Re-imagined unimaginable landscape

This is the third post in a string about imagining a landscape, while last post I reflected on being surprised on finding landscape photographs that I had not pre-visualized (imagined). My theory is that once you realize that a certain type of photographic image may result from a given set of circumstances (sorry, the scientist side of my brain), then the results in future situations can be imagined.

I am still finding that the resulting photograph that I composed still difficult to entirely per-visualize. You have to like serendipity and chance.

I find the resulting image to be very ambiguous, as well as mysterious.
