  • i miss the hustle & bustle of the big city.. anyways, great capture.. :)

  • that sure is one huge mountain.. excellent capture.. :)

  • the cloud shapes and lights/darks are working so well with the mountains.

    and i love all the blues – feels like the photograph is as much about the color blue as it is about anything else. in a good way.
