So, while vacation out west a few weeks ago, I woke up at 4am got out of my warm bed at my Bro and SIL's and drove to Guanella pass for a hopefull pretty sunrise. Snow and ice lead my way on the road to this location, I get there and Toyota is there setting up for filming something for a car commercial. gosh there were tons of people on that crew just to get one glamour shot. but they were'nt in my composing shot soo I carried on.
here's the New car you might see in a commercial someday with Guanella pass in the background,
sorry the picture is blurry only 1/80 of a second, and I only took one shot as I felt guilty about taking the picture quickly in the first place and put my camera down quickly after I took it, there were crew around me and stuff, haha did'nt want to be hauled off to jail or something for taking a sneak pic of a new model haha

IMG NOTICE: [NOT AN IMAGE URL, NOT RENDERED INLINE]

anyways that was the sideshow the real show starts right now wink wink
It was super cold and windy and I suffered to get you these shots gosh that wind was blowing through me, haha in fact one of the crew guys I talked to said they noticed me up there on top of the hill and said man that guy is hard core!! it was freeeeezing. crazy things us landscape photogs go through sometimes huh.

here's a 8 shot pano I did
you can click on the flickr link if you want to see the 2600pixel version I uploaded there.

Nice! The weather on Guanella Pass can certainly be unpredictable. :)
