Description: Three months after taking these pictures, I finally got around to looking at this particular batch of images. After making some adjustments to them (contrast, highlights, shadows, color), I noticed an object in three of the pictures. They were taken from the White Mountains looking at the Sierra Nevada Mts. to the west. I used a Nikon D200 digital camera with a 400mm lens. The peaks in the pictures are in the vicinity of Mt. Whitney. To the left of the peak on the right is something that doesn't appear to move at all in the time the pictures were taken. There is a fourth image of the same scene taken about a minute before the others. It does not have the object in it. These were taken within an hour of sunset.

Comments: UFOs Northwest has received many photos of objects whereby the photographer did not see the object until viewing the photo. This is another one of those photos. I don't know for sure what the dark object is in the above photo, but it could be a bird or an airplane. Enlarging the area doesn't reveal any more detail about shape.
