Alpine view in Tatra mountains

There are times when no matter what you do, you simply can't ruin the shot. If light is beautiful, if view is also beautiful - there's not a chance. I think that was the case with the image above. We (me and my fiancee) just returned from a whole day trekking and were pretty tired (ok, ok - exhausted) walking in the fog. But the weather suddenly improved and we experienced one amazing sunset. The view was clear and the light was amazingly warm. Just gorgeous. We spent next dozen of minutes shooting like mad not too loose anything, running from place to place to capture as many a beautiful photos as possible.

I'm really really happy about how the image above turned out - from the warm light on the house in the right to the view in the background. What's more I think that this is one of my best images taken recently.

Would love to live there BTW - view on such days is gorgeous :)
