Photographer's Note

I finished the note to the last upload with the words:

"We all waited, facing a wall of darkness, with no sign of the distant mountains..."

All of a sudden, a pale sinusoid of snow-capped peaks appeared in the distance, stretching far from west to east. The crowd of photographers around me went silent, each of us overwhelmed with the spectacle unfolding in front of us.

Soon, the rising sun lit the tops of the mountains and painted them with an otherwordly orange glow. I held my breath and pressed the remote release button. The show lasted a minute or two, then the peaks turned yellow and then pale blue again.

Another image in WS.
