A grand start to the New Year, new horizons.
Beautiful, Happy new year
Great Shot & Happy New Year
A splendid image Ron, all the best for the new year
excellent snowy mountain shot, dealt exceedingly well with the exposure.
Alpen view? don't look much like a yoghurt, fruit, and nut bar to me
Happy new year to you and Maggie.
A great image to start the year with Ron, gets me excited as we're heading to the Dolomites at the weekend, just can't decide what kit to take :-|
All the best for 2009.
Stunning view of this scene
Beautiful alpine vista Ron
Cold, clean, stunning. Have a very Happy New Year,
Great shot, happy new year

Happy New year
Super shot....HNY !
Lovely winter shot.
Beautiful scenery Ron, excellent exposure, Adrian
Very nice shot, but I think you need to remove that dark bit on the bottom edge to the left side it looks like a person walking across the bottom of the picture to me.
See you soon,
Wow - talk about start on a high note. Beautiful.
A pretty stunning view to make peaople dream. A great start to 2009.
Stunning view - I can smell that lovely clean crisp air - Nice one - Happy New Year
So clear, crisp and clean, like the light and shadows Ron, Wishing you a very Happy New Year
STUNNING is all I can say about this wonderful shot - Happy New Year
Excellent shot. Really brings across a feeling of cold and solitude.
A cracking mountain image to start the year with Ron.
Ron - its the totally uncritical effusiveness of the response to this shot which has prompted my response - bear with me!
As such there is nowt wrong with it - it is a Pretty mountain covered with snow - well focused, well enough exposed well .... etc. etc.
But actually it's dead ordinary! . oh allright just not that special .....There are a billion of 'em (I know I take 'em myself by the dozen) - It says nothing about the mountain itself - scale etc! - nor what you think about the mountain - ??
I feel at least something in the foreground to create a sense of scale is a starting point .. ??
Have a fine New Year
Hmmm....the exposure (haven't tried it myself but I suspect a snow-covered scene such as this would constitute a challenging exposure) and the positioning of the peak to allow a view of the range beyond set this apart from the "dead ordinary" shots David refers to above. Certainly a foreground feature (such as a figure or a hut perhaps) helps to provide a sense of scale, but on the other hand there is a foreground feature that helps to place the viewer where you, the photographer, were standing. It looks potentially precipitous, precarious, and as such adds drama to a magnificent scene. Hardly "dead ordinary" in my view.
I think David makes some valid points and I don't want to detract from them; but from the alternative perspective, (from someone who lives in Swindon!!) I don't find that ordinary at all and think that is a beautiful and magnificent sight, has a wonderful refreshing feel and provokes an emotional response in me
Happy New Year!
Interesting debate, as to response. Of course for me it is a reminder of a exciting experience at 12,000 ft. This was inspiring for me to set eye's upon natures magnificence. Keep those comments rolling. thanks. Ron.
Just getting to 12,000ft would be an achievement for me. hats off to you Ron for the climb and having enough energy left to take a fine photo.
Happy New Year
Happy new year Ron
Look like excellent walking conditions Ron, have a great New Year.
Wouldn't mind a little stroll to the top of there Ron!
Wow....what a scene indeed!
A very Happy New Year to you Ron....and all the very best in 2009.
Stunning scene Ron, perfectly exposed. All the best for 2009.
Beautiful light and exposure Ron and a beautiful composition.
Happy New Year to you and your Family Ron
classic... really nice..
Real class image Ron.
And a happy new year to you too Ron. A fine mountain view too Ron.
Oh YEA !!!!!!
Ron, some of the comments made me laugh I feel I have to go and try and take a pic of a snowy mountain now. Seems like DB and the others have taken thousands of ordinary mountain shots. I have not lived!!
Great shot anyway!
Sorry I nearly missed this one Ron, I'll get my crampons and ice axe out now.
excellent shot, truly stunning
