For me, it's a monstrous elephant emerging from the mist.
All processing done in Adobe Camera Raw. Three smart objects adjusted individually: foreground, rock face/mist, sky - blended with masks. Tried to separate the elements while maintaining some of the gloom.

Thanks for the win! I’m not sure that there were other entries that were better but thanks. The photos with fog or mist are always a good challenge to work on. I have been using the extract detail filter in Nik color Efex to get more from the clouds. I will get a new challenge going in a little while.
