I called this picture "wind barrier" because of the strong west wind which prevented the rising clouds from crossing to the west side of the mountain. This was so efficent that the weather remained sunny on the west side while the whole east side was engulfed in clouds. This is mostly visible in the clouds from the upper part of the picture where you can figure out the direction of the wind. I hope you like the picture! Thanks a lot for your comments/critiques!

down size the frame and the distracting lettering...i think this is a powerful shot and doesnt need a lot of frame treatment
bet you were cold up there

Not only is this a very well composed shot of a dramatic landscape taken in great light, but that amazing weather effect makes this even more fascinating.
Its really amazing how it is sunny on one side of the ridge and cloudy on the other; I've never seen anything like that before, despite spending a lot of time in the mountains.
Great shot, and very interesting. Well done.

A stunning illustration of weather phenomena at work! The influence of land on weather patterns is well known, but seldom is it so dramatically shown!
I think you could afford to crop the lowest portion of the photo, with the foreground grass. Otherwise, sharp, beautifully composed.

great capture. Looks almost a little unrealistic.
Very well done.

I can not understand that pictures like this one get no more attention from TE people. There's a lot of things to learn from them, both from the photographic and the "learning about the world" point of view.
I like the way you composed it and the DOF you used to make it very dynamic. Colors and light are nice, as most often in your contributions. The dipping limestone layers which constitute the mountain are superb.Thanks for sharing.
