Challenge: New Year's Resolution VI (Expert Editing)
Collection: Artworks
Camera: Nikon D600
Lens: Samyang 8mm f/3.5 Aspherical IF MC fish eye
Location: Garda Lake - Italy

For the ones who are wondering: this place is real... well, almost real. We were visiting Garda Lake (the biggest Italian lake) and we reached Malcesine, one of the towns along the lake. We hoped to visit the castle (there's a stunning view over the whole lake) but it was very cold and we had only 20 minutes before closing - the visit takes 1 hour.

So we searched for a way to reach the lake shore there. And after descending steep stony steps I found this sort of cave with a stunning view. The left side of the cave doesn't exist - I added it to make the image more appealing.

And of course this is not a night shot, the sky is created from scratch. We were there at sunset :)

Thanks everyone for votes and nice comments. I absolutely didn't expect to win, but it's definitely a great beginning of the year!
