Thanks again for looking and for your kind comments.

That is a relatively clean image, i dont have any that you can view on the www, I dont post anything over 100kb, this is just a bit over that. did you down load it to your computer?

I usually try to keep my www files down around 50 kb, but i let this one get larger.

Why would you need one that does not suffer from digital processing? it does fine the way it is here. If you like, i'll sell you a copy of the image and you can view the print for yourself. the original file is a raw image from a d300. . .

Thanks again,

Tony

Tony,

This is such a beautiful photograph that it's a shame to have the jpg artifacting in the sky and loss of detail in the trees and mountain. That was my only reason for asking.

Tony,
that is one of the best landscape images I've ever seen. I'd be proud to exhibit that one in my studio. Outstanding!

Great composition and the lighting is really amazing.

Great work.

Jim

Now I'm really depressed! Great shot Tony and it makes me even sadder that I won't be able to get back up there this you.

The cold weather seems to be making it's way down to us in nothern Utah also. Frost 3 mornings this week and I drove through a snowstorm yesterday on the way to work.

Thanks for sharing the shot, you've made my day!

I'm pleased that you people like the shot. I must say that over the course of the last 8 years, i'v shot that mountain and that location 100 times and this one has to be the best of the bunch.

Quick story about the shot, (I feel stupid about this, but I'll tell it anyhow) as I was headed up the two med road to shoot the lake (it was my destination), I arrived to the lake a couple minutes late as I soon learned. I turned to check the light as the the sky above and behind me started to glow, the clouds were turning deep orange and the sky just went creamy, at that time I was only outside my truck getting my gear ready thinking I had a few more minutes; I glanced over at a mountain to the south of me and it to was glowing now I was it trouble, or so I thought.

I hit high gear, jetted from the truck, gear falling out of my bag (I dropped a battery, my remote trigger, a lens cap, a large lee 2 stop ND grad and who knows what else) and I'm sure I looked like a fool, lucky for me no one was watching, and ran as fast I could with a tripod and two cameras and bag, hanging off me. I even left the coat and gloves knowing that there would be no time to worry about getting cold.

I picked the first place along the lake that would allow me access and where I could get around the bush, I poked through it, opened the tripd legs and plopped it down in the water, feet wet and all!

While I was late by a minute or two, the fact that I had seen the sky come and go like this before made me move as fast as possible knowing that I had only seconds before it went away. The whole event lasted about 5 minutes then it was all over just as fast as it arrived. . .

I took few deep breaths and let out a hoot that I'm sure woke the ranger and a few tourists in the campground. I was so happy I just jumped up and clicked my heals together like I was Mr. Bojangles. . . I then gathered up my gear and just went home. . .

Take care and happy shooting. . .

Tony

Thanks for sharing this! I really needed to know others have suffered for their art.

Nothing to feel stupid about the story, Tony. It actually provides a very valuable lesson. Having said that, wonderful shot. It also provides a second lesson - the value of hitting the same spots over and over again. It is why I keep hitting Grand Teton NP. I have been going for over 10 years and people keep asking why I keep going to the same place and photographing the same things. :P LOL, I just not gotten what I wanted yet. That is not to say it is all crap, just that sometimes you really can still get a 1 in a million lifetime shot that no one else has of a certain subject. I have a few of those here in Manhattan of the skyline that I truly believe I have never seen replicated before. That is a rare thing.

James
