"Mt Whitney Night Glow"
Location: Alabama Hills, Lone Pine, California.

It is one of the amazing displays you can enjoy watching Mt. Whitney reflecting moonlight. I originally arrived here to shoot sunrise but while I was here I noticed the wonderful glow on the peak. A long exposure also shows a few star-trails.

Tech Info:
Lens: Canon EF 70-200 f/4L IS @ 200mm
Camera: Canon EOS 5D Mk II
Exposure: 30sec at f/5 and ISO 50

One has to really visit eastern sierra landscapes to truly appreciate its beauty. I don't think any photograph can do the justice of what it feels to hike on barren landscapes, camp besides some of the most scenic lakes and feel out of breath at high altitudes. Over the years I have had a few chances to hike on eastern sierra mountains including Mt. Whitney, but only recently I began to photograph it. So here are few images from one of the most unique places on the Sierra-Nevada mountain range.
