Manly Peak is usually photographed from Zabriski Point.  I have long felt that the background clutter took away from the forms in the picture.  So, I decided to hike below the peak and after a full day of waiting, I found this scene.  The clouds nicely echo the base of the peak, forming a surprising complex view of a simple scene.  The trail winding through the image adds dimensionality.
