Barry - thank you for your gracious compliment. :D I appreciate it.

I love clouds, and there are a lot of great cloud images in this thread. I'll add some. This is looking towards Longs Peak from the top of the IPW on Saturday. That was a spectacular day to be out.

And the scene looking over to Navajo Peak with Longs in the distance...

Clouds eh? This one turned out ok. I take lots of pictures from the top of peaks, often just to get the idea of what the peaks in an area look like, how one might climb some of the less well documented peaks, so I'm taking a picture I know won't be that interesting apart from that, but this one seemed a little better than usual. This is from the top of Frasco looking south, taken on 9/5, that big thing left of center is LaPlata, the pointy thing in the right front foreground is Casco.

Quiet possibly my last 14er of the summer!

Kimo- I agree, clouds produce some great contrast.

Awesome shot what were your setting , and film or digital?

It was digital, the Canon 5D Mk II and a 24-70. Without a tripod, I had to wing it, shooting two frames using the 10-sec timer, the lens propped up on a rock, guessing at focus because I could see nothing through the viewfinder and hoping the whole set-up wouldn't get blown into the lake by the gusting winds. Note to self to be much better prepared for these backcountry opportunities in the future. :roll:

@ Dave: My best quickie advice would be to start digging through this blog. Darwin captures some amazing images and does an excellent job explaining both the art and science.


Thanks to everyone for the camera advice!

This picture actually came to mind when we were on our way up to South Colony Lakes back is Sept. The stars were so abundant on that clear morning. I wish my camera could get a good star shot. I love this picture.
Seems like the times that I need a mountain the most are the times that I can not get to them.
