The Egan Mountain Range

South of the town of Ely, Nevada

Here is what Wikipedia has to say about these mountains:

The Egan Range is a line of mountains in White Pine County, in eastern Nevada in the western United States. From Egan Creek near the historic community of Cherry Creek, the range runs south for approximately 108 miles (173 km), extending into the northern part of Lincoln County. To the east are the large Steptoe Valley and the even longer Schell Creek Range. To the west are the White River Valley and the scenic White Pine Range. To the north is the Cherry Creek Range, while to the south is remote Cave Valley and the southern tip of the Schell Creek Range.

The southern section of the range rises steadily, climbing to the high ridge of Ward Mountain. This crest is over 3 miles (5 km) long and, at elevations up to 10,936 feet (3333 m), includes the highest point of the range. The mountains then descend rapidly to the north, dropping to elevations below 6200 feet near the community of Ely.

I like the horizontal bands of textures, especially at the bottom with the brush. I get a feel for the vastness of the landscape.

great wide angle landscape! if i can make just one comment - i would have concentrated more on the foreground here because it holds a lot more interest for me than the slightly washed out sky... the mountains and the field in the look superb, sharp and clear!
