Thanks for the kind words, gentlemen. Matt, the Grand Mesa photograph is otherworldly. Great photograph.

I know it is not in the mountains, but wanted to share this amazing sunset over Lake Erie; not often one drops in your lap like this.

Well played, Kimo. Way to work that lens.

Thanks Cameron. Did what I could with what I had. Just wish I had another 2mm of wide angle. And some clouds would have been nice!

Cameron's jaw dropping shot of the Great Sand Dunes reminded me of a few I took near sunset over the years (the first two are from 2005 with a point and shoot):

Thanks, Mark. Yes, you've gotta love those dunes. I just wish they weren't so hard on camera gear.

Not a bad idea, just as long as I can have a cool nickname like 'The Strong Arm', or 'The Bulldog' that makes me sound more like a wrestling star than a lawyer.

Mark, I don't think I've ever seen the unique and very well done Dune composition in #1 "Dunes Surreal". That's a very cool shot!
