There is a common misunderstanding among some people when it comes to alpenglow. I see a lot posts talking about a gorgeous alpenglow when there is direct sunlight illuminating a mountain peak...which is just a gorgeous sunrise. Alpenglow happens when the sun still hasn’t risen or after it has set. Since the sun is below the horizon, there is no direct path for the sunlight to reach the mountain. Unlike sunrise or sunset, alpenglow is light reflecting off airborne particles which then seem to almost glow. Monte Fitz Roy is one of the best mountains to witness this gorgeous event. This shot was taken well before sunrise and the peaks were already starting to light up like firecrackers! I was also lucky it had recently snowed which raised the water level so I could get a slight trickle falling over the foreground rock. When I returned the next day the water level had fallen and there was no water left flowing over this rock. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I offer group workshops and post processing education. Visit link in bio for more info

Ironically many people think they are seeing alpineglow on Fitz Roy when it's actually light pollution from El Chalten
