Weekly Photo Challenge: NEAR and FAR

This was taken one windy summer day in July 2010, just above Val Venosta during our 10-hour drive to Lago di Resia just to see its famous church tower submerged in water. You’ll get to see the tower on some other occasion, for now it is just windy plains, mountains and floating clouds.

Here is some music to go with itΒ 03 – Drifting away (Paradiso Mix)

    • Hello Marion πŸ™‚ I’m having problems deciding between two skies, just when I decide to remove the pic and put a new sky on, a friend comes along and says he prefers the first one :S. And someone just rated it a 4 – meaning I am putting the old sky back on πŸ˜€


        • πŸ˜€ it is bound to happen .. I am never 100% happy with anything I do – that’s PMS for you (perfect moment/or anything syndrom) – but sometimes I am less happy than others, and this is one of those times. In my original pic the sky is pretty blue, like intense blue and the grass is underexposed and I tried partial editing and everything and it all resulted in less natural effects. I will have to conform with this one and accept that not all pics are 5-star material :D. Sorry, I’ve just realised I might have an OCD πŸ˜‰

    – just miss a red bus (jokes just, I know you know me)… πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰
