    shot this at sunrise yesterday...
    did a bit of focus stacking, but we are still not at peak for wild flowers as the Lupine have not yet bloomed. Was at my favorite location at just before 5am which requires at 250 am departure from my house and then a hike out.
    Ran into a herd of Elk grazing in the area, which is always a welcome sight.

    Very nice thanks for sharing
  12. Beautiful shot indeed. I know this spot but have never been there at the right time. For me I would have to leave even earlier than you. It is on my list but most likely I will spend the night a little closer. You got just the right amount of clouds it looks like to me.

    Such a special image! If you decide to print it, consider removing ??? in the very upper right corner and cleaning up all the dust and other spots. I think a sensor cleaning is badly needed! ;) 
  14. Congrats both on the beautiful image and on your effort at the age of 63!
  15. Excellent capture. Well worth an early morning excursion which in my opinion are the best kind of outings.

    thanks.. I have noted the issue to Nikon as this is a new D750 and I see the spots, so not sure if the shutter is tossing oil or such on the sensor.. but I noted that as well.. the spots..
