Mount Whitney First Light

Alabama Hills area, eastern California

The first light of sunrise hits the top of Mt. Whitney in the middle (the tallest peak in the lower 48 states), then it hits Lone Pine Peak off to the left, then it spills down the slopes and lights up the foreground.  The first half-hour of light here is truly enchanting.
