Here we go again Pekka. This is one of those WOW shots, great dof, color, and sharpness.
Another great set of captures. Each one shows your skills and the work you must go thru to get these photos. This set does not appear to be a walk in the park. Looks like very rugged terrain. I also notice you are using a new camera I think. Thank you for sharing these great captures. I look for your photos on myolympus every day. I know photos like these are not daily capures.
KEEP THEM COMING and thanks for sharing...Dave

I agree with Dave this set of pictures is great...
Sure, for its visual effect but also for the efforts, physical and others, it required to be done, as one can assume, before its landing on our screens.
Congrats for that.
That said without any flattery.
Nevertheless, I mainly prefer this one to the others: colours, light, sharpness, composition, every thing is well-balanced and at the right place.
And what about this luminous foreground, not distracting at all, playing the role of a curtain half-open on the rocky scene, to increase the dof and the deepness of the gorge? Quite amazing...
One of the best landscape photos I had ever seen.
Bravo Pekka.
Best regards, Victor.

Have to agree with other comments a fabulous shot.

Thank you.

Thank you very much Dave.
Yes - I have indeed been quite inactive and a lazy poster for some months. Concerning my new camera, I bought E-P2 last summer and I have been very happy with it and nowadays I use it along with my E-3 maybe 50/50.

Greetings from snowy Helsinki. Pekka.

Thank you Victor.

Thank you for your generous comment :)
That Xihai scenic route on Mount Huangshan is about 14km long hiking route and takes some 8-10 hours to complete in a leisurely way. There really are some amazing sceneries there. I have walkes it three times and probably will go once more again next year.
Greetings from sunny and snowy Helsinki.

To Kiffin...

Thank you very much Kiffin for your comment.
I was lucky to be in that place just when the sun happened to illuminate those yellow branches and the mountain valley on the background. That Xihai canyon on Yellow mountains is simppy a breathtakingly beutiful place to visit. I have been ther three times and probaly go back next year.
Greetings from snowy Helsinki.

Someone once said that architecture was music frozen in space; I think these photographs make music dance in our eyes.
