Pictorialist Landscapes

Challenge #19 in the Prime Subjects of Photography series. Hosted by Mark Scott Abeln.
Challenge has finished
Submit a photograph of a beautiful landscape. Your purpose here is not documentation: rather, you are producing a work of art, which evokes mood, a sense of beauty or sublimity, even spirituality. Be inspired by the Pictorialist photographers of a century ago, who heavily manipulated their photographs. Aim for art and aesthetics rather than technical proficiency.
