Old Mike Peak in Taos, NM

Nothing made by humans in this view

You don’t know what this is until you see it and it’s gonna get you. Just let your eye be drawn to dead lower center in the shadows, in between the bands of sunlight. I didn’t see it until I opened the image on my iMac. It’s Old Mike Peak at 13,113 feet! Solid rock and ice!It was freezing when I took this telephoto shot at seven thousand feet. How cold must it be up there? In the freaking wind? If you were up there now, you’d probably be dead. Someone would find your blackened frozen fingers poking through the snow in May and steal your phone.
