Here’s another photo from Christmas morning at the Alabama Hills near Lone Pine, California. When I arrived, the sun hadn’t yet come up over the horizon, but there was a strong orange glow in the east, which is camera left in this photo. The shadow areas were lit by the blue sky overhead, so the result was a strong color contrast between the yellow light on the highlight side and blue light on the shadow side. This photo is looking to the west toward the eastern slope of the Sierra Nevada mountains. I believe the highest peak is Lone Pine Peak, and Mount Whitney is out of the frame to the north (right).
