This gets my award Chris for the deep almost 3D mono tones and the half veiled face which leaves me wanting to keep looking at it in case the cloud passes.
I'm also a fan of the silky water effect so it's a complete landscape image for me.

I have to say this is more than likely the best example of this loaction i have seen, the black and white adds to the appeal of the location and that includes any that i have done myself here.

Beautiful mono. Love the clouds hiding part of the mountain. The contrast is awesome.
Unfortunately I will probably never take a photograph as good as that!
IMO (and my wifes) it is stunning.
