Alpenglow and Crepuscular Rays from above

In the morning of November 11, 2010, Anke Morbitzer from Gladbeck, Germany could enjoy the alpenglow from above during a flight from Milan over the Bern and Pennine Alps. Especially impressive were the shadows of the mountains being projected upward into the haze. Just before, also the upcoming twilight with its impressive colours had been very exciting.

  1. Gorgeous photograph. Rich colour and detail in both highlights and shadows – not so easy to do, even at twilight. Well done to Anke for spotting and capturing those mountain shadows.
