High Country

Uploaded: June 30, 2007


The peak's face was in shadows during sunrise and sunset, so I decided to include more foreground where the light was more interesting. I was also intrigued by the star shaped pools of stagnant dark water scattered through out the area (there were numerous). I was told they are footprints created by dinosaurs, who still roam the area to this very day... ;-)
