Title: Couché de soleil sur le bargy

On their own, the mountains and the dramatic sky, would make this a wonderful image. What grabbed me was Glasson’s use of the foreground.

The darkness of the foreground makes the mountain and sky pop. The “transparency” of the bare tree limbs gives the frame a sense of depth it might otherwise lack. It all comes together as a cinematic image that evokes the start of a journey. Lovely.
