Very very cool indeed - What a fortuitous moment with the clouds shrouding the mountains, fresh snow and sun hitting the tufas all at once. A wonderful image sir. Awesome processing Bill. You guessed it, I am up seriously late.

Chris Anderson from New york, United States

Wow wonderful infrared!

@Chris Anderson: Thanks for your comment Chris! However, it's not an infrared image it's a b&w conversion in Photoshop CS5 with some contrast enhancement. You did prompt me to go back into Photoshop and look at the b&w conversion using the infrared filter. It looked very much like the default b&w version. I attribute this to the fact that this is a morning sunrise capture and there is an orange alpenglow across the center third of the frame.

A beautiful shot with great layers. Love it.

QB from Canada

That is, of course, how monochrome landscapes should be done. The bird is a serendipitous (is that a word?) bit of brilliance.
