You know what makes this image? It’s the lighting. This same tiny waterfall on a non foggy day wouldn’t be very impressive. You’d probably take a quick look and keep walking.

yeap its true, last autumn i had so amazing light effect, i didnt have my camera with me then (sad), the sun went set and everybody know how nice its it, and on the opposite part of the sky (east?) was a HUGE cloud which blurred and reflect light even more beautyful, whole earth was seenable like trought some filter, it was WOOOOOW, i was walking abadonded train rails... oh ah :D
