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

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.

Washington, my home... It really is a wonderfully diverse, beautiful land. Wherever I go, I wall always carry a piece of Washington in my heart. Wonderful capture; I wish I were there to see it in person.

I've completely fallen in love with Washington. The first time I visited, I felt as if I had come home, and it will become my home this year. :)

Oh, glad to welcome a new Washingtonian. =] It will always be home to me in my heart... I have philosophical and personal issues with the government, society, and the country, but... I love the land. Sometimes, I wish the modern world, any influence of man, could just... disappear, and I could be left alone in the grace and majesty of the land around me. Places that are like that are just magical when I find them, and I've found many such places in Washington.

That's one of the things I love most about Washington. You don't have to drive very far from the cities to find complete solitude. I love being able to lose myself in all that beauty, only if for a few hours!
