Re: hmmm

Our pilot, with many years of experience in the area, positively identified the peak as Foraker, from a rather unusual angle.

Re: hmmm

From the Air?

Strange

what's with the pink color in the sky? Maybe an artifact from a polarizer on the camera looking through the airplane window? I can't figure this one out.

Unnatural at all, but real and credible ...

...through a hardware filter, like an enhancer/colorized polarizer or also with a normal polarizer only inside the airplain with special filtered glass.
Nevertheless the image is really nice and ... artistic.
