"Back Yard" Mountains

Images taken from my back yard.

I've used a large telephoto lens to zoom in on them.

The monochrome scenes of winter have inspired  me to experiment with converting

some of my color images to black & white.

Though I like the drama of  black & white I will never stop creating color images.

On this cloudy morning the sun broke through to shine on the mountains for a few minutes.

The last rays of sun lighting up Pioneer Peak (left) and Twin Peak (right). This is a panorama of 6 images merged together.


The last of the evening light is still adding a little color to the clouds, while a thin layer of haze created a dreamy, ethereal effect on the mountain.
