After 82 votes and 20 hours before rollover this is one of my highest rated images on DPC: I decided to submit this one instead of another image a few hours before the deadline.

I was there to shoot a videoclip for a famous Italian company. Unfortunately they changed their mind about the advertisement campaign so the video didn't reach television and Internet. Still sad about that.

For my DPC friends I will link the video here

The link will be available until 15 September :)

ETA: This is not Dennis', but since since he's one my best DPC friends I am happy to have my name besides his ;)

Beautiful image, Alex. The video was also stunning. It's a shame they did not use it.

Congratulations Alessandro! This caught my eye immediately! The eye catching water swirls add a whole separate element to the image. And, I couldn't have done better myself :)

Hey man, next month I'll be there, so keep a few beers in the fridge :)

Has Dennis written all over it, maybe :)

Gorgeous in every way, has a bit of everything in it, mountains, waterfall, still waters and a dynamic sunset. Sharp, beautifully presented in all ways. Overall top stuff, and my top pick!

BTW I looked up Elysian Fields, and it comes up on google as a mythological place, so I'm looking forward to seeing where this is.

Somebody should call the Sierra Club, alert them to all the wonderful photos in this challenge. It's truly amazing. What a beautiful planet we have to live on. Thanks for posting this shot
