Alpenglow

I was down in Redlands (a small town in the San Bernardino valley) last week and caught this beautiful sunset.  This is looking west...
Looking behind me to the east, I realized one of my favorite things was happening...
Alpenglow!
I love it when the sunset colors the snow on the high peaks.  It only lasts for a couple of minutes, at best.  I
looked back to the west...
and snapped a quick (I thought) shot, but by the time I turned back to the east the mountains and the sky had faded into the blue of dusk...
I felt really lucky that I was there to not only see, but get photos of, one of my favorite natural things.

I'm linking with Our World Tuesday   and   Blue Monday  and   Through My Lens Monday

and    Life Thru the Lens     and   Pink Saturday

  2. Hello and welcome to Nature Notes. I love the photos and the color that appears especially as I don't live near anything like that. You certainly love nature and wildlife and all animals. I have two rescued orange tabby cats and I have the same book waiting on my Kindle .... I hope you see you again.. Michelle from Nature Notes and western NY state...

  7. And how very grateful I am that you were there, to be able to share such incredible beauty!
    I'd never heard of alpenglow. I can imagine the thrill of experiencing such a fleeting moment of magic on the snow covered mountains.

    So, so very lovely!

  8. Wonderful shots! I love the palms! And I'm happy to learn the term alpenglow -- we see it on the Blue Ridge -- quite a distance away but still beautiful.

  9. Gorgeous shots! I so love the way the sun rising and setting changes colors so quickly. This morning we had fluffy pink clouds and as I returned hone from dropping my hubby at the bus station the sky was golden! Wonderful photos and thank you for sharing them

  10. It has been a couple weeks of very warm Winter days here in So Cal, so glad you were close enough to capture the Alpenglow of our mountains. Hot, windy days at least reward us with amazing sunsets. Thanks for sharing!
