  3. Lovely billowing cumulus clouds – the trees provide a perfect foreground contrast

    • Thank you, Andy…it was wonderful to watch the clouds move-in over the mountains.

  4. I wonder if those trees are spruce or fir. It looks like they’ve had a rough life. Avalanches?

    • I’m not sure about the exact type of tree, Allen, but I know we have both conifer varieties here…. These trees are literally up on the top ridge of the mountains, so no avalanches for these, just the extreme cold and un-blocked wind.

  5. This works very well – a simple (in a good way) composition. I imagine that it would be interesting to covert to an HDR image to really pop the colour of the sky and clouds.

    • Thank you, Adrian. I don’t have a good tool for conversion to HDR, but I imagine that greater detail would be nice to see.

  6. I see two Muppets arising out of the trees… Grover talking to the Cookie Monster? 😉

  7. How strange Scott, i was working on a cloud photo just like that today. You have to be at the right place at the right time…. and you definitely were….. and I wasn’t………. your trees are full of interest and character………excellent, especially with the overall blue light.

  8. Gives an incredible feeling, doesn’t it!

    • Yes, it does, Terry…up on the ridge with nothing above, but the clouds and sky…wonderful. 🙂

  9. Powerful image. The great cedars against the sky. You caught them at the perfect cloud moment too!
