That's such a beautiful sunset! I rarely think of sunsets as strong but this one looks like the type of sunset that I could call that. I think that you captured the atmosphere very well with the dark landscape and just rays of light bursting out of the clouds, as if they're trying to reach us...

Brilliant photograph, as always! Keep up the good work. :hug:

Ahw, thanks so much Shora.
Was a really great evening on holiday at france. The day before I saw that gorgeous colors, but weren't able to find a place to take some photos , on which you can see the whole beauteousness. So, the evening I take the shots (so many of them) I drove about three hours to find a place where I can take the pictures. At last I found a place - an big and busy motorway in my back :D Great, that pictures don't play the sound :D

And, I feel very pleased about your description of the scene - it's soooo near the reality I had, makes me a little bit goose-skin. As if you were there ....

Thank you :kiss: and again : get well soon :blowkiss:

You're welcome, Christian. :hug:
It sure looks like a beautiful place to be. I've been dying to go on vacation somewhere with my camera but I have yet to find the right place to go to. Always wanted to see France with my own eyes. The more I look at your photograph the more things I seem to find, like the harmony of the shapes of the mountains and hills... absolutely beautiful! :heart:

I can imagine how many photographs you must have taken, I probably would fill my 4 GB memory card right up to the top if I saw such beautiful scenery that you found. As for the motorway... even the most perfect location comes with something slightly less perfect, I guess. :giggle:

That sunset actually reminds me of the first time I went to Berlin all by myself. I used to sit in a café, in their outdoor section, and watch the sun go down and didn't pay any attention to people around me. Those were the days of my life. :D Very different atmosphere and even though I was right in the middle of the city I could still feel the sun in such a magical way, just like your photograph.

Thanks so much. :hug: :heart:

I love the sunrays and the hills in the background. The contrast between the sky and the ground is beautiful
