Is this the same peak as yesterday? I flicked back and forth between them.. very lovely views.. it almost seems like this is the other on a quarter turn as if you were passing around it.

Hard to comment without repeating what others wrote. It is a magnificent shot. My current post is also of a rock, a smaller one tho, with back lighting but i cud not get as good an exposure for it like urs without sacrificing the sky.

I love all the details you captured in the mountain, but could a graduated filter help bring more out of the sky?
