Recognizable Landscape Abstracts

As I’m a little short of recent mountain photographs of my own, I am using photographs sent by my daughter as references for a series of ‘recognizable’ landscapes.

Although I have climbed to Ptarmigan Cirque on the other side of the Highwood Pass (just east of Elbow Lake which can be seen across the highway in this painting) I have never been on Pocaterra Ridge, so I was unconstrained by any personal recognition of this view while putting together this 'recognizable' abstract.
