Photographer's Note

There was not much efforts needed to make this picture. I didn't 'make' or 'catch' it. It caught me. I just released the shutter and knew immediately that I will not through it away. Sometimes these things go spontaneously, sometimes I 'dance' around a lot trying to 'get something' (or more often nothing).
The mountain is named Mt. Bavski grintavec, 2445 m high, a beautiful but nasty object of aspiration in east Julian Alps. Very crumbly rock and about 2000 m higher than any possible hiking starting point from which you can 'attack' it.

Scanned by Nikon CoolScan ED-IV. Cropped. Three masks made - sky, mountain and forest. Each part adjusted using Curves. The sky blurred with Gaussian blurr, 2 pix radius at 4.000 pix picture width. Resampled to 800 pix width. Mountain and forest sharpened using Unsarp mask, level 65, 1 pix radius. Hand burning and dogging with brightness and contrast brush here and there. JPEG level 33 (Corel PhotoPaint 7 notation).
