The Peak by kkart The Peak by kkart
Mount Evans Wilderness, Colorado

It is so beautiful up here, being able to look out the peaks at eye level, and feeling like you are on top of the world. I guess though, you literally are being up here. there is a wonderful silence, along with a wonderful sense of peace. I hope I was able to capture that here.

Sony a550, Minolta 18-200 DT lens

I hope you like it
John

One of those classic amazing landscape images you see on photography books. Perhaps would have preferred a weaker ND Grad, as the sky and clouds look a bit too dark, having lost some of their natural contrast because of it.

Fav!

So nice that you don't have to make a nice little trek into the mountains to capture a scene like this...I again love how clear the photo is and how well the colors jump out. It gives off the impression that the mountain is smoking and that the large downtown area below is in trouble or something...yes, that was random, sorry.

What a gorgeous shot. I adore the mountains and snowy peaks more than any other natural feature. Can't wait to do some climbing myself this summer.

By the way, I love the new avatar.
