Description
Colorado's Sierra Blanca Massif is part of the Southern Rocky Mountains with no less than four 14,000+ ft peaks -including Blanca Peak, the fifth highest mountain in the continental USA - among this stunning complex. Situated at the Southern end of the Wet Mountain Valley, this group of high peaks is known for creating its own highly unusual weather patterns with amazing cloud formations. I took this image when cold air masses sculpted these incredible lenticular clouds looking like giant spaceships. These spaceship clouds stayed in place for hours, hovering and spinning in the vicinity of the Sierra Blanca, illuminated slightly from behind by the sun. I changed the original color image in Lightroom to B & W because I feel it has an even bigger impact as a B & W.
