Gorgeous. Lovely. Stunning. Amazing. I could keep coming up with adjectives to describe this panorama, but as accurate as they might seem, they still lack something that would perfectly describe how wonderful this photo is (wonderful doesn't even do it!). But, as they say, "a picture is worth a thousand words."
I love how crisp and clear the scene is. Everything's in focus, which I love to see in a shot like this, and while black-and-white does a pretty good job in conveying drama and power (I admit, I'm biased), if this weren't in color, I probably wouldn't have glanced at it. Color isn't for everything, but it works fantastically here. The lavender-grey of the mountains and the morning skies, the soft blues in the sky and the water, the greens, yellows, and oranges in the trees - they all come together in a symphony of color, and it's breath-taking.
Thank you for sharing nature's glory with us. Thank you.
