At an altitude of about 9100ft in Golden Gate Canyon Park, CO. Clear sky just after rain (at that altitude), a delicate cloud formed. Nikon DX format, full frame at 24mm with CL polarizer filter. Love to know your views.

Such a simplicity and an image represented by colours.
The Blue Green with a tinge of White just makes this simple yet so powerful.

Simply amazing image, Shankar. I loved that blue. IMHO, only small improvement could that the hill top could have been a bit off center towards RHS. That is only a minor point. Great capture. TFS.

Excellent composition here Shankar. Bringing uniqueness in landscape photography in my view is very tough. Everything typically ends up as a "frame that covers an expanse" using a wide angle lens. Amazing composition here triangle at the bottom which gets beautifully balanced by the little cloud which stands well against deep blue sky. Your signature is seen here in this image ! What a title to go with !!

Thanks for sharing..

Oh my word! I am writing this after about 10 mins of staring into the image. Its a perfect visualization of one of my all time favorite songs, Louis Armstrong's evergreen song - "What a wonderful world".

"I see trees of green........ red roses too
I see em bloom..... for me and for you
And I think to myself.... what a wonderful world.

I see skies of blue..... clouds of white
Bright blessed days....dark sacred nights
And I think to myself .....what a wonderful world."

View this picture with the song playing in the BG, and I would truly believe Its Indeed a very Wonderful World. Thanks for the image Shankar. I am also sharing the link for this one in a million song for those who want to view the image with the song playing in the BG ... re=related

I am simply stumped and stunned by your image. When I saw this image, I remembered your TG Halli image which is as simple as this!! In this image, I love the geometry in the frame coupled with an emotional touch ( the clouds! ). I also like the contrast difference b/w the greens and the blues.

On a lighter note, I would title this "From TGH to Golden Gate" :D ;-)

Visiting this image again and cant help put a few words more! I have never seen an image exuding as much a life as this one, yet with such a simple composition and clarity insight. Its one of the best I have seen.

Harsha, Thank you, it's a great song. I remember listening to it in one of the movies. It's a beautiful song for beautiful nature out there.

Cheers, Shankar Kiragi

This is a piece of wonderful 'seeing' to have thought of including both the cloud and the peak in one frame and bind them together! The cloud is so high up that I would have never thought of marrying it to what's below. Wonderful work!

Beautiful composition and an apt title too! The blue sky is magical. TFS.
