Sunrise from Bald Mountain in Boulder County. Green Mountain, Bear Peak and South Boulder Peak (respectively) on the right. I think those are the first and possible second flatirons in there too.

I debated putting this in the Night Photos thread, but I think it works better as a sunrise :-)

Wow. Here's a learning experience. I obviously spent too much time editing the original image I posted and lost all ability to correctly judge color. I looked at it again after a few hours and realized how blue it was. The second image is what I thought the first image looked like after the initial edit.

Aww, Geojed. Such a cute kid. :D Looks like he's ready to start hiking mountains!

Some awesome shots on here. Interesting cloud formation in the Denali shots.

That's the Chandelier Ballroom in Lechuguilla Cave (Carlsbad Caverns NP). It's about 900ft underground.
