Monte Perdido covered in clouds

Monte Perdido, Spain

This Month in Photo of the Day: Nature and Weather Photos

The north face of Monte Perdido in the Spanish Pyrenees. The mountain was masked by the clouds for three days, revealing the glacier occasionally. It was really cold and there was a strong wind; the ambience was very impressive. It reminded me of the world of Tolkien. This place could have been the abode of some ancient gods or giant dragons.
