    probably in the upper 60's, till the sun went down. then it got chilly in a hurry! Johnston Ridge is only about 4250 feet elevation, and there was very little snow there, except on the shady sides of ridges and hills.

    I really like the 2nd one. It has nice colors (can they be brought out more with post-processing??). The 1st one is nice (though it's not as eye-catching b/c of the lack of colors as the 2nd), but the shadow caused by the railing on the right side is a little distracting. The 3rd one I like as well, but I like the composition of the trees in the 2nd one better!

    Good job man!

    Love what you did with the foregrounds in the first two. Thats what made it different and more special that the normal mountain shots. That red light in the second and third makes it very interesting.
