Beautiful shots! I particularly like the lighting and the clouds are "your friend!"

Best,

I've watched your posts for the past several years. And I've always been impressed with the quality of the photography, and with the natural beauty of the region. All I can say is that I wish I had your talent, and your back yard. Thanks for posting, and please keep it up.

Beautiful series Jeff...

we're past color season here in Utah... this looks very similar to the Rockies here a month or so ago. Hope you see the color we had here this year. Where is this location?

Beautiful scenery. Unfortunately I cannot see your pictures in their proper color. This monitor in the hotel lobby makes everything blue-green and writing comments is frustrating as the keyboard has some of the keys in funny places.

Jeff, It was a pleasure going through your pictures. I could not decide on the first five pictures, but neither could you. It is like the changing mood of a mountain. The last mountain picture show a little more detail of the mountain but the valley was too dark.
To me the first castle photo makes the boldest statement. The very nicely framed picture of the second castle photo wiil make a good postcard.
The last picture with the layered mist and mountains is stunning. The wonderful foreground, bottom right, give the picture balance and perspective.
My overall favorite is the stone castle nestled in the bracken ferns.

A great series Jeff. I have to say that I like all of them. A beautiful part of the world, in fact we came fairly near to you earlier this year when we drove over the Cols Aspin, Soulor, Tourmalet and Aubisque. Simply stunning.
Can I be cheeky? I'd love to know what postprocessing you do to acheive this great effect.

These all done with D800 in Camera HDR - you were close - that's the Pic du Midi in the shots, about 15km away from my home, and astride the col du Tourmalet
