Start off what a beauitful picture.

The composition of the portrait view works well, you capture the trees perfectly. Your eye is drawn through the picture,starting off with the trees then to the mountains then the sky.

The focus is perfect, clear detail on the trees, even the ones in the distance.

The colours are lovely, they contrast and work well together. The mist looks beautiful in the picture! :)

Perfect capture of the early morning sunrise with the natural scenery with a addition of the mist :)

Great picture, i wouldnt change anything to this picture. The composition works well, i dont think it would of looked as good in a landscape or square form. The colours and focus are clear and good.

Great picture! :D

I know I've already commented on your photo before LeeAnne, but I couldn't help but notice how much your photo looks like it could have been taken the same time and near the same location as MY photo (except I know yours is a sunrise and mine's a sunset) it just made me smile, that's all =)  ----> Love Sigh by LASKANWLF

Yeah, they certainly have some similarities, especially with the colors! Thanks for the comment and for thinking of me. Made me smile too! :)

Truly beautiful photo!! Heart   I've lived in the foothills of the Cascades for 20+ years and have a direct line-of-sight view of Mount Olympus from my deck.  The Olympic Peninsula holds so many treasures once you get off the beaten path / road.  The western / rainforest side is especially magical.  Love And, of course, don't forget to vote for "Jim Buck"! :D (Big Grin)

:aww: Thank you! I just moved here myself, and I couldn't be happier that I did! I still look out in awe at the mountains every time I walk out on my front porch. It never gets old. :)

Congratulations on your new home! Clap    The mountain scenery never gets old for me either! :) (Smile)  

The only thing that gets old really fast is the clear-cut scars. :( (Sad)  While I understand the need for logging, but there are other environmentally friendly ways to do it; clear-cutting is simply the worst way to do it since it has so many negative 'down-stream' effects.

Thanks! I love it here. :) 
I do understand about the logging scars...makes some of those beautiful mountains hard to look at sometimes.

May I ask where you lived before?  Your username suggests Los Angeles, but that's just a obvious speculation on my part.  I grew up in Connecticut and moved here right after graduating college.  New England sure has its charm, and it is imprinted on me, but I prefer the Pacific coast to the Atlantic coast.
