Clouds + Mountains

Post by thedudeabides » Thu Aug 29, 2013 11:11 am

I've always felt that the combination of clouds and dramatic exposure make for the most epic of mountain pictures. Whataya got? Here's my humble entry

Cool photo!

Despite the weather destroying our plans for an Exum-Rdige summit we had some "cool weather" on the Grand Teton Last weekend.

Ryan Kushner has one of Pyramid that's going to win this thread, hands-down.
“There are two kinds of climbers: those who climb because their heart sings when they’re in the mountains, and all the rest.” - Alex Lowe

"There have been joys too great to describe in words, and there have been griefs upon which I cannot dare to dwell; and with those in mind I say, 'Climb if you will, but remember that courage and strength are nought without prudence, and that a momentary negligence may destroy the happiness of a lifetime. Do nothing in haste, look well to each step, and from the beginning think what may be the end.'" - Edward Whymper
