Default Windy Dawn at Roan Mt

Was back up at Roan Mt this past Saturday to teach a wildlife tracking class. Got there early to enjoy a little hike before the busy work, and to catch the dawn up at Carver's Gap.

Winds were fierce up on the Mt - blew over my tripod (and nearly blew me over!) several times. But was able to capture a few shots of dawn coming across the gap...

(do you prefer the non-HDR or HDR version?)

Still plenty of old snow in places, which combined with the powerful winds to make some amazing patterns...

Between the gusts, found some fine views of the sun coming up over grassy ridge.

Had to rush back down the mt so as not to be late for the tracking class, and then back home to the home park. It's already getting a bit spring-like at our lower elevations, so I hope to be able to share some warmer photos soon.

Hope you enjoyed a quick jaunt up the mountain, and will share your comments & critique!

A very lovely series. Thanks for sharing. I prefer the HDR in #2, and especially like the blowing snow in #3 and #4. And the contrasting colors and textures of the tree and sky in #7 are striking.

Hi Mole, I sort of prefer the "first HDR" shot, perhaps hint lighter but not quite as light as the second HDR, which is still great!
