Lord of the Rings

An early fall snowstorm blankets the Fitzroy range of Patagonia. Sorry about the cheesy title...

wow another amazing shot. The shadowy foreground is so well compensated by the reflected warm light. Jealous!

Only thing holding me from labeling this one of my favourite landscape shots on this site would be the slightly too-dark sky - is that a product of polarization/heavy ND grad? Looks like it could be lightened somewhat - it appears slightly darker blue than the reflection of it in the patches of rippled water, which would be contrary to nature/physics in that reflecting the sky, the water would absorb some of the light and so be darker in appearance.

Composition, lighting, timing, everything else is beyond superb, and I can only hope one day many years from now to have something like this to my name.

Amazing shot - perfectly composed. Lighten up the sky a bit and it will be perfect.

Utterly stunning! I can't give the sevens which this photo undoubtedly deserves so I won't rate.

I can find the rings, not sure about the Lord. I agree with some comments that the clouds are a bit dark. Great light, and great shot anyway.

You have some very truly stunning photos, but this one might just be my favorite. The composition just works so well. I think the foreground is especially interesting. Very excellent work!

Michael, you brought some amazing material from your trip to S.America, the Fitzroy´┐Żs alpenglow you caught here is tremendous!! the surrounding coldness, rounded and soft shapes contrast amazingly well with the granite spires, a photograph masterly executed
