Many thanks your all your comments on my last upload very much appreciated.

Also special thanks to Les and Dave for taking the time to award the image one of their UA again very much appreciated.

Back to the mountains for this one with the final rays of the setting sun turning the few clouds golden.
This is looking toward Mont blanc from the Italian side with the small peak on the thirds being the Aiguille du Midi (I think)

Thanks for looking
Regards Richard

The low sun and warm light catching on these clouds contrasts so well with the cool shadowed mountain tops: you were there at just the right time.

This alone would make the trip worthwhile. What a fabulous sight.

(I can also see several faces in the cloud, but my first impression was a golden bull rising over the mountain...the stuff of myths.)
