Backyard Alpenglow

Earlier this week we spent a couple of days in Rauris, Austria. Tuesday we had great weather, so late afternoon we went out to scout a location for some alpenglow shots. Spent about an hour driving around the village, but found nothing. Alps are to the south from there, and the deep valley walls mask most of the snow-covered peaks.

We gave up and went back to the hotel, just to find out that the ideal spot for an alpenglow shot was the corner of the parking lot! This is the resulting image.

After finishing this image, I was about to pack my gear and head into the hotel to enjoy the dinner and some beer. But the light show wasn’t over! I find the combination of monochromatic show/hills with vivid sky/clouds really pleasing.
