This photo was taken a little after dawn at Convict Lake in Sierra Nevada. The alpenglow was amazing and lasted for quite some time. Convict Lake is situated on the eastern side of the range which is made up of steep cliffs and very scenic vistas. Since it faces east you have to get up for the sunrise if you want to see the alpenglow. Sunset is beautiful as well but nothing compares to the beautiful reds and oranges reflecting off the stark granite.
