The weather was awful for the beginning of September - blizzards ,fog and thunders. We we coming back from the summit of Sovetov peak (4300m asl) in North Tyan-Shan mountains not able to see anything farer than 25 meters when the clouds stepped aside and this stone monster met us on one of the ridges. Fatiqued as we were we couldn't resist the desire to bypass the ambush. Mysticism? Possible :-)

A fine capture of late autumn or early winter weather in the mountains. The dark musty colors, the heavy clouds and the thin snow says a lot. Nice compsosition too with the lizard forming a triangle in one corner. I also note how the edge of that triangle and the bottom edge of the clouds makes two diagonals that cross just at the head of the lizard and thereby concntrating the attention to that. A good one!

Beautiful shot, very interesting stone structure. You captured those colors very well! I like the framing, too.

You cetainly show the bad weather here and also the depth of the place very well. I'm glad you didn't let the weather ruin your climb... or photo!
