I really like the contrast between the warm-colored foreground and the cold-colored background. But all these colors are bright and the photo superb

the tundra is huge and wonderful. Your photography is so beautiful, there is a contrast between the warm colors of the ground (being icy) and the cold colors of the mountains and the sky.
Beautiful general composition

A superb "split" in the composition, texturally. I also love that cloud scape.

We also just saw signs warning to not walk on the fragile tundra in Colorado at high elevations. Those clouds rolling down are so cool.

Really dramatic - what's the risk in walking on it?

18 Oct 2018 8:06pm

@Daryl Johnson: The soil under the plants is very thin and rocky. The risk is that you will destroy the fragile plant life.

Elaine Hancock from Olney, United States

Absolutely gorgeous. I love the point of view, the light and the colors. The low hanging clouds are magnificent. An incredible image. 5*
