Being a good photographer also has something to do with being at the right place at the right time. Luckily I had my camera when I went to take a morning leak at the outdoor bathroom when I saw this guy standing and staring at the mountains beyond. I just can't go wrong with this shot. (Well, actually I took a lot just to make sure I didn't go wrong. ;)
The right lighting and the texture on the grass makes this a very strong photo to look at.
Note: This image shows some color banding in the sky on some monitors. I think this is may be an issue with flickr since the original image doesn't have this characteristic.
