17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Alpen Glow on the Rockies

We were hiking back from Ypsilon Lake just as the sun was setting over the Rockies. We could see the beautiful alpen glow shining through the trees when we started getting close to a creek we passed. We set up shop to capture this beautiful sunset on the river just before the sun stopped shining through the mountains.
