    I've been sitting on this image since I got back from Montana, but figured I may as well share it and get some opinions. Even though they never really lit up during sunrise, I really liked the clouds over the mountains to the east. I found these rocks in the foreground and tried to put myself in a spot where they would lead into the scene. I'm still not sure if they add or detract from it, but I am convinced something was needed there.

    So any thoughts are welcome.

    This does not say "Glacier" it could be anywhere. But it is peaceful and minimalist and very well executed and processed. I like it for that.

    It's a nice enough scene that it doesn't really need to say where it was taken. I do like the foreground rocks - good call on your positioning for that. That's a cloud configuration that doesn't light up in ways we would like as photographers.
