Teton Alpenglow

Brilliant sunset alpenglow light on Mount Owen, 12,928 feet, and the Grand Teton, 13,770 feet, as seen from Cascade Creek to the northwest - July. The weather the entire day was overcast and drizzling, but I set up my camera anyways before sunset time. I thought I started seeing hints of a warmer reddish light on the peak but friend thought I was crazy... but a few minutes later the peaks lit up with some of the most amazing light I've witnessed.

I wonder...

...how high on the list of best photos ever on SP this one will go?
Probably right into the top 10 and it deserves a place there.
Very nice.

Magnificent dreams

The Grand Teton is great in this alpenglow beauty. My dreams to climb this fascinating mountain won't never be acomplished.
