Re: Just gorgeous!

Ahhh... thank you Eric. And to receive that comment from someone who submitted the best sunrise photos (plural) I have ever seen. I appreciate that.

Humphreys is the best...

Always great sunsets in July from the thunderstorms. Two shows, once for the clouds up where you are, second show from the light in the valley to the west.

Great capture.

Re: Humphreys is the best...

There are definitely some positives to a less than ideal weather forecast. I got half the summits I otherwise would have, but nabbed the good ones and had a great experience all weekend. Thanks butitsadryheat. And your current profile shot from less than a mile away is stunning in itself.

Re: one...

Me too Kevin. Was actually my first time in this area, think I'll be back within the near year though. A few more things to do there and I really enjoyed the place.

Amazing Colors

I agree with you about how iffy weather can be a photographer's delight- though a summit or two may be sacraficed. Nice job.

Re: Amazing Colors

Yes. More to a trip than just bagging peaks. Nice to go in all conditions when you can. Thanks for the comment boyblue.

Re: Pretty spectacular...

Thanks so much tahoecedar. Humphreys Basin is superb, especially the weekend of a poor weather forecast!
