886m - Gary Howells Photography
Pen y Fan is the highest peak in South Wales and the southern United Kingdom, situated in the Brecon Beacons National Park. At 886 metres above sea-level, it is also the highest peak in Britain south of the Snowdonia mountain range. #landscape #wales #mountain

For the last few years I've tried to improve on this composition hoping for better conditions than the time before.  Only a few months out of the year will yield this fantastic side lighting so my window is relatively short.  At the same time I'm always hoping for low fog/mist on the valley floor.  On this day most everything came together.

Sunset above Ucka mountain (1.398m), Croatia
Zalazak iznad Kvarnera


I was so lucky last weekend regarding sunset... you see why :)
Colors were amazing

Imao sam toliko sreće sa zalaskom prošli vikend... vidite i zašto :)
Boje su bile lude

Combined with the clouds it looks unreal... but it was like this 
U kombinaciji s niskom oblacima je bilo nestvarno

Wish you all Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
Sretan Božić svima

Fire Rainbows
These colorful offshoots can often be seen during the summers of middle-latitude areas, such as most of the United States. What they actually are is a large halo of refracted light, and despite their nickname, they have nothing to do with either fire or rainbows. They only occur when the sun is at least 58 degrees above the horizon, when there are cirrus clouds in the sky that are filled with plate-shaped ice crystals. The refraction of light is always parallel to the horizon, and because the arcs are so big, only sections of them are ever commonly seen—which is why it can look like certain patches of cloud are on fire (or throwing a rave). The proper name for these things, in case you ever need to impress a scientist, is ‘circumhorizontal arc.’

Ein Bild von letzter Woche. Nachdem wir eine schöne dramatische Morgenstimmung auf dem Grenchenberg erleben durften, wurden wir, Adrian Wirz und ich, von einem eisigen Schneesturm überrascht. Später machten wir uns dann auf den Weg zur Hasenmatt, die höchste Erhebung im Solothurner Jura. Aufstieg im dichtesten Nebel, bot sich dann später doch noch ein paar Mal bezauberndes Licht. Dieses Bild hier entstand nach Sonnenuntergang über das Nebelmeer vom Mittelland

An image from last week. After we had a dramatic light at sunrise at "Grenchenberg" we, Adrian Wirz and I, hit by a heavy icy snowstorm. Later on we hiked to Hasenmatt, the highest point in the Jura Mountains of Solothurn. While hiking up in thick fog later on we were lucky enough to have some sweet light for a couple of minutes. This picture here was taken after sunset viewing over the swiss "middleland".

Fabulous. Have fallen in love with the Black Mountains as we work on Landmark Trust's rescue project for Llwyn Celyn at the mouth of the Llanthony Valley. This will help me check into that headspace even when elsewhere!  http://www.landmarktrust.org.uk/support-us/projects-and-appeals/future-projects/
