Mt. Whitney Alpine Glow Timelapse

May 8th, 2017

Woke up extra early to witness this beautiful sunrise over Mt. Whitney from Alabama Hills. I wish this were higher quality but it was my first time shooting with the Sony time lapse app and I accidentally recorded this to an .AVI format rather capturing the raw stills.
“Alpine glow” is an optical phenomenon in which a horizontal red glowing band is observed on the horizon opposite to the sun. This effect occurs when the Sun is just below the horizon.
