Not quite as impressive as the arches in Utah, USA, but still a pretty little one. And I mean little. I could barely lower my tripod enough to get this angle. On the right you can see the path that is going on the mountain ridge for many miles. I took that path shortly after this (late) sunrise.
"Fereastra Zmeilor" - Fagaras Mountains, Romania.
Tech: - Nikon D300, Sigma 10-20, Hoya CPL, Manfrotto tripod - this is a blend of multiple exposures. Part HDR, part manual blending.
First light of the day hits Longs Peak in Rocky Mountain National Park. Below, in the valley, the sounds of Elk bugling was like music to my ears. Standing here, watching this unfold is akin to heaven.
Towering at 14,259 feet high, it is said that the climb to the top of the peak was probably first done by pre-Columbian indigenous people collecting eagle feathers. Pretty amazing to think that.
In camera HDR on my Sony a550, using a Minolta 18-200mm lens, Fotodiox CPL and GND , along with my tripod.
I hope you all like it John

On a cool June day in Grand Teton National Park, heavy cloud cover obscured the magnificent peaks of the range. While on a short day hike, I kept my eyes towards them, regardless of the clouds. Diffused light combined with sporadic breaks in the clouds created a wonderful effect on the rough and jagged rock, contrasted with the bright, smooth snow.

Zion National Park near the peak of fall is quite a spectacle. This classic view gives an idea of what a visitor to the park will experience. I remember well my first visit to the park 5 years ago, I had never been so taken back by a landscape.
The famous Watchman peak can be seen in distance on the left, as the Virgin river, the creator of the canyon, continues to sculpt the landscape.
