Been wondering around a bit waiting for the next bloom, and decided to head north. On my way I captured this shot of Chief Mountain. Later, I processed it in Light Room. . .

Stunning Black and White Tony. A gorgeous sky that seems to dwarf the mountain. Wish there was a bit more detail in the large white cloud. Also like calling it a light room.

Very interesting to look at. I scrolled up a bit to simulate a pano crop just below the big white cloud. I liked it a lot that way.

Tony, another beautiful and powerful image. Maybe in black and white it should be labeled "Kings Peak" or "Tower Mountain"? I have to ask, what do you do up there? Are you like a park ranger? I went and poked around your blog. Very cool! I have always dreamed of living in Montana!

Thanks people for the complements. I did consider the crop mentioned by wally, it's a great idea.

What I do up here is, (http://www.tonybynum.com/gallery/4673015_gf5rX) I'm a photographer (portraits, landscapes, wildlife) and put in a few hours a week as a environmental scientist consultant, and if wally reads this again, in the past, I put some time in around the "triangle" for the EPA at RTP . . .

The reason for the title, is because that is the north face of "chief mountain," a very powerful and highly respected place of the blackfeet nation. It is not often photographed from this angle in fact most see it like this.

Very cool Tony. I bet it's changed significantly since you were here. We moved here about 14 years ago from upstate NY (Syracuse) and the change has been incredible. I moved here with work, and if you spent time around RTP, the largest employer out there is who I work for. I now have 20 years with them so maybe 10 years from now I can retire and move up your way.
If you ever need someone to hold a reflector on the shaded side of one of those mountains, just give me a hollar! :-)

By the way Tony, you probably know this but Chief Mountain was actually named Kings Peak and then Tower Mountain before it was named Chief Mountain. I'm a marketing guy. When I saw the shot I started researching.......... I have a habit of googling just about everything that hit's my brain. It's in my blood.

Hey Tony....excellent location....and beautiful conditions! I assume you were shooting RAW....is there any way to recover data in the blown white cloud? When you slid the exposure down....does the data come back or is it totally gone? I only ask that is because it becomes the subject in the composition as the eye is always drawn to the brightest part of a composition, and the location is much to lovely to compete with the bright spot. :~)

If it is, I would suggest a crop to fix it like Jim suggested. (and I am not a fan of cropping...lol)

If there is anything you can do to get just a tad of detail in the forest below the mountain as well I think it would go a long way....not much detail mind you...you dont want to draw the eye away from the mountain....but a bit more would help.....the shot is worth the little bit of extra time in PP to make it sing....VERY well done.
