Land of the Valar by MaximeDaviron Land of the Valar by MaximeDaviron
The north face of the Monte Perdido, in the spanish Pyrenees. The mountain was masked by the clouds during 3 days, revealing the glacier occasionally... It was really cold and there was a strong wind, the ambiance was very impressive. It reminded me the world of Tolkien, Arda, with the Middle Earth and the Undying Lands. This place could have been the abode of some ancient gods or giants dragons.

What you have captured here is extroadinary, to say the least. I am suprised the man-made camera was able to capture the immense brillience of God's creation. As for critiques: I looove the cloud "noise" effect!!! I think the coolest part of the whole shot though is right at the heart - that lit-up blue illuminated glacier slice.... The light hits the mountain below the cloud gathering, and illumination chuck to reveal the beauty of the mountain in the light of the sun. Gosh, awe-inspiring! I am particularly partial to blue, so definitely a little blurred to other small details. But, great job - great job INDEED!
What do you think?

Oooo! And I see something else, The Mother Mary? who is holding a baby, to me it almost appears that she is walking upon the Earth Mother, as though it is a good tender day in her fields.  Fascinating~

I see a face, a form, laying on the mountain's side.  Where the white blossoms in the middle of the photo. It is right beneath.
