Went up the mountain tonight to catch the sunset. A lot of others were there...a lot of unseemly characters taking pictures....the nerve.....:G. This is a candid I got of this fellow absorbed in another scene-he was photographing Mount Baker in Washington. Bit of a lucky shot with the sun peeking through.......cheers.......Don

Great shot Don! Reminds me of when I went to Lake Louise at 5am on a Sunday expecting to have the place to myself...got out of the car and there's more people there with cameras than I could count....indeed the nerve

Thanks everyone. I knew it would be busy up there. It's a very popular spot to watch the sunset and also rise. I got lucky with this shot. Turned around and couldn't believe what I saw and quickly snapped it...cheers......Don

Your picture reminds me of the romantic painter

In many of his paintings he lets the (Beobachter) take the position of a person looking at a landscape. An example

That's a corker Don! (that means very good) In fact, so good, it is hard to believe that it wasn't a setup. Serendipity is a funny thing sometimes.

Cheers, Ollie
