Wolfgang,

This is so extraordinarily simple and yet so strong and spiritual.

This is like an ink graphic!

Wolfgang,

What is that vertical line coming from on the right. I discovered what I thought were rain drops from a window. So I looked on Photoshop to confirm that you had used a small aperture to obtain such a deep depth of focus.

I was surprised at the texture using curves to decrease brightness. It almost looks as if this has been printed on a piece of paper with a fold in it and then re-photographed!

So how was this done?

Asher

Hi

it's all nature, no postprocessing ...
The photo was taken on a wall built of heavy stones, standing at the edge looking down on another wall turned 90° to the basic wall. This is the "folded" line.
The whole scene is snowcovered which "produces" the texture ...
Originally I thought of calling it "folded sky" ... ;-))

Wolfgang, brilliantly observed and translated.

It works on many levels. The vertical shade shift threw me for a while, I really wanted it to be straight illusion of a miniature mountain range or of giant grasses but the mystery was compelling.

You are one clever bastard.

Now I understand, Wolfgang.

A job well conceived and superbly executed! I was so taken by the panorama of a snowy field!
