Titcomb basin, Wind River Range, WY

Titcomb basin, Wind River Range, WY

The sun broke through the stormy sky and gave me just enough time to capture this scene. I just intuitively ran and used the lake as a foreground. The reflection isn't perfect, but the water was still enough to transmit the gold light. It was taken during a week stay around the Titcomb Basin, near the Surprise lake.

Re: Very nice

Is that Gannett Peak?

Re: Marvelous!

No, Gannett Peak is quite a ways beyond. Over Bonney Pass, across the Dinwoody Glacier then you arrive at the base of Gannett.

Re: Marvelous!

In my opinion, it's not. It could be the Elephant head or Mount Lester. I had a tough times to find a good topo map.
The one I bought on a gas station in Bolder WY, is very savy on names.
