The Lonely Mountain (I think you know where this is going)!

Any moment now a band of dwarves (and one hobbit carrying a certain Ring) will appear, seeking to reclaim the dwarven kingdom of Erebor from Smaug.  Out of shot, a few miles to the right, is Laketown.

Yes I see where you are coming from.
I was surprised to be there on such a sunny day. It shows the mountain clearly but It would look great with a moody sky too.
I will be going back :)

Imposing. A great, and different view :thumbsup:
It seems like many people include the waterfalls that are close by when they take this picture.
I'm glad that you went the opposite way, sort of. Bravo Lawrence :clap:.

Its strange when you go somewhere for the first time but you are already so familiar with it because you've seen it so many times in pictures. 
There were lots of people around so I just kept it simple. :)

Simple, uncluttered, and well-composed :thumbsup:.
Always my pleasure Lawrence :hug:.

Neat how the layers are piled up, as the land slowly rises from the water.

I can see what you did here. Trying to find a composition without too many people.^^ Very nice! :) Haven't been there but heared it's quite crowded usually.

It is very crowded in July unless you go in the middle of the night :)
I did want something different though :)

Yeah, you did well in that. It's different but still iconic. I know the "usual" composition everyone does there, so I guess most people were to your left a little higher.^^
