    Both are beautiful The second one though has a “land before time” feel about it… which looks rather different and nice.

      True! it looks completely preserved virgin, out of civilization. And the incredible thing is that it is 😛

    they’re both well shot and interesting. i think i like the bottom one better, because it’s less of a “typical” choice, if that makes sense?

      Hehehe, it does 😉 I wonder what our choices could tell about our feelings and perceptions. (I disgress, I know..)

        i think we tell people lots of things we don’t know we’re telling them :-). and i meant that the choice of landscape you chose to shoot was less typical. i think it makes the photo more unique. it’s kind of nice. i think we’re going to see lots of mountains submitted today.

    I agree both are great photos but the second one is more interesting for me. 🙂

      Do you also feel it is because it s looks intact ? I mean, still totally preserved? To me, it is typically the kind of place where I always catch myself whispering instead of talking normally 😛

        it’s like perfectly imperfect. like everything is in its proper place. 🙂

    I too chose the second one before I read the other comments. I like the low perspective and the rocks scattered in the foreground.

      Thanks Annette! I like the effects of the rocks too and I feel that the second one is more special than the first. Maybe it would have been better without the rock in the middle, but perfection is not of this world ;)Thanks again for stopping by!

    I really enjoyed the first view, with the reflection of the mountains in the lake; it makes the perspective bigger and enlarge the view. Great shots anyway, you lucky Kiwi! 😉

      Thanks 🙂 kiwi by heart only, lucky Frenchy traveler ! Thanks for your comment, i too like the 1rst for its feeling of wrapping the scene in blue. As you point out, it probably comes from the effect given by the perspective. Muchas gracias again!

    The first one–I love the deep blue colors and the rolling hills. Both are lovely though!

      Thanks Sasha 🙂 all this blue is so relaxing to me.. Did you know that light blue is actually said to have a calming effect? Reason why light blue is often used in maternity.. (Just showing off, learnt it yesterday 😉
