The light at the end of the world by alexandre-deschaumes The light at the end of the world by alexandre-deschaumes
"The crawling mist overwhelmed this valley during our visit, making it
even more “magic”. This is, I guess, the moment I personally liked the
most during our stay.

It may be some more surrealistic image in its slightly experimental
processing, but it is linked in some way to the visions that haunt my
spirit. The ochre transitions through the softness of the mist… And
the oppressive side of the mountains that were surrounding us… The
sun remained quite nebulous behind a thin cloud veil (which I normally
hate), but the mist changed everything. A thousand ideas came into my
mind when it arrived; we were all running a bit everywhere, I also got
bogged down once more in a bunch of bushes that were too big, I
couldn’t get out and yet I had to hurry.

Then there was that man, more or less out of nowhere, with only his
stick and jean shirt… A thin silhouette fitting pretty well to the
mood, I would have liked to use him more but I didn’t dare disturbing
him… Besides the mist was leaving quickly, it was… really a particular
moment, and rare… out of time.

I am simply speechless. This is probably one of the best images I've ever seen! You made it dark, mysterious, mystic...
The guy in the middle seems to be a zombie or something like that... a creepy creature searching in the unknown.

We cannot say if it's the sun or the moon appearing in the top of the photography. We cannot say if it's day or night. The mountains are one of the key elements to the spectacle.

Congratulations! This is an awesome work!
5 :star: in everything! I can't give you more. Keep up the good work, my friend. You're in the right way to the success!
