WOW WOW WOW
Photo of the year! I don't think I've ever seen such a perfect lenticular cloud. And when I see them, I usually only see blue, and shades of grey. It's nice to see some green.
What a photo!
Don't miss that this is not my shot. Dennis Stilwell contacted me some time ago to see if I would be interested in contributing to his website, which I would like to do but haven't done yet. He's not a climber but a VERY avid hiker, so he isn't inclined to join us here. The other day he sent me this one and I asked him if he'd mind me posting it, to which he agreed.
The fun part about this is that I thought I recognized his name when he first e-mailed me. Sure enough he is in my college yearbook! :-)
Everything was said ...just enjoy ...
Very cool, Bob. Wonder when this was taken? Too bad I missed the view that day! Super submission.
great picture: light, composition and the mountain. even 5 stars for this one....
Well done Dennis and Bob!
Totally awesome shot.... how could this get anything but 5 stars???
You can see such a nice cloud in IRAN on top of DAMAVAND Mt.
I'm so happy to see such a perfect lenticular caught on Hood. Last week we got caught in one camped at Twin Rocks. As benign as it looks, the winds completely flattened our 4-season tent over about 6 hours and then broke some poles. We were forced out of our shelter around midnight and descended in a whiteout, despite standing being a struggle. Scariest experience of my life.
one of my favorite photos on SummitPost! That is one amazing picture.
This is a really amazing cloud formation. Thank you for sharing this picture with us.
I'll pass on all your comments to Dennis as I doubt he's seen them. Thanks! -Bob
Oh, right! But thanks for posting! ;-)
I wish I had Dennis's negatives again. With my new film scanner I could get much better results from them. I'll try to get with him sometime this winter and try again. He had several great photos, but they had too much contrast for the old scanner.
One of the best I've seen on this site.
Thanks for the vote and the comment. Dennis has some fantastic photos on his website and on his virtual hike CDs. This one is a good example. -Bob
When I climbed Rainier a similar cloud was starting to grow as we descended. Some of our party were hidden in the cloud behind me. I don't know what it was like, but I suspect the winds were high and of course it would be white-out conditions. Not fun.
Your friend nailed it with this one!!!!
Dennis does some great work with the camera, and he's out there more than just about anyone I know, so he sees lots of good stuff. Thanks for the comment! -Bob
