This is truly a work of art. The colors and the rolling hills down into the valley are so beautiful. It makes me want to visit that place. Great job!

It's a wonderful photo. You've succeeded in showing us an exceptionally peaceful scene. At the risk of sounding neurotic, I have to admit that I often see something menacing in landscapes. In contrast, the gentle slopes and warm colors in your photo have a calming effect and depict a pastoral paradise.

Thank you so much for the compliments. This was this past October in WV at my friends Chalet on the top of the mountain, was there helping her fix it up. That sunset was the second night and it lit everything up for just maybe three minutes like that, I took photos everyday of that valley, it really is a peaceful place. Lovey dubby Thank You!

Really a fantastic photo Sherri! You caught it just perfect.
I am amazed at how green the greens are--by the time we get fall colors around here it is yellows, oranges, and reds with brown Rolling my eyes.

I was falling asleep last night thinking about menacing landscapes Hilarious! You're right Zuzu, this one isn't, but there is often something menacing in landscapes...I like those too and wish I could visit them all Smiling
