The Lost Mountains by MaximeDaviron The Lost Mountains by MaximeDaviron
Bivouac at 2750m. Sunset over the mountains and the cloud sea...

I'm back from a trip to the Pico d'Aneto, 3404m. It's the highest peak of the Pyrenees. We got on the summit sunday morning :)

This is a very beautiful shot, and it seems like the view from up there was great! I love the feeling of motion in this photograph, how the clouds seem to be flowing over the sides of the mountains like water. They look very soft and light in comparison to the harsh mountain-side. The angle of the shot is also very nicely done -- I feel like I'm looking into the scene, rather than just looking at it. Although I do like the colors in the sky, they feel a little washed-out to me. A stronger orange or warmer yellow would have made a nice contrast to the black and white of the foreground. Also, the photograph seems to lack depth. The white on the mountains masks the contours that they could have created. You could try to play around with lighting a bit to create more shadows and highlights for this depth. Overall, I do really like this picture!

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning!
Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.
Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on a monday night at 12:00a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you and watching you bleed to death.
Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if u copy and paste this to ten comments in the next ten minutes u will have the best day of ur life tomorrow. u will either get kissed or asked out, if u break this chain u will see a little dead girl in your room tonight. in 53 mins someone will say i love you or im sorry

That's a simple wow for how the clouds roll over that scarp.
And your bivouac at a level as the highest I ever have climbed, I simply never have been at a 3400m mountain. :icon8omglookplz:

Pretty cool shot and great conditions. I just feel like a little shorter focal length would've been nice to get a little more sky into the picture. To me the picture feels a bit cramped.
