Beautiful shot Kamaly, hope you didn't cry when you saw the number!!

Thanks Guy - it's a pretty spectacular drive, though this is the first trip where the mountains have been visible when I've been on that side - so even though I only had time to get about half the distance north as I'd wanted to before having to get to the airport, it was a treat. And yeah - I hadn't realized where things were. And I'd uploaded the wrong file at first and deleted it - so now I really wonder what number that one had!

Well, this is way better than the 20,000,000 one. And it wasn't you, so don't be bitter. The clearness of these shots is just killer ... something we miss without knowing it here on the coast. There is always a little haze, even when we think it's clear. This is clear, crisp and very cold!

Great shot Kamaly rinds me of the southern Alps in NZ south island when we lived there. steve

Thanks Nawika, Tonia, and Steve ! Steve - I think these are our 'youngest' mountains - really rugged, and they rise right up about 6000 to 7000 feet out of flat plains, so it makes them even more spectacular. And Nawitka - thanks about the photo number, and about the photo. this wasn't at all a typical winter day out there, at least for one of my vacations. They've gotten at least 3' of snow each of the 3 different weeks I've gone out there, this time included. This view is usually just WHITE with low clouds when I'm on the airport side arriving or leaving. So it was a real thrill that it was so gorgeous. (But I think this is about the 50th shot posted from this one pull-off - sort of like posting a shot of the Eiffel Tower!)

That might be so, kamaly, but yours is the one with the mountains leaping out of that sapphire blue sky. Well caught!

Thanks n1w ! They're pretty darned spectacular. I could have sat there all day just looking at the mountains. And going through my photos, I found that I got some really clear ones from the plane that work as 3D shots - its amazing how razor sharp the ridges are. might be a few days before I can post those, though.

There are no words! What beauty!

Grand Teton? Sounds like my kind of place. It's nice to see you've got a Grand Teton, kamaly.

kamalyn on April 11, 2009

A belated Thank-you Andrew (Андрей824) !

And yup whoelius - seeing some of your mountain shots, you'd really enjoy this area - both east and west sides of the Tetons, as well as Yellowstone just to the north (which I have yet to make it to :< But as for having just one Grand Teton, it's a bit problematic ;)

Well I haven't seen the other 49! Great view, great pic. H

There's that freak again I'll bump the comment.

kamalyn on November 4, 2009

Well H - have you checked out the other 49 yet? LOL, another photo graced by today's spammer, popping it to the top of the list...

kamalyn on November 4, 2009

LOL You talking about Helen?

Thanks for that Guy! Looks like we both jumped the guy at the same time. It's a bit scary that not all of the spam is being prevented from displaying. But in a way, it's enjoyable seeing the shots the bot is dredging up!

Inspector H snaps on November 4, 2009

Haha, I was a bit taken aback at first when I saw that!!

What a spam attack today. Oh well some of us will be happy with just another view!!! ha ha H

kamalyn on November 4, 2009

LOL H- I agree! And one thing I always find enjoyable about the spam attacks: they bring up shots I haven't seen for so long that it's a nice little surprise!
