Surreal Mystery Morning   Featured in PhotoFlash #065
BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
 
Surreal Mystery Morning
Surreal Mystery Morning
This was an early morning scene from The Palouse that I spotted a few days earlier and continued to return to wait for the right light. I liked how the layers of rolling hills created some nice depth but I got some mist involved which increased the depth and mystery of that morning. The weather was going back and forth and everywhere in Washington State there were smaller versions of these lenticular clouds

I think this is, quite possibly, the most beautiful photo I have ever seen! I don't usually ask this question, but here goes ... Did you do much photoshop work on this? Whether yes or no, this is sheer perfection.
