Catching the first light of the rising sun, Mount Whitney takes on a reddish hue much like the clouds at sunrise ... making it stand out against the blue sky. This beautiful sight can only be seen in the Lone Pine, California area because the surrounding mountains hide Mt. Whitney both north and south of Lone Pine. The blanket of snow, on an early spring morning, was provided by two days of rain and snow in the area.
Shark’s Fin and the nearby rocks framing Mount Whitney, the highest peak in the contiguous 48 states. The boa of clouds in the middle was a lovely garnish to differentiate the composition and add some interest.
