Super happy to be on the front page! The shot was three bracketed exposures at f22 so I have to give props to my wife Bev and especially my dog Shelby for sitting still during 1/20th, 1/80th and 1/5th second shots. Thanks for all the comments, I actually had to tone down sunís rays because they looked a little manufactured in my first attempt.

We love this area and walk Shelby there once a week or so during the winter because it doesnít usually get heavy snow. It is the location of one of the first Lewis & Clark camps after entering the Rocky Mountains, Sacajawea started to remember her childhood home at this location (she was kidnaped as a child) and helped choose the route west.

Incredibly beautiful scene and composition. Could just be the lay of the land, but horizon seems low on the right. Good detail and variation in grey values throughout.

Very nice job highlighting the rays! Nice surprise of the person and dog, too. Lots to take in - beautifully composed to let us do just that.

Personally I don't know if the dog and human were really needed in this picture.

Oh I just spotted the woman and dog!! Is the horizon slightly tilted to the right? I'm one of those weirdos that is bugged by that. Nice shot. ;)
