Port Valdez bay is surrounded by mountains that rise directly from the water and when the sun is very low during the middle of the Winter, the South side of the Bay is in the shade of the mountains all the time except when the sun occasionally passes between two peaks. The north side (which you see in the background here) does get direct sunlight but when the sun is setting only the peaks are lit up. When viewed from the South side, in the shade, it makes for some striking contrasts. I love this view of the shaded stream flowing toward the bay and the bright peaks. Always one of my favorite Winter scenes!
Any feedback is always appreciated.
