Sanford and Suns
Here is Mt. Sanford, your everyday, picture-perfect mountain. It provides a perfect background for our research facility as evident in this classic view. (Everybody with a camera on site has a picture like this !)
Enter a few clouds, and the game of light and shadow begins. It brings out the texture in the landscape beautifully. It looks to me like a giant white silk cloth put up for a display, like you can pick it up and fold it !
Mt. Sanford is the tallest mountain in the region, so it also gets the last rays of the sun, which creates this flashlight-from-above effect.
(Note: Does anybody know how to upload multiple pictures to the same blog using hello from Picasa ? I would appreciate your input.)
