Mount Thomson Alpenglow

Morning alpenglow on Mount Thomson, just 5 minutes or so after sunrise. Seen from Kendall Peak. This was one of my favorite views from a great 2016! Alpine Lakes Wilderness, WA. 10-22-16

Looks like a painting

That is so cool. It even doesn't look real. Great photo!

Re: Looks like a painting

Thank you! I was a surreal moment and quite a gift after being stuck indoors for over a month.

One of the best shots I've seen from this year. Especially cool for me to see since I've been up top on there.

Re: Excellent

Many thanks. I love it when the conditions turn out to be just right for something special to happen. Reminds me of this shot from one of your trips!

This is, without any doubt whatsoever... of the most beautiful and artistic photos I have ever seen on SummitPost!!! The light, the mood, the colors and especially the composition (!) are a dream!!!
Big congratulations for this one!!

How fascinating ...

I've been at the base of Thomson more than once, and each time I was there, there were
clouds and/or foggy conditions obscuring most or at least part of the mountain.

Thanks for capturing Thomson in all its beautiful splendor !!

Re: How fascinating ...

You're welcome! I've been fortunate to have had great views each time I've been up in that area, including my summit of Thomson in 2012. It's a special mountain for me for sure.

What an impressive peak! Very cool how it juts above the tree covered ridges. Great picture!

Re: Amazing!

The first time I saw Thomson it gave me that, "I must climb that mountain!!!" feeling. Seeing it at sunrise like this was pretty special. Thanks!

Mount Thomson Alpenglow

As said above - STUNNING!
This is one of the best alpine images I've seen. And to make it even better to me, it's my home state. Great work!
