Yesterday we featured a black and white by Forrest Pangborn as our Photo of the Day. Today’s Morning Shot is an almost identical shot but I like it better.

Jason Armstrong is resposonsible for today’s Morning Shot.

Today’s awesome Morning Shot is a beautiful shot down the ridge of the Mathes Crest near the Cockscomb (very distinct looking peak in the foreground) by Taylor Davis. I love the way the clouds add dimension to the shot. It’s almost like sizing plants small to large to make a Japanese Tea Garden to give […]
