    So, again I've been trying to keep up with the forum, with the editing and with controlling the amount of space on my MacBook.

    Recently I've taken to hiking, my better half has always had such a love for the mountains and has hiked in every season in many places I could only dream to go and experience...and of course shoot.

    She agreed to work with me and my vertigo on getting me to these places, these marvellous rooftops of the country, We've done 4 peaks in 3 weeks and I could not be happier and more full of life for doing it, and sharing in what I only ever heard as stories or saw through iPhone photos.

    This shot was taken as we arrived for our hike last weekend, the target was the peak of Vihren, The tallest peak in the Pirin Range. Standing 2914m this marble giant is a marble beast, and I can tell you, not one easily climbed.

    This was shot before we started out, As always, C&C welcomed.

    That is a gorgeous photo. Clearly worth the vertigo risk.

    Thanks Barb! This was before we even started the climb, This one pushed me for sure, the last 800m covered 250m in elevation, basically hiking up a 45-50 degree slope, so worth it thought, absolutely amazing, I've a pile more I'm going through right now and the cloud play over the peaks was really something so looking forward to sharing a few of those too..

    Thanks Jeff, Really it's been every weekend for the entire summer with the exception of one of two that I've actually been at home, I love to travel around the country and it's great for me but a nightmare for the hard drive! Also, with working during the week and travelling weekends, it's hard to find the time to get some editing done..

    Thanks all, I really can't wait to get back in to the mountains, but we have to take a break to recover a little, although of course we have some more travelling planned this weekend into the mountains, it will not be hiking them!

    Really nice composition and light. Loving the back-lit mist.

    Nice pic, real beautiful, at first I almost thought it was a fantasy painting.
