About Today’s Photo:

In contrast to yesterday’s somewhat brooding view of Camel’s Hump, I got this shot yesterday morning from the top of Bald Hill. The summit was just emerging from morning orographic cloud cover into the light of a bluebird day.

    • Thanks Dave! It was a pretty special moment as the summit had been completely hidden in clouds just a minute before.
