Morning Embrace

I was initially inspired by a shot taken here by Marc Adamus some time ago and have revisited this spot more than a half dozen times trying to get the right conditions. This is probably my favorite take so far.

Beautiful, Dave. Great light, color and scene. Nice to see some snow in the Sierra, too. Especially in this image.

This is indeed gorgeous, and the natural, not-overdone processing makes it even more so.

It is absolutely wonderful when alpenglow colors hit a snowy peak. This image gives a very strong and powerful impression. Great job!

This is a gorgeous piece of work, Dave. There is just something about a fresh snowfall that seems to elicit a sense of purity and cleansing to our surroundings and that alpine glow on the peak is outstanding as are those swirling clouds. Your patience paid off!

Love this! What a beautiful scene in wonderful conditions and you nailed it!!

I thought of Marc’s shot when I saw this…just because of the location, which I don’t see all that often. I really like this. The touch of pink is the icing on the cake.

I love the delicate pastel colors in this image, beautiful job with the processing on this one Dave.

Lovely image.
