le premier plan accroche bien l'oeil par ses couleurs fortes et son aridité et le second plan apporte une note de douceur pour compenser

Sarah from Suisse, Switzerland

Wow!! Fabulous! You put me to shame... I'm going to have to go and climb Mt. Pilatus now seeing as I live so close (relatively... same country at least!).

26 Jan 2010 1:43pm

@Sarah: ha ha.. I think every photographer goes through this feeling.. I see some of the photos from UK and feel the same.. In any case, Mount pilatus is a beautiful place that you should visit.. Check out the live web cam feed.. it is beautiful covered in snow.. You can go to the archive and see the sunrise..:).

Self-Indulgence from Chicagoland, United States

Mars before lift was extinguished. The red in the rock makes it very plausible. I really like this, the clouds make you question is there land, water.. dreams below.

26 Jan 2010 7:39pm

@Self-Indulgence: :), Thank you very much.

Vikram from Chandler, United States

I like the colour saturation/tones here! This scene is as if its a seashore!

26 Jan 2010 8:11pm

Louloupix from NEW YORK, United States

Your see of clouds is gorgeouse and your red rock full of details.
My only issue with your picture would be your title I think ;)
When I think of Mars I think of a burnt red soil or the War god where your picture is cold but very sweet.

26 Jan 2010 8:36pm

@Louloupix: ha ha.. Thank you very much.. I meant to say this is out of this world with a little fun for silly tuesday.. Thank you for your comment, very much appreciated.

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

Nice texture seen in the boulder, but an interesting element was the double layer of clouds that you have captured nicely here. it really illustrates the height you're at.

26 Jan 2010 9:27pm

@Steven: Thank you Steven..
