A color original as clouds passed over Alpamayo in Peru's Cordillera Blanca. The clouds wisps were only prominent in this image, compared to other taken during a brief period of clearing. I would love to combine all of the best details of each photo for one image, but the shot just never happened. That's why I have 4 or 5 images that are keepers. f11, Gitzo tripod. I left the blue cast that was apparent in the shadows, as I thought it contrasted nicely with the warmer sunlight hitting the left side of the peak.

Exif: F Number: 11, Exposure Bias Value: 0.67, ExposureTime: 1/30 seconds, Flash: did not fire, compulsory flash mode, ISO: 100, White balance: Manual white balance, FocalLength: 285.00 mm, Model: Canon EOS 5D Mark II
