Thank you Duncan - it starts about May and lasts until late August. We might get low humidity / clear views for a day or half a day after a hurricane!!!

All the best - David

Superb scene indeed. The foreground trees add nicely a new layer in it.

Beautiful gradation of tone across the image * David*. I'd like to think that it's because where you live that gives you an edge, but it's more likely that you have a better eye than most!!!!

Lovely shot David. Nice layers and the mist in the valleys adds a lot.

Absolutely stunning David. Love it.

Wow.... what a tremendous reaction to a shot that I thought was only just salvaged!!! We set off at 5.30 in order to be 'somewhere' by sunrise and Looking Glass Overlook was where we chose. For better or for worse!!!

Overall we were unhappy with the shots we took from this location, but as I say; this was workable.

So many thanks Gyöngyi

I agree with you Sixten - so often we try to get things out of the shot only to find they add so much when we see it later.

I have almost no eye for these shots Jeff - thats why I enjoy shooting with others who do! I am so glad to see you have come out :-)

Thanks Keith - the mist in the valley... now there is another story - sometime!

Its not Scotland Elaine but its the best we can do!!

Many thanks y'all - David

A terrific shot Mr B., it has a dream-like quality to it!

A humongous "like", ~ D.

The dream like quality results from the time of day David - I was still asleep!!!

Many thanks for your humonguous generouseness - David

Love those colors and layers. The sun is rising here at 5 am this time of year, gotta get out of the house a wee bit earlier to catch it here. Cheers from the great northwest!

I'm not sure Kenneth but I'm thinking summer has been cancelled here. It rains and rains and rains and today we had a high of 65F for goodness sake!

I'm sick of taking green and yellow water-falls (we have lots as you can guess) so this rare dawn and some lightning has been it!

Many thanks for your kind comment and sorry for the rant - David

Wonderful scene. Love the colours!

Tis great to be up there Andy before the dawn and the crowds.

Cheers - David
