This was taken the same morning as this free study entry.

I cloud only stayed on top of the mountain for a moment and I almost missed it while changing lenses. A population of 2 million people live between where the camera was and the mountain. The resulting haze in the air made the processing fairly difficult.

Here is a large copy of the image

It was one of my favorites in the look back challenge! Definitely a good choice.

Great image, I love the hazy hills disappearing into the foot of the mountain. And that cloud is like cream topping the cake, very nice. Might do well in the challenge.

I love those clouds...and the do change quickly. I think you see them more over the western mountains? I see them only occasionally here over the Smokies, and I almost never have a camera on hand when I do. Sometimes they can look like flying saucers parked over the mountain tops.

I went to see it on Flickr. What a difference a larger dimension makes. The cloud hovering over the peak is fascinating.

Really nice! I almost thought that was Mount Rainier from Seattle for a minute! I usually see this beautiful mountain from the other side.

I'm with ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' salmiakki - find this much more unusual than your fs entry and just as beautiful. Love the layered hills in the foreground, too.

What a spectacular photo and location. The foothills are magic and the 'hat' just seals the deal.

That's a lenticular cloud cap. Magnificent! Love the stacked hills effect below. This is a strikingly beautiful image.

Difficult, but you did it masterfully! Great capture and excellent processing.

I always wanted to capture something like this! Absolutely beautiful scene.
Hmm, I thought those lenticulars on top of mountains lasted longer, I guess one has to be prepared :).
