I like the feeling that this photograph gives -- it gives the overall feeling of a fresh new day, the sense that today, perhaps, there might be only peace and beauty. That love of all that is good in the world might triumph over all that is ugly and evil. Somehow it seems like there should be dew on the flowers, but I don't see that in the photograph. I like the way the sun is captured with a halo of gold, even as there are lowering clouds over the mountains. The sun and flowers symbolize optimism, the clouds seem to bring a sense of the cold realities of the planet they drift over.

Are you sure this is Romania? It looks more like the Garden of Eden to me!

Amazing catch of the morning's first beams... incredible colors and diversity of hues and tones here, beautiful mountains, awesome clouds. Rhododendrons are the State Flower of Washington State (where I grew up) and I really miss seeing them, now that I live far from there in a desert.

Man... those mountains look rugged and incredibly fun to climb. It's been too long since I walked through someplace as lush and living as this... thank you for sharing your art with us! I hope you get to visit these places often.

thank you, sure it's Romania, we have wonderful nature here, but under the right angle and light most of the places could look like the Garden of Eden...

Thanks for the reply!
I've lived a few places that look quite a bit like hell... but only Western Washington really looked like a Garden to me.
