Frozen ridge

I've turned this picture in higher resolution to appreciate the frost patterns in the foreground... I've also slightly improved the contrast in this new version.

I took this photo at the begining of march in the Vercors mountains in french alps... I was waiting for the sunset near the cliffs of Font d'Urle... I loved how the light illuminated the frost lines, guiding the eyes to the valley.
It was a magical light for my birthday sunset... The best present Nature could offer. :)

Superbe composition et point de vue. Mais pour moi la partie supérieur est trop sombre...

Un paysage intense et très immersif.
J'aime beaucoup les lignes sur la neige qui conduisent dans le vide couplées à cette lumière du soir un peu irréelle.
Une très belle photo !!
