In a way, it looks more like a painting than a photo.
I've planning on that one for a very long time. The snow could not have been have been better timed, although my freezing hands might have begged to differ!
.... and such an incredible story too.
This is a beautiful photograph of art.
I appreciate your generous compliments.
Very harmonious. Congratulations with such a great picture!
Thank you, Igor
The composition made the entire trip a success all in itself, a most climatic ending to an amazing adventure! Standing before the scene, my tripod on a spot I had earlier marked with a cairn, I experienced incredible elation! It was a truly rare encounter.
Mitre Basin, the first of two background peaks to the right of the trees is the Miter. Back during more foolhardy days, I climbed and fell from the Miter damn near killing myself!
What a picture!!
It was an epic moment! I was freezing my butt off, too!
