I love your gallery. Wow. I would love to make some images like you have.

Thanks for the kind comment on this image. I put it up in a hurry, like so many of my images. Upon reflection, I think I like the clouds darker at the top to keep the viewers eye directed to the center of the image with the clouds around Half Dome. So I have added another variation. What do you think?
