Mourning by kayaksailor Mourning by kayaksailor
This for the The Dark Side of Autumn Contest held by :icontrees-with-character:.


full valley view:


The loss of a beloved pet affects your life like a mist covering your view and robbing the day of color... some good friends unexpectedly lost one of their great Danes last night and this is a bit of a memorial...and now this good friend too, has died...you will be missed Rob...

I like this photograph, you've captured the bright blue skies, brooding mountains and the trees that litter over them brilliantly. The mist/fog (?) is also a very nice touch to this picturesque photo.
The only critique I have for you is probably that some parts of the shot is a little too dark and hard to see, so maybe you should have waited for the sunlight to hit a spot where this beautiful capture can be looked on with a clearer view. (Maybe it's your take on 'the dark side of autumn though? xD)
Other than that though, this is a really lovely photograph and your entry would definitely win my vote. (:
This is my first attempt at a critique, so it might not really be top-notch, ahahha.
What do you think?

where was this taken?

It is off my back deck :D We live in the foothills of the Sierras east of Sacramento, California at about 1400' elevation...if you could see into the distant fog, you'd be looking into the San Joaquin Valley and on a really clear day you can see all the way to the Coastal Range and Mount Diablo :love:
