Treasure by JanPusdrowski Treasure by JanPusdrowski
On my recent trip to Tenerife I was robbed and my car was broken into. I lost my entire equipment (worth 3k). I am now starting a donation site on gofundme to get back on my feed.
 You can read the entire story there. I provided an English as well as a German reading.
Maybe some of you like my work even if you are not familiar with it. I am just trying everything to be able to start photography again.
I am helpfull for any help! Maybe you share this on your FB pages or donate some bucs.
Thanks for your time! Jan.

Outlook near Schrammsteine Germany. One of the most impressive sunsets I've seen so far. 
Golden Light illuminated the valley!

Thanks to the unknown women who showed us the place. This was definitely the trip's treasure.

I am honored to have so much attention on this image lately, but I don't know how this is possible and how this happend.
I dont know how to thank that person for the feature, but I really am honored!

In Waves of Golden Light by WordsOfFarewell
Add a Comment:
The timing of this shot is brilliant with the sun peeking out from between two passing clouds over the gorgeous landscape. I especially like the vibrant yellows and greens enhanced by the sunlight and contrasted by the shadows, which also give life to the rocky textures mixed in. It feels as though I can just step into the image and bask in its warmth. The vantage point is very key here, surveying a diverse landscape and capturing all the details, including what appear to be little homes lining the frontiers.

I do find the tree leaves rather blurry or fuzzy as though the wind was blowing while the picture was taken. It does not seem like I can pick out their details as well as I can with the rocks, unless of course, the leaves actually look like that.

Great photo. Good job.

I believe you have chosen this particular one-word title because of the golden light that covers the land and makes it look so adorable. This image however is also perceived by me as a 'treasure' for the eyes. It's not some image one just takes a quick glance at, but a magical view people feast their eyes on at least for a couple of minutes.

You managed to capture a very wide area, the point where You were standing seems to be the perfect one to seize the atmosphere of the sunset as well as the marvelous terrain.

Looking at such view, one can almost feel the wind on his face and the last warm sunbeams before dusk. It's wonderful.
