacefull. Very well executed.

Very nice Picture , perfect.

I really like it, well seen.
Thanks for sharing, best regards.

I was up there a couple of weeks ago and I wondered how it would look in the early morning light. Well you have answered my question, this is a stunning shot. The compression you are getting at 300mm is certainly giving you some beautiful layering in this one. Congratulations.
I hope they re-open the Chalet one day a pitty to see the icon shutdown indefinitely!
clic (17427) 2007-04-30 14:07
This mystic view is a refuge for my mind!
Backlight and fog feature laced mountain tops.
A fineart tableau!

this a beatifull picture with a good mood and harmonious colors and interesting composition , Congratulations form Belgiun french speaking , Henri Liège
teacozie (1377) 2007-05-30 23:01
I liked the other shot with the look out but this is what I really wanted to see... excellent lines and tones. The way the ridges spring up in well defined lines and create an horizontal pattern across the frame. Naturally graphical...
ozpaul (288) 2007-06-04 23:37
Some painters and designers try really hard to achieve this effect but the result is usually lacking in subtlety which this certainly isn't. Yet another reminder what rewards await for those of us who can drag ourselves from between the sheets early enough....
amino (418) 2007-10-13 1:43
Good abstract composition through multi mountain layers. The tone and bit of blur well suits the mood of this general panoramic shot.
azizbilgili (2111) 2008-10-31 7:06
I like the way you play with the light.
Fantastic lines, fantastic tones...
