The South Face

Morning light on the south face of Mont Blanc in Alps, after a cold night near this unnamed lake...
Unfortunately, the sky was a bit empty, with no clouds, but there was also no wind so I could get this reflection...

Excellent transition from the rocks to the reflection, Mount Blanc, into the sky.

This is so beautiful!! If it were my picture, I would have included more of the sky and less of the lake...but that's just my opinion.

It didn't need anymore clouds to make it stunning - beautiful shot the way it is.

Your photos are so amazing :D I think someday you should make a calendar of them. Nice shot of Montblanc :D

A very nice shot, clouds, while they might obviously add something, really aren't necessary at all. I like the fact that this image basically has no real "center", it almost only consists of the foreground with the stones in the water and the background with the mountain, I would probably count the reflection on the water to the background in this case. I know photos of that sort where the foreground consists completely of water, which, while still pretty good I always feel then that something's missing, but here the foreground is well-chosen.

You did not need clouds at all in this shot my friend. Simply marvellous!

I think clouds for reflection was a perfectly fair trade-off. Stunning photo.
