Coincides nicely with Misha's two recent submissions. Nice shot!
I havent seen a new photo on SP thats got my attention quite like this one. AWESOME!
Truly a breath-taking photo. I'd be interested to know what type of camera/film, etc.?
The whole thing was spectacular - we were bivying on a small ledge, big enough just for 3 people and had this just in front of us.... simply amazing and one of the greatest moments I had in the mountains. Roman used 4MP Canon Powershot in automatic mode (I think).
I love the light reflecting off the snow. Personally, I'd photoshop that damn contrail right out of existence.
hmm, I didn't notice the contrail until you mentioned it! :-) Wonderful photo!
Strange clud formations in brilliant light!!!
I guess it was a windy night?!?
Congratulations for this shot, one of the best I' ve seen on this site!!!
the best part is Roman shot it at 14,000' engaged in a climb...makes it ten times better than some road shot. Excellent work. Cheers!
for this excellent photo!
No doubt about it.
outta this world... More please
Photo of the Year Indeed
Don't know how I missed this one till now?!?!?! Amazing sight; fascinating and scary at the same time, simply jaw dropping! Fantastic capture! Is it possible there was no storm from this spectacular cloud which looks like the edge of some crazy front that is approaching?!
Nope, that's the typical 'Sierra Wave' cloud formation. They're actually pretty darn common --- just from this angle and time of day it looks spectacular.
Thanks - no storm from this one, next morning the sky was pretty much clear. I think the storms in the Sierras usually come from the west, from the ocean, this cloud was hanging on the east side of Sierras.
Amazing. That pretty much sums it up :-)
Really can't find the words........leaves one speechless. Great shot. Absolutely breathtaking!!!!!!!
thanks everyone - it's going be a year since we were up there! Gotta go again soon, pretty area.
