Initial observation lead me to rapidly conclude that the actual vertical wasn't as impressive as presumed looking at the road at the left hand corner, that is, until I got back to my senses realising that the road was ABOVE the clouds !
Great picture !
Back home , the only place I know of where I can take such a picture is Megantic mountain which on a clear blue day can give the most impressive views that certainly make the treck worthwhile , that is , if the low clouds decide to show up !
"May your trails be crooked,winding,lonesome,dangerous,leading to the most amazing view. May your mountains rise into and above the clouds. May your rivers flow without end, meandering through pastoral valleys tinkling with bells,past temples and castles and poet's towers into a dark primeval forest where tigers belch and monkey's howl,through miasmal and mysterious swamps and down into a desert of red rock,blue mesas,domes and pinnacles and grottos of endless stone, and down again into a deep vast ancient unknown chasm where bars of sunlight blaze on profiled cliffs, where deer walk across the white sand beaches,where storms come and go as lightning clangs upon the high crags, where something strange and more beautiful and more full of wonder than your deepest dreams waits for you- beyond the next turning of the canyon walls."
