I am unable to walk away from the mountain without climbing it. An unclimbed mountain tugs at my consciousness with the eternal weight of time itself. Until I've pressed my face into it's alpine winds, hugged it's ancient granite walls, and put it's weathered summit beneath my heal I'm unable to resist it's attraction.Knowing nature gives the mountain more time than she gives us adds urgency to the obsession. As has been said before; the mountain doesn't care.

It can wait forever. I cannot.

Nice.

I like "Sunrise in the Needles district." Did you do that with a composite of exposures?

Yep. Similarly, with "Sunset...", unfortunately, as the blurred stars indicate, I didn't have my tripod.

The spaces between is where I reside, In the moment is where I live, and my family and friends are who I love.

I haven't had a chance to work these over in lightroom yet. Resized by paint, which sets the .jpg quality very low...

Not a 14er, but still beautiful ... sunrise at McMurdo Station, Antarctica (photo taken by my sister when she worked down there earlier this year).

As if none of us have ever come back with a cool, quasi-epic story instead of being victim to tragic rockfall, a fatal stumble, a heart attack, an embolism, a lightning strike, a bear attack, collapsing cornice, some psycho with an axe, a falling tree, carbon monoxide, even falling asleep at the wheel getting to a mountain. If you can't accept the fact that sometimes "s**t happens", then you live with the illusion that your epic genius and profound wilderness intelligence has put you in total and complete control of yourself, your partners, and the mountain. How mystified you'll be when "s**t happens" to you! - FM

I took this sunrise shot a couple of years ago on Trail Ridge. The 30 second exposure created a couple of "ghost" images of the same elk.
