Watcha Ron,
excellent snowy mountain shot, dealt exceedingly well with the exposure.

Alpen view? don't look much like a yoghurt, fruit, and nut bar to meSmile
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.

Beautiful scenery Ron, excellent exposure, Adrian
Hi Ron,
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,

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 Smile

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

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

Ron, some of the comments made me laugh Smile 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!
