Peak Moods (1) - Stormy

From our new house we can see Pikes Peak (elevation 14,114 feet or 4,302 meters) so I thought this would be a good time to start a new series for Skywatch Friday. I'm calling it Peak Moods, and it will show occasional views of the Peak in various guises. The first one is taken when the clouds cleared one recent morning.
But the clouds moved back in, resulting in an obscured, stormy view a few days later.
I do enjoy seeing this mountain while I eat my breakfast every morning. I had to edit these photos to crop out all the rooftops, and they originally had no contrast so I played with the color curves; hopefully I didn't overdo it...

  5. Lucky you, Al - what an inspiring view! I see you've had clouds, too. I think sunnier weather is headed to CO for next week. Keep your fingers crossed!
