Fantastic work Mark. They're all so peaceful. My heart rate drops just looking at them. Thanks.

That shot of the needle is pretty much perfection.

Here are a few of mine, one close to home two far, far away.

This one is taken not too far from where the Curiosity Rover landed :lol: (Driving towards Swakopmund, Namibia):

Wow - these photos are stunning! While I can't even come close to what everyone else can do, here are some recent shots I took...

A burning promise: the fiery sunrise illuminates Mt. Baker as sdkeil, CODave, AZScott, JD, Alex, and I ascend the Coleman Glacier a few weeks ago:

This was the sunrise today (8/9/12) during my run, also taken from my iPhone:

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

Nice to see this one get rolling again. Great shots, everyone!

Here's one of The Spider and The Fly just before sunrise a few weeks ago:

Thanks for the kind comments. Few things in life are better than sunrise and sunset on the trail. I was lucky to see both from Piney Lake on Sunday.

I like those HDR pics, Caroline. Turned out really well from a phone. Has to be your eye. Mt. Baker looks surreal.

Kimo, that Needle shot is great!

Mark, love that shot at Molas!

Here's one I took from the Grand Mesa this past weekend. The haze/smoke in the air made for a very red sun.
