Sunrise and Clouds on the Eastern Sierra, California

Sunrise and Clouds on the Eastern Sierra
Eastern Sierra Nevada, California

This panorama is cropped from a single transparecny from an Arca Swiss 4x5 view camera. Taken from the Alabama Hills at dawn.

Mt. Whitney is the middle peak, with it's summit just touching a cloud. It is higher than all the other peaks but is farther away. A cloudy sky, rare in this arid landscape, adds to the dramatic colors.
