Man, how did I miss this one? Great shot, Kimo. Excellent lighting on Longs, and I love the clouds.

Thanks, just happened to be walking down the trail at the right time of light. :D

I really lucked out that day. Clouds can make an image, and in that case they did. Although Longs isn't too shabby to look at either.

Definitely - those clouds are a trip

Vonmackle,

That is a great reflection shot of those obscure peaks. I've climbed a ton in Colorado and don't think I've ever seen them before... :mrgreen: Don't tell anyone where they are, or it may get really crowded in that area. HA HA!
