Monument of the Sky

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest FIRST PLACE Winner
 
Monument of the Sky
Monument of the Sky
Peaks in Washington's Goat Rocks range stand amidst a sea of clouds at sunset. I used a 30 second exposure to soften the clouds and contrast the mountains and small aperture for the sun star effect. Captured from my camp near an icy summit. Fuji Velvia 50. Polarizing and 1 stop GND filters.

Beautiful! I like how the sun is a little off center. And how you captured the clouds. Very well done.....
