    I liked this one even though it's kind of odd. With nothing to ceate perspective it's hard to tell what you're looking at for one thing. The lower left corner has some conifers, pretty good size, probably 50-70 foot tall trees which are about 2000 feet lower than where I am standing. The sharp ridge is well over a half mile long I'd quess.

    This is from most of the way up Hoosier Pass in the central Colorado mountains. Unusual for me, I didn't do any cropping on this one.

    being a sky fan i really think that missing skyline would enhance perspective & define your photograph

    Here is one from a about 5 miles south of the first one. This is Mosquito Gulch. I believe it is a popular area for cross country skiing.

    Ian, that's one thing that makes that picture odd, I rarely leave out the skyline. This was trying, successfully or not, to capture the sense of the gulf of space in that canyon.
