Cannon in Winter
As seen from Mt Lafayette, on the Old Bridle Path below Greenleaf hut. From above the hut you can't really appreciate the cliffs on Cannon as Franconia Notch is so narrow that the cliffs largely drop out of sight.

Whitney-Gilman ridge at center (casting a shadow).

That's a unique perspective on Cannon. I wouldn't have guessed that was Whitney-Gilman in the center if you hadn't mentioned it.

Thanks for the comment. W-G is easy to recognize as it's the only really big ridge on the face, but this is definitely a different point of view than you had on it. One thing I like about this shot is that you can see just how steep the talus at the base is.
