Velen by Dave-Derbis has great perspective and color with a beautiful, hazy fog that lays like a blanket over the vast scenery.

Velen

By
"Velen" - Saxon Switzerland, Germany

A beautiful golden sunrise over the Zschand valley with the rugged peaks (ltr) called Lorenzsteine, Heulenberg, Teichstein and Winterstein, all seen from a peak called Kleiner Winterberg in Saxon Switzerland. The whole area strongly reminds me of Velen (known from Witcher III). I really like exploring the area of the Bohemian and Saxon Switzerland with all it's ancient hiking paths, mystical forests and wild mountains where once real robber knights used to live and walking through the woods was not as safe as today.

After studying weather forecasts and the sun's position at sunrise for several weeks, one Friday evening I thought I'll give it a try. Getting up at 2:00 am and driving for two hours through the night plus one hour of hiking in the dark to be there one hour before sunrise once again payed off this time. (Although I had hoped for more mist but you can't have it all.) It's just an awesome and really enjoyable view to say the least.

It looks like a pair of large creatures nuzzling each other while watching that lovely sunset. I love it. :)
