I hate to echo everyone else and not say anything fresh, but all those photos are fantastic. What a special place.

Thanks for sharing Mav - a fitting tribute Quentinc.
As others have already said, this is some great work, from one of my favorite places on earth. Makes me want to be there in September.

Amazing pics Mav! I have seen some beautiful mornings up in HB but none quite like yours. So pleased to see you back on here!

A great tribute. I love the "colors of Sunrise shot. HB may very well be my favorite place in the Sierra and I am often there in the early fall when all has gone shades of orange and brown which I love just as much as when things are green for some reason. I have always enjoyed the shifting views you get of Mt. Humphreys from almost anywhere in the basin
