Hi guys, it's been a while since I've posted so I thought I'd share this shot with you guys.

It was taken in the Dolomites in Northern Italy at about 7,500 high, as you can imagine the weather in the mountains can be very fickle and minutes before I took this the whole mountain range was obliterated by cloud. This was a grab shot as I didn't have a tripod and I was on a guided tour so time was very limited, I decided to HDR the shot to try and get more detail out of the sky, ideally I would of bracketed shots and combined the images in PS but considering the limitations I think it came out ok?

Thanks Doug, I'm glad to be back, hopefully normal service will be resumed lol.

 

 

It was indeed a brilliant trip with lots to see and do, we have been to Italy lots of times but this was the first time we touched on the extreme North. I prefer the South for the food, people, culture and buildings but the scenery in the North was breath taking.

 

Cheers Chimpy.

This is a beautiful photo Chimpy, the buildings are picturesque, the only thing I would remove would be the tour bus. It detracts from the scene IMHO.

Photos are a moment in time, that can only be captured once.

We missed you !

And I only recently learned what the term "chimping" means...

I thought it was some vague reference to humanity's nearest cousins - (NO, not the Irish,,, :P)

Anyway.

I love the shot and the way you conveyed the scale of the cliffs.

Cheers Steve and Rod, glad to be back.

Rod, I've had the nickname "Chimpy" for years before digital came around. It came about when a local photo shop ordered some equipment for me and they got mixed up with my surname and called me " Mr Chimpus" my mates thought it was hilarious and that was how my nickmane came about haha, it's quite apt for this digital age. Haha.

Chimpy.

Hahaha!

Mr. Chimpus ! B)

If that was me, the first thing I'd do would be to change my name by deed pole to "Mr. Chimpus" !

I like the formality of the "mister".

Sounds like a Marvel comics character whose super power is to be able to fling full chimpanzee nappies at his enemies...

If only you'd copyrighted the term you'd be quids in as they say.
