I like the B&W conversion very much here. It goes very well with the subject.

Fahim this works so well and is a generous photograph covering a vast expanse of sky and mountains. I often feel that it would be great to write lines in the sky like that!

What interests me especially is the dynamics of how we view it. Do we always see it as a whole or perhaps do you also see two overlapping variants, as I do. One has all of the sky and the lower 1/3 of the landmass removed and the other has all of the landmass and the top 1/3 of the sky removed.

Having said that, I'm not advocating any other version would be better, just musing as to how we see this as a whole or made up of sub-composition?

Jerome, appreciate your comments very much. Thank you.

Asher, strange though it might seem; it is the whole that interests me. Although I too love drawing

in the sky.

A month or so ago, my grand daughter and me lay on the grass making patterns in the sky with the

few clouds that would pass by. I love the simple things!

Best regards to you both.
