"The moment always dictates in my work. What I feel, I do. This is the most important thing for me. Everybody can look, but they don't necessarily see. I never calculate or consider; I see a situation and I know that it's right, even if I have to go back to get the proper lighting."

Chris Pereira from San Jose, CA, United States

this is an incredible shot! (incredible not in the sense that it would be impossible to credit, but rather that it's amazingly beautiful) and to think you took this from a moving bus is even more amazing I love the way the lines of the tire marks draw your eye through the frame and around the turn

18 Mar 2011 3:24pm

@PixeLuz: drivers are very experienced, as for passenger, i do not know how the rest felt .... I only remember I was lost for some period of time being on a mountain, so high, among this beauty, with beauty all around I have never seen before when was living over there ...

Ronnie 2¢ from Atlantic Shores, United Kingdom

I do believe this is the coldest-looking highway I've ever seen whatever you say about the balmy 0 degrees ! And I'm sure there's a 200-feet drop off that bend.

Franz from Baden, Austria

what a splendid winter scene, mariana! how i love driving on such roads in similar conditions, with the hoarfrost (or snow) on everything, trees and rocks and even the road! alas, we don't have these conditions as often as i would like! if you like, you can take a look here , at a very similar scene from near where i live!

18 Mar 2011 8:22pm

@Franz: thanks Franz ! I love your landscape too . Almost the same as mine, so romantic and attractive !

18 Mar 2011 8:58pm

brine from entre Paris et Valence, France

This winter landscape, come of distant Bosnia is magnificent, Mariana, of an almost unreal magic, a decoration completed for the story of the Princess of Ices, for example. These trees which frame the road, the ice-cold ribbon which winds in front of us, make as a delicate lace of hoarfrost. This photo, very soft in the glance, it is the magic moment which you offer us... Thank you and Bravo!

18 Mar 2011 9:51pm

Phil David Morris from Saskatoon, Canada

Beautiful winter wonderland, this is so enclosed looking, adding to the
extreme beauty, the trees looking like they are encased in white fur.
