Hi Greg, always like captures of the Stanley. I found the background mountain range a bit TOO BLUE IMHO. Thanks for posting.

@digicam At this altitude of 7,500 feet, you get blue, those mountains are called Lumpy Ridge, and are about two miles behind the hotel, so much is due to the atmospheric compression. Also much moisture in the air due to snow storms, melting snow. That is where the blue comes from on long lenses. Having a white out as I write this......what happened to spring?
