Great capture, Rich! The clouds are very well lightened, and look really impressive.

Cheers!

Greetings Inessa, Thanks for visiting Morraine Park and commenting. I only got up the Longs Peak trail a couple of miles. There was almost no snow anywhere on the ground. The wind was blowing and there was plenty of water crystal moving along with it. It was completely unpleasant. The clouds and snow was filling the cirque between Mt. Meeker and Longs Peak so there was nothing to see. I decided to bail and go to the lower elevations of the park. Here I saw the storm blowing in over the continental divide into Morraine Park. It's dramatic to see the storm coming. Hopefully winter will be here next week.

Greetings Billy, I stopped in Morraine Park to take this picture because the storm clouds were pouring into the west end of the valley off the Continental Divide. Unfortunately we didn't get much snow, just wind and clouds and some ice crystals. Maybe we will see snow on Tuesday or Wednesday.

Cheers,

Rich

Saludos Redi, Gracias por visitar. Gracias por maravilloso comentario. Tomé muchas fotos aquí. Me gustó el uno con el árbol. Me alegro de que te guste. No fue un buen día para la fotografía. Sólo unos pocos disparos.

Saludos,

Beautiful photo, with such dramatic lighting! The scattered trees give a great sense of the scale. Thanks for sharing!

Greetings Eve, Thanks for visiting Morraine Park and commenting. It was kind of a down day for me because the weather was so severe up high with the wind. A front came through with a vengence, but alas, dropped no snow. The view of the continental divide from this location is always spectacular. The Park has a cabin here that they use for the artist in residence program. I am in the drive way here. Selected artists get to stay in the cabin for several weeks and display their work in the Morraine Park museum. Some of the work on display is just amazing. What an inspiration they must get from living there.

Cheers,

Rich

Greetings PeSchn, Thanks for visiting Morraine Park as the storm moved in and commenting. Unfortunately, no snow. There were some very nice clouds as the result of the front moving through. Made for miserable hiking!

Cheers,

Rich

Hey Richard, You have many beautiful new photos but this is the one I like most! Wonderful colors and nice but lonely tree in the middle of your pic. Well done!

Greetings Eva, Thanks for visiting Morraine Park and commenting. The weather was coming in over the continental divide and made the mountains look threatening. I tried the picture with and without the tree and the lone tree was the best. I am glad you liked it. Thanks again for stopping by.

Cheers,

Rich

Greetings Bjorn, Thanks for visiting Morraine Park and commenting. The storm clouds on the continental divide were amazing. This is the valley where the majority of the elk herd spend autumn and early winter.

Cheers,

Rich
