Challenge: Favorite Song (Advanced Editing VII)

Camera: LG G2
Location: Tornareccio (CH) - Italy

Thanks everyone for votes and comments. This is my 50th ribbon - when I started to join challenges I could never think to get a ribbon with a phone.

I was having lunch in Tornareccio, a nice village of my region. After that we were going to make new interviews for a documentary. We were late, but when I saw that stunning light I asked to stop the car and took a photo with my phone. No time to get the camera. Anyways phone did a great job!

No doubt it can be far from a literal interpretation of emotions, but not only children smiling or a beggars crying are worth of emotions representations. This epic landscape reminded me of this videoclip of the Gary Moore's song - I'm a guitarist and I love his music. I remember when I was travelling through Norway and how epic was driving with the right music with me - emotions are manyfold stuff.

In any case I guess my friend Riccardo (first time of two Italians at the top of one challenge?) deserved to win and I already told him that this morning.

Take a picture that evokes the emotion you feel when you hear your favorite song.either I'm a fool or people just don't read the challenge theme.

It's a gorgeous image nevertheless, but can you tell me what emotion this is portraying, I don't mean to belittle you in anyway btw :)

The rolling mountains peek out almost coyly from the curtain of foreground foliage, enjoyable to look at in itself, but the image is all about the quality of light before a storm. That comes across in a beautiful and satisfying way.
