El Capitan

This view greeted us as we arrived at the Guadalupe Mountains National Park. I slapped my extender onto the 200mm lens and started shooting. Looking back I wish I'd setup the tripod, framed this shot, then let it grab some HD video as the clouds blew over the top. But... I really like this shot, though. :)


Best appreciated if viewed large. The detail really comes out and you can see just how large this mountaintop is.


Because of the coulds we chose not to go to the summit. Next time!!! Next time!!! Next time!!!
