It shows the peak's shape well. Great photo. The peak is high on my list for this year.
Thanks, Scott. The mountain is really quite an optical illusion, since it's not really a peak, but rather more of a sharp ridge that extends back behind the top. From vantage points on other nearby mountains, like Apache or Toll, it doesn't really look like much... unless you know what you're looking at.
I know its not a peak, but I would still like to climb it. In late November, a few years ago, I went up there, but missed the summit by 400(?) feet or so. Conditions were not ideal. I'll probably bag it this late Summer or Fall.
Was this done in cepia?
Thanks. No it's not sepia, although I agree it definitely has the feel. This was actually the color of everything. It was sunset time.
You have a profound sensibility. It's a beautiful picture. Congratulations.
Thanks for your compliments!
that looks like something straight out of Lord of the Rings!! Nice one.
Yeah, that would make a sweet castle, wouldn't it!
this picture ! well done
Thanks, Tiziana. I like your paintings on your site!
It was really obvious this photo would become the photo of the week. No other was even close to this quality. Very nice atmosphere and odd color setting. Great shot, Jack!
Every now and then I see a picture that makes me go wow. This is defintiely one of them. Great shot. I'm jealous.
I am speechless...great shot!!!!
You're a lucky man to have been there at that moment. Thanks for making me lucky by posting this amazing photo.
Yes, I hiked in the ~7 miles and had just enough time to take off my pack, find a good spot, and put the camera on the tripod. It was chilly but I had to wait till later to put on my jacket!
Lone Eagle Peak always looks stunning, no matter the conditions or photographer, but this is the most attractive image I have seen of it. Great work!
Thanks! You're right, this peak is very photogenic... with a lake in the perfect spot too!
Even tought the place is photogenic, taking such pictures shows the art of the photographer !
