Good POV. I'm guessing that the soft focus is due to plane movememnt? If yes, nice shot, I never seem to get these shots this clear. If you got up in the morning and climbed a higher hill than this to take the photo, you deserve extra credit for being way too energetic....

Really great shot from the trails on the side of the mountain to the snow-capped peaks and the surrounding clouds. How majestic.

Wow, what a view. What a very nice picture to boot. Great texture, especially in the dark rock part at the bottom of the frame. I think its very good. It would be interesting to see this from a slightly lower angle showing a little more of the cloudscape/landscape that we can see on the sides of the mountailn. 8

what a view. real shame it's out of focus so much, but I am guessing it was taken from 35,00ft in the air at big speeds?

Wow! Now *that's* an impressive vantage point! I've only voted for a few images so far, but this certainly looks like a strong finisher to me.

Great shot, very crisp. It makes me feel cold. I'm giving you a 10 because I like it and I want to help make up for all the low votes you'll get from the anti-landscape crowd. Was this from a plane or another mountain?

Wow, fantastic shot. A little on the soft-side, but a 10 none-the-less.
