Icy Summit Pyramid of Chopicalqui
The icy summit pyramid of Chopicalqui, in the Cordillera Blanca of Peru, emerging from storm clouds after our descent from the peak. No views from the top, but spectacular scenery as the storm cleared out. By Howie Silleck, July 9, 2007.

I'm loving the composition and colors, this is stunning! I can only imagine it's that much more impressive in person.

Thanks mrbynum - to tell you the truth, it was actually pretty meanacing in person that day - it felt like a big, icy, not at all benign peak in the storm.
Thanks again,
Howie

The detail is amazing, and the colors in the ice are beautiful. I think this will be the next POTW! (It should be anyway!)
