Beautiful shot, Frank! I love your wide view. Their north side - we don't usually get to see this angle!
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Elizabeth, no we don't,not our usual route.

Unusually thin looking clouds Frank, but full of water it would seem.
Frank L Croston.: I think there had been some rain when we got back, Andrew.

Whenever I'm in the US, I always try to imagine what it must have been like for the early explorers. Imagine driving a wagon across the plains and then to be confronted by the Rocky Mountains, for example. Ilike your view here with the covering of clouds over the peaks.
Frank L Croston.: I've said exactly the same to Elizabeth, I cannot imagine what it must have felt like.
Great cloudscape here, Frank and the rest of the shot is as impressive.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks very much, Mary.
another fine one
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Chantal.
Amazing clouds once again Frank, it's such a vast landscape.
Frank L Croston.: We get some great skies here, Brian, and yes it is huge.
Woo - terrifically atmospheric.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Tom.
