Over the Misty Mountains

Photograph by Volodymyr Zinchenko, National Geographic Your Shot

"This photo was taken in the Carpathian Mountains near Kolochava village in Ukraine's Zakarpatska region," writes Your Shot member Volodymyr Zinchenko. "It was the middle of October, when after weeks of dry weather, it started raining. There was almost constant rain from the village to the point where this picture was taken—my camera was the only dry thing." Zinchenko says the warm mountains caused the moisture to evaporate. "That and the autumn colors made the picture."

As they say, "you can take the man out of the country; but, you can't take the country out of the man.'  Great Photo. 

Brings back memories of my youth.

A stunning photograph of a really lovely scene. The mist hanging over the mountains veil like, on what one can hardly believes was a wet day. The defused sunlight caught on the ground adds to this shot, making all of it a wow factor. Love the autumn colors.  j.e.s........
