North view of the Puy de Dôme from the top of the Puy de Pariou. The soft lighting of the end of the afternoon and these beautiful clouds created a delicate and classy mood.

I really like this shot!
The contrast between the green and the dryness is superbe. It creates a really interesnting path for the eye, and then those gorgeous clouds give the dynamics to the composition...
Superbe!
Altough I think there's perhaps a bit too much dry part on the front, not allowing the perspective to develope on it own. But otherwise, this is a great image!!!
congrats :heart:

Thank you. I see what you mean about the dry part. If I changed my angle looking more upward I would have 50% sky 50% ground and I don't like this balance. If I could choose like in a painting I would have made 1/3 foreground 1/3 green background 1/3 sky. In photography you have to compose with your environnement even if it isn't perfectly as you want sometimes =)

Le puy du pariou j'ai du y monter une 100aine de fois mais je ne l'avais jamais vu comme ça avant...
Bravo, très beau rendu. J'imagine que c'est à cela qu'on reconnait les pros.

J'ai été contente de retrouver cette très jolie photo du Puy de Dôme ici, parce que j'habite tout près. Enfin voilà.
Magnifique en tout cas!

J'habite à une cinquantaine de kilomètres du Puy de Dôme, dans la montagne thiernoise. Je vais donc assez souvent faire des photos dans le parc des volcans.

Je suis bien d'accord ! La lumière du jour et souvent fade et écrase les choses... Et pour le coup tu t'en es très bien sorti ;-)

C'était la fin d'après midi le soleil était assez bas on le remarque avec les ombres au premier plan ;) Avec un soleil de milieu de journée cela aurait été bien plus difficile.

Plus récemment on est allé au Puy de la Vache dont tu as du voir la photo verticale de mon frère. C'était un fort joli coucher de soleil, j'aurai un cadrage horizontal et plus large à présenter ici.
