Spring usually doesn’t come to the High Peaks until May, but the beautiful alpenglow in this view from Mount Van Hoevenberg, taken in late March, gives a spring-like warmth to an otherwise wintry landscape. Alpenglow colors can be tough to capture in a photograph.
If a digital camera’s white balance is on auto, or sunny, the tones will most likely record as shades of blue rather than the warm pink tones our eyes see. If shooting jpeg, try a cloudy setting to see if it warms up the image. If shooting RAW, these the color balance and aplenglow tones can be adjusted and enhanced gently during post processing. For this shot, I used a Nikon D300S, 18mm, f /10 at 1/2 sec., ISO 200.
