Wow, Alan. These are beautiful!
#1. Love the POV, colors, and clarity. Also like the diagonal of the path leading to the foreground gate. Very nice. The colors and textues are marvelous. Only teesy weesy thing that bothers me is the symmetry of the mountains. I'd probably have cropped the mtn on the left, but I think I can see why you didn't want to.
#2. Gob-smacking gorgeous! The sky is superb and yes, there is a definite glow. Would like to have been there. Love the grasses in the FG. Methinks this is a view of the same place from the opposite side? Lovely.
Alan, I forgot what you shoot with. Also I'd love to know your EXIF data. Helpful if I want to try something like these excellent landscapes of yours.
Thanks for sharing these.
