Tetons Alpenglow

Brilliant sunset alpenglow light on the Grand Teton, 13,770 feet, and Mount Owen, 12,928 feet, as seen from Cascade Creek to the northwest – July.<br />

This was during a three night backpacking loop through Grand Teton National Park. It had been overcast and drizzling all day long, but I set up my camera anyways just before sunset time, just in case. Sure enough, I started noticing hints of warmer light on the peaks, and within five minutes, the sun dropped into a gap between the thick cloud cover and horizon, lighting up the peaks like a fiery spotlight. It was some of the most amazing light I’ve ever witnessed.
