Give me lens to match my mountains....

The sun was streaming through a slit in the heavy clouds and lighting up the snow capped Oquirrh mountains across the way.
(Oquirrh is pronounced OAK-cure by the way.)
I think I would have needed both a more powerful wide angle telephoto lens to really do the scene justice. Do they even make a wide angle telephoto lens? Guess I need to find out!
The neighbor at the end of the street called out that he thought the scene was pretty amazing too, but I wouldn't be able to capture it without a specific filter on my lens.
With a little help from Picasa via darkening the photo and sharpening it, it came pretty close to the cold blueness shot with pinkish white light overhead.

The picture look a lot better enlarged. Enjoy what I often enjoy seeing at the end of my street in the winter!
(Not sure if the top pictures posted...here they are uploaded again.)

You captured it well. It looks quite different than a few months ago. Beauty in every season!

Awesome, Jill! I'm liking your new camera...almost as much as I like the scenery around where you live!

This is just so beautiful. Mountains are magical things to us because we live in the very boring and very flat midwest. You'd captured the magic perfectly.
