I call this A Zen Moment because as I was hiking down from Chasm Lake, I noticed this cairn. I stopped and stared at it. Even in the rain and thunder, I found a moment of peace. Just one of those moments where nothing else around you matters.

So I dug the camera out of my pack and took this shot.

oooooh...I really like this. Great moody sky and I'm not sure if this was converted to monochrome or if the scene itself is monochromatic but looks great this way in my opinion

Yes it is and it's a perfect one. This image conveys power and strength, yet it is subtle and gentle at the same time - a very zen like concept. Very nicely done with no major technical issues and a terrific artistic impact. One of the better images in this challenge.
