Cathedral Lake and Peak sunset. YNP.

3 exposure HDR using Photomatix. Some localized levels adjustments - it was a stunning sunset as the light danced across the trees and peak. This was captured right as the last touch of light was moving off the peak.

Thanks for the votes and kind comments!

I think I've worn this one out for 2012... :) Although it would be great to hike/snowshow back in as soon as the pass opens up. Seems like it could be an awesome winter scene.

Man, so upset I couldn't get a permit for Cathedral when I visited in the summer! Awesome shot without the need for super high-contrast processing.

One of the things I love most about voting on FS (which I did earlier, I'm back to comment on a few now) is the opportunity to visit such beautiful far-flung location thanks to my DPC family and you've managed to take my breathe away with an absolutely stunning image of an absolutely beautiful location.

Stunner. Pre-Dawn? The light and the mirror lake seem to suggest that. 10.
