Captured this amazing view in May of 2013 from the top of the mountain in the Canadian Rocky Mountains, just outside of Jasper, Alberta. We went up the SKYTRAM and this is just one of the breath taking views you get once you are on top. To view the first image I posted called "VIEW FROM THE TOP - JASPER NATIONAL PARK, you can Click Here.

Decided to work on this to make a entry to the B/W Challenge. First I used the selective took so I could bring out more detail of the mountains. Second I converted it into a B/W and last I used to make it smaller to upload here.

Many Thank You's in Advance for your Comments & Support.

Enjoy your day & take care. ♥ Skates

You are on top of a mountain and at the top of your game, Skates.

A beauty for the challenge.

Wow you sure get the feeling of vast area this is and the feeling of how high you are with the house and road side at the bottom,plus great depth of field and love the textures in the rocks and snow as well.

If you stare at an orange juice container because it says, "CONCENTRATE" might be a redneck.

You make me jealous Pat. In Australia our highest mountain is only 8,000 feet high - beautiful image.

That is really high up there Pat and it would not be a thing for the aerial challenged. There sure were some lovely views. This is a great take on that trip. Good work on your image and you will do good in the challenge.

My thanks to all who leave comments for my work and to those of you who like one enough to make it a favourite. To touch just one person that way makes each image worthwhile. . . . . . . . . .. . . . "The question is not what you look at, but what you see" ~ Marcel Proust

Impressive view of the mighty mountain chain. Good idea to
covert it to B/W so it looks much better.
