yep, the snow. I never saw it until a friend looked at the photo and pointed it out. Now it is the only thing I see when looking at that scene.


Less snow here - Whitebark Pine at Kearsarge Pass campground

It's always fun to find animal shapes in nature. Although this photo's quality isn't on par with others on this thread, it does contain a fine specimen. This was taken just off the trail to May Lake in Yosemite in 2009.

800 px is too wide - gets cropped. So down to 640 we go

Doesn't matter if it gets cropped. You do good work! Thanks for sharing.

Near Summit Lakes a Agnew Pass, looking towards Mammoth Crest on a stormy day. Strange light turned some clouds yellow in the distance. Big weather was brewing over Banner and Ritter at the time and probably did something to the atmosphere:
