SKYWATCH FRIDAY-THEME DAY

This was shot just outside Aspen, Colorado. It is daylight on the mountain tops but the late afternoon brings shadows to the valley. The mountain appears to be "smoking." It really is too young to do that. I hope this will be a nice addition to SKYWATCH FRIDAY and THEME DAY.

  2. Beautiful mountain!
    Those shadows creeping up from the valley so early in the afternoon make quite a difference to the growth pattern of the vegetation of the shady side.

  11. It's a great addition to sky watch. So beautiful. A bit of naughty mountain to smoke like that and let out such big puffs of smoke too. Funny were the thin upright contrail comes from.

  15. Great photo, B2. A twofer. Isn't this one called the Maroon Bells? I read somewhere that it is the most photographed mountain in America - no wonder, it's photogenic.

  23. The "smoking" stripe creates a line of symmetry that looks as if it will split that mountain.

  25. The Maroon Bells, a familiar site, I lived in Aspen in the late '70's. Very cool shot!
