Fresh Snow in Rocky Mountain National Park.
Another shot from my day off spent shooting yesterday .. and crawling along some pretty treacherous little roads ..
I knew when I saw these mountains draped in the clouds I wanted this image .. I spent a bit of time up and down the little dirt road finding what I felt was a nice framing of them .. hope you like it ..

What a splendour! What a wonderful landscape! Your picture makes me envious, because snow, here...negative report!
The clouds around the summits give a good mysterious atmosphere and the curves of the cirques look really great.
I think we'll have a christmas without any snow...
Greetings from Germany!

comme j'apprécie beaucoup la montagne sous la neige, aucune chance que cette superbe photo échappe à ma critique.
Une capture parfaite de l'ambiance de l'hiver dans les monts américains.
On aimerait y être avec toi.

A beautiful winter wonderland with the clouds hiding the massive peaks. Love the little bit of blue in the sky,

I imagine how hard this day was for you, but at the same time very rewarding, not only for the photos you got.
For me, this one could justify the whole day, as it is gorgeous. Photos like this make me kind of sad for not knowing such beautiful wild places. Those mountains are one of the things that fascinates me more in the US.
Many TFS, Regards, Jose.

How beautiful is this? It's like the scene on a Christmas card and it's making me feel very festive. Superb sharpness and DOF - a great shot.

This is what I miss about winter! This is a nicely framed photo. There is no winter in my location. The last winter I had with snow was 13 years ago when I took a trip to Germany to attend a friend's wedding. Where in Colorado do you live John? It's as though the RMNP is your backyard. I envy you.

Lucky you John! All we've got is wall to wall fog. Snow covered mountains with the peaks lifting through the clouds - wonderful.
