Oh my, the invasion of the bare-naked trees into the Shutterland continues...
This is an absolutely gorgeous shot, Ms. Petra. The road curve, framed by old fences, is such a valuable nuance. I see that Pegasus is back to his beloved Muse.
Petra: Thank you very much for your great comment Mr. Viktor! Glad you like the picture...its one of own favourites to....How can you tell Pegasus is back to his muse?
Kind regards Petra
A wonderful image Petra- reminds me of a favourite Cartier Bresson I have. That lane winding of into the mist is so mysterious, and your toning so effective.
Petra: Can you give me the title of that Bresson picture David? you made me very curious now....and thank you for mentioning his name in my
Much apreciated!

A wonderful poetical foto again! I especially like the curved way leading - I don't where to- the tall trees -dicht bij elkaar staande- and the mist haze which has covered almost all.. Hermann Hesse would have said: This is my foto:
"Seltsam, im Nebel zu wandern!
Einsam ist jeder Busch und Stein,
Kein Baum sieht den anderen,
Jeder ist allein."
-although here one tree can still see the other one - this is comforting!
Petra: Dank je wel Philine! Voor je mooie woorden....Zoals altijd weet je mijn foto's weer te verfraaien met prachtige teksten!
Hartelijk dank....

You know what I'm going to say before I say it, Petra: this is how I first remember seeing you here on SC. It is you at your best, IMHO!
Petra: Yes i knew what you were going to say Ginnie!!! lol
I am glad i had and still have the chance to experiment and learn and learn, but i also still like the style i started with.....only with the knowledge and skills i have now.... Thanks my friend smile

Beautiful shot - the serried rows of tree trunks looming out of the mist and the sinuous curve of the road are highly aesthetic. Like the toning too.
Petra: Thanks for your very kind words Annie!
This is just MAGNIFICENT!
Petra: Thank you!!! smile

Quality shot, great atmosphere & works well as a sepia shot (don't usually like sepia!)
Petra: The sepia was allready a bit visible in the natural shot John...thats why i thought to apply a bit more. Glad you like it...

Wow Petra, the tones in this shot are to die for. Fabulous.
I could tell from the thumbnail you had pulled off another corker. I like the way that the shot draws you in and follows the road through the avenue of trees...
Petra: Thanks for your words Sl....very much appreciated!
Just gorgeous and you know why!
Petra: Thanks Nigel! smile

Ahh well - I found you second... wink Echo all the praise for this image. I particularly like the way there are two lines of atmospheric perspective we can follow. NB I think it's very warm and cuddly that you have a photograph of you know who" in your favourites on *that* website
Petra: lol@ warm and cuddly grin
It was great to meet you Richard! Thanks a lot for your comment.
